We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

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

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.

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

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.

More Oracle Database Pricing and Cost Advice »

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.This solution is a little bit pricey.
