Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The initial setup is simple, and OpenShift is open-source, so it's easy to install on any cloud platform.""The stability has been good.""The scalability of OpenShift combined with Kubernetes is good. At least from the software standpoint, it becomes quite easy to handle the scalability through configuration. You need to constantly monitor the underlying infrastructure and ensure that it has adequate provisioning. If you have enough infrastructure, then managing the scalability is quite easy which is done through configuration.""The most valuable feature of OpenShift is the containers.""The solution provides a lot of flexibility to the application team for running their applications in the container platform, without needing to monitor the entire infrastructure all the time. It automatically scales and automatically self-heals. There is also a mechanism to alert the team in case it is over-committing or overutilizing the application.""The company had a product called device financing, where the company worked as a partner with Google. It allowed customers to take mobile phones on loan or via credit. When we migrated those services to OpenShift in February last year, we were able to sell over 100,000 devices in a single day, which was very good.""Provides support throughout the whole platform.""Its interface is good. The other part is the seamless integration with the stack that I have. Because my stack is mostly of Red Hat, which is running on top of VMware virtualization, I have had no issues with integrating both of these and trying to install them. We had a seamless integration with the other non-Red Hat products as well."

"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 feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases.""The technical support is good, they have been responsive and helpful.""Oracle Cloud Platform is a good solution because with large data platforms the data migration can be a challenge and this is the reason to move and migrate towards the cloud from on-premises.""Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs.""They seem to be more readily integrating with Azure, which is great.""The security on the solution is very good.""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."

Cons
"We experienced issues around desktop security, that stopped us implementing a new feature that had been developed.""OpenShift could be improved if it were more accessible for smaller budgets.""We need some kind of a multi-cluster management solution from the Red Hat site.""The whole area around the hybrid cloud could be improved. I would like to deploy a Red Hat OpenShift cluster on-premise and on the cloud, then have Red Hat do the entire hybrid cloud management.""The solution only offers support for one server.""One of the features that I've observed in Tanzu Mission Control is that I can manage multiple Kubernetes environments. For instance, one of my lines of business is using OpenShift OKD; another one wants to use Google Anthos, and somebody else wants to use VMware Tanzu. If I have to manage all these, Tanzu Mission Control is giving me the opportunity to completely manage all of my Kubernetes clusters, whereas, with OpenShift, I can only manage a particular area. I can't manage other Kubernetes clusters. I would like to have the option to manage all Kubernetes clusters with OpenShift.""OpenShift's storage management could be better.""OpenShift could improve by providing the ability to integrate with public cloud platforms. This way we can easily use the services that these platforms offer. For instance, Amazon AWS. However, all the three major hyper-scalers solutions offer excellent DevOps and CI/CD tooling. If there was an easy way to integrate with them it would be beneficial. We need a way to easily integrate with the monitoring and dashboard services that they provide."

"Oracle Cloud Platform can improve the integration with hybrid and cross-cloud deployments. It should be a flexible solution with a very well-defined integration with other applications in the hybrid environment. There are certain integrations that are not straightforward.""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 monitoring tool and the migration from on-premise to the cloud should be much easier.""There should be more management automation.""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.""Since our Oracle products are on premise we cannot get the premier Oracle products.""The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options.""Amazon AWS has a better solution overall."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I don't deal with the cost part, but I know that the cost is very high when compared to other products. They charge for CPU and memory, but we don't worry about it."
  • "We had a Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) license for all our servers' operating systems. By having multiple Red Hat products together, you can negotiate costs and leverage on having a sort of enterprise license agreement to reduce the overall outlay or TCO."
  • "Pricing of OpenShift depends on the number of nodes and who is hosting it."
  • "Depending on the extent of the product use, licenses are available for a range of time periods, and are renewable at the end of the period."
  • "We are currently using the open version, OKD. We plan to get the enterprise version in the future."
  • More OpenShift Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "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."
