Data center house of horrors: The systems vendor from hell

In this sixth slide of the data center house of horrors slideshow, Oracle's terrifying systems support is detailed.

 

The systems vendor from hell


You plop down $1 million for your spiffy new machine. And another cool million or two for the requisite supercharged software. As you look at your smoking-fast database appliance, you think you’re done, right?

Not so fast. Welcome to Oracle’s house of horrors. Mwhahhahahahahahaha.

Given Oracle’s 12%-per-year maintenance charges on hardware and the even steeper maintenance on software, you’re in for a world of fright going forward. And don’t forget the downright horrifying software and hardware audits you already undergo. It’s a never-ending horror show!
