What is most valuable?

* Transactional data store * Concurrent data store

How has it helped my organization?

This product helped us to develop a performance-critical DB backend module in the healthcare domain.

What needs improvement?

Environment corruption is a common problem found when a DB environment is used by more than one process on a machine at a time. Another thing is that an entire page will be locked when updating a… more »

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

Since I am a technical person, I don't know any good details about pricing.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had a previous solution. Because of its proprietary nature and non-conformance to our performance requirements, we considered this product.

What other advice do I have?

Because I was primarily concentrating on the performance side of this product, one will have to first benchmark their own performance requirements. Next, consider concurrency requirements. Then… more »

What is most valuable?

Deployment (file-based database), and replication were life savers for my assignment.

How has it helped my organization?

The firm needed a database that could hold sizable volume, along with fast performance. We had many relational database options, but because the communication format of data was mostly FIXML, we really wanted to avoid changing the data… more »

What needs improvement?

There have already been a lot of improvements since I last used the technology. However, I would be excited to see how the technology has developed into the area of blockchain. Also, technical support is something they should improve.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Oracle 10g XML was the closest to this product. However, open source along with opportunity to explore and add gave us the reasons to go ahead with this technology.

What other advice do I have?

We always had predictability, and by using a custom-built data service layer with plugins, it provided us a lot of scalability, fast turnaround for our fast-moving business requirement and huge data. We were quite satisfied with the… more »

What is most valuable?

It is a relatively easy to use key-value store. As a NoSQL solution, it has been around for quite a while, and thus been thoroughly tried and tested. It provides ACID transactions, which is not very common in the NoSQL universe. Response times are relatively fast. It runs as an embedded DB within… more »

What needs improvement?

We have experienced two limitations: - Oracle BDB Java edition does not support bulk retrieval of entries via their keys. In situations where various entries need to be retrieved, individual calls by key need to be made, instead of just firing one request with all of the keys. There is the… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did evaluate other key-value stores, and opted to use BDB because of its stability and support.

What other advice do I have?

As a key/value store, Oracle BDB is simple to use, and it provides ACID transactions for companies that cannot afford eventual consistency. Oracle provides good documentation on the database, and when all else fails there is a community ready to help.
