Armor

Armor gives you what you need to be successful regardless of technical ability. If you can maintain the systems yourself, you are definitely ahead of the game with their service. If you're not prepared to configure and maintain the systems, they do a pretty good job of getting it set up during the onboarding process so that you don't need to dig into the technical guts too much. If you find yourself in over your head, their support staff can handle it for you in most cases.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a fantastic product for most Oracle environments. As far as I know, it supports almost all of the Oracle environments. The only scenarios I could think of where it would be less appropriate to use this product would be if you have an Oracle environment that is outdated by quite a few versions, or if you couldn't afford migrating to OCI.

Pros

Armor

  • Security - we have requirements met right out of the box and the implementation of new resources is done with security in mind.
  • Speed - We can scale resources easy and the infrastructure is fast and efficient.
  • Responsiveness - Support tickets are handled very fast with almost immediate solutions.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • Block Volume provides durability and stability to data. IOPS can be changed on the fly. Always stay true to the promised performance.
  • Block Volume can be encrypted with ease to meet compliance. Can also be easily integrated with OCI vault service for extra security.
  • Object Storage and File Storage are other forms of storage that are secure and extremely easy to configure. FSS is one of the best in the industry when it comes to reliability and performance.
  • SSD block volumes are persistent in OCI unlike many other clouds.

Cons

Armor

  • Authentication and access against the secure messaging portal is overkill when the response I'm logging in to see merely says, "yes, we have your message. An agent will respond shortly". There should be an option to receive updates like this through email.
  • The online portal that allows us to clone servers is very slow to respond. More than once I've spun up an additional server due to the lack of visual feedback on the initial request.
  • The web application firewall does not seem to be sophisticated enough to differentiate between logged in administrators and end users. We use a CMS system which allows admins to create scripts. These often get barred by the WAF even though they are not malicious.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) is a fully managed service that makes it a little hard sometimes to fine tune HPC workloads, for example AI/Deep learning training where a lot of data transfer and compute is needed.
  • The initial setup can certainly be improved with less steps to make it faster and easier to deploy compared to the competition, for example Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).
  • Documentation and best practice documentation for OKE can be improved especially since there are not a lot of customer references available for large scale deployments that need fine tuned performance.

Approximately 50% of all messages we receive are automated. Either that an agent will be assigned, has been assigned, or a ticket is closed. I'd like to see more 'real' interaction, and less box ticking, though I appreciate process has to be followed. That's the one point off. Everything else is very good.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

The main thing we discussed while we Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is [that] we can use/integrate other Oracle products like Oracle Infrastructure storage [and] Infrastructure networking. To be simple, it support[s] all Oracle services, which make the process more reliable in the production environment. Oracle also stacks up against other as it has lesser billing rate as compared with other vendor.

  • We have been able to test at low scale complex solutions using OCI
  • The Free Tier option can be used to test easy of configuration and deployment
  • Since pricing is in U.S. Dollars, it can be a problem in countries with less stable currencies
