What is Oracle Multitenant?

Oracle Multitenant - an Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition option – introduces a new architecture that enables customers to easily consolidate multiple databases, without changing their applications. This new architecture delivers all the benefits of managing many databases as one, yet retains the isolation and resource prioritization of separate databases. In addition, Oracle Multitenant enables rapid provisioning and upgrades, and fully complements other options including Oracle Real Application Clusters and Active Data Guard. p>

Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Oracle Multitenant pricing:
  • "For me, I will go with it if I have the budget. Some features are nicer than before, but at the end of the day, you always have a limited budget. I prefer to upgrade and get a specific hardware when possible. At the end, you will have to make a compromise. You will not get everything you would have liked to have."
  • "This solution is a little bit pricey."

Enables you to stop and start each application without impacting others

What is our primary use case?

I primarily tested on the cloud but I tried the on-premises version once.

Pros and Cons

  • "The database becomes pluggable. Inside this container is called a pluggable database and each application contains this pluggable database inside Multitenant. We can then share resources like control files, memory, etc. This lets you stop and start each application without impacting the others. This resource sharing is the most valuable feature"
  • "That said, Oracle in general doesn't invest in their UI for any of their applications. If we're talking about the dashboard or other user experience, there is room for improvement. I'm talking about on premises. The cloud version has started to improve."

What other advice do I have?

I will give it an eight out of ten. The feature set is good, but Oracle is too complex. Anyone that has experience with Oracle knows that their product design or idea may be very good, but when you go to work it will take you hours because it is very complex. Nothing is complete. I know that when I work with them I'm stuck with the product. Oracle is tough to implement and get it utilized for everything, but once it's implemented, it becomes stable. They give you a lot of promise, but you will face a hard journey when working with this product. It's not an easy product.

User friendly database that is easy for my team to run

Pros and Cons

  • "The feature that I like on Multitenant is the ease - it is very easy for my team to run the database."
  • "This solution is a bit complicated when collecting from containers - that feature should be a bit better."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to anyone considering it. Oracle is a more automated database. Everywhere now I see more and more automation and it is the best administration. You can always use Multitenant. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate Oracle Multitenant a nine.
