What is Oracle NoSQL?

The Oracle NoSQL Database (ONDB) provides network-accessible multiterabyte distributed key/value pair storage with predictable latency. Data is stored in a very flexible key-value format, where the key consists of the combination of a major and minor key (represented as a string) and an associated value (represented as a JSON data format or opaque set of bytes). It offers full Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) operations, with adjustable durability and consistency guarantees. It also provides powerful and flexible transactional model that eases the application development.

The Oracle NoSQL Database is designed to be a highly available and extremely scalable system, with predictable levels of throughput and latency, while requiring minimal administrative interaction.

Proper dimensioning is the key to success with this solid performer

What is our primary use case?

We are using Oracle NoSQL with MariaDB as a service for a relational database used with some of our telecom solutions.

Pros and Cons

  • "The product meets expectations when it comes to stability."
  • "Handling big data in a user-friendly way is currently a bit of an issue. The dashboard for this needs some work."

What other advice do I have?

The only advice I can give to anyone looking at NoSQL is just to focusing on the dimensioning before starting any project. I have had some experiences in over-dimensioning and under-dimensioning in some projects. Investing in the dimensioning with respect to performance is the key to success. On a scale of one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I think Oracle NoSQL would be an eight. This is mostly because I think this Oracle is not a cheap product. I think that the licensing is expensive and this is means sometimes people will just try to avoid using Oracle based on cost…
