Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Database

Oracle [Database] is used by [a] couple of departments to maintain Animation assets and for couple of applications in the Animation movie making workflow.
  • Oracle's High Availability setup is very durable
  • Performance of the database is very good for large databases
  • DR setup is very reliable and can be setup easily
  • ASM Storage management makes life easy in managing the datafiles
  • Licensing cost is very expensive
  • Sometimes getting an expert in Oracle support might be a challenge
  • Multiple applications can use the same database and still get high performance
  • Licensing cost is still a concern compared to the other options available in the market that are very very inexpensive
  • Almost a maintenance free database
  • Oracle Grid makes life easy in terms of monitoring and managing the databases
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.

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

Not sure

Are you happy with Oracle Database's feature set?

Yes

Did Oracle Database live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Oracle Database go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Oracle Database again?

Yes

I believe Oracle Database is still the best RDBMS database which is the database to consider for OLTP applications and for Adhoc requests. They are good in Datawarehousing in certain aspects but not the best. Oracle is also a great database for scaling up with their Clusterware solution which also makes the database highly available with services moving to the live instance without much trouble.
