Implement it earlier

Implementation was easy. System performs as advertised. Fairly short learning curve as well. Oracle Platinum support has had it's challenges. This seems like an immature process with frequent issues. We have gotten to the point that we require on-shore resources during Platinum support calls.
Understand the maintenance requirements.

ORACLE is q difficult to work with supplier, yet the project wa finally succesful. Cost too high
when dealing with ORACLE, please be prepared
the product is solid
it would be nice if ORACLE woulkd be more responsive to our needs and less greedy
we would consider leveraging big data technologies using open souce components

vendor has a good base offering, as a framework,
negiotaiate the best deal you can up front, and include upgrade costs
ability to handle load and volumes of data
vendor desire to have more of their products being introduced
work together as a collective organziationa
sort out the product and services team relationship....we are acting as the go between.
customizations take a good design to survive upgrades

Exadata is probably the best and most reliable Oracle innovation ever. It made managing complex, large RAC databases much simpler and more reliable. Implementation takes times and ACS and OCS resources are not always strong, requiring Oracle account team intervention. OMCS delivers -- at best -- just average management capabilities for Exadata.
Pay close attention to patching/upgrading complexity as Exadata makes managing Oracle databases more visibly complicated from the database standpoint. With normal commodity servers, storage, and networking, the complexity of managing these components is mostly hidden from the database and higher tiers whereas with Exadata, all of these components are managed together.
It simply works and works well.
Acquisition and ongoing operations costs.
Better support and ongoing operations.
More carefully evaluate and vet OMCS capabilities to run Exadata.
Oracle support is generally bad, although Exadata specialists are usually a higher quality than other resources at Oracle support.

The product is solid, but the support is terrible.
Hammer out a detailed support strategy as a part of the purchase process with key SLAs defined.
The storage and compute interaction
the support is terrible.
Have a better support staff.
No; we will still do it this way.
Absolutely terrible support

Product is high quality, but the vendor installation and configuration services have been challenging.
Review the configuration of the SuperCluster in detail -- do not take the vendor's word that it is configured properly.
Very high-performance platform.
Software configuration and monitoring are very difficult.
Much more detailed configuration plan, and better support expertise after the initial configuration are needed.
Review all critical features of the product, and ensure that the installer enables them as planned.
Support is inconsistent. Some support representatives are much better than others, and there needs to be better identification and routing of the best experts to help solve particular problems.

Glad to work with Exadata. Support from internal is ok. But its update process can be improved . Also, it should be needed to try how it work in cloud technology with 12c. We have established our 200 TB uncompressed enterprise data warehouse on that and it works effectively. We are still trying to integrate with relational and dimensional data warehouse and big data analytics and expecting to see results.
speed and usability
try to use in-memory solutions
response time is ok and support center willing to help.
