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

Pros
"The scalability of the database is absolutely guaranteed by the new features.""The stability of the solution is very good. I wouldn't have used it for the past seven years if I was not satisfied.""The solution overall is very, very good. It's got good integration with other databases and adds new features often.""The initial setup was straightforward.""The most valuable feature is the data aggregation function."

"The most valuable features are the price, stability, it is scalable and is used by our clients in small business environments, and it is a simple product to use.""It is easy to install and easy to manage. There is no license on it, so it is free. There is high compatibility with Oracle, and there are many tools for the migration of data from Oracle to Postgre.""The database has excellent performance.""Clustering will be the number 1 feature. It is also open-source so it is free. It can also be clustered, to allow fault tolerance.""With the database, you can provide a multi-component at the same service with the same performance, scalability, or all those things.""The product is quite flexible.""What I like is that it's quite powerful in terms of performance.""The built-in code procedural language is the most valuable. It has a built-in layer for code procedures. Its installation is very easy and quick, and it is free. It is also stable, and its performance is also good."

Cons
"The support is not that great. They're not really supporting directly anymore and relying on experts to figure out technical issues.""Sometimes MySQL does upgrades on the server. When we are still using the old server and when they integrate the upgrade, they don't carry along some of the old syntaxes. The versions don't sync.""The solution should offer memory management.""Integrating business intelligence or NLP solutions would help us save time and would prevent us from having to take a deep dive. Data problems seem to multiply on the system when you interact with it. Automation would save a lot of man-hours.""The technical support is in need of improvement."

More Oracle MySQL Cloud Service Cons »

"The user interface for the clients could be easier to use as they are small businesses. From a technical support perspective, the documentation could be improved.""It still needs to be more mature and have some backup feature. We are normally dealing with Oracle's data, and we have very strong online tools to back up the data and do other things. PostgreSQL still needs to do more in this area as well as in the high availability area. There are many external tools that you can use for PostgreSQL's high availability, but there is no embedded tool within PostgreSQL for high availability. It could have a feature similar to Oracle for working on a distributed system. It can have some scripts to improve the monitoring and some tools to do performance analysis. We have a workaround for most of such requirements except for the support for a distributed system, which is very difficult to have. This area should be included in the core of the database itself.""The user interface could be a bit better.""It could be improved by using parallelization. You want basically, distributed computing.""The database and applications can become very slow.""The pricing could be better.""I had some issues when I integrated with the Jupyter Notebook.""PostgreSQL doesn't have a feature for temporal SQL, which is useful for gathering versions of data. This feature should be included in PostgreSQL. This feature is available in MariaDB, SQL Server, Oracle Database, and DB2."

"Affordable solution.""It is free. There is no license on it.""It is also open-source so it is free.""PostgreSQL is a free and open-source database.""It is free, but if you need support, you can go for the commercial version called EnterpriseDB. They provide paid support, and they can even do hosting for you if you want standby and support.""PostgreSQL is open-source, so if capable admins are available then the setup cost can be $0.""It is open-source. If you use it on-premise, it is free. It also has enterprise or commercial versions. If you go for the cloud version, there will be a cost, but it is lower than Oracle or Microsoft.""The solution requires a license."

Top Answer: It's a standard reliable database management system.
Top Answer: The solution doesn't cost anything to use. It's open-source.
Top Answer: The interface could be much better. Maybe it took a little bit longer to understand the menu options and so on. On top of that, it's a web interface. It makes it uninteresting to look at. It's not so… more »

Overview

Oracle MySQL Cloud Service delivers a secure, cost-effective and enterprise-grade MySQL database service. Built on MySQL Enterprise Edition and powered by the Oracle Cloud, it provides a simple, automated, integrated and enterprise ready MySQL cloud service, enabling organizations to increase business agility and reduce costs.

PostgreSQL is a powerful and fully-featured database management system with which business owners can create object relational tables. It is an open source project that can be acquired for free and heavily focuses on elements such as extensibility and strict standard compliance. PostgreSQL is a flexible server system that can manage large workloads that are being contributed and accessed from a wide range of locations such as in a network, as well as small-scale projects like a single machine or user.

Some technical details of interest about PostgreSQL include:

  • Its MVCC (Multi-inversion concurrency control) allows fluid changes to be made to the system without cumbersome roadblocks, while maintaining the optimal level of ACID.
  • Replication, built-in binary replication is available from the 9.0 version and later.
  • It offers a wide range of indexing capabilities, including B-tree and hash indexes, as well as GIN and GiST (generalized inverted indexes and generalized search trees).
  • It uses procedural languages that make it easier for developers to expand the database.
