What is most valuable?

The administration is the solution's most valuable feature. It's quite easy to install and use from a local machine or laptop, as well as on a server.

What needs improvement?

The lock files and login are two features we've had issues with. As far as I can see, there's no way to switch off the login in SQL Servers. If there could be a way to switch off the login, for transactions, or in operations, or tables, that'd be great.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Because it's the 2012 version, it's a one-off enterprise license that we have never had to upgrade. It's a perpetual license that you install and that's it. There are additional fees to this solution.

What other advice do I have?

Based on my experience it's easier to use, and there are a lot of resources online that can give you a headstart. By comparison, Oracle Database is complicated to use. I like the ease of use and quick data usage. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
