    Pros
    I am very happy with the software, in fact, I am making an living as an oracle DBA, once you know the product, it is a super good database product.
    For me this is the best Database, because it is safe, reliable and very nice organized. It handles tremendous amounts of data without problems.
    If you know SQL, then you can use Oracle Database. Easy interface, easy of use and a great variety of resources makes this tool excellent to develop and maintain your own database.
    Cons
    It is really unusual to allow a bad programmer to use a sequence for several tables. Beyond that that would be a bad development practice the biggest mistake is that the tool invites you to commit it.
    This comment is about personal preference: it is sometimes difficult to switch between Oracle and MS-SQL, which is a problem as we run software that uses both.
    But sometimes it will keep having you put information in at every startup of your computer at that part can be annoying.

    Why use Oracle Database

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    My experience with Oracle has been as administrator and developer which gives me an overview of the projects and has allowed me, thanks to the tools it provides, to achieve projects that with other database managers could not have been successfully completed, that is, the multiple tools provided by oracle are very helpful although the examples and the documentation seem scarce

    Pros

    It is a very powerful database from the point of view of storage and development, I have used oracle in many aspects, as a database engine and for a large amount of data it is perfect because it handles high volume data efficiently, as well It provides the advantage of being able to develop with SQL ansi standard procedures and tasks that automate the management of data, the advantage of being able to run on any platform and with any development tool allows development projects to be carried out in the expected time, compatibility It is your biggest advantage

    Cons

    As a disadvantage I think that the way to handle the downloads of the connection drivers for the different platforms is a bit tedious since other databases do not require so much protocol to download the drivers. it may be necessary in some cases to document about the new functionalities because the examples provided by the provider are not so clear and / or non-existent

    Trending database technique with high level data protection,availability,scalability and cloud

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    I had great experience working on different versions of oracle databases and the technologies like Goldengate,RAC,ASM,OEM,RMAN,DATAPUMP. I highly recommend my friends to learn oracle db administration as it is very useful if chosen as a career.

    Pros

    Being a oracle database administrator I like to manage and work on unique technologies that are available, like Real application cluster,Golden gate,RMAN, Datapump and its is really challenging at times when we receive performance related issues. It provides high level security on data where we can recover lost data or corrupt data using various technologies like RMAN,DATAPUMP,DATAGUARD,RAC. ASM makes the database maintenance even more simple while adding new disks into storage or adding datafiles. Goldengate can be used to configure data replication between different vender databases and OEM 12C and above can be used to monitor other vendor databases and OS alerts too.The Cloud enviornment makes it look cooler.

    Cons

    I don't find any cons as such as but the ORACLE-SUPPORT response is slow sometimes even on high priority issues and we need to raise a call to the manager

    A database to use if you have always used it and cannot fathom doing things differently

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    I got a working database for my application from this software, but there could be so much more for that price using modern concepts.

    Pros

    Oracle Database aligns with the topics you learned in your Intro to Databases class. It has tables, columns, keys, indexes, triggers, and all the things you want to avoid in your modern applications.

    Cons

    It is big, resource-intensive, expensive, hard to maintain, hard to patch, unreliable, impossible to distribute without an equally cumbersome and expensive add-on, and it keeps your applications mired in the past.

    Oracle Database

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    If you want to build data warehouse than it is top notch solution for your company. Very stable and too efficient to manage large data. Nice support of documentation available.

    Pros

    Due to its excellent disaster recovery and data security feature it is the best solution for big companies and organizations. It has one of the best framework for performance tuning of data and architect. Very good support of SQL and PLSQL. Regular bug fix available form the ORACLE.

    Cons

    It is memory hungry software so on native machine it is nearly impossible to test anything. To run it on the Cloud, the cost is very high.

    Oracle for Non-Profits

    Reviewed 7 months ago
    Pros

    Lightweight, pretty easy to use. TNS files make it easy to make sure everyone has the same connections. No real issues.

    Cons

    Having to use a third party software like TOAD or SQL Developer to access it can be a pain and annoying at times. As well with having a Linux-based backend it can be difficult to find the right DBA.
