"The initial setup was easy. It takes just a few minutes to create a virtual machine.""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.""Oracle Cloud Platform has good scalability.""Oracle does well when it comes to data privacy and security, which are critical.""The features allow you to connect the service solutions with the client's requirements. It is user-friendly, easy to navigate and provides assistance.""I am impressed with the tool's upscaling and resiliency features.""The product enables users to create their own reports.""We appreciate the fact that this solution will operate with both native and third-party applications.

More Oracle Cloud Platform Pros →

"I think there's still a lot that can be done with Google Meet and the video conferencing part of it. It could be more dynamic in terms of what can be done with it.""I would like a simpler deployment tool on laptops. It is a bit complicated at the moment. We know how to do it, but it could be easier to deploy it on laptops.""The documentation and community are lacking for this product.""Some features of runtime don't work well in App Engine."

More Google App Engine Cons →

"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.""Sometimes when we install something, we need to partition and maybe rebuild the index. This can cause some issues for performance. In the future, I would like to see more stability and fewer bugs.""The product roadmap strategy for some of the products is not clear.""The pricing model of Oracle Cloud Platform is an area of concern. Oracle Cloud Platform should be made available at a cheap price.""It should have other workloads from other suppliers running on the solution.""Some of the features of this solution, such as the digital assistant, require extensive configuration before they are suitable for use. We would like these to be made more straightforward and to require less manual input.""The customization and the requests put through were not flexible enough.""The monitoring tool and the migration from on-premise to the cloud should be much easier."

  • "If we don't know how to work with the tool, we might have some spikes in price."
  • More Google App Engine Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing is reasonable."
  • "It's less expensive to operate your environment in the cloud than in-house. It's a bundle cost. Everything is included in one price."
  • "Oracle Cloud Platform has a decent pricing model."
  • "The licenses for this solution are very comprehensive and, therefore, very economical; there is only one cost, and it covers all available features without any chargeable add-ons."
  • "Oracle offers universal credit and pay-as-you-go options."
  • "Oracle Cloud Platform is a bit costly. You can always bring your own license or subscribe to the SaaS option, but the SaaS option is very costly. I rate the pricing a six out of ten."
