Oracle Database Review

Delivers High Availability and reliable database functionality

What is most valuable?

  • Reliability of the database
  • High availability

What needs improvement?

It is good as it is. I've seen the product evolve over a period of time so it is great as it stands right now.

There's always hope for improvement because it's getting bulkier and bulkier. I wish that it would get a little smaller, smaller inside the footprint.

The only other thing I can think of is, perhaps, a voice control command.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's always been stable and we believe it will continue to be stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In my organization we don't have the need for scalability as much because we are a fixed size. We grow very organically so scalability is not an issue for us.

How are customer service and technical support?

Absolutely, support is huge for us, to be able to get the best quality support. They are pretty reliable. We have good Oracle support, direct Oracle support. OTN (Oracle Technology Network) we use them a lot, so Oracle support and the online, those two.

In terms of getting to the right person, sometimes it's a hit or a miss but mostly, eventually, it works out.

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

No, this was the first solution that was implemented. It has stood the test of time, always a good thing.

How was the initial setup?

It's straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

When it comes to choosing to work with a vendor we look for the value proposition. Price to performance, the ratio, that is the biggest thing to look at.

Oracle Database is value for money.

Choose the vendor, horses for the courses. Choose the right vendor and just move forward.
