HP Oracle Database Machine primitive, slow, expensive, power-hungry and high TCO?

Netezza thinks so:

The HP Oracle Database Machine is primitive, slow, expensive, closed, power-hungry, cannot handle advanced analytics and requires significant management overhead.

But other than that, it’s not a bad start for Oracle!

There are some others making similar noise such as Chuck Hollis, VP -- Global Marketing CTO @ EMC Corporation. In a recent post he highlights a disagreement with Kevin Closson, Oracle storage guru and one, if not THE one, behind the HP Oracle Database Machine. See:
