Scalable with good analysis and diagnosis functionality

Pros and Cons

  • "If the solution is installed in your environment correctly, you are not going to have any issues whatsoever. It's problem-free."
  • "One of the things that I have noticed is that there are some services that will give you a hard time during implementation if you are looking at the documentation of Oracle. Sometimes the documentation information is quite limited. It's an aspect of the solution they could improve."

What is our primary use case?

We can use the product for so many things. For example, we can use it for integrating with different services, and as a middleware, using it to access the Oracle forms. I've used it with things like Enterprise Manager Cloud Control or Enterprise Manager.

What is most valuable?

Since I work as a database administrator, I like the way Oracle has Oracle database information. So it's quite easy for me to rectify issues pertaining to Oracle Database. Oracle has managed to allocate tools that can be used to analyze the problems when they arise. 

They've done tremendous work in terms of analysis and diagnosis. It's quite easy to use the database, provided you have managed to install it according to your Oracle standard. 

The solution has been very stable over the years.

We've found the solution to be quite scalable.

If the solution is installed in your environment correctly, you are not going to have any issues whatsoever. It's problem-free.

What needs improvement?

We've been very happy with the solution. I can't recall any missing features. It works well once it is installed correctly. If you install it incorrectly in your environment, you may run into issues.

One of the things that I have noticed is that there are some services that will give you a hard time during implementation if you are looking at the documentation of Oracle. Sometimes the documentation information is quite limited. It's an aspect of the solution they could improve.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for quite some time now. We've roughly been in production for more than five years now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very, very stable. It doesn't crash or freeze. It's not buggy or glitchy. It's reliable and offers good performance.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is highly scalable. I did try both Autonomous Database and Data Warehouse on the cloud. On the cloud, there isn't much. You need to work a lot on the data side where ever you want, how you want your data to be presented. Things like BI are going to present your data. 

We support a huge number of users. The number of users Oracle can handle is amazing.

How are customer service and technical support?

Oracle technical support has always been very good. We have no complaints. They are helpful and responsive and we are satisfied with the level of support they provide to us.

If you have an Oracle Support Account, you shouldn't run into any issues at all.

How was the initial setup?

There really isn't an installation process for the solution. It's on the cloud.

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

I don't directly deal with payments or licensing and therefore cannot directly speak to overall costs or licensing agreements. 

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer and end-user and we help clients that are also using Oracle.

We're using an older version of the solution.

As an IT company, we provide services to different companies. Right now we are working on a project which is running on an older version, 11G. It's a government institute. However, we support a huge number of users.

I always recommend Oracle for my clients, to those who are interested in engaging technologies. I always encourage others to also take certification courses. Oracle has had free courses for the cloud, and I really advise those interested in the solution to get in on one.

In general, I would rate the solution at a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Solution helps our clients migrate databases quickly to the cloud

Pros and Cons

  • "My impression of the scalability of Oracle Database as a Service is very high."
  • "The initial setup is complex. This is not a really easy solution. It is very large, so it's hard to install, but it's not impossible."

What is our primary use case?

Our clients have a variety of use cases for this solution. It can be used at gas stations and supermarkets. 

What is most valuable?

Clients come to us with huge on-prem databases. Because of the size of the databases, it can be difficult to grow to cloud. Thanks to Oracle Database as a Service, we can help these clients migrate quickly. 

Oracle solutions give our clients visibility.

What needs improvement?

No company is perfect, but Oracle does need to improve their support. They need to really focus on the customer experience, et cetera. 

I would also like to see them improve the Oracle Database Interface for distributor businesses.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have a year of experience with Oracle Database as a Service. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

My impression of the stability of this solution is also very high.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

My impression of the scalability of Oracle Database as a Service is very high.

How are customer service and technical support?

I think that Oracle's technical support could improve. When they understand what the problem is, they are fast and solve it quickly, but it is difficult to get to that point with them. Sometimes communication is strained by the fact that we're always talking to different tech support specialists. Maybe the solution would be a sort of segmentation of their tech support team by departments. They do have some good people, but it takes some time to find them because you have to go through their call center. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is complex. This is not a really easy solution. It is very large, so it's hard to install, but it's not impossible.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

For our clients, Microsoft is an alternative. Microsoft is cheaper, faster and has better support than Oracle.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
