Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We are able to operate client’s platform without downtime during security patch management each month and provide a good SLA (as scalability for applications is processed during heavy client website load, automatically).""The most valuable feature is the high availability for the applications.""Provides support throughout the whole platform.""The solution provides a lot of flexibility to the application team for running their applications in the container platform, without needing to monitor the entire infrastructure all the time. It automatically scales and automatically self-heals. There is also a mechanism to alert the team in case it is over-committing or overutilizing the application."

"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.""The security on the solution is very good.""The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful."

Cons
"Not a ten because it's not a standard solution and the endpoint protection user has to prepare with documentation or have training from other people. It's not easy to start because it's not like other solutions.""The solution only offers support for one server.""Documentation and technical support could be improved. The product is good, but when we raise a case with support—say we are having an image issue—the support is not really up to the mark. It is difficult to get support... When we raise a case, their support people will hesitate to get on a call or a screen-sharing session. That is a major drawback when it comes to OpenShift."

"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.""The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options.""The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I don't deal with the cost part, but I know that the cost is very high when compared to other products. They charge for CPU and memory, but we don't worry about it."

More OpenShift 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.""The price is fair, but we have to manage it to keep it low."
