The feature that I like on Multitenant is the ease - it is very easy for my team to run the database.Maintaining databases is a valuable feature for us.The database becomes pluggable. Inside this container is called a pluggable database and each application contains this pluggable database inside Multitenant. We can then share resources like control files, memory, etc. This lets you stop and start each application without impacting the others. This resource sharing is the most valuable featureThe most valuable features are the speed and ease of use.

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.

This solution is a bit complicated when collecting from containers - that feature should be a bit better.It would be beneficial to include this solution with Oracle Enterprise, but Oracle charges additional fees for it.That said, Oracle in general doesn't invest in their UI for any of their applications. If we're talking about the dashboard or other user experience, there is room for improvement. I'm talking about on premises. The cloud version has started to improve.The user interface for this solution can be made better.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
For me, I will go with it if I have the budget. Some features are nicer than before, but at the end of the day, you always have a limited budget. I prefer to upgrade and get a specific hardware when possible. At the end, you will have to make a compromise. You will not get everything you would have liked to have.This solution is a little bit pricey.
