I am DBA and regular User of Oracle as part of my job as a Software Engineer. I cannot think of better product to delegate the persistence layer of my applications.

Performance is a key in DBMS and Oracle offers great number of performance tuning options.
One excellent feature is the ability to add hints to the query execution (i.e. parallel hint for make great advantage of any available cpu cores)

Cons

It can be quite difficult to understand the permission scheme compared to other DBMS.
License is quite expensive.

Sports a great feature set, but at a pricing that is difficult to justify

Reviewed on 03/12/2021

Pros

Oracle Database supports almost every SQL atom - unlike other databases, which only support a subset of them. It can also meet data sovereignty needs, a necessary feature which is lacking in some other Cloud providers.

Cons

Scaling relational databases is more difficult compared to other solutions. It's pricing is also rather expensive.

I am oracle database administrator and i have a great experience with oracle. I highly recommend to use oracle as a career it is also very attractive.

Pros

Oracle is the giant in the database. It is the most powerful database. Almost overall financial industry is using oracle as their database. The most likely feature of oracle is the security. Their security is very tough and encryption is very protective and undecryptable.

Cons

Oracle’s all features are remarkable but the least remarkable is oracle performance tuning feature in enterprise manager.
