"The feature that I like on Multitenant is the ease - it is very easy for my team to run the database."

More Oracle Multitenant Pros »

"It would be good if they can maybe improve the mass import in the database. Currently, for importing a large number of data, we create a CSV file and upload all the things in the system. The system does not activate them by default. We have to do this manually. This may be due to the version we are using, but this is something we would like to see improved.""Master-master replication is something that needs to be simplified.""Maria DB has to improve from a management perspective.""It's not very stable. It needs improvement.""MariaDB doesn't handle long or complex SQL queries quite as well as Oracle Database.""The GUI could be improved a bit. The user interface needs to be improved.""It does not have tools for debugging procedures and functions.""The product needs more features and more functionality. It's imperative that it supports more platforms, and supports more operating systems."

"The licensing cost is approximately $4000.00 per year and the licensing is based on the software and the number of posts that you make.""When it comes to MariaDB, it should have a more cost-effective license.""I used the open-source version, which is available free of charge.""It's an open-source solution.""This is an open source solution with no licensing fees.""The price of this solution represents a very good compromise between the cost and what it offers.""This is an open-source product, which can be used free of charge.""MariaDB is open-source and self-hosted."
