Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Oracle Database is the most widely accepted database, and it has built-in technical and security capabilities. It supports the new object in the database. The performance and security are very good, and it is user-friendly. There are a lot of people trained to use this solution which makes it simple to find assistance.""Technical support is helpful.""A scalable solution with straightforward initial setup.""The most valuable features of Oracle Database are the Data Guard because it does replication and the integration layer, such as GoldenGate.""The most valuable feature of Oracle Database is all the functionalities. When we write a code we sometimes have to create an explicit functionality to process the data that we want. At times we find that there is already existing functionality in data created by Oracle itself, it is helpful.""I have found the most valuable feature to be the performance. We have a large database in my company and there is not likely a solution that has the performance we need.""The database performance. We can optimise the database for authorising expenditure and other resource-heavy functions.""The interface is user-friendly."

"You can scale the solution as needed.""Multitenant has a container database with many pluggable databases."

Cons
"The interface is not reliable because the GUI is old.""Needs educational content that would help the individual to be able to work in a real life situation and scenarios.""It's not very user-friendly, and it's a little complex. Another issue that I don't like is the licensing complexity.""Once you start with Oracle you become locked into it.""There are a lot of additional costs. That is the reason we are only leveraging for transactional related purposes, so that we do not spend so much on doing the same thing on Oracle. That is the reason we are looking for open source databases now.""When it comes to Oracle, the only complaint that I have is their support. For business-critical cases, finding support is a little bit difficult because of the timezone difference. They should provide faster support to resolve issues on time.""The solution is very, very expensive. This keeps it as a niche product.""I would like to see more patches."

"Technical support could be faster.""The solution lacks a GUI for commands."

It is built on Oracle Database as well as on Oracle Exadata. This service supports various data types and simplifies application development and deployment from modeling and coding to extract, transform, load process (ETL), data analysis, and database optimization. The service achieves high results in:

    • Performance
    • Availability

    • Internet of Things (IoT) workloads

    Oracle Database Features

    Oracle Database has various features which users can utilize in their work with the solution. Among these features are the following:

    • Backup and recovery: Oracle Database ensures the integrity of users' data in system failure situations. This feature utilizes a tool named Recovery Manager (RMAN), which allows administrators to perform cold, hot, and incremental database backups, as well as point-in-time recoveries.

    • Clustering: This feature enables high availability of systems in order to run without interruption of services on occasions when one or more servers in a cluster fail. Included is a tool called Oracle Real Application Clusters.

    • Data dictionary: Through this set of internal tables and views, Oracle Database can be administered more efficiently.

    • Logical data structure: Through its feature for logical data structure, Oracle Database stores data in a way that allows users to interact with the database without knowing where the physical storage of the data is located.

    • Memory catching: Through the memory caching architecture feature, users can scale up very large databases and still perform at a considerably high speed.

    • Partitioning: This feature allows users to divide large tables into different pieces and store the pieces across storage devices.

    Oracle Database Benefits

    Oracle Database offers its users various benefits. Some of these include:

    • The solution decreases costs for organizations and provides a high return on investment (ROI) through the multiple services and features it offers.

    • Oracle Database has high-security protection which includes encryption, key management, data masking, and activity monitoring, that secures organizations' data within the tool.

    • The tool offers users the ability to use a single database for all data types, simplifying the process for them.

    • Oracle Database can be deployed in multiple places, including data centers and public and private clouds, which allows great flexibility for users.

    • The product allows applications from different platforms to communicate with the database through its networking stack.

    • Oracle Database is ACID-compliant, which helps maintain data reliability and integrity.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Paul S., president at Advance Consulting Enterprise, likes Oracle Database because it gets the job done, doesn't fail, and suitable for massively scalable applications.

    An Oracle DBA at a computer software company describes Oracle Database as reliable with good performance and very good stability.

    Oracle Multitenant - an Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition option – introduces a new architecture that enables customers to easily consolidate multiple databases, without changing their applications. This new architecture delivers all the benefits of managing many databases as one, yet retains the isolation and resource prioritization of separate databases. In addition, Oracle Multitenant enables rapid provisioning and upgrades, and fully complements other options including Oracle Real Application Clusters and Active Data Guard. p>
