I would recommend In-Memory because it is a robust and scalable RDBMS. We are able to achieve high availability. I would rate it a nine out of ten. They should improve the licensing cost.

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 now, but it's more for big data. For us, it's the best solution we can get for our specific needs.

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. If they do not, I'd suggest they look at something open-source like MySQL or Oracle SQL. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

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 it's improved from the last version three years ago. Oracle's new features and data are very useful for us for storing data, loading it, etc. Oracle features based on processes are good. In Oracle, we just have four functions based on data types, but in post-production, we have more than ten functions. That is very useful for us. We'll add more functions and features like index and categorization based on data type, output, and large data. That would be very useful.

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