"MariaDB is easy to install and is stable and scalable."
"The performance is very good."
"The solution is very easy to implement."
"The solution's high availability is its most valuable aspect."
"The most valuable feature is that it uses multiple cores, which is better than some of the other databases."
"MariaDB performs well as the backend database for our cloud-based telephony solution."
"MariaDB is stable and the initial setup is straightforward."
"What I like best about MariaDB is that it is open-source and reliable."
"The thing that probably stands out the most about Oracle Database is reliability. I have been working with Oracle Databases for over 25 years, and I have never lost any data due to a machine going down or any events that were not stupid human tricks. I've never lost anybody's data using Oracle. It gets the job done and doesn't fail."
"I love the performance tuning feature of Oracle Database because it provides hints and indexing, which are very valuable. Some of its other valuable features are its rack, record key vaults, and backup compression."
"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."
"There is a lot of functionality in Oracle Database. The reports and the GUI are good."
"Oracle Database has high-level features that are very good."
"I like the enterprise features as well as the stability."
"Oracle offers good security and supports customization."
"I found the ease of backup, partitioning, and robust indexing most valuable. The main feature of Oracle is the structure of the database. The way your backups are taken on the online backup system and the way it restores and handles partitioning of your data are also valuable. Its performance is great, and it is also very flexible."
"It would be helpful if I could specify multiple drives for the database storage."
"With respect to clustering and the master-slave configuration, sometimes the slave goes out of synch."
"Replication could be better, and it's not so simple. It would be better if they had a replication server. It would make things a lot easier. You need to have that replication server, but not in the same server farm. Then there will be a bit of latency between both because you should have one in one city and another one in a different city. That kind of solution should be more baked into every single database today. Mirroring the database in a live environment where any record written on the production server replicates instantly across the fiber on the other server wasn't easy. Many people don't even bother with that, and they just run one server."
"Master-master replication is something that needs to be simplified."
"The license should be cheaper and closer to that offered by MySQL, Oracle and other products."
"MariaDB doesn't handle long or complex SQL queries quite as well as Oracle Database."
"The GUI could be improved a bit. The user interface needs to be improved."
"It would be good if they can maybe improve the mass import in the database. Currently, for importing a large number of data, we create a CSV file and upload all the things in the system. The system does not activate them by default. We have to do this manually. This may be due to the version we are using, but this is something we would like to see improved."
"There are SQL plan flips that are happening with version 12c. We would basically like to have the next version wherein we don't see such plan flips because they create performance issues. There are quite a lot of features that I would like to see, but this is the main one for now."
"There is a lot of room for improvement. Ease of use is probably the biggest complaint. They're getting somewhat better, but it is not as easy or intuitive as it could be in terms of maintaining and managing the database."
"Problems can arise if there are too many requirements or a lot of details which must be applied to connect the software to the database."
"The price of the Oracle Database should be cheaper."
"While working with 20-30 terabytes is okay using this solution, if you have Big Data, data that's much bigger than that, you will run into issues. It's a problem I have right now. They should support much more data."
"There is a lot that can improve in Oracle Database. For example, it could be more user-friendly and should be easier to integrate into the cloud."
"The product is pricey and expensive."
"It could be slightly more intuitive, but other than that, we really like it as a solution."
