We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"Their technical support is really good. I am very satisfied.""We have seen an improvement in our infrastructure, as the code makes it very easy to deploy quickly to AWS.""As a service vendor, we have helped clients to achieve faster "go to market" on their products, and have provided highly flexible cost-effective system management solutions.""The solution offers a low footprint. We don't have to come up with a data center ourselves. We basically don't have to own any hardware. We just rent a slice of their platform and we have everything we need.""The most valuable features are load balancers, databases, and S3 buckets.""The most valuable feature is that it is simple.""There are a lot of features that I really like including ease of deployment, ease of build and release, and also that it is heavily focused on a PaaS or SaaS model.""The experience with Amazon AWS is error-free. That was also, of course, something that I really appreciate. That means it's really well-tested and, as published or as declared."

"The solution offers many features and it is a complete replica of our data center.""The autonomous database functions are an excellent feature.""This is a highly available and scalable solution that can host both modern and legacy on-premises applications.""Frankly speaking, I've been very impressed with the stability the solution offers. Everything is working very well at the moment, and we haven't had any issues or faced any bugs or glitches.""The most valuable feature is the monitoring.""What I like best about Oracle Cloud is that it is an all-in-one system for everything.""The strength of this product is that they have many good database options, compared to other vendors.""The product gives you independence from hardware onsite, the setup is easy, and there is no need for hardware maintenance."

"There's not much room for improvement but that being said, they can improve the overall process of the overall product features and backend.""An easier way to determine estimated costs quickly would be helpful.""This solution would be improved with the inclusion of hybrid Kubernetes management.""They should really consolidate and make things simpler rather than offer you hundreds of random options. The way everything is arranged really forces users to figure out everything on their own and then, on top of that, to calculate the total costs. There's an infinite number of combinations even just with cost calculations. It's just too much.""There are some limitations for certain applications that happen regionally and it is an issue for us.""They can launch the Oracle service in Azure, and we expect that this should be possible in Amazon AWS as well.""One of the problems that I have seen is that some of the products are not as mature as others.""I'm just bugged by the charges that I'm not really able to manage."

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's my understanding that our company is charged a few hundred dollars on a monthly basis.""I find that Amazon AWS is expensive.""The Oracle licensing is higher than it is with Amazon AWS.""I think they've done a pretty good job with their pricing.""Its price is kind of okay. When we do a migration from on-premises to the cloud, we typically use the lift-and-shift model. Based on the studies that we have done, cost savings are definitely there when we moved from on-premises to the cloud.""The price could be lower.""There are many variables involved in pricing service in AWS and overall the pricing is a bit on the higher side."

"Costing depends on if you have an existing license for the application and for the operating system.""The cost may be a bit high for many potential users.""The pricing is a little bit expensive compared to other products.""Improvements can be made with respect to flexibility in the licensing model.""The subscription is a pay-as-you-go model, with fees that are dependent on usage.""The subscription cost is too high.""We pay the subscription cost."
