Pros and Cons

  • 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.
  • Performance - this is true of a lot of databases as you grow. As you get bigger, the performance of the database takes a hit.

  • Autonomous DB integration with PeopleSoft. Issues noticed in the application.
  • More flexibility of user access to DB OS.

Oracle Exadata Database/Autonomous DB Review

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Simple data retrieval using standard SQL
  • Capable of supporting many simultaneous users/connections
  • Fast loading of data in batch processing
  • Improved connection abandonment detection would be useful. I occasionally encounter situations where a query becomes unresponsive due to deadlock, volume of data being queried, or other. It would be beneficial if there were better support for client-side cancellation events.

Autonomous Oracle databases

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Availability.
  • Scalability.
  • Autonomous.
  • Good transactional and data warehouse processing database.
  • It's easy to implement.
  • TDE integrations: today TDE set up needs a lot of environmental setup, and with different configurations, like cdb, pdb, data guard, and golden gate. The product should integrate the TDE by default into the product, and also the Golden Gate is a separate install which also should be integrated, and people will decide based on the use.
