Microsoft
You may easily deploy your apps to Azure App Service if they were written in Visual Studio IDE (typically.NET applications). With a few clicks of the mouse, you may already deploy your application to a remote server using the Visual Studio IDE. As a result of the portal's bulk and complexity, I propose Heroku for less-experienced developers.

Oracle
Oracle Java Cloud is especially appropriate for moderate to complex Java applications. Due to BYOL licensing, it is also works well when you are planning to do dev and test in-house and then deploy it on Oracle Java Cloud. It is not well suited for simple Java applications due to the cost of Oracle Java Cloud. Simple applications don't need the fully managed aspect of Oracle Java Cloud.

  • Pricing can certainly be improved as the cost adds up for dev/test environments using the Oracle Java Cloud platform.
  • It is hard to customize Oracle Java Cloud for complex Java applications requiring high bandwidth memory and network requirements.

We had an issue where we deployed too large of a resource and didn't notice until the bill came through. They were very understanding and saw we weren't utilizing the resources so they issued a generous refund in about 4 hours. Very fast, friendly, and understanding support reps from my experience.

Azure has many data center, their services are more reliable. Azure has way more features than both Linode and DigitalOcean. If someone wants a complete reliable service, he/she must go to Azure instead of Linode and DigitalOcean because even though azure charges more, it is worth the money you pay there.

Google App Engine is great for Java applications where you are using other Google components already, for example Google GCP, Google BigQuery, etc. Redhat, OpenShift, and Pivotal CloudFounder are great when the application is very complex and includes components that are Java and non-Java based (Python, etc). Amazon AWS is more difficult to configure than Oracle Java Cloud - Oracle Java Cloud has simpler UI.
