What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of the solution is that the metadata is just generalized. Metadata is the way that data is described both for technical aspects of building a database and for the user… more »

What needs improvement?

The server itself doesn't need much improvement. The product overall would benefit from the addition of better tutorials to help master the skills necessary to actually build a project database. Right… more »

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

I, unfortunately, do not handle licensing, so I don't know what the costs are for the product.

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

Previous to my position at the university, I worked both as an employee and a consultant and was very much involved with Oracle as a database for years, going back to 1997 and until about 2010.

What other advice do I have?

In August of last summer, we updated to the latest version of the solution. At least, at that time, it was the latest version. What the school does in its academics is make a minimum training… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

MySQL as a database is sufficient for the scale of the projects that I've been talking about for ht purposes we have currently. PostgreSQL, which I do not personally know very well, is something else… more »

What is most valuable?

MySQL is open-source. There are a lot of open-source communities trying to come up with their own patches, and to come up with their own features, which help MySQL develop faster than traditional databases like Oracle, which is closed source. The solution is also compatible with a lot of other… more »

What needs improvement?

The developers of MySQL, which are Oracle MySQL, Percona, and MariaDB, seem to not be focusing much on object-oriented replication. Basically, replication is based on a text level of replication. There is a text level replication in Oracle, that is so similar it can be implemented in MySQL, however… more »

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

I am not sure, what the licensing costs are for the solution. From my experience, there is no straightforward cost. You can get that cost from the Oracle website about the Oracle MySQL licensing costs, however, it's not a straightforward price code for everyone. If you are an existing customer, you… more »

What other advice do I have?

We are using MySQL 5.6, 5.7, and MySQL 8.0. In terms of advice, I'd say when implementing MySQL, if a company has been using any previous relational database, like Oracle, Microsoft SQL or DB2, the easiest way to migrate from any database is from Oracle to MySQL. There'll be some challenges from… more »

What is most valuable?

Oracle is simply a reliable data warehouse for us.

What needs improvement?

Our Oracle database is very expensive, so probably the cost is an area that can be improved. The cost of the product. The actual features that might need to be improved is a question that is better… more »

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

I am not exactly sure of the precise cost, but I do know that the cost of the product is very expensive compared to some other solutions. Even though we are in a third world country, we do not enjoy… more »

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

We have been using this Oracle solution from the time that I arrived at this company so there has not been any other product in use.

What other advice do I have?

The advice I have for other people considering this solution is that if they have money then they should go for it. We do not experience performance issues or trouble with throughput. It is probably a… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As far as I am aware this is the only product that was considered because of its reputation and performance.

What is most valuable?

Overall, it's a very good solution. The application development is very user-friendly. The SQL is great in Oracle. If you use other databases, you often have to find another syntax and develop in other languages. The user interface is… more »

What needs improvement?

The pricing could be improved. It would ideal if it was more reasonable. The design isn't that great. It's kind-of buggy and doesn't seem to cater to the Korean market. There seems to be issues relating to migration. It's difficult to… more »

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

The product is quite expensive. Organizations should be prepared for a rather high price tag. Our clients may end up moving to an open-source option to lower costs.

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

We've found another similar solution called Ignite that we are looking at implementing.

What other advice do I have?

We're Oracle partners. We've been partners with Oracle for a long time. Our IT department first changed from on-premises to cloud. Our clients seem to like a hybrid deployment model. Now they are considering looking for other solutions that… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution is very stable. The solution can scale well. We've had good experiences with technical support. The performance is excellent.

What needs improvement?

We use SAP HANA in our projects but it's very expensive for our projects. We need a relational database in-memory that can handle these issues. The solution is very expensive for us. It's hard for us… more »

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

The solution is very pricey. We're looking into other options because of this.

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

We tried GQ database but it's not a stable database. Sometimes the results weren't correct. SAP HANA is much more stable, which is why we use it, even though it's expensive.

What other advice do I have?

We are a customer. We don't have a professional relationship with SAP. SAP HANA is not just a memory database, it's a big platform. It's a very, very safe database. It's a very safe database and the… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We're looking at Oracle products as an option right now. We're also looking at MAT-V, a CPU-based database it's very fast, however, we do occasionally face issues with it.
