Head of Department at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees

The solution is quite stable and reliable. We use it mainly due to its general stable nature.

There's a lot of flexibility for us to create a DB schema. 

They provide some replication for us - XDR, or something like that.  

So far, we do not have a lot of issues. It's pretty problem-free.

The initial setup is pretty easy.

The stability is very, very good.
