Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

We use SQL Server for other modules of our MLFF Tolling System, so I work on a daily basic with both database engines. Oracle is recognized and distinguished by scalability and performance, ensuring a secure environment to host our critical data that comes from multiple roadside sites and from partner agencies, guaranteeing the availability and stability of stored data.

In my opinion, Oracle Database is highly reliable, has better performance with large databases and little to no maintenance once everything is setup. Also, recovery of the Oracle database is much simpler and easier.

Microsoft SQL is just as stable and almost as sellable with a much lower cost of ownership (staff and licensing). But as our primary application doesn't support Microsoft SQL we had to license Oracle.

Oracle12c database is Oracle's flagship product and has been there for a long time. Over the years - Oracle Improved a lot both design and feature wise. Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, Oracle Database Appliance, Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle backup appliance, and Oracle Big data Appliance are Oracle's product. Oracle12c Database has been designed to work best on this product. These products are becoming popular day by day.

Oracle Database is among the easiest to integrate with, program against, have a reliable cluster with DR, and has the most understood and well-documented databases. It suits really well if the software shop is primarily Java-based, and deals with large volumes of data with a high degree of diversity among the applications by purpose and use. Paid support is recommended as well as planned periodic patching and upgrades.

Oracle Database has a better reputation in quality of the database compared to Amazon Aurora, SAP, Microsoft and IBM DB2. There are also better developer ecosystems available that can be used for issues and hiring DBAs and developers with the experience on Oracle Database. Pricing wise, Oracle Database can be a little expensive if sales rep don't provide the discounts, but that is fine. This made Oracle Database the top choice.

Performance is much better than other RDBMS. Oracle supports better transaction management. It has wide range of features and we don't need to use different types of databases to finish an application requirement.

Most are complements to enhance the benefits of the Oracle database. I selected and evaluated Oracle databases because it is the most used suite in the organization and it is important for me to mention strengths and points to improve.

Oracle is more of an enterprise-level database than Access and SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise isn't getting developed much (some people wonder how close it is to end of life) but SQL Server is miles ahead of Oracle IMO in terms of user experience and comparable in terms of performance AFAIK. As stated, a vendor forced our hand to use Oracle so we did not have a choice. If you are looking for help with an issue you are having, there are lots of SQL Server articles, etc. on the web and the community of SQL Server developers and DBA's is very strong and supportive. Oracle's help on the web is much more limited and often has an attitude that goes with it of superiority and lacking in compassion, IMO. For instance, check out the Ask Tom Oracle blog - a world of difference. If you choose Oracle, go into it with eyes wide open.

We use IBM DB2 in AS400 to handle part of our accounting system and our legacy ERP. We are migrating all functionalities to Oracle Database 12c because it is more secure and stable. We have some applications using SQL Server but we want to handle those systems in it because at this moment, transitioning would mean investing a lot of money into it.

We selected Oracle simply because we already use a lot of Oracle products (Solaris, Weblogic, Java), and the licensing for Oracle was considerably less than Sybase at the time.

However, over time we realized that Oracle was far more work than Sybase, far more complicated, required a great deal of training and was overall a much greater headache to keep healthy. Our Sybase instance almost never goes down, while Oracle needs constant monitoring. We also use SQL Server a lot, and have learned that it is also far more stable, and far easier to use than Oracle. To be honest, I have a difficult time understanding why Oracle has the market share it does.

Both have good functionality. Oracle Database runs better on the Oracle engineered systems and provides a better cost model on those servers. Has better security and a more enterprise ready solution.

Oracle provides better support compared to both DynamoDB and Redshift. It is definitely a way matured product and handles the scale preferably. However, DynamoDB's replication is very impressive and their cost benefits are something oracle should consider and reduce their product costs. Oracle Database has supported various integrations for us, they provide stable JDBC drivers to integrate programmatically as well. I have yet to see these in the other products.

Oracle Database 12c is head and shoulders above SQL Server for what we need it to do, and the performance is much better. Oracle Database has been in place at our company for a while, and it was really a no brainer going to Oracle Database version 12c instead of another software platform.
