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.

I just cannot be very objective. I received the request from management to perform an in-depth research on Oracle Cloud migration feasibility. Long hours of investigation and I concluded that yes, that's a superior product, not only for its IaaS but the Data management, automation and monitoring tools. Oracle recovered its place in the field with a very competitive product. I just got fascinated with it.

Pros

  • 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.

  • Scalability: During peak hours, you do not need to add additional servers, load balancers, etc., manually. Oracle does everything for you.
  • Cost : It's amazing option of pay what you use really helped us.
  • Interoperability: As we migrated from On-Premise, its interoperability helped reduce the time for go live.

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
  • This may be kind of obvious, but Oracle Cloud Infrastructure favours Oracle's own database products and there is limited opportunity to use, say, SQL Server as a serverless/managed database product. Thus if you use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure but want a non-Oracle DB you may need to run it on your own VM or migrate to something else
  • Other hyperscalers, such as GCP, have a greater focus/emphasis on AI and models, and this is something Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is not yet as well-established in
  • Other hyperscalers, such as Azure, have greater unification around its data/BI products and tools than Oracle Cloud Infrastructure currently has

The services & products in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure needs more improvement to beat other Cloud service providers. The price is good & Security processes are good. We are requiring to put more effort in supporting this Oracle Cloud Infrastructure than other Cloud service providers. Probably better ways are there but is not super easy to find or not super available

It's super easy to get started and deploy new stuff. The infrastructure is solid, so I can focus on building rather than worrying about tech issues. Plus, the customization options are endless—from picking the right computing resources to choosing storage and networking that fits our needs, saving us a lot of money.

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.

Overall it is amazing, there is always room for improvement. We have weekly updates that tend to slow the program used more and more. We had to change some reports within Oracle because the others wouldn’t load. This is tied to our payroll and the delays are causing many time constraint issues and panic. We have to create a new report when one breaks. Otherwise awesome!

We used Microsoft Azure and Docker earlier and faced some difficulties like Microsoft Azure and Docker. Occasionally, the generation of large images can delay deployment. It is also necessary for me to admit that Microsoft Azure and Docker have a somewhat steep learning curve. Proper paperwork needs to be there. Docker has issues with performance on a number of platforms. On the other hand, OCI is easy to deploy and easy to understand.

was not part of initial purchase team. Anyways, i think unit pricing and billing frequency is good compared to other Cloud service providers, when it comes to Cloud Capital expenditure & Operational expenditure. Would be more interested in exploring more options where customers can get more cost relaxations on trying out new cloud services in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for example a new App or a feature

Services & Infra wise is ok to use & host applications & services. Security wise also good for a Cloud service provider. It is a interesting area to explore & using it for day to day needs can be further improvised in future probably. Modern day Services like AI and Machine learning could be improved

  • We have migrated approximately 75 apps successfully over to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in the past year.
  • By migrating these apps, we were able to reduce our on-prem hardware needs by 50% for a specific business unit.
  • Minimizing our on-prem hardware needs has allowed us to continue our migration to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
