I love its ability to work without manual configuration. ClusterControl has enabled us to control all servers across business and monitor overall server health with ease. ClusterControl ability to automate repetitive tasks has made my work easier and saves me a lot of time. It also offers a very good GUI.

Workbench Enterprise is consistent across devices and users so far. It works the same, and access is easy. I have a problem with its security. If you use an enterprise password to access databases, it's very easy to click the show password on the connection page and expose the enterprise password. You shouldn't allow users to use the same accounts to access the database because that means all users are sharing the same password.

Our team does the support for us. Sometimes we see download related issues that can easily be fixed by our team. Most issues you will see with one user in your org will probably happen to others, so keep a log and track those issues. Then have a fix for them somewhere that everyone has access to. This will save you a lot of time troubleshooting.
