With ODA, you are not buying a general purpose computer on which you can pay-as-you-grow license Oracle database.

With ODA, you are buying an appliance. A plug-it-in toaster that pops up data, and happens to use Oracle RDBMS as the current engine.

 From that point of view, you - based on your analysis - do not fit the target demographic. Nothing wrong with that. /Hans
