Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It creates a unified view of the entire architecture and performance factor, helping to manage the network more easily.
It has a remote access feature to manage the database from a remote location. This enables in-work collaboration.
I use MySQL for employee service in an OLTP database.
Support for enterprise-grade features like clustering, master-slave replication, even Sharding (to some extent) which is an advanced feature.
The most valuable feature of MySQL is the informative error outputs of command line interface.
We use MySQL for enterprise data storage as well as part of the back-end of websites and web applications.
Setup is easy. MySQL of various flavours has community editions to easily test, deploy, and run.
A lot of the software components have been trialed and tested for often more than 10 years.
We use the relational databases for government contracts.
I really appreciate the performance of Oracle. When using AWR records you can really see where a problem is. You can get advice about which queries are the heaviest for the database. You also can see advice for indexes. If an index isn't used, then you can just remove it to improve performance. This is a really good feature. Also, the JDBC connection is quite good. Finally, the object types are really good, the types of tables you can use in PL/SQL are also really helpful.
Using the product, we make less mistakes, are more organized and faster than if we did it any another way.
Compared to other databases, Oracle Database is very simple to manage in terms of the database itself.
It stores a lot of data in a short time.
It is flexible, scalable, and a true Enterprise RDBMS.
High availability using real application clusters.
It gives DB consistency, supports disaster recovery (DR), is tunable, and handles large DB sizes.
The only service which could be improved is its usability. The entire user experience needs to be revamped to meet the 2018 design standards.
When working with a cluster wide, I have to use the MySQL cluster version.
I feel that some tools which make it easier to create queries or make it easier for other functions would be really interesting to see.
Some problems with big table operations, and a struggle to keep the servers responding in peak situations.
It would be helpful if there were a graphical user interface to administer, configure, and tune it.
If it had something similar to Microsoft’s DTS engine then it would be the best database system out there.
MySQL needs improvements on its diagnostic features.
MySQL is not easily scalable on cost effective consumer grade hardware.
It is expensive.
There are a lot of bugs in the Oracle Database, and it would be better if the bugs would be solved more quickly than they are today.
In general, the support is not good since most of the time the person whom you are given to is not so professional.
Integration with big data would be helpful since we are planning to load a lot of big data.
A lot of features have bugs or choose the wrong way to process data.
Auditing could be improved, especially granular auditing. The unified audit trail in 12c is great, however its extraction in a highly busy environment is quite a challenge.
The compression does not give much value-add or provide performance benefits as was highlighted.
Cloud installations using Oracle are not supported by SAP.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Can range from free to quite expensive, depending on the environments and requirements, so better to really set goals ahead of setting it up.
MySQL Enterprise Support is not cheap, though might still be cheaper than Oracle or SQL Server. They may not have local support depending on where you’re based, but there are many smaller agencies out there that will readily provide support. You’ll need to spend some time looking around.
Enterprise editions and support are definitely needed for the heavy users who need direct support.
When you know the setup will continue to grow, make sure you have the paid support.
It is an excellent product, as long as the organization can afford the price tag.
The price is very expensive for the support.
The main issue where I feel that Oracle still has a problem is with the licensing. Licensing is still expensive and the reason why today most startups use other, cheaper databases. Those other databases are much less sophisticated than Oracle.
The license cost need to be optimized. The licensing cost is very high compared to other RDBMS.
Be prepared to pay for consulting services, and do not underestimate the time required to find and hire good quality database administrators.

Until its recent acquisition by Oracle, MySQL was possibly the most renowned open source database enterprise package that could be accessed completely for free. With the merger, the server increased both its features and its price tag, but there is still a free version available to the general community to contribute ideas and suggestions.
MySQL is a fast and relatively inexpensive database management system. It can easily integrate with a wide variety of programming languages, and it is considered to be a very reliable option. One of the most prominent features that customers seem to enjoy is the easy scalability of this system.
Oracle Database 12c introduces a new multitenant architecture that makes it easy to consolidate many databases quickly and manage them as a cloud service. Oracle Database 12c also includes in-memory data processing capabilities for breakthrough analytical performance. Additional database innovations deliver new levels of efficiency, performance, security, and availability. Oracle Database 12c comes in two editions to fit your business needs and budget: Enterprise Edition and Standard Edition 2.
