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."

"Speed and resiliency are probably the best parts of this product.""For me, It's performance, scalability, low cost, and it's integrated into enterprise and big data environments.""Vertica's most outstanding features are the compression rates achieved and the speed of access of high volume data.""Allows us to take volumes and process them at a very high speed.""The performance is very good and the aggregate records are fast.""Eighty percent of the ETL operations have improved since implementing this solution.""It maximize cloud economics for mission-critical big data analytical initiatives.""It maximizes cloud economics with Eon Mode by scaling cluster size to meet variable workload demands."

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."

More Oracle Database Cons »

"The geospatial functionality could be designed better.""Some of our small to medium-sized customers would like to see containerization and flexibility from the deployment standpoint.""Support is an area where it could get better.""Promotion/marketing must be improved, even though it is a very useful product at very good price, it is not as "popular" as it should be.""When it is about to reach the maximum storage capacity, it becomes slow.""Fact-to-fact joins on multi-billion record tables perform poorly.""It needs integration with multiple clouds."

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."

"From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors.""It is fast to purchase through the AWS Marketplace.""The pricing and licensing depend on the size of your environment and the zone where you want to implement."
