Most Helpful Review
Find out what your peers are saying about MongoDB Atlas vs. Oracle Database as a Service and other solutions. Updated: September 2019.
372,124 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Scalability is its most valuable feature, as it is pretty simple.
It has a flexible integration with our easy API.
It is nice because our developers create tables whenever they need to sync data.
Its most valuable features are high availability and zero maintenance.
You can start quickly on projects which allow you to store many things.
It enables us to get work done quickly and get to our data.
As a tester, it was easy to validate data, access data, make active run queries against it, and retrieve data from it.
Our databases used to be in-house. Now, they are in the cloud with MongoDB and everything is much easier.
It is a product brought to you by a company that concentrates only on database solutions, so it is the best at what it does.
One of the key features is Oracle Database as a Service. We chose to implement it as a service, which provides good performance, for example. Flexibility and other features let us implement database research with the SQL team range of features also.
When we want more information on something that we are using, it is easy to find related topics on the internet.
Scalability is very easy. If you want to, you can make it onto two or three servers, racks, or whatever you want. It's easy.
Improves client satisfaction by decreasing their problems.
Not only does it provide a mature, reliable solution for DR. It also helps if application owners need to look into data which is a couple of hours old, using Flashback Database on the standby database.
Data Guard is the best solution for Disaster Recovery.
The Oracle Multitenant feature of 12c is awesome. This feature enables us to consolidate disparate databases under one container database and eases manageability of the databases. It also allows us to scale.
The cost needs improvement.
During the configuration, we did some migrations where we had to reindex about 70,000 indexes, which took around an hour. They should improve this and optimize the indexing.
We had some bad trainers when we first came onboard and would rate them fairly low. They did not seem staffed properly to fulfill the training services that they offered.
The cost needs improvement. The product is good, but the cost that we paid for it is expensive, so it wasn't that valuable.
I would like a more comprehensive dashboard.
Going forward, we would like to have pure AWS Cloud (native) storage instead regular storage on the AWS integration side.
The import and export process needs improvement, i.e., getting in and out. Moving data from other databases into MongoDB, along with indexing, was challenging.
The UI application for MongoDB crashes a lot, so we would have to use a third-party plugin to make it work.
The interface can be difficult and there may be so many features that users and even vendors are unaware that they exist.
The direct scaling is a feature that has room for improvement. I would like to see virtual management machines that can scale storage well with zero downtime. The backup option and patching would then be much easier to do.
In the next release, I would like to see a framework for memory management.
Some of the technical features could be improved. They have a problem with some of the object types. I think this is one of the issues which is needed to be improved.
I would like to see a better dashboard for the storage. It need to be more complete overall.
My favorite option – Multitenant – should be available for some pluggable databases in all editions, without any fee.
An 8GB download for software is far too big. Nowadays it should be possible to simply use RPM packages on Linux/Unix.
Some bugs could be fixed. There have been some internal software bugs, just like any other newly released software. These bugs gets fixed by patch updates from Oracle on regular basis.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing could always be better.
The pricing is good. We originally chose it over DynamoDB because of the pricing.
It is too expensive. They need to work on this.
In my previous company, the product allowed use to build a database in a highly regulated environment with the ability to get distributed storage. We used MongoDB as a distributed storage to set up this environment for a critical business application with millions of dollars.
The purchasing process through the AWS Marketplace was very good.
The pricing and licensing is great.
The pricing may seem expensive, but the value corresponds to the quality of the product.
The price depends on the solution you choose: standard, enterprise, or high performance. For example, enterprise can start between 0.4 an hour up to 1,800. Additional fees also depends on what package you choose. Your feels will be different if you choose the standard, enterprise, high performance, or extreme package. You will pay in relation to what option you ask for. The price is very good if you compare it to other databases.
The licensing is a nightmare. Tons of options which need to be licensed individually, and no real offering for VMware or other Hypervisors.
There should be a standard way to license the database in a virtual environment (e.g. VMware) and there should be a low-end version (like Standard Edition One) again.
