Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This product has unique capabilities that lead the product category in test data management, cloning and recovery.""They will assist me in achieving whatever budget issue the client may be having."

More Actifio Pros →

"We have found the replication feature the most useful. We use this feature the most. The ability to recover a database with less effort and the use of Oracle Data Guard Broker to administer the complete environment are also very useful features.""Backup and application continuity are most valuable.""One of the most valuable features is real-time replication. The version we're using is reliable and easy to deploy.""The solution can scale as needed.""The most important feature is that if I want to test the database at the disaster recovery site, I can take a snapshot, test it, and then revert it back to the original state without needing to restore the complete database from the primary data center to the disaster recovery.""It's a very good solution if you want to protect your data across two data centers, or you have a middle man or many administrators who use these solutions for protecting their data. It's very reliable compared to other solutions that are most often not storage-based."

Cons
"While the product does support various databases, the company needs to make more of an effort to support N-minus-one compatibility.""Areas that need improvement would be the support for recovery in the physical environment."

More Actifio Cons →

"The usage of block storage devices in the cloud or migration of a type of storage from one site to another site can be improved. Currently, we have to use multi-node to single node because of the lack of storage support on the Azure side. It did not really work. Our DBA had to spend a lot of time tweaking the Data Guard tools, or the underlying Oracle VMs, to make sure that Data Guard would run on top of different types of storage. So, if it can support transporting or getting from one type of storage to another type of storage in a different site or a different technology, it would be very helpful.""Oracle could be improved by the ability to manage it on the cloud. This on-premises version is secure and reliable, but I'm sure that they will soon provide a cloud solution that will be even better. In one to two years, we will probably move to the cloud—we have already moved to the cloud with Microsoft Exchange, but our databases are still on-premises. I would prefer managing a cloud version of Oracle.""Overall, there are some operational issues that need to be dealt with.""One thing that can be improved is the GUI. It would be good to have a very nice GUI to easily configure and administer, providing different presentations to the database administrator. The feature that can be included is the integration with third-party monitoring systems, that is, monitoring systems from other vendors, not only from Oracle.""They may need to include the monitoring and the alerting part in Data Guard.""The IP implementation and maintenance are a little bit hard to manage across Oracle solutions, including Oracle Data Guard."
