Why Read This Report

Forrester recently interviewed 16 Oracle customers who use Oracle Exadata to find out about their implementations. Most customers stated that Oracle Exadata exceeded performance and high-availability requirements to support their mission-critical applications. Unlike other database appliances from Teradata, IBM Netezza, and Microsoft SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW), Oracle Exadata supports data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP) applications in a single appliance. In addition, Oracle Exadata runs packaged applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS), SAP, Oracle PeopleSoft, and Oracle Siebel applications without modifications. Oracle Exadata's hardware and software components are integrated to improve performance and achieve high availability for OLTP and data warehousing. In addition, Oracle Exadata can consolidate many databases to lower cost and improve manageability. Forrester estimates that more than 250 customers are currently using Oracle Exadata in production, and this is likely to triple in the next 12 to 18 months.
