We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It has automatic memory management capability and large file capability."
"The feature I find most valuable about this solution is the reliability."
"This solution has the best performance, bar none."
"Oracle enables us to handle more than a million daily transactions."
"Oracle Database is fast and easy to use."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the cost optimizer and partition exchanges."
"I've never faced any stability issues with the product. I don't recall any bugs, glitches, or crashes. I'd say it's fairly stable and shouldn't cause anyone issues in that regard."
"Overall, from a technical perspective, the solution is very strong."
"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."
"The Oracle Database could improve on integration with other infrastructure systems like Active Directory."
"The product is very expensive."
"The documentation needs improvement because as it is now, providing support is a headache."
"The price tag is very high and most cannot afford it."
"Cheap and easy solutions for startups need to be made available."
"The cost of this solution needs to be improved."
"It could be slightly more intuitive, but other than that, we really like it as a solution."
"The database environment needs to be cheaper. By making it less expensive, Oracle would be more competitive with other database vendors."
"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."
"Our licensing costs are between $40,000 and $50,000 per year. Those are the costs that cover maintenance and licensing."
"The pricing is something that Oracle should work on to make the product more affordable, especially to businesses in third-world countries."
"It is very expensive. We pay in dollars, so the inflation and conversion cost is also there for us. They charge on a yearly basis for the license."
"Its price is already low. Oracle has a competitive and cheaper price as compared to others. Oracle Cloud is cheaper than other clouds. The pricing is very competitive for Oracle Cloud to be in the market. Their pricing makes customers interested in using this product even though Oracle doesn't have a local data center at this moment."
"They are pricing themselves out of the market."
"It is expensive."
"It's expensive. I would say that it is more expensive than other competing products."
"It's not cheap, but sometimes, you get what you pay for."
"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."
