Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Database

A lot of our applications are using Oracle Database as their data store.


  • High stability and reliability
  • A complete set of database features


  • Performance is sub-optimal when data size is large.
  • Non-trivial effort to setup. We have to build some automation so developers can save some time to set it up on their local machines.
  • It powers most of our critical consumer applications.
  • However, we are gradually retiring it for some large applications and starting to use some NoSQL options.
It depends on the use case. Oracle database is for everyone, but if it's a lightweight application, MySQL might be an easier choice.

Do you think Oracle Database delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Oracle Database's feature set?


Did Oracle Database live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Oracle Database go as expected?


Would you buy Oracle Database again?


Oracle Database should be a good fit for any applications who need a database, especially eCommerce use cases. There might be better choices for lightweight applications or applications with very large data sets.
