Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It is easy to deploy applications, and we don't need to bother about software updates on the server. We don't need to bother about machines, servers, and hardware. We only need to care about the system and functionality that we need or want to develop. They take care of everything else. It provides high availability. It is a pretty good solution that provides everything that we need. It has everything that we need to run our applications. We have many different applications, and we generate three million bills for a company in Brazil. We see more than a billion requests per day in another application. Everything works just fine, and it is very good.""It's easy to push a change and to deploy new things.""Thanks to Heroku, we don't need to do as much direct management in AWS."

More Heroku Pros »

"Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea.""Just having the many options and features offered by the product through the cloud is a major benefit.""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.""The security on the solution is very good.""The pricing of the solution is pretty good.""Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases.""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."

Cons
"Heroku doesn't support Docker images on the CI infrastructure.""They could flesh out some of their analytics a little more.""Their support is good, but they can improve their response time."

More Heroku Cons »

"In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence.""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.""The solution requires tighter integration capabilities.""The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated.""The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at.""Lacking in additional PaaS services.""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."

More Oracle Cloud Platform Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""The price is fair, but we have to manage it to keep it low."
