"Or else "

What do you like best?

What I like best about Oracle is that the software is so versatile. You can go almost any direction with this software. What ever type of project you are working on Oracle is there to get the job done with precision. This is what you want a job done with precision.

What do you dislike?

I dislike nothing about Oracle most people I talk with that use it say that is a very workable software. The software is what you would call dummy proof.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend Solaris Zones to others that may be interested in using it for various projects etc.,

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I would have to say that it is helping my company to be very organized with lots of structure to be on top of the chart. Solaris Zones is definitely the zone to be in. I have realized that I would not want to be without it.

"Easy, good for new people"

What do you like best?

I personnaly like the desktop. Also is a good free option if you want to use it as a non-commercial way.

What do you dislike?

If you like to read documentation, there is a lot, probably too much. In the end is easier to use than the documentation looks like.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Solaris with any kind of Oracle DB
