A stable and cost-effective tool that is fully compatible with Oracle

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and Tibero is one of the database products that we implement for our customers. All applications for Oracle work with Tibero and don't need to be customized.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is compatibility with the Oracle database. If you have knowledge of Oracle then you won't need additional training.

What needs improvement?

A feature for scheduling database management would be helpful.

The knowledge base is quite small and should be expanded.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have just recently begun selling Tibero.

This product is very stable. In the Korean market, many banks have used it for a long time and trust it with mission-critical service.

Our customers are enterprise-level financial organizations.

Tibero does not have a lot of technical information available yet. Oracle, by comparison, has worldwide knowledge sharing and support can be found on their website.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is simple and Tibero servers are easy to configure. The deployment will take about two months.

Migration from Oracle to Tibero is very easy and it took us about ten minutes.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of Tibero is cheaper than that of Oracle.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

One Of The Easiest Solutions To Scale Both Vertically And Horizontally

What is most valuable?

  • Threaded architecture, AI/O, HA, and DR.
  • Oracle standard SQL support.

How has it helped my organization?

Tibero has the mission to deliver reliable performance with a lower ownership cost. For those looking for a very solid and robust database solution, Tibero is a very strong candidate.

What needs improvement?

PL/SQL compatibility and cluster network. Listeners resolving on a name and not an IP address.

For how long have I used the solution?

Almost four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Tibero database is very stable. If you don't have a HW failure or a human error, it does not crash or remain unstable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Tibero is easily scalable. One of the easiest solutions to scale in both vertical and horizontal ways.

How are customer service and technical support?

Is efficient, very proactive with prompt responses. Patches and binaries are released very quickly.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Usually, Oracle and MS SQL Server. The big difference is cost. Tibero and Oracle perform very similar, and both are stronger than MsSQL. However, Tibero doesn't sell options, encryption, and compression on it as a built-in feature for the enterprise edition.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup if using automated install is very simple and quick. The binaries are very small and are capable of installing and creating the database in a matter of minutes. Some users think this is a demo version, but in fact, it is a full version.

Manual installation is a bit tricky, but one can get used to it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Tibero tends to be at least 60% lower in cost than other commonly used products on the same market share.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Not really, due to compatibility with other major database tools, and the pricing is what is very attractive.

If you want to compare on same price range: PostgreSQL or MS SQL Server, match in price, but not in features.

What other advice do I have?

If you are starting to develop something, it is a very good choice. However, if you plan to migrate complex database schemas, be aware of some program incompatibility or a need to adapt.

Proprietary connectivity methods, such as OCI, and the use of data providers may be an inconvenient to solve, if not well planned.

Great review, just adding an info that on enterprise no features are sold as options yet, on standard edition you can buy 4 features as options without going to enterprise edition.
