When I am working with a large team of developers. Also, when a security policy, you are not allowed to install any app on your laptop. Cloud 9 is well integrated with Cloud commit. So we don't have to spend time in configurations.

Almost all development activities (the tool is called "SQL Developer", not "DBA Toolset") can be done easily and quick with [Oracle] SQL Developer. From data model creation (tables, views) to development (creation of procedures, functions, packages) and then testing (SQL Developer includes an easy to use debugger), all tasks can be performed in a single tool.
It may not be as complete as other solutions for DBA tasks like instance monitoring, but it is usually OK for development and testing environments if you want to do some basic troubleshooting.
Read full review Pros It provides an extremely intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so adapting to it does not take much time. It contains the most common programming languages. It allows the export of files, either directly to the repository or to the team where you want it. It is housed in the cloud so you can work with it from anywhere. Allows you to share code or work on them with others in real-time. Does not require installation.

The SQL Worksheet is an editor that allows for execution of SQL statements, scripts, and PL/SQL anonymous blocks. SELECT statements can be executed to return results in a spreadsheet-like 'grid' or can be executed as a script such to emulate SQL*Plus behavior and output DBA Console allows users with administrative privileges to access DBA features such as database init file configuration, RMAN backup, storage, etc. Read full review Cons Confusing documentation - AWS's documentation remains quite confusing, and the layout of other services/settings that you have to use with Cloud9 can be a bit of a handful. Sometimes slow - As the size of a project increases, the editor gets increasingly slower, and starts slowing down the browser overall. Long setup process - The setup for Cloud9 can be hard and tough, especially since the documentation is quite hard to understand.

Inability to view multiple tables of a database side-by-side. When trying to find correlations between tables, it would help to be able to see them at once on the same page.

It allows most users to perform daily activities in a simple way, with no cost since the tool is free.

The interface for Cloud9 needs some improvement. It is simply not as powerful and intelligent as a local text editor would be and thus it lacks the capabilities of fast filling when coding. Otherwise, I think it has a fair interface that they have tried mimicking an IDE.

[AWS] Cloud9 offers specific features not available in the competition: Code collaboration using the chat features is the highlight which sets it apart. [The] code completion feature makes [it] very similar to the offline IDE like eclipse. It's much easier to use compared to
. It provides terminal access to EC2 instances and hence other amazon services.

I have started to use
Toad for Oracle
recently because it is easier to sort and filter results, due to their memory sort feature that puts the results from your query in memory so that you don't have to rerun your query. I have used SQL Developer to easily update records in tables that I need to fix. I haven't found an easy way to do this in Toad other than writing SQL insert statements.
Read full review Return on Investment We save time since we do not need to configure files or our equipment. We have the most appropriate tools for software development in one place. We can work from anywhere so if that day we could not get to our office or something we can do from home. We can code with a single browser. Read full review It gives 100% return on investment as it is free of cost. No need to have multiple tools for each database Considering the employee training, so one can save money on training, as it is not very hard to use so still savings. Read full review ScreenShots
