Well, 3500 free hours is a lot of time to waste if you find out that it´s not the best solution for your Company, that´s why I would suggest to study the characteristics that offers each solution to implement in relation to the needs of the project and organisation.

In my humble opinion both solutions are great, at the moment the 2 strongest providers are Microsoft and AWS, but in order to be able to choose between Microsoft and Oracle we need to know more about the nature of the project. We would need more details such as the scale of the project, the lifespan, budget....
I would compare also the Infrastructure Security Design, Developer Tools each solutions offers, elasticity, scalability...., etc. before taking a decision.

Conclusion: there is not a bad solution it all depends of your needs (There is no black or white)
