Overall Satisfaction with Berkely Database

It is used as a data management solution across the backend of our company. We have used it to address issues that we were having with the scalability of our previous management solution. Berkely offers several features that made it a standout product in our eyes, such as its recoverable ACID transactions and multiple isolation levels.
  • Very scalable solution for larger companies
  • Offers Btree, Queue, Recno, and Hash data indexes
  • Implementation was difficult
  • Customer service not always best
We've noticed that Berkely Database performs well regardless of database size. Our company has undergone large transitions in its size over the years, but Berkely has proven capable of dealing with our database size no matter how big or small we happen to be in any given year. It's very efficient.
  • Made us more scalable
  • Gave us cleaner data
Seemed better across the board in terms of its features and offerings. However, it is also a bit more pricy than other options that we considered, at least as of a few years ago when we were on our software hunt. We're happy with the product in many ways, even though it is pricy.
Berkely Database is particularly adept in its ability to scale, partition, and segment data sequences in a clear and efficient manner. It also requires little manual administration, and is capable of scaling 256 TB of data into a single file. This has been very helpful for us.
