More Oracle Database Cloud Service Pros »

"The most valuable features are the speed and ease of use.""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 feature""Maintaining databases is a valuable feature for us.""The feature that I like on Multitenant is the ease - it is very easy for my team to run the database."

"We're actually going through licensing issues and are looking to perhaps changing to another solution, something that is perhaps open-source."

More Oracle Database Cloud Service Cons »

"The user interface for this solution can be made better.""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.""It would be beneficial to include this solution with Oracle Enterprise, but Oracle charges additional fees for it.""This solution is a bit complicated when collecting from containers - that feature should be a bit better."

More Oracle Database Cloud Service Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This solution is a little bit pricey.""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."
