We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I like it because it's convenient. Google Cloud is also stable and scalable. The technical support is good as well."
"I like the simple features that allow me to share documents with others."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"The most useful feature of Google Cloud is that it's basically completely managed or fully managed. There is no administration or maintenance needed from the user, and it's very simple to use."
"This platform is popular with technical users because of the abilities for customization and fine-tuning performance."
"You can just connect and start using it through a browser within a few minutes."
"Good storage and ease of access."
"It's robust, and it has a wide reach in terms of office applications including storage."
"Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs."
"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 simple infrastructure of the service is very useful."
"The pricing of the solution is pretty good."
"Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases."
"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."
"Could provide more services."
"If there were more documentation and training, it would be very helpful in explaining the underlying processes."
"The management side for the database needs some work. Currently, you do everything from the APP. It would be nice to have an interface where you can go in and maintain data and deal with records and do something online."
"I would improve the integration with other devices such as smartphones. It is integrated in our company, but I think it could be improved."
"The ease-of-use could be improved for less technical users."
"The privacy could be improved so that it is more secure."
"It could have a reporting tool included."
"Workload management could be better. Their pricing could also be more flexible."
"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."
"Technical support does not offer the best service and should be improved."
"Lacking in additional PaaS services."
"The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at."
"The solution requires tighter integration capabilities."
"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."
"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."
"The best part of Google Cloud is that it is cheaper than the competitors."
"I am not familiar with the pricing, but I would guess that it is probably cheaper than Microsoft Suite"
"It's not really an expensive solution, but it would be better if there were more flexibility in the pricing model."
"Google cloud is less expensive than other comparable solutions."
"The licensing cost is based on the capacity we use."
"It has a monthly subscription. The customers pay based on the usage."
"The licensing for Google Cloud seems to be quite cheap and they're actually quite reasonable in comparison to Azure, which, as it turns out, is quite expensive. Even though Azure has a data center in South Africa it's still quite costly. There's no scaling, so if you go with the VM, you pay 2500 Rand. When you add another VM, it's another 2500 Rand even though you don't use the whole thing. With Google, you can go up as incrementally as you need to, even if it's just 30 Rand."
"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."
"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."
Build scalable apps. Use Google's global, reliable infrastructure. Securely manage enterprise data. Get insights from data faster. Whatever you're solving for, Google Cloud can help.
