Oracle Database Valuable Features

Emmanuel Morka
Head, Database Administrators at Ecobank Transnational Incorporated
The solution has been around for a long time, so it's very mature. We've used various versions, from 8 to 12 c. The RDBM has a strong reputation. The solution is able to run on different types of machines, from IBM AIX to UNIX. The solution has very robust integrity due to how it is designed and implemented. The security is very tight. Users can be very sure of Oracle's safety. It has a variety of different security layers that make it very, very safe. Oracle offers a great disaster recovery tool called Oracle Data Guard, which is fantastic. The solution has very good failover capabilities. You can do it manually or automate the process if you like. It's all very transparent. You can query around the rack as well you call it the rack cluster. There's great availability. It helps to handle high availability within the nodes. Even if you have a problem with one server, the others are still available and will continue the job without going down. We work in a back-end environment that is mission-critical, and we cannot afford downtime. Oracle is a perfect solution, as it will never go down. Customers will always be served at any point without experiencing a delay, which is of vital importance to banking. Oracle is constantly working to improve its products. It now offers AI and machine learning capabilities to run queries. There's lots of research and development being done constantly. This ensures they are always one step ahead of other databases.

We are only really utilizing the solution for database purposes and only taking the database for backup purposes, on a daily basis. The database and getting the required data on the database have been very helpful. It's easy to use, it's robust, and it offers good security that we can count on. Most importantly, our users are familiar with the interface and the operational capability of this product. That's why we chose to use Oracle. While we don't interact too much with the database and interact more with our front-end application, we get good reports as it simply runs in the back end. It's a very comprehensive database, although we are using only the standard version, not the enterprise version. Even the standard version is quite good. It's very reliable. View full review »

* The most valuable feature for me is the pluggable database because it provides database consolidation and the solution for utilizing your resource. On the other hand, I find security products that are provided by Oracle very strong and not in comparison with any database vendor. * The encryption, database reduction, audit vault, database firewall: All of these products provide an extra layer of security when they are implemented in the right way. * Let's also mention real application cluster, and disaster recovery solution.

The feature I find most valuable about this solution is reliability. Whenever there was a problem, like hardware that failed, the data was still okay and not corrupted and that is very important for us. I am also really impressed by the scalability of this product. For example, whenever we need to add new space, Oracle makes it easy to extend and increase our performance. We don't have any corruption issues and we can add new space and without having to restart our database. View full review »

Scalability, reliability, and performance are what we are getting with this solution. It is highly scalable and has very good performance. It also has in-built monitoring and optimized optimizer. It is quite stable and secure. When it comes to integration, you can integrate it with other tools as well. However, we have been using Oracle Database within our own premises. So, it is kind of difficult for us to basically do a kind of integration with the outside software. We prefer to do things within our own premises. View full review »

This product has a number of features. The feature that I worked with and that excited me the most is one that is not available in other databases, and it involves the use of Java Runtime. There is also a feature that will trace the transaction and direct them to an FTP server. That was excellent. It is provisioned with very little additional cost. View full review »
