"One of the features offered is scalability on demand."
"Amazon AWS has improved a lot on security and is very good. Additionally, You can integrate your own security into their AWS platform."
"The reason I like AWS is that they have a large market share and a large presence. When it comes to our use case, a big positive is that MuleSoft and AWS are working together very well. So instead of competing against each other, they're meshing together."
"It's quite stable and scalable. The price is good as well."
"One of the most valuable features is that Amazon AWS has a lot of data centers and regions where we can position our virtual machines for leverage. Amazon AWS is also easy to use. You can quickly spin up something, use Explorer, building proofs of concept, things like that. Once the proof of concept is built once and we know how things are going to look from a production perspective, we try to move everything to the data centers. These features and the ease of use are the main reasons why we use AWS."
"I like the flexibility of this solution."
"Very good automation and very stable."
"Amazon AWS has good performance and easy management."
"The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful."
"They seem to be more readily integrating with Azure, which is great."
"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."
"A good feature of the solution is the clear roadmap it provides specifically from Oracle to PC, there are good options to use OTP."
"Oracle does well when it comes to data privacy and security, which are critical."
"The security on the solution is very good."
"The pricing of the solution is pretty good."
"Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea."
"Its price should be lower. The price for in-house usage should be different from production usage."
"The solution could always be further improved on the commercial side of things. Amazon Web Services are not cheap. It would be ideal if it was less expensive for the customer."
"The price could be better. Support for data analytics could be better. I don't see much support for data analytics. They have a lot of support in Azure, but I don't see a lot of innovation on the data analytics side in AWS."
"Amazon AWS is a very poor product for students. Microsoft Azure is a better solution."
"Amazon AWS could be improved by lowering the general storage price."
"I don't have complaints. Previously, we asked for more end-to-end workshops, examples, and tutorials and these have been added and improved."
"AWS is very expensive."
"While feasible, custom configuration will be more time consuming than standard."
"In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence."
"Since our Oracle products are on premise we cannot get the premier Oracle products."
"The initial setup can be a bit complex."
"Oracle Cloud Platform can improve the integration with hybrid and cross-cloud deployments. It should be a flexible solution with a very well-defined integration with other applications in the hybrid environment. There are certain integrations that are not straightforward."
"Lacking in additional PaaS services."
"The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated."
"There should be more management automation."
"The portfolio should improve for the Oracle Cloud Platform. Oracle has to increase the services offered. New services should be added to be able to compete better with Amazon AWS which is the best, and the biggest service. Oracle Cloud Platform has a small portfolio, but it's a good one."
Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity more quickly and more cheaply than a client company building an actual physical server farm.
The Oracle Cloud Platform (also known as Platform as a Service or PaaS) provides a shared and elastically scalable platform for consolidation of existing applications and new application development and deployment. The Oracle Cloud Platform delivers cost savings through standardization and higher utilization of the shard platform across multiple applications.
