It is easy to learn and very straightforward.""Google Cloud has low downtime.""It's robust, and it has a wide reach in terms of office applications including storage.""The solution can scale as well.""I like it because it's convenient. Google Cloud is also stable and scalable. The technical support is good as well."

"The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful.""A good feature of the solution is the clear roadmap it provides specifically from Oracle to PC, there are good options to use OTP.""The initial setup was easy. It takes just a few minutes to create a virtual machine.""The pricing of the solution is pretty good.""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 most valuable features of the Oracle Cloud Platform are good visualization and analytics. The solution is very well integrated with predictive analytics and forecasting. These features go beyond the traditional reports and visualization.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases.""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."

More Oracle Cloud Platform Pros →

"The product could always be a little bit less expensive.""Google Cloud lacks some tools for database migration. I've only used MySQL and AWS in my career, so those are the only ones I can compare. AWS has a database migration tool that you can integrate with a cloud backup, so can take that backup and restore it in the AWS public cloud, but it's not the same with Google Cloud.""The storage available for this solution could be improved, especially compared to a solution like Microsoft which offers 1 TB of storage. Google cloud offers only 30 GB.""I feel that the Google product is incomplete with regard to internal communications. It is an area that needs some improvement.""They need to improve the costing for predictive analytics, which is mainly related to the tools that come with AI. They also need to improve the BigQuery cost optimization and the visualization.""Another issue is the applicability of local language data capturing mechanisms, which are more advanced on cloud service providers, but still there is room to grow. Also, their hybrid version isn't available in all markets worldwide, so I'm hoping that it will be released globally soon""Workload management could be better. Their pricing could also be more flexible.""The Spanish version is in beta. It needs to be farther along."

"The monitoring tool and the migration from on-premise to the cloud should be much easier.""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.""The initial setup can be a bit complex.""The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated.""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.""In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The best part of Google Cloud is that it is cheaper than the competitors."
  • "The licensing cost is based on the capacity we use."
  • "It's not really an expensive solution, but it would be better if there were more flexibility in the pricing model."
  • "I am not familiar with the pricing, but I would guess that it is probably cheaper than Microsoft Suite"
  • "It has a monthly subscription. The customers pay based on the usage."
  • "Pricing is high compared to other solutions."
  • "Licensing fees are paid monthly."
  • "Google Cloud should be divided into modules so that users can buy which module will satisfy them. The overall price of Google Cloud should be reduced, Microsoft is a little bit cheaper. However, if Google divided the cloud offering it would be better. For example, if someone wants to use only for OneDrive they should be able to purchase the service separately, it would reduce the price. There is a license required to use this solution for enterprises. There is a free account, which the users can increase the size of the space. Google cloud is used in most Android Mobile device operating systems."

  • "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."
  • "The best aspect of the Oracle Cloud Platform is the relation between the performance and the price. When you compare the price with Amazon AWS, Microsft Azure, or any other, the price for performance is the best."
  • "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."
