  • The AWS forums are well monitored and very helpful - go there first if you get stuck and you'll get long, detailed answers from AWS representatives who will follow the conversation and come back for follow-up questions.
  • AWS is tight-lipped about roadmaps until your bill reaches a certain size (for us, 2 years ago, it was at about $50K/mo that we started getting access to the people who really knew what was going on.)

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

We don't feel confident enough in OCI to put our production environment in there yet. It may be well suited however we need to do our due diligence. Also as a government agency we need to ensure that our data is never located outside of the US at any time. We do feel it will be well suited for our PUM, Demo, Dev, Test and staging environments in the cloud. Our strategy is to get our staff working on more high value tasks and offload the mundane things on the OCI environment. We may even outsource our server patching. The additional items that come in the cloud purchase make it particularly appealing. These items include data masking, goldengate and the backup and recovery services.

Cons

  • Standardize service availability across all regions. Not all services are available everywhere.
  • Service limits can be difficult to manage
  • Isolating teams within a shared account is almost impossible due to inconsistent security policies/features.

  • a little bit behind with versions of software, but they usually make upgrades once in a trimester

Easy to use/learning curve. If you are new to the use of cloud storage, AWS is your entry point. If you have experience in that field, AWS is the way to go.

Performance

AWS does not provide the raw performance that you can get by building your own custom infrastructure. However, it is often the case that the benefits of specialized, high-performance hardware do not necessarily outweigh the significant extra cost and risk. Performance as perceived by the user is very different from raw throughput.
