Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We found the solution to be reliable.""In general, the cost management in Amazon is complicated. It's not too straightforward.""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.""The most important feature is deploying our production in multi-data regions around the world.""I like that it helps us do everything really fast, and its advanced services.""AWS has many integrations and plenty of tools available for anyone to take advantage of. There are new features being added all the time.""The capacity to grow dynamically based on our needs is most valuable. We can increase resources dynamically. It is also very reliable and fast to implement.""The ease of use is the biggest benefit."

"The security on the solution is very good.""Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea.""The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful.""They seem to be more readily integrating with Azure, which is great.""Oracle does well when it comes to data privacy and security, which are critical.""Oracle is valuable for improving performance and addressing issues between the nodes of clusters for private IPs. It provides a private connection between the client and the security cluster.""The pricing of the solution is pretty good.""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."

Cons
"Its subscription model or pricing model is too complex, which should be improved.""If you have not had previous training or studied guides it will be a little difficult to use the solution. However, the difficulty also depends on what you are using the solution for. They can improve by providing more documentation, such as tutorials and videos.""We like everything about the solution except for the general price.""The problem with AWS is you have to keep up with the technology. If you don't stay up to date with the technology and its latest changes then you won't know what to use in your infrastructure.""Some services that are not used often have poor quality and need to be improved.""Price can always be cheaper.""The networking is overly complex.""Its price should be lower. The price for in-house usage should be different from production usage."

"The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated.""The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options.""In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence.""The initial setup can be a bit complex.""Lacking in additional PaaS services.""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.""I think that there could be a more user-friendly environment when it comes to the options that Oracle presents through the Oracle Cloud Platform.""The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at."

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.
