Oracle Autonomous Database

Oracle Autonomous Database is good when you need the database to tune itself, create resource plans and gives indexing recommendations. Storage management is also important aspect that Oracle Autonomous Database is providing. We used to have an error messages when one table space is full, or the users are disconnected from the system when the memory is full. I think that this database is appropriate and more features are very welcome.

Redgate SQL Compare

We use SQL Compare to troubleshoot performance problems quite a bit since our data model is more like a template and not everything is 100% in sync and customization occurs between different client databases. We continually get pulled into performance issues and the developers will say Client A is performing different than Client B, why? Using SQL Compare, we usually find that one client was tuned and had indexes altered or added that weren't deployed to all clients or other objects weren't deployed correctly during the release.On the other hand, since our data model practices allow client databases to drift I tried to create a new golden image by trying to compare multiple databases based on the same data model and found it to be a very difficult process to complete using SQL Compare. SQL Compare gave me too much information and doesn't allow enough filtering to eliminate a lot of the noise.

Pros

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.

Redgate SQL Compare

  • Extremely fast!
  • Compares from source control, not just physical databases. No need to keep copies of databases of varying versions laying around.
  • Command line tools integrate easily into automated build processes.
  • Even has plugins for products like Octopus Deploy!

Cons

Oracle Autonomous Database

  • Autonomous DB integration with PeopleSoft. Issues noticed in the application.
  • More flexibility of user access to DB OS.
  • External connections using DB link is not possible .
  • Appears sophisticated as a majority of the controls reside with Oracle in terms of security, patching, maintenance, tuning. Less responsibility to a proficient DBA.

  • So far so good. I have to be honest, it's not a complicated application, and so far hasn't caused me any issues or to question the choices of the developers!

Autonomous is the way of the future and this is one system which is crucial to any system and is also autonomous.It is self-tuning and self-maintaining which are major advantages.

It's a good tool to have, but becomes expensive to buy a user license for each developer.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Autonomous Database

Features provided by Oracle Autonomous Database including automation, high availability, self-securing, self-repairing and automated database tuning are hugely unique and are not supported by products from other vendors. According to the research we have performed so far, it seems that the introduction of machine learning algorithms is a winning factor that will become more and more desirable in the world of enterprise database products.

Redgate SQL Compare

Honestly, I have never been interested in the usable alternatives. I have always been good to use it. The license cost after all has always been sustainable. I never had the idea of \ u200b \ u200bchanging it nor the need to look at other software. Also (always a redgate software) I use the Data Compare which is the "twin brother" for data check.

Return on Investment

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.

Redgate SQL Compare

  • It's reduced errors and bugs associated with deploying new application features and forgetting to apply required database changes (or incorrectly applying them).
  • It's made deploying new features a quicker task, eliminating the often laborious task of synchronizing schemas and data across databases.
  • These sometimes complex queries and operations can easily be performed by any developer and don't require the involvement of a database administrator to perform.
