The price of the solution should be reduced to a price that people can afford.

In terms of pricing, as far as I've heard from my colleagues and the management, it is an acceptable price. However, they would still be interested in a cheaper solution.

The cost of the subscription is high and may exclude many customers, especially in my country.

The subscription is a pay-as-you-go model, with fees that are dependent on usage. The monthly fee will vary based on how much compute, storage, and networking you use.

The pricing is a little bit expensive compared to other products. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

Costing depends on if you have an existing license for the application and for the operating system. You can bring your own license and use regular licenses. So they have options. I think Amazon is cheaper than Oracle, though.

Hi community, I work as a Solution Architect on PeopleSoft but my company has deployed me to create a PoC for two customers who are migrating on-premise facilities to the Cloud.  So, I'm looking to understand the high-level differences between the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Amazon AWS in terms of costs and features. One university customer is migrating Ellucian Banner 8.5 ERP to t...

There are many points for comparison between AWS and OCI that greatly affect cost and features: network egress (AWS recently reduced cost to compete with OCI), compute cost (OCI has flexible shapes while AWS uses fixed EC2 capacities), security (OCI compartments has no easy equivalent in AWS), HA within Availability domain (OCI has fault domains, AWS has no equivalent), VMWare capability (vendor managed only in AWS, customer managed in OCI) to name a few.  In general, AWS has many features for building new apps on latest dev platforms (e.g. its developer oriented) while OCI may not have as many dev features (i.e. they are always catching up) but is geared more for production, enterprise apps (e.g. considerations for security, scalability and fault tolerance have been there from the start). But since you are considering packaged Enterprise apps such as Ellucian Banner ERP and Peoplesoft, in general OCI has more to offer than AWS (which is more for developers for new, custom apps). There are docs to deploy Ellucian Banner ERP in OCI (there's a reference architecture) while Peoplesoft, being an Oracle product, has either a full-blown SaaS solution aside from a reference architecture for infra on OCI - these you cannot easily find in AWS. Also, I presume these apps are using an Oracle database backend and there are many benefits to moving an Oracle db to OCI (DB cloud service, autonomous DB, scalability using RAC on fault domains, BYOL credits twice CPUs vs divide by 2 for AWS, varied Data Guard possibilities).

i concur with Rafael, AWS is more for apps to be built and is more popular; for Oracle Apps and Enterprise applications my money is on OCI; also evaluate lift and shift services from both options; this will give you better understanding to move forward.

The three main types of cloud computing are SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. Software as a Service, or cloud application services, uses the internet to deliver software applications to its users via a third-party vendor. Most SaaS applications run directly through your browser, which means you don’t need to download or install anything. You can purchase a basic, easy to set up solution right out of the b...
