Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"They seem to be more readily integrating with Azure, which is great.""The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases.""The pricing of the solution is pretty good.""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.""The security on the solution is very 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.""Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs."

Cons
"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 solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options.""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.""The initial setup can be a bit complex.""Lacking in additional PaaS services.""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."

"It is not straightforward to setup.""In the next release, I would like to see easy integration with external tools.""The user interface should be simpler to navigate because it t can take time for users to learn it."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
