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

Pros
The command-line interface is good.In terms of stability, I've found it to be very stable. I've walked into the server room when it was at 60 degrees Celcius, and it was still running fine.The most valuable features are the Self-Service, and the ability to search the data.

We use Data Guard for online replication from data center, to data center for high availability. This is the most important feature.The solution is quite stable. We haven't experienced any bugs, glitches, or crashes. We find it to be quite reliable.It's a very good solution if you want to protect your data across two data centers, or you have a middle man or many administrators who use these solutions for protecting their data. It's very reliable compared to other solutions that are most often not storage-based.The most valuable features are the backup and restore. With this in place along with the clustering, the database is safe from hacking, hardware failure, power failures, and system crashes.The solution has been stable so far.The solution is really very stable. One good thing about it, compared to other products, is that you can just run it and forget about it. Unless you come across some interruptions in the network, it works like a charm.We chose this solution for the availability of the databases. We can't afford Oracle Grid, this is the best solution if you want something similar that's less expensive.Technical support is very good. If at any time we write a ticket, we get the appropriate answer on time.

Cons
Setting up the system to work with legacy equipment is a bit complex at times.The configuration wizards are still complex and hard to navigate. These should be easier to manage.I would like the possibility to back up the infrastructure and then replicate it upon on restart, without having to orchestrate the starting of the VM.

More IBM ProtectTIER Cons »

It is a very useful administrative IT tool. It saves on costs.The pricing of the solution is quite high. They should do what they can to bring it down so that it is more reasonable for customers like us.The IP implementation and maintenance are a little bit hard to manage across Oracle solutions, including Oracle Data Guard.When the data replicates into the standby database there is a possibility of having a microsecond amount of data loss. The data loss occurs when there is a network disconnection between the primary and secondary standby database located in the data centers or if there is a crash in the primary database.It is a rather complex solution, so it could be more user-friendly.The implementation is complex for anyone who's jumping into it without any experience. It's all command-line driven implementations. For some, that's a turn-off.For every standby server you have, you must pay a licensing fee, which is the main disadvantage.The database administration needs improvement. With Oracle, we have a lot of features for administrating data, but it might be too many. It needs to be simplified. It should be automated. Looking at Enterprise Manager, there are too many KPIs in place.
