Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I like that it helps us do everything really fast, and its advanced services.""Amazon AWS is user-friendly and intuitive.""The most valuable feature is the availability, as we work in different availability zones.""Technical support has been great.""Technical support is quite helpful.""Friendly console for implementation.""The features that I have found most valuable are their compute and their Relational Database Service.""It has a dynamic scaling capacity which is very helpful."

"The pricing of the solution is pretty good.""Oracle does well when it comes to data privacy and security, which are critical.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases.""The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful.""Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs.""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.""Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea.""The security on the solution is very good."

Cons
"Amazon AWS could be improved by lowering the general storage price.""They have a low code platform, but it is for intervention.""Its only cons are on the data warehouse side. AWS' data warehouse Redshift is not as good as it should be.""I want to use AWS as a full solution for my website - for domain and website hosting, and everything in between - however, I was not able to find everything together.""I'm just bugged by the charges that I'm not really able to manage.""In terms of additional features we'd like to see, the one thing that comes to mind is better integration with Oracle. We have a lot of Oracle databases, and there is no other option to either migrate to PaaS, stay on-prem, or use Oracle Private Cloud.""Their support can be improved. In some cases, their support is not as proficient as it can be. They should be quicker at getting back.""Amazon tools are for more mature DevOps. The process and the Dev is very good, but it doesn't compare to the ease of using the Google Cloud Platform."

More Amazon AWS Cons →

"The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at.""The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated.""The initial setup can be a bit complex.""I work with many clouds and I would say, in comparison, others have a better presentation of services and they have clearer steps in terms of implementation.""Lacking in additional PaaS services.""In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence.""The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options.""Specific to the Oracle Cloud; while they have been able to showcase inbuilt features for Oracle applications, what doesn't really come across clearly is what happens when you want to host, work with, or integrate with applications outside of the Oracle stack."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's my understanding that our company is charged a few hundred dollars on a monthly basis."
  • "I find that Amazon AWS is expensive."
  • "The Oracle licensing is higher than it is with Amazon AWS."
  • "I think they've done a pretty good job with their pricing."
  • "Its price is kind of okay. When we do a migration from on-premises to the cloud, we typically use the lift-and-shift model. Based on the studies that we have done, cost savings are definitely there when we moved from on-premises to the cloud."
  • "The price could be lower."
  • "There are many variables involved in pricing service in AWS and overall the pricing is a bit on the higher side."
  • "AWS is not an expensive product."

  • "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."

    Overview

    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.
