Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall

Any serious small or large business that is utilizing a mainstream database, purchase ordering system, and web platform should look into this software - especially if you're using softwares compliant with this protector. It really does do an outstanding job of addressing all weaknesses through auditing and vaulting the potential virus concerns.

Azure SQL Database

The most important positive for our organization is the ability to scale up or down at will. As a startup, we needed to quickly adapt to changing space and performance needs. It's also integral as we grow different branches of the business. Thus far, we haven't encountered much of anything with the tool that hasn't been a good fit for our business.

Azure SQL Database

  • 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 Audit Vault and Database Firewall

  • Ability to drive lower than metadata levels
  • Cost issues with coverage to multiple targets
greg van stekelenburg | 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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall

Whilst Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall Systems were more costly than the closest alternative, there was more ample community support, 3rd party support, more capable functionality for our complex infrastructures, and additional features for audit.
Chris Metropulos | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Azure SQL Database

  • Azure SQL Databases are a great solution and with the Azure pricing model, you can reduce costs in most scenarios. They also have added intrinsic value by the products nature of being scale-able to the current task (i.e.- a short term need for more processing power).
