What is most valuable?

The feature that was most valuable to me in this product — it will be different for different types of users — is that I could develop all the logic inside the database itself. There were no… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It does more of what a company like ours needs because it is a product that knows the business of data and data management.

What needs improvement?

I don't believe that any product is a perfect solution. I believe that each product has some minor disadvantage about which customers need to be able ready to work with or workaround. It may not be… more»

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

We are a value add software as a service house so we are not really paying the cost of the licenses, the customer is the one who pays month-to-month. The customer is paying the money for their Oracle… more»

What needs improvement?

A lot of the features are disabled by default. The solution should enable more features. I understand this could cause challenges to management for many clients using RDS… more»

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

We use the community version of the solution. I believe we only pay for the storage, but I'm not sure how it works exactly.

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

We are currently using a lot of other solutions as well. We have Oracle, we have PP2, and MySQL. We have a secret server as well.

What other advice do I have?

We're currently expanding multiple versions of the solution. We use the cloud deployment model and most clients are also in the AWS environment. I'd advise others to pay… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate other solutions before choosing RDS. Since we're using everything else that is Amazon, it seemed like an obvious choice.
