What is most valuable?

Normally, every database server uses hard disks. In-Memory has a feature, apart from its database, which is very good. When we start our server, all your data needs loading memory. We can use that. It's a very good feature. I think they added this feature in 2019. We can mount memory in the partition, create partitions in there, and create tablespace from that spot to share. It's a really good… more »

What needs improvement?

We use some partitions in In-Memory. We have a very large table and a low dose. It is very expensive in data to load all of them into In-Memory. It takes up more memory slots in the server, as well as a lot of RAM. We use the last partitions on the table. We always need to create a script and make a schedule that can load the last partition In-Memory. Oracle doesn't have features to do this… more »

What other advice do I have?

Oracle is the best database, but I love open-source software. Oracle always has the first original features for three or four years and we use them because they are stable and we can buy in a large scale and use it for our office. It has no problems. I think Oracle is ten out of ten. About Oracle Database In-Memory, in particular, I would rate it as eight out of ten. It's a new feature. I think… more »

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?

In recent versions, Oracle implemented storing the In-Memory column store contents in the database, to resurrect the IMCS quicker and in a repeatable way.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps to build successful mixed-workload environments. Thus, for smaller setups, it's enough to have one database setup, not two, and it saves one interface in between.

What needs improvement?

One very nice side-effect is the in-memory index. If this would be developed a bit more into being configurable, users could use it as a kind of in-memory partitioning… more »

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

The setup cost is not a big factor, but the engineer should have decent experience with Oracle's In-Memory system. License cost is a factor; the benefit has to be… more »

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

No, since there was no other solution offering in-memory without changing the SQL syntax.

What other advice do I have?

It is always worth testing or running a proof of concept to check its value.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We tried several ways to offload OLAP queries from the database, especially using a second DB system. We evaluated this product throughout the beta1 and beta2 phase.

What is most valuable?

The stability of the platform is the most valuable feature. The solution can support large amounts of data once the architecture is in place.

What needs improvement?

The solution could benefit from AI improvements. Technical support could be improved. The usability of the solution could be better. They should make it easier in terms of system administration and for getting examples of statistics from… more »

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

We have ULA agreements with commission in place with Oracle. The pricing is okay for now.

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

The solution was already in place when I began to work for the company. I don't know if they previously used a different solution or not.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model in the virtualization environment. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. If technical support was better and usability was improved, I'd rate it higher. It's the best solution on the market right… more »

What needs improvement?

I'm not sure about the improvements needed in the solution. The solution is quite expensive.

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

Oracle is a costly product.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd advise others to look at the solution, but to be mindful as it is costly. Whether it is right for a company or not depends on the requirements. If they have the budget, they should go for Oracle… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Choosing this solution was the choice of the database administrator. I didn't participate in the process, so I'm not sure what was used before of if other solutions were evaluated.
