    IBM Cloudant

    Our organization found Cloudant most suitable if One, a fixed pricing structure would make the most sense, for example in a situation where the project Cloudant is being used in makes its revenue in procurement or fixed retainer — thus the predictability of costs is paramount; Two, where you need to frequently edit the data and/or share access to the query engine to non-engineers — this is where the GUI shines.

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    Pro - Stability. Does everything anyone could need. If it's not there it will be on the next update. There is plenty of support for it. It's been around for a long time and it's reliable. The support is well documented and has a great reputation.Cons - Errors have been found in the documentation provided by Oracle with guidelines, etc. Oracles salespeople have a reputation of being obnoxious and condescending.

    Pros

    IBM Cloudant

    • For us, performance and scalability is the key, and Cloudant DB backed by CouchDB is scalable and performant.
    • IBM Cloudant dB is very easy to provision for sandbox, development, QA as well as production.
    • Support for Java for CouchDB app server analytics enables a greater control for over developers.
    • Schema free oriented very easy to program and build applications on it.
    • We love it!!

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    • Robust - this product doesn't have a lot of downtime. It's less prone to errors than some other tools I've worked with.
    • Scalable - we can keep adding more things to it. We haven't hit any roadblocks when we've tried to do more with our database.
    Manish Garg | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    IBM Cloudant

    • It was only after we went with the cloud-based solution that IBM rolled out an on-premise version.
    • We found that a 3rd-party ODBC driver was required for a few applications that needed to pull data out of Cloudant.
    • The sales process was difficult because the salesperson we used was not as versed on Cloudant as I had hoped.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    • There is no access to the physical host of the DB. This is expected from a managed DB. Everything must be done through the console or via API calls. This is a new learning curve for the DBAs.
    • Due to the lack of physical host access, certain features are not supported, such as Transportable tablespaces and Oracle LogMiner.
    • Certain special data types, (such as XMLType) are not allowed; be sure the app vendor certifies their product on this platform.

    the flexibility of NoSQL allow us to modify and upgrade our apps very fast and in a convenient way. Having the solution hosted by IBM is also giving us the chance to focus on features and the improvement of our apps. It's one thing less to be worried about

    It's mostly just a straight forward API to a data store. I knock one off for the full text search thing, but I don't need it much anyways. Also, the dashboard UI they give is pretty nice to use. It provides syntax-highlighting for writing views and queries are easy to test. I wish other DBs had a UI like this.

    it is a highly available solution in the IBM cloud portfolio and hence we have never had any issues with the data base being available - we also do continuous replication to be on the safer side just in case some thing goes awry. We also perform twice a year disaster recovery tests.

    Based on 2 answers
    very easy to get started and is very developer friendly given that it uses couchDB analytics. It is a cloud based solution and hence there is no hardware investment in a server and staging the server to get started and the associated delays/bureaucracy involved to get started. Good documentation is also available.

    online resources are good enough to understand but there is nothing like testing. In our case, we discovered some not documented behavior that we take in count now. Also, the experience in NodeJs is critical. Also, take in count that most of the "good practices" with cloudant are not in online courses but in blogs and pages from independent developers

    • Test the architecture on CouchDB helped us to address initial design flaws.
    • The migration to Cloudant as such was very painless.
    • We have migrate our replication system to Cloudant Android Sync for mobile devices.
    • We have regular informal contact with the Cloudant leadership to discuss our use cases and implementation strategies.

    Alternatives Considered

    IBM Cloudant

    The feature-set, including security, is very comparable. Overall, IBM's services added to the product are mature and stable, although product support and engineers could be a little better. Global availability is improving, and Disaster Recover Capabilities are great. Overall, it's very comparable to MongoDB as a DBaaS offer, available globally and with great documentation.

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    I found Oracle Autonomous Database very secure to store data and private information.I always feel secure with Oracle Autonomous Databases disaster recovery features.It is very effective to build applications for mobile and desktop devices lesser code using a low code development framework namely Oracle Application Express (ApEx).

    Scalability

    IBM Cloudant

    IBM Cloudant 8.6
    Based on 21 answers
    The service scales incredibly well. As you would expect from CloudDB and IBM combination. The only reason I wouldn't score it a 10 is the fact that document trees can get nested and nested very quickly if you are attempting to do very complex datasets. Which makes your code that much more complex to deal. Its very possible we could find a solution to this problem with better database planning to begin with, but one of the reasons we chose a service over a self-hosted solution was so we could set it up quick and forget about it. So we weren't going to dedicate a team to architecture optimization.

    Return on Investment

    IBM Cloudant

    • IBM Cloudant is very secure and we never have to worry about losing data/unauthorized access
    • It is one of the best data backup system and works well
    • Global availability means it is easy to connect to the nearest data center and this reduces load time which is great.
    Paul Daniels | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    • Oracle Autonomous Database has a wide range of warehouses, which is competent and of high performance.
    • The transactional processing power that Oracle Autonomous Database outlines are completely important and digital.
    • The efficiency of Oracle Autonomous Database data encryption fosters security measures, a form that demands more threat detectors.
