"I think the AWS interface is good. It's easy to understand and use."
"The monitoring is the most valuable aspect of the product."
"User friendly solution."
"Friendly console for implementation."
"Its scalability is powerful. We are providing services for people to schedule an appointment for the vaccine and for COVID testing to see whether they are positive or negative. In one night, we can have 240,000 people in one minute to schedule an appointment. I am very happy with the scalability."
"I think Amazon AWS is easy to use, and it's a good service. I also like Amazon EKS because it's good."
"Scalability is one of the biggest benefits we have."
"You can build and release applications quickly with AWS instead of waiting for months to get the necessary hardware. That's the real benefit. The time-to-market for developing applications is much shorter."
"The features allow you to connect the service solutions with the client's requirements. It is user-friendly, easy to navigate and provides assistance."
"We are not using any features offered by OCI but only using virtual machines. So our data only syncs from our On-premises to cloud. The compute and performance are better than other cloud solutions."
"The most valuable part of the Oracle Cloud Platform is the ability to develop applications that help us migrate information from on-prem to the cloud."
"The initial setup was easy. It takes just a few minutes to create a virtual machine."
"We appreciate the fact that this solution will operate with both native and third-party applications. This has meant that we don't need to change all of our systems to accommodate it within our network."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"A good feature of the solution is the clear roadmap it provides specifically from Oracle to PC, there are good options to use OTP."
"Our recommendations are good, and we also have a bidding platform that is helpful for managed service providers. This platform can save customers up to 2-3 weeks in billing time, from 25 days to 3-4 days. We have two products: a basic product and a cloud optimization product. Both products help customers improve the performance and cost-efficiency of their cloud environments."
"The invoicing procedure of Amazon AWS needs to be improved. It can be difficult to manage."
"Like anything, Amazon AWS has room for improvement, but it's not bad."
"In terms of improvement, they should try to give more emphasis to the VoIP system."
"There's a huge cost for support."
"While AWS often is at the top of my list to recommend to people, I always have to tell them, "Hey, you got to be careful because if they don't like you, they can shut you down in a heartbeat. And they can kill an entire company by doing that.""
"I'd like the solution to be more plug-and-play."
"IAM must be made simple and straightforward."
"The availability could be better."
"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."
"The pricing model of Oracle Cloud Platform is an area of concern. Oracle Cloud Platform should be made available at a cheap price."
"The product features related to the manufacturing domain must be improved."
"The monitoring tool and the migration from on-premise to the cloud should be much easier."
"It should have other workloads from other suppliers running on the solution."
"The solution's scalability is an area with shortcomings...Mid-level customers feel that Oracle is not scalable in their environment and is an enterprise-level segment solution."
"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."
"There should be more management automation."
