Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Optimization of databases, RAC, Data Guard Replication with Data Guard and RAC Database are the best features.""The solution can scale well.""I like that it's a robust product. It has very good features. One good feature is Oracle REX because, in SQL Server, we don't have that. SQL Server has something similar, but it's not the same stuff.""The most valuable feature is that it is a complete product with all of the functionality that you need, and there is no need for any special features.""The solution is a reliable database.""It's fast compared to other databases.""Overall, from a technical perspective, the solution is very strong.""The solution is very stable with the performance being very reliable."

"MemSQL supports the MySQL protocol, and many functions are similar, so the learning curve is very short."

More SingleStore DB Pros →

Cons
"Since the solution is from Oracle it tends to be complex when trying to integrate with other solutions.""The client-side of Oracle Database could improve. The client graphic user interface works on Java and sometimes it freezes, these should be fixed.""The user interface could be better.""If their database encryption features could come in bytes, that would be a major improvement. They should bring the encryption model to their standard databases as well.""There are a few errors for which Oracle doesn't provide detailed information. It doesn't clearly indicate the columns or lines for which we are getting an error. It would be better if they provide more detailed information for such errors.""The initial setup can be simplified.""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.""I have been looking for a virtualization database engine from Oracle. They have third-party vendors that can do it but if Oracle comes with its own virtual engine, it would be helpful. Additionally, the solution could be more user-friendly and improve the Transparent Data Encryption."

"There should be more pipelines available because I think that if MemSQL can connect to other services, that would be great."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Our licensing costs are between $40,000 and $50,000 per year. Those are the costs that cover maintenance and licensing."
  • "The pricing is something that Oracle should work on to make the product more affordable, especially to businesses in third-world countries."
  • "It is very expensive. We pay in dollars, so the inflation and conversion cost is also there for us. They charge on a yearly basis for the license."
  • "Its price is already low. Oracle has a competitive and cheaper price as compared to others. Oracle Cloud is cheaper than other clouds. The pricing is very competitive for Oracle Cloud to be in the market. Their pricing makes customers interested in using this product even though Oracle doesn't have a local data center at this moment."
  • "They are pricing themselves out of the market."
  • "It is expensive."
  • "It's expensive. I would say that it is more expensive than other competing products."
  • "It's not cheap, but sometimes, you get what you pay for."
