More Amazon Lightsail Pros »

"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.""Just having the many options and features offered by the product through the cloud is a major benefit."

Cons
"I don't see this solution as enterprise-ready, for bigger companies like banks."

"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.""The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The services that it provides are good for the price."

More Amazon Lightsail Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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.""On a monthly basis, we pay around $2,500 for licensing fees, with no additional costs. We do pay extra licensing for other on-premises solutions, but these are not related to Oracle Cloud Platform."
