"Frankly speaking, I've been very impressed with the stability the solution offers. Everything is working very well at the moment, and we haven't had any issues or faced any bugs or glitches.""The product gives you independence from hardware onsite, the setup is easy, and there is no need for hardware maintenance.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the Interface.""The pricing isn't too bad.""The most valuable feature is that it offers several adaptors.""The autonomous database functions are an excellent feature.""Overall, I would say that Oracle Cloud provides support with zero down time and the high probability is very good.""What I like best about Oracle Cloud is that it is an all-in-one system for everything."

More Oracle Cloud Pros →

"I would like to see faster data migration and some support for other languages in the next release.""The solution could improve by providing an improved SDK tool and automatic indexing for databases.""The only thing that I won't do on Firebase is the hosting side of things for a progressive web app because it feels like you actually still need to download the app first before you can actually get into the functionality of the app.""The solution needs to offer capabilities to work offline. Like Firestore, we should be able to do insertion, updating, and deletion offline."

More Google Firebase Cons →

"The solution could always be less expensive.""They offer some basic services but the choice is not as rich as other cloud providers.""The configuration through the cloud is complicated. It's not straightforward.""They could add more features.""The integration tools that they offer are quite complex to use.""The solution should integrate better with other tools and different vendors.""This service is very specific to Oracle and we cannot have other types of workloads on Oracle Cloud.""In the next release, I would like to see more automation."
