We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The solution's stability, performance, enhanced functionality, and replication are all great features.This solution has made financial reporting possible by allowing financial people the opportunity to set Informix to "Auto Pilot" so that they can attend other duties.Every version is faster than the previous.

The scalability of the solution is very good. It's able to support large amounts of data.The solution is very fast.Normally, every database server uses hard disks. In-Memory has a feature, apart from their database, which is very good. When we start our server, all your data needs loading memory. We can use that. It's a very good feature. I think they added this feature in 2019. We can mount memory in the partition, create partitions in there, and create table space from that spot to share. It's a really good feature. We use it a lot.

Cons
There should be more intelligence surrounding discovering data to be able to automatically create indexes.This solution is in need of more current tools.I really would love to have a QT plugin.

Technical support is below our expectations currently. It could be improved.The solution is quite expensive.We use some partitions in In-Memory. We have a very large table and a low dose. It is very expensive in data to load all of them into In-Memory. It takes up more memory slots in the server, as well as a lot of RAM. We use last partitions on the table. We always need to create a script and make a schedule that can load a last partition in In-Memory. Oracle doesn't have features to do this automatically. I would like them to allow us to load last partitions, as well as other table partitions, in In-Memory. I think a good feature would do that automatically, letting you see a table, load a large partition, and monitor loading memory. It's quite a good feature.
