Oracle Database In-Memory Review

The most valuable feature of Database In-Memory is that it's really fast.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of Database In-Memory is that it's really fast. We need very fast transactions that occur in the milliseconds. We've had a lot of traditional solutions that we've had to throw out, losing a lot of money in the process, in deciding to go with Database In-Memory. For us, it's proven to be very fast.

How has it helped my organization?

We can get analytics very, very quickly without needing to direct data to separate databases or change our applications.

What needs improvement?

It's good and it functions, but it's not the easiest add-on to Database to work with. It's still new, so hopefully it'll be improved in later versions.

For how long have I used the solution?

We started with Database In-Memory probably a a few months ago.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We didn't have any issues deploying it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The numbers show that it's very stable and very promising for high-transaction, low-latency systems.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't needed to scale it yet in the two months we've been using it.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

There was no such software for Database prior to this.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was pretty straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it with our in-house team.
