What is most valuable?

* Highly distributed nature of the product (ability to scale on the cheap because it shares nothing hardware). * High Availability with automatic load balancing. * Table API in Java to massively… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It's given us a simplified programming and integration process for a highly scalable and highly available KV store, eliminating a significant amount of prior configuration and coding that was seen as… more »

What needs improvement?

Personally, I’d like to see some improvements in the monitoring UI for it. It doesn't require anything major, just some improvements in the feel and depth of information provided.

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

We use the Community Edition so pricing/licensing isn’t so much of an issue (we have evaluated the move to the Commercial Edition for some of the RDBMS integrations, etc).

What other advice do I have?

Try it! You’ll be impressed. I think that the vendor badge that is Oracle often puts people in the NoSQL space off (especially those coming from an OpenSource background), but the Community Edition is… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated and were planning for the deployment of the Sleepycat/Berkeley DB database which came out of the realization that MySQL wasn’t really the right solution for what we were looking for with… more »

What is most valuable?

* Velocity * Full Java control * Big Data * Scalability * Easy integration with OEP for event streaming

How has it helped my organization?

With Oracle NoSQL, our clients have a highly scalable, simple to set up database that performs very well when data is organized correctly from the beginning.

What needs improvement?

I would like to use SQL Developer (or another tool) to access NoSQL in read/write mode, not only in read-only mode. I would also like the CLI to be easier to use. Authentication is not easy to perform.

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

I didn't use another solution.

What other advice do I have?

Really, I like this product. I advise you to be open minded, and to plan the setup, how to organize data, relationships, keys, etc.

What is most valuable?

The features I've found to be most valuable are the speed of reading and writing (read/write performance levels are really high), the transactions model (semantics for data manipulation), and just the overall simplicity of using it.

What needs improvement?

There are a few areas for improvement that I can see, such as security improvements, better monitoring capabilities, and stability of each node. It also could use a better GUI.

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

We chose it because of our relationship with Oracle.

What other advice do I have?

The product is quite nice. It's very simple and was well integrated with the Hadoop MapReduce framewok. It lacks some stability and a good monitoring GUI, so be careful.

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.
