  • Side 18 how are you going to manage the Database on Power Machine ? you will need OEM on both case but you pay double on AIX. unless you want to manager database with TOAD ..For dba point view .. This is no sense presentation... 11gr1 is full of bugs and was live only for very short time as vanilla version
    Are you sure you want to  Yes  No

  • This slide-deck is filled with incomplete messages. Hopefully customers are smart enough to tell the difference. But for those who can't here is a custom made rebuttal:

    Slide 3
    1. Oracle sells hardware for flexibility solutions. Exadata is a system for database processing, so it has to be rigid in the configuration in order to achieve extreme performance. On the other hand is very agile because it lets the customer setup to adapt it to its workload needs with all the numerous features that come inside Exadata.

    2. Exadata is a new storage technology for database. Just deal with it!

    3. The is no standard for benchmarks in solutions, only in elemental systems. If you want to see proper testing check out: www.benchware.ch an independent firm from Swizerland that tested Exadata against traditional systems and the numbers are impressive.

    4. Scalability is very high to achieve with traditional systems because you leave the balancing decisions to the finance department. Here you can have true technology Scalability by starting with entry level systems and through upgrading paths leveraging your previous investments.

    5. Reliability is having the same system in thousands of customers world wide and if one crashes we now that the same problem will never happens to another customer again, because they all have the SAME system. With expensive traditional hardware you never know where to turn to in case of a crash. It takes months to figure out and even though you might never know the root cause. This is reliability.

    6. Virtualisation: Why would I want to embed virtualisation inside a system that can provision DBaaS? Or that has the most sophisticated fencing mechanisms? Just to waste resources...

    7. Who cares about the OS in a Database Machine? You don't want to be hassled by the AIX or SUSE packages, because it's a machine DEDICATED to database processing. In Exadata the OS is optimized, and every upgrades and updates in line with the database upgrades and updates. No hassle, no hidden complexities.

    8. This is an opportunity not a problem

    9. What is 'clear' about a system based solely on chip-performance? Oracle Exadata has a clear roadmap based not only in hardware refreshes but also in software enhancements and innovations.

    10. Risky is wasting valuable customer time and resources setting up

    Slide 9 refers to top-of-the-line system Exadata X2-8 with 128 cores, as a 'Initial' investment :-)

    I could go on but the fact is that you cannot compare apples with oranges. It's bad and an insult to customers intellect.

Business risk Proven platform Risky platform © 2011 IBM Corporation3
  4. 4. #1 – Configuration & price flexibility OLTP and Data Warehouse Have Different Design Needs IBM believes that designing and building systems optimized for specific workloads is the best approach  OLTP Systems – Run the business by processing the transactions that are critical to the organization – Utilization is driven by the number of users, not complexity of SQL – Smaller block I/O – 8K – Higher write - updated online, many index lookups Would you – Buffer, log and cache management are key to performance in clusters configure OLTP and Data Warehouse  Data Warehouse Systems systems identically? – Analyze the transaction data to provide strategic and competitive differentiation – Larger more complex queries with more table joins, complex SQL ORACLE DOES – Lots of large block I/O – 16-32K with Exadata! – 90-95% reads – Tends to consume entire environments  Mixing OLTP and Data Warehouse databases within the same OS is not generally recommended © 2011 IBM Corporation4
  5. 5. #1 – Configuration & price flexibility Exadata — Rigid and Lacks Customization to Client’s Workload You’re locked in to a fixed configuration that lacks the granularity to size YOUR workload to YOUR needs — Fixed node sizes, fixed ratio of cores-to-disks and fixed upgrade options  Processing and storage capacity are not sold independently — when you need to increase processing, you likely don’t need more storage – Typical Exadata system running OLTP can end up with 6x-28x more storage than required – When you need high-performance, you are paying too much for 100 TB of usable low- performance storage you may never use  Exadata storage nodes come with 5 TB of expensive flash cache and 100 TB of disk storage — whether both are required or not  If you have a ¼ rack and you want to upgrade, you have to move to a ½ rack – Doubling the size of your environment — even if you only need one more processor – Have to pay Oracle license and maintenance fees — even if you’re not using all that processing power © 2011 IBM Corporation5
  6. 6. #1 – Configuration & price flexibility Implement Lower-Cost Solutions Suited to Your Business Needs — IBM POWER7 Systems — IBM POWER7 Systems offer custom, Flexibility for OLTP and Data Warehouse client-focused Workload deployment configurations for YOUR specific workload with choice of processor speed, storage type, virtualization and the ability to scale both up and out! Upgrade existing systems OR integrate new systems into your environment based on your workload needs Leverage virtualization in application servers and development/test environment © 2011 IBM Corporation6

Practical Analysis: Do Oracle Exadata Do you want Gains Warrant the Risk? to take what By Art Wittmann, Director, Is Exadata More Trouble Than It’s Worth? could be a InformationWeek Analytics “career-ending By Matthew McKenzie, Editor in Chief, risk”? On the face of it, that Oracle makes a Enterprise Efficiency big deal out of performance is a telling mistake. Just like we no longer buy Who cares? According to a recent InformationWeek cars based on horsepower alone, IT Analytics survey, the real issue isnt whether Exadata purchases have long since ceased to performs better. Its whether CIOs are willing to risk tying be about performance. Factors like their companies — and their careers — to what they see value and risk are at least as important, as a deeply dysfunctional vendor relationship. and for existing Sun customers, the risks are just getting bigger. Heres the bottom line: Earlier this year, just 7 percent of IT pros said they had "no interest" in buying major Oracle Stacks the Deck with Integrated applications in appliance form from a Sun/Oracle combo. Hardware and Software: Convenience, Now, that number has more than doubled to 17 percent. Lock-in and Higher Prices Whats driving that change? According to InformationWeek By Dave Vallente, Silicon Angle Analytics director Art Wittman, the IT pros surveyed say its a toxic combination of an "arrogant" Oracle sales team If you don’t endeavor to manage Oracle negotiations in a deliberate and and an "inept" Sun hardware service team. thoughtful manner, like you would a Even if Exadata delivers the goods, Wittman writes, "The vital corporate project – the outcome benefit isnt sufficient to make up for what could be a will be simple. You will be eaten alive, your costs will go up, you’ll be hit with career-ending risk." audit bills down the road and you’ll be20 locked-in for a decade. © 2011 IBM Corporation
