We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The feature I find most valuable about this solution is the reliability.
The most valuable features of this solution are the cost optimizer and partition exchanges.
It has automatic memory management capability and large file capability.
The features that we find most valuable are Data Pump, GoldenGate, and the RMAN (Recovery Manager).
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.
We've found the solution very reliable overall. It's very fast.
The product is very expensive.
The cost of this solution needs to be improved.
The Oracle Database could improve on integration with other infrastructure systems like Active Directory.
This product would be improved with Support Services for more production access.
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.
The interface is not easy in comparison to the SQL Server. It could be more user-friendly.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
SQL Anywhere cost us about $400.
