I have always used Oracle Database.

What other advice do I have?

Before starting to look for the high-end solution (Enterprise Edition) you should consider using Standard Edition Two. There is a great chance that it will be sufficient, and gaps can be filled with… more»

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

Oracle licensing is expensive compared to other competitors, such as AWS and MS Azure.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Most of the DEV/UAT/TEST were on-premises, which moved to the cloud with consolidation.

What other advice do I have?

Any DEV/UAT/TEST environments are really candidates to go for cloud and ensure you fully utilize the flexibility of cloud technologies.

Yes. AWS and MS Azure.

What is most valuable?

The stability and the format and the speed of the database are very good.

What needs improvement?

Some of the technical features could be improved. They have a problem with some of the object types. I think this is one of the issues which is needed to be improved. If they could implement a managing tool that is better than the one they have now, that would be an improvement.

What other advice do I have?

I use some other databases, like Microsoft and MySQL, but they don't have the same performance as Oracle. I would rate this solution eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I didn't look at any other solutions.

What other advice do I have?

We looked at Dell storage, but we chose Oracle due to its performance, security, and scalability.
