What is most valuable?

The strength of this product is that they have many good database options, compared to other vendors. In particular, they provide various Oracle database options, which is a unique offering. They offer multiple versions of their own… more »

What needs improvement?

The global coverage in terms of the number of regions that are supported is very limited. They should really consider improving the availability of this product in more locations. This would help customers to better serve their own clients… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The subscription is a pay-as-you-go model, with fees that are dependent on usage. The monthly fee will vary based on how much compute, storage, and networking you use.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I am currently using Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, and Oracle Cloud. For specific workloads, we might use AWS, but when it comes to database-intensive workloads then Oracle definitely has an edge.

What other advice do I have?

Oracle Cloud is definitely a product that I recommend, especially for existing Oracle customers. If you have an Oracle database then you should definitely look into it. Similarly, if you have an Oracle SaaS application then you should… more »

What is most valuable?

The best features are the independence from hardware onsite, the ease of setup, and the lack of need for maintenance.

What needs improvement?

So far, I do not have ant problems with the product. But I think that Oracle — especially for people in Africa — can look at the issues with subscriptions. They could make it so that people are able to have a better experience in trying out… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost of the subscription is high and may exclude many customers, especially in my country.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product, definitely. In a way, I am already working on that with potential customers by recommending its use for them. Most of the features that I have used in the product are good and I am happy with it. Oracle is… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I only use Oracle, but recently, I was looking at the vendor Salesforce. I was looking at their website and I think their concept and approach are quite interesting. It may be applicable for some of our clients.

What is most valuable?

The solution offers many features and it is a complete replica of our data center. The one thing that is very high level is that it covers multiple regions to host our application. You don't have to… more »

What needs improvement?

I would like to have identity access management. If someone is accessing any application, I should know about it. I think Oracle does have that feature, but with Amazon all the roles are privileged… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Costing depends on if you have an existing license for the application and for the operating system. You can bring your own license and use regular licenses. So they have options. I think Amazon is… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked on Amazon and Oracle, both cloud providers.

What other advice do I have?

I believe the developers are busy improving the solution. It's like they don't have as many features as other providers, so it takes time and they are doing their best. If you are just moving the ERP… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We tried the Amazon but there were some compatibility issues. The operating system versions didn't comply and that is why we chose Oracle. The cloud is getting more mature every day, advancing quickly… more »

What is most valuable?

I think the price was actually very good for us although it is not exactly a feature. The autonomous database functions are an excellent feature.

How has it helped my organization?

It provides us with our first opportunity to use a cloud solution.

What needs improvement?

Even though the price was not bad for our purposes, I think Oracle should open up their software service more to customers by bringing the pricing down for the product. The cost may be a bit high for many potential users. One feature I also… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had not used a different cloud solution for our infrastructure prior to Oracle. This was our first experience with this type of product.

What other advice do I have?

Someone considering this product as a solution has to examine their needs. If Oracle Cloud probably meets their use case, then it is a good choice. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Oracle… more »

What is most valuable?

Oracle Cloud provides the latest infrastructure with good performance. This solution is a Generation two data center, which is not offered by any other cloud provider. This is a highly available and scalable solution that can host both modern and legacy on-premises applications.

What needs improvement?

One of the problems with this solution is that the person who procures it for the organization becomes a primary owner of the cloud infrastructure, despite not being a technical person. It is the IT people who will be doing the actual work, and Oracle is not able to map it. This is an operational hassle for customers and it has to be cleaned up. Simple provisioning is fine, but when it comes to… more »

What other advice do I have?

Oracle Cloud is a good solution, and better than its competitors, especially for enterprise-level clients. The SaaS application can be really customized using the PaaS with the Oracle Application Express model. The beauty of this is that you can put all of that into a single domain. You don't have to keep it separate. This is a real advantage and the kind of service that only Oracle can offer… more »

What is most valuable?

What I like best about Oracle Cloud is that it is an all-in-one system for everything.

What needs improvement?

Improvements can be made with respect to flexibility in the licensing model. The deployment should be simpler to do. The integration tools that they offer are quite complex to use. It would be nice if integration with the SAS tools were a bit easier for end-users. There is no user-friendly interface to navigate for this. If you look at a competing product like Salesforce, it's quite easy to write… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing Oracle Cloud is to take it one step at a time. It is a good product and one that I recommend. Our implementation experience hasn't been great, but I think that the system is fine. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the monitoring. The cloud tools that Oracle provides are useful.

What needs improvement?

The networking is in need of improvement. The price of this solution can definitely be improved. This service is very specific to Oracle and we cannot have other types of workloads on Oracle Cloud. We need to have a multi-cloud solution because for Oracle products we use Oracle Cloud, but for other… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is a little bit expensive compared to other products. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is to consult with Oracle before implementing it. The architecture and the features need to be considered for suitability because it is not a fit for everyone. They have to go through a process of evaluating these things in advance. I would rate… more »

What is most valuable?

From a platform perspective, the most valuable aspect is the ATI management. The powerhouse management is very good.

What needs improvement?

The interface should be more user-friendly. Compared to other cloud environments, it's not as good. It should be implemented better from Passport. It should have a better link to the cloud to communicate more effectively. The solution should integrate better with other tools and different vendors. I don't know of any additional features that I would like to see added to the solution.

What other advice do I have?

We're partners with Oracle. I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. It's quite average, but effective. The infrastructure and formalizing of a custom platform need a bit of work. Other solutions are better. Apache is also excellent.
