Cons
"From a performance point of view, Huawei and Azure are faster. Alibaba isn't as good.""From the improvement point of view, there are lots of issues that we are facing. In all the areas, it seems like it is not mature. For example, a customer wants to provision some VM that has many configurations. If I want to show the price to the customer, it is very challenging. The SDK that Alibaba has provided is very limited. We can have the pricing for VM, but we cannot have pricing for RDS databases or some other services. This is a big concern area for us. They should put more effort into the SDKs or APIs that they provide, for example, pricing APIs or pricing SDK. They do not provide support for most of the services they provide. For example, if I want to get the price of MongoDB, that SDK is not available from Alibaba. Similarly, robust API support is required for S3, which is OSS or Object Storage, so that we can read the data in a faster manner, for example, in chunks. We have raised many issues with the Alibaba support team, and they have been fixing the issues after we report them."

More Alibaba Cloud Cons »

"With Oracle you have to create your own roles and it is more complex.""Portability of the VMware environment into the Oracle Cloud should be made more simple.""Simplifying the cloud management console would be really valuable for small and large customers alike.""The solution should integrate better with other tools and different vendors.""This service is very specific to Oracle and we cannot have other types of workloads on Oracle Cloud.""The integration tools that they offer are quite complex to use.""They offer some basic services but the choice is not as rich as other cloud providers.""The price of the subscription is too high and excludes some potential customers."
