Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

Db2 is not a solution that I recommend. We have a lot of experience and we are not satisfied with the product or the support that we received. Because of the way our environment works, serving branches, it becomes a challenge to satisfy the customers or users.

Oracle Autonomous Database

This is very well suited if you have a good amount of data in your database and this will help you to scale and tune that which ultimately can reduce your work effort. The implementation part is a bit tedious as compared to other platforms. Also, there is good support for transactional data loads.

Pros

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • You can size dashDB to your current needs and expand its capability later on as the needed.
  • I like the way dashDB allow for connecting to the cloud that my network engineer to set things up quickly.
  • IBM dashDB's ability to store and provide fast access to data both on-premise and in the cloud makes it a real winner for me.

Cons

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • We have been facing some challenges with Db2 when scaling up the operations in terms of availability. It becomes a single point of failure and it pollutes the whole system, leaving us challenges in serving the traffic. This is the reason that we are considering migrating to Oracle.
  • Scalability has been a problem area. We have traffic on the order of gigabytes per second and it impacts our queries and responses a lot. Considering the volume that we have, it manifests itself into a multitude of issues.
  • We have dealt with technical support on several occasions. Whenever we run into issues, the specialist team is involved and the resolution cycle is stretched. We have to rely on make-shift solutions and the issues keep recurring. Ultimately, the product itself has challenges and we are not currently satisfied with the support, either.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

IBM dashDB stacks up well against both on-premise (SQL Server and DB2), but it was a tough choice to go with over AzureDB. Ultimately, the deep discount by IBM led us to go with dashDB with the understanding that we could back out of the technology at a later date.

Oracle Autonomous Database

Oracle Autonomous Database provides self administration features that are not available in previous databases like Oracle Database 12c and previous versions. So this is really good for the organizations to best use the resources and improve the performance of the applications. In addition, we don't have to think more about the versioning because this database will be take care of this.

Return on Investment

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • We have dealt with technical support on several occasions. Whenever we run into issues, the specialist team is involved and the resolution cycle is stretched. We have to rely on makeshift solutions and the issues keep recurring. Ultimately, the product itself has challenges and we are not currently satisfied with the support, either.
  • Scalability has been a problem area. We have traffic on the order of gigabytes and it impacts our queries and responses a lot. Considering the volume that we have, it manifests itself into a multitude of issues.

Oracle Autonomous Database

  • Oracle Autonomous Database, and the safe harbor statements, are good, and when it comes to availability Oracle should control the number of bugs we hit every year, and they need to test all those bugs and the impacts before they release. They may be doing it today, but still, they need to invest their money into it. Even TDE is new and needs to improve a lot. The troubleshooting with TDE and skill level in Oracle needs to improve.
