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

Pros
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.We have seen an improvement in our infrastructure, as the code makes it very easy to deploy quickly to AWS.Their technical support is really good. I am very satisfied.With the pay-as-you-go model, we don't have to predict future IT needs. We can just scale up as we want. That helps with a lot of agility in deploying stuff in our IT infrastructure.They release new solutions almost every quarter and you don't get that kind of innovation from an enterprise company.It offers durability, high availability, fault tolerance, and a high TCO benefit.This solution features ease of use and market adaptability.The cutting-edge design is valuable.

Overall, there are some very good features on Oracle and it offers good customization capabilities.The environment is super fast so you get all the underlying machines behind the data. It's a good processing machine, especially in the Generation Two Cloud.I find the interface to be great.Technical support is good. We are partners with Oracle so we are always speaking with them.In terms of features, upgradeability to the latest version of Oracle suites has been a good feature. All we have to do is just patching or an upgrade, it's pretty easy. Then, it gets regularly updated. That's what I like about it.What I like most about Oracle Cloud Platform is the ease of getting data in and out of the cloud, and the affordable licensing.I like that the program is flexible. I can use it to write Java scripts. I also like the website, because it constantly updates me on things, like artificial intelligence, and the latest technology. I read the articles, on the latest technology that programmers can use.Apart from the licensing, there's support from Oracle Cloud Platform which improved our day to day operations. Time is reduced. Based on this service, we are able to scale up dependent applications as quickly as we can.

Cons
This solution would be improved with the inclusion of hybrid Kubernetes management.An easier way to determine estimated costs quickly would be helpful.There's not much room for improvement but that being said, they can improve the overall process of the overall product features and backend.The AWS documentation is written in a way that is not very intuitive. That's an area they can improve.AWS should provide even more support and engagement to accelerate the adoption of new services and features.The use of this tool should be extended to Google and Apple operating systems.More complete and specific training for many of the technologies, specifically with Python Django and the CMS (Mezzanine).The pricing could be adjusted to provide more advantages versus current on-premise solutions for business applications.

Technical support does not offer the best service and should be improved.The solution requires tighter integration capabilities.Technical support could be more responsive.The main issue for the clients is that they need to understand the credit payments because if it's a currency that's not dollars or euros, Oracle will always convert it into credits and that's not easy for the customer to understand at the beginning.The packaging part of the software needs improvement. It lacks customization abilities for users. Giving them VMs for machine learning or running their own programs like Azure and Amazon, for example. Things like scalability based on the requirement of the tools. Oracle still lacks these kinds of things. For example, if you need a VM from Oracle, you need to pay for a monthly fee. They started developing containership but it's still at the initial stage and it's still lacking. They also need to develop integration between packages.The technical support is really bad, because their reaction time is extremely slow.There's one app I have to install on my device, the Articulate Player app. It's only available on Apple and Android, but it's not available for Windows. I can't run the program on my desktop, to use it to learn Java.With the Oracle Cloud Platform, they have to give first some proper documentation with a step-by-step process. Then the customer is able to use it properly. Nowadays, the Oracle Cloud Platform requires lots of floor work.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It's pay-as-you-go... but I think the pricing becomes a problem as the IT organization grows. They need to give better pricing when companies grow.​AWS is much too expensive compared to current on-premises solution for this type of work.AWS IaaS is a very generic service, which is extremely overpriced.​We are reducing costs year-over-year.Much faster than other solutions at a super low cost.One of the best-kept ways to reduce costs is to develop it on serverless technologies with AWS Lambda, SNS, DynamoDB, and S3.One of the best thing in Amazon AWS is you are billed for the service you use.

It's not that expensive. I think it's maybe half or one-fourth of our actual on-prem cost, especially in Oracle Data Integrator. It's pretty cheap. Maybe around $30,000 or $40,000 per month.Make sure you read the fine print.My ROI has increased.

Overview

Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity more quickly and more cheaply than a client company building an actual physical server farm.

The Oracle Cloud Platform (also known as Platform as a Service or PaaS) provides a shared and elastically scalable platform for consolidation of existing applications and new application development and deployment. The Oracle Cloud Platform delivers cost savings through standardization and higher utilization of the shard platform across multiple applications.
