Floyd Teter on Exadata: Out of my league

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

Floyd Teter, a consultant with Oracle partner Innowave Technology, vice president of the Oracle Applications Users Group, and former systems engineer for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, had this to say about Exadata. Remember, Teter is an apps guy, and Exadata is a database box. Anyway:

But as an apps guy, it just doesn’t excite me much. And, looking from the perspective of a small or medium size business, the cost is probably way out of my league. Maybe it will get more traction with SMB as a deployed system for hosting cloud-based services, but that remains to be seen. So the resurrection of big iron isn’t really doing much for me personally.
