Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Oracle Database has high-level features that are very good.""The most valuable feature of Oracle Database is its stability - one can trust that the database is always working.""The autonomous database simplifies everything.""They continue to improve and are always introducing new features.""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.""The reliability is the solution's most valuable feature. We've had great success with the solution.""The solution has an endless capacity.""The ease of migration between databases."

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

More SingleStore DB Pros →

Cons
"The pricing of the product could be better. It's too expensive right now. They need to bring down the cost.""I would also like to see more features added and the stability needs improvement.""The solution can be quite expensive for small and medium-sized enterprises. Not too many companies can actually afford the pricing.""I am not very satisfied with the support at times. You don't always get the support at the time you want and need it.""The monitoring of processes that are executing could be better. I find it very difficult to find processes that had been in a suspended state in order to stop them.""The main thing we find could use improvement is the licensing costs. It is quite expensive relative to other database vendors. Cost always comes up as an issue for us as we consider upgrade paths. It's not as easy as we would like it to be.""We don't really find that any features are lacking.""Their local support can be better. Local support is a challenge in Africa for all IT companies."

"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."
