We are a reseller partner. In general, I would rate the solution at a seven out of ten. We're mostly happy with the solution, however, there are aspects that can be improved upon. I would recommend this product to companies who are really familiar with the earlier version of Oracle databases.

At this time we are not using any products for hyper-converged infrastructure. We do have some computers for hyper-converged, however, those products are not moving very much. We have moved our mission-critical workloads onto the cloud or we are using them on-premises for a traditional approach. We have plans to use continue using this solution in the future. I would this product to others who are interested in using it. I would rate Oracle Cloud an eight out of ten.

I would recommend Oracle Cloud to anyone who is interested in using it, but there are some limitations. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I would recommend this product, definitely. In a way, I am already working on that with potential customers by recommending its use for them. Most of the features that I have used in the product are good and I am happy with it. Oracle is good in terms of how they do things. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate Oracle Cloud as an eight-out-of-ten.

Oracle Cloud is definitely a product that I recommend, especially for existing Oracle customers. If you have an Oracle database then you should definitely look into it. Similarly, if you have an Oracle SaaS application then you should definitely consider using this platform because there are a lot of integration points. I would suggest familiarizing yourself with the terminology that is used. This can be done by reviewing the content available on the Oracle website, learning the concepts and terminology that they use. This is important because some of it is slightly different from AWS and Azure, so it is good to have knowledge about topics such as fault domain, tenancy, and compartments. There are certain things that are unique to Oracle and it would be a good thing to do a basic course, which is available on the website, to help speed up your learning curve. I think that over the years, Oracle has come a long way and they have improved a lot. They are doing a lot of things the right way. That said, they do not have a breadth of services. More can be offered in terms of analytics, AI, IoT, and blockchain. Although I would expect more services to come in the future, AWS and Azure currently have the edge in this regard. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is implementing Oracle Cloud is to take it one step at a time. It is a good product and one that I recommend. Our implementation experience hasn't been great, but I think that the system is fine. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is to consult with Oracle before implementing it. The architecture and the features need to be considered for suitability because it is not a fit for everyone. They have to go through a process of evaluating these things in advance. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

We're partners with Oracle. I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. It's quite average, but effective. The infrastructure and formalizing of a custom platform need a bit of work. Other solutions are better. Apache is also excellent.

Oracle Cloud is a good solution, and better than its competitors, especially for enterprise-level clients. The SaaS application can be really customized using the PaaS with the Oracle Application Express model. The beauty of this is that you can put all of that into a single domain. You don't have to keep it separate. This is a real advantage and the kind of service that only Oracle can offer. Because it is a generation two data center, everything can be done on a single domain which means that users do not have to pass through multiple domains or multiple hosts. It is a seamless interface for all of the applications. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Someone considering this product as a solution has to examine their needs. If Oracle Cloud probably meets their use case, then it is a good choice. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Oracle Cloud overall as an eight-out-of-ten. They have a good product but there is really some room for improvement while they are still developing the solution into something more mature.

I believe the developers are busy improving the solution. It's like they don't have as many features as other providers, so it takes time and they are doing their best. If you are just moving the ERP, you can use the Oracle application, but if you need more open source applications, it is better to go with the Amazon or Azure, because they have more services compared to Oracle, like an autonomous database. I have worked on Amazon and Oracle and my advice is to test it for two weeks or so and look at the price on the sales market before you make a purchase. I rate this solution an eight out of ten.
