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).This solution is providing a platform with OOTB features that are difficult to build from scratch.I love to automate everything and OpenShift was been born for that. It takes care of the network layer itself and I don't need to dive into it; I can work on a top level. Our project has numerous services designed to run in Docker containers, and we have run almost all pieces in OpenShift.The virtualization of my APIs means I no longer have to pay VMware large amounts of money to only run in-house solutions.Scaling and uptime of the applications are positives.Valuable features include auto-recreate of pod if pod fails; fast rollback, with one click, to previous version.Key features are WildFly, because it standardizes infrastructure and the git repository and docker. Git is essential for source code and Docker for infrastructure.Security is also an important part of this solution. By default, things are running with limited privileges and securely confined to their own resources. This way, different users and projects can all use the same infrastructure.

I find the interface to be great.Technical support is good. We are partners with Oracle so we are always speaking with them.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.What I like most about Oracle Cloud Platform is the ease of getting data in and out of the cloud, and the affordable licensing.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.Apart from the licensing, there's support from Oracle Cloud Platform which improved our day to day operations. Time is reduced. Based on this service, we are able to scale up dependent applications as quickly as we can.The deployment is most valuable feature.The most important features are the turnkey solutions offered by Oracle. These ease the administration of Oracle Databases.

Cons
If we can have a GUI-based configuration with better flexibility then it will be great.I think that OpenShift has too many commands for running services from the CLI, and the configuration files are a little complicated.There have been some issues with security, in particular, that we had to address. At times they make it “clunky." I am quite confident these parameters will appear in the next releases. They have been reported as bugs and are actually in process.Needs work on volume handling (although this is already better with GlusterFS). Security (SSSD) would also be an improvement.It could use auto-scaling based on criteria such as transaction volume, queue backlog, etc. Currently, it is limited to CPU and memory.Credential not hidden, so people on the same group can view it.It would be great if it supported Bitbucket repositories too.The area for improvement is mostly in support for legacy applications.

Technical support could be more responsive.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.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 technical support is really bad, because their reaction time is extremely slow.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.With the Oracle Cloud Platform, they have to give first some proper documentation with a step-by-step process. Then the customer is able to use it properly. Nowadays, the Oracle Cloud Platform requires lots of floor work.The setup was not simple.​Customer service could be improved.​

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.Make sure you read the fine print.My ROI has increased.
