The solution could improve by providing partitioning and encryption. It is not at the higher level of database solution but it could be with some upgrades.

There aren't a lot of people using this solution — it's not very popular in the marketplace. It's been around for 21 years, but not many people have heard of it. In the next release, it should support JSON, XML, and replication with third-party tools.

It would be good to have more automation and integration with the tools from other vendors.

I've never had any issues with the solution, so I can't think of any improvements it would need. It would be interesting if they added functionality with redundancy, reputation, and variability.

I think the performance and features of the program can be improved. The scalability of the performance when using more than one process is not so good. I would also like more or better security.
