Has good data encryption and data reduction but the solution is constrained

Pros and Cons

  • "The features that are the most used by the customers and partners are, at the moment, for GDPR, so obviously data encryption and data reduction. Our customers also like the partitioning option."
  • "It is really constrained as an environment because you cannot change something that would be useful. It is a very good product because it is very similar to what you have on-premises. Yes, it is constrained, but it is expected because it is a platform as a service so it has to be constrained."

What other advice do I have?

My recommendation for this solution would depend on customer needs. As you may know, Oracle has a lot of different offerings for database service because it has the standard database service, there is an autonomous database, there is Exadata Cloud Service. So there are lots of choices that the customer can consider. It depends on the specific customer needs, so usually, I do an assessment to really identify the correct solution for that customer. I would rate it a seven out of ten.

Good support, stable, and offers encryption at both the column and table level

What is our primary use case?

The primary use of this product is to encrypt data contained within our Oracle database, allowing us to protect confidential information. One of the options is to encrypt column information, but we can encrypt entire tables, as well.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the data encryption option for columns and tables."
  • "Having a single command to encrypt a table would be an improvement."

What other advice do I have?

So far, whatever requirement or needs that we have had, are handled by the database itself. We have not needed to design anything aside from it. Overall, it is a good solution and I can recommend it to anybody who wants to encrypt columnar data and protect it against theft. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
