We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is 100% stable. It is also scalable."
"It's definitely good for unstructured data. In earlier days, we had Centera, so for the DR it's really good. It has load balancing facility, and we're using it with the Kemp Load Balancer."
"This product is very competitive."
"The stability is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"I like that the solution is easy to scale and that's its stable."
"What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor."
"It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward."
"Just having the many options and features offered by the product through the cloud is a major benefit."
"Overall, there are some very good features on Oracle and it offers good customization capabilities."
"The security on the solution is very good."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases."
"Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea."
"They seem to be more readily integrating with Azure, which is great."
"The pricing of the solution is pretty good."
"I like having the ability to easily run Oracle Linux server instances and to deploy Oracle Middleware and WebLogic servers. Oracle's Infrastructure as a Service products are also very useful, and we're using those right now within Oracle OCI."
"In Taiwan, they don't have professional technical support."
"The disaster recovery could be improved because there should be something in-built within the ECS. Search and recovery should be in-built. Right now, we have to use some external tools for performing the recovery itself. For example, we're using Atempo or deploying Golden Superna, so it has dependency on the external third party vendors."
"Its security can be improved."
"The solution needs to provide better integration between this solution and all other kinds of systems."
"You should be able to calculate so that when it's full it's 100% full, not just 90%."
"Technical support needs to be improved."
"The solution could be more cost-effective and secure."
"The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options."
"The solution requires tighter integration capabilities."
"I work with many clouds and I would say, in comparison, others have a better presentation of services and they have clearer steps in terms of implementation."
"The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at."
"I think that there could be a more user-friendly environment when it comes to the options that Oracle presents through the Oracle Cloud Platform."
"In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence."
"The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated."
"The initial setup can be a bit complex."
"The solution could be cheaper."
"Dell EMC ECS is too expensive."
"It's a lease-based model, so it's capacity-based. We already negotiated the price a lot, but we're still doing that with Dell because somehow the product was not installed successfully, so there was a lot of struggle in the distributor territory between Dell and the environment itself. I would give the solution a 6 out of 10 for the pricing. There's a little room for improvement."
"We are not paying for the license at this stage."
"There is a subscription cost rather than licensing for this product."
"The price is fair, but we have to manage it to keep it low."
"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."
Dell EMC Elactic Cloud Storage (ECS) provides a complete software-defined object storage platform designed for today's cloud-scale storage requirements. ECS provides the simplicity and low cost benefits of the public cloud without the risk, compliance, and data sovereignty concerns. ECS benefits include:
