Oracle Database In-Memory Review

Simple to implement, very fast, and easily scalable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a warehouse. In the front end we are using MicroStrategy, and we are using Oracle as a database.

What is most valuable?

The warehouse is the solution's most valuable aspect.

The solution is very fast.

What needs improvement?

I'm not sure about the improvements needed in the solution.

The solution is quite expensive.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. Almost everyone in the company uses the solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

The solution's technical support is good.

How was the initial setup?

I did not install it myself, but the database administration team did, and they found it simple. In one day they were able to administrate the data stack file.

What about the implementation team?

Our team handled the implementation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Oracle is a costly product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Choosing this solution was the choice of the database administrator. I didn't participate in the process, so I'm not sure what was used before of if other solutions were evaluated.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

I'd advise others to look at the solution, but to be mindful as it is costly. Whether it is right for a company or not depends on the requirements. If they have the budget, they should go for Oracle. If they do not, I'd suggest they look at something open-source like MySQL or Oracle SQL.

I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
