Researched Oracle Cloud Platform but chose Amazon AWS: Feature-rich, stable, and it is easy to expand our service offering
Researched Amazon AWS but chose Oracle Cloud Platform: Very robust, with competitive pricing, but needs better integration capabilities
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."
"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."
"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."
"What I like most about Oracle Cloud Platform is the ease of getting data in and out of the cloud, and the affordable licensing."
"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."
"Technical support is good. We are partners with Oracle so we are always speaking with them."
"I find the interface to be great."
"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."
"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 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."
"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."
"The technical support is really bad, because their reaction time is extremely slow."
"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 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."
"Technical support could be more responsive."
"Technical support does not offer the best service and should be improved."
"The solution requires tighter integration capabilities."
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."
"AWS is not an expensive product."
"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."
"There is a subscription cost rather than licensing for this product."

Also Known As
|EC2, Amazon Web Services, AWS|
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.
