Oracle DaaS

Best scenario is digital advertising campaigns where there is a specific data need like purchase based targeting or account based marketing and there is room to generate new consumers. Worst scenario when you have a very specific set of consumers or objective to reach that would benefit from the additional users reached within the modeled portion of the data.

Azure SQL Database

Small application that use their own database are better of on premise, since Azure SQL Database is simply too expensive. Like a factor 10 too expensive. These kinds of applications can grow in number throughout the years, and if they would all implement their own Azure SQL Database, we would simply not be making those applications anymore.If you have a (large) application that is highly integrated with other azure modules, like events, API's queues, functions and apps, then it makes sense to use SQL Database.

Pros

Oracle DaaS

  • Customer Service
  • Transparency
  • Connect ability
Corey Buller | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure SQL Database

  • Scalability is #1: if it used to be an almost no-win endeavour to try to modernize your server or migrate to other hardware, with Azure SQL Database it becomes a press of a button.
  • All the tools simply work after you are on Azure SQL Database.
  • The applications do not need changes in order to start using Azure SQL Database.
  • Hybrid Cloud scenarios will work.
  • Clustering and failover - already there.
  • You can start monitoring the use and extract performance insights in a new way in Azure.

Cons

Oracle DaaS

  • 1:1 matching to modeled ratio. Though modeling is necessary to build scale, some clients require very specific targeting that cannot be fulfilled through a modeled audience segment.
Corey Buller | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure SQL Database

  • A little slow on processing complex or large Views. We use a lot of Views to feed our BI system, and the processing time could see some improvement, IMHO.
  • Additional monitoring components would be nice too, automating some built in performance measurement tools would be a nice feature.
  • Price can always be improved as well. It’s not bad, but room for improvement.

This is best solution as a DBA one could expect from a service provider and as a cloud service, it removes all your hassles.

We give the support a high rating simply because every time we've had issues or questions, representatives were in contact with us quickly. Without fail, our issues/questions were handled in a timely matter. That kind of response is integral when client data integrity and availability is in question. There is also a wealth of documentation for resolving issues on your own.

Better in every way, less modeled and more accurate audience segments

Azure SQL Database

Comparing with Amazon Aurora: Azure SQL DB is 100% compatible with SQL Server and Aurora is compatible with MySQL and PostGreSQL. Because of if, SQL DB suits large enterprises with hundreds of databases better. Comparing with Oracle: the main issue is that Oracle will try to push all other services available in their product offering.

Return on Investment

Oracle DaaS

  • Neutral impact measured due to lack of online to offline measurement
Corey Buller | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure SQL Database

  • As you know, Cloud is an incredibly useful environment for really lowering costs. We purchased the systems that we anticipated we might need in the future decades-long ago, those resources were in vain. There is no waste on the cloud side because the resource is determined according to the need.
  • Backup space costs per GB per unit lower than physical storage costs.
  • You can rent the system that you need dozens of approvals and budgets to have in the normal process, and you can return to the old cost-effective structure immediately when you are done.
  • You can turn off the system you don't need.
  • We use geographic backup, which we could not have without cloud, with very reasonable numbers.
