Pros
It is a reliable database warehouse solution that is transparent to the end user.The performance of the solution is impeccable.The solution has very robust integrity due to how it is designed and implemented.On-prem, Oracle is the number one database technology.The feature that I worked with and that excited me the most is one that is not available in other databases, and it involves the use of Java Runtime.From a database product perspective, I would say, they're good in what they provide. There's not much concern.The reliability is the solution's most valuable feature. We've had great success with the solution.We find technical support to be very responsive. They briefly describe everything on phone and we handle the operations. I'd say we've been more than satisfied with their level of service. They're quite helpful and knowledgeable.

The most valuable aspects of this solution are the fast caching and improved performance to the databaseThe scalability of the solution is very good. It's able to support large amounts of data.The solution is very fast.Normally, every database server uses hard disks. In-Memory has a feature, apart from their database, which is very good. When we start our server, all your data needs loading memory. We can use that. It's a very good feature. I think they added this feature in 2019. We can mount memory in the partition, create partitions in there, and create table space from that spot to share. It's a really good feature. We use it a lot.

Cons
The pricing is the one sticking point for the solution because it is very expensive.While working with 20-30 terabytes is okay using this solution, if you have Big Data, data that's much bigger than that, you will run into issues. It's a problem I have right now. They should support much more data.The solution can be quite expensive for small and medium-sized enterprises. Not too many companies can actually afford the pricing.Oracle needs to improve its cluster technologies. They need to improve in the cluster technology using ARC due to the fact that sometimes people think that they have a redundant server when they are using ARC with the cluster and think that will increase the performance. In reality, if they are using ii with a big workload, sometimes the performance is not increasing, and can sometimes actually impacts it in such a way that there's some degradation in the performance.The integration with other vendor solutions needs improvement. It is difficult to connect to other hardware.If their database encryption features could come in bytes, that would be a major improvement. They should bring the encryption model to their standard databases as well.The main thing we find could use improvement is the licensing costs. It is quite expensive relative to other database vendors. Cost always comes up as an issue for us as we consider upgrade paths. It's not as easy as we would like it to be.We don't really find that any features are lacking.

They should lower the price. My customers think that it's too expensive.Technical support is below our expectations currently. It could be improved.The solution is quite expensive.We use some partitions in In-Memory. We have a very large table and a low dose. It is very expensive in data to load all of them into In-Memory. It takes up more memory slots in the server, as well as a lot of RAM. We use last partitions on the table. We always need to create a script and make a schedule that can load a last partition in In-Memory. Oracle doesn't have features to do this automatically. I would like them to allow us to load last partitions, as well as other table partitions, in In-Memory. I think a good feature would do that automatically, letting you see a table, load a large partition, and monitor loading memory. It's quite a good feature.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is something that Oracle should work on to make the product more affordable, especially to businesses in third-world countries.Our licensing costs are between $40,000 and $50,000 per year. Those are the costs that cover maintenance and licensing.It is an excellent product, as long as the organization can afford the price tag.
