I have used MaxAPEX for over ten years now and found them to be both practical and extremely reliable. Equally impressive is their competent and timely response to my occasional questions and service tickets.
As an APEX developer, having full control of an entire Oracle XE instance gives me lots of options and because it is professionally supported by MaxAPEX I never have to worry about Oracle upgrades or new versions. I also appreciate the fact that it is physically located in a data center with fast Internet access both in and out. This is something a small company like mine cannot easily do on our own.
Thanks, MaxAPEX, for providing this valuable service at a cost I can afford.
