Oracle finding success with its Exadata solution
Sunday, April 29, 2012
Database giant Oracle is hoping its Exadata product will continue to push the boundaries of speed and performance after encouraging early reports from the field - particularly in the Indian market.
Oracle India vice president Sheshagiri Anegondi recently told reporters that the vendor is experiencing high demand for its Exadata services in many industries.
"Exadata started selling in India about a year-and-a-half back and we are witnessing solid traction for the product from across sectors like telecom, FSI, government and manufacturing," Anegondi said. "Exadata has emerged as our fastest ramping product in Oracle's business with a growing community of users and a strong sales pipeline."
While improved Oracle performance is helping organizations worldwide leverage the company's database solutions, increased competition is expected to come from an unlikely place. International Business Times reported that a four-year old startup is attempting to make a dent in Oracle's database success with competitive pricing and services.
However, experts agree that it will take more to dethrone Oracle, which announced its 2012 third quarter fiscal year results and overall revenue increased 3 percent to $9 billion.
