Likelihood to Recommend

Google Compute Engine

I have recommended the platform to students, friends and family members alike. The help and documentation is very easy to follow for a beginner. Plus, GCP has built in tools which make some common tasks that non-production level cloud users need to accomplish very easy in an automated way. Now, to address the question of recommending GCE to a colleague, ultimately the organization will have to make a decision regarding the entire cloud platform. It wouldn't make much sense, outside of a special case, to use GCE for some parts of your cloud infrastructure and a competitor on other parts. That practical caveat aside, I believe that the GCP brings a strong suite of tools to the table overall and is good value for money at this time as well. Developer familiarity to certain competing platforms can be a sticking point, but a colleague who is already asking for a recommendation is likely already open minded about moving to GCP.

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think of where it would be less appropriate to use this product would be if you have an Oracle environment that is outdated by quite a few versions, or if you couldn't afford migrating to OCI.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

Google Compute Engine

  • A simple web-based interface that is a breeze to train new engineers to use. Our experienced engineers never have trouble finding or doing anything on GCE.
  • Sustained use and Committed use discounts mean we get top-tier VMs for an incredibly competitive price.
  • Wonderful identity and access management that gives us peace-of-mind when granting access to machines to contractors and other 3rd parties.
  • Fast VMs, lastest in hardware, and enough RAM to power even the hungriest of our services.

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

Google Compute Engine

  • The L7 load balancer can be difficult to get set up. It's limited in its functionality, especially with the container engine.
  • It's hard to find certain objects on the web console. Often times the things I need to get to are buried in advanced menus.
  • Google's decision to only support MySQL on their relational DB service means that I have to manage Postgres instances in Compute on my own, managing everything from storage to backups.

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.

Having interacted with several cloud services, GCE stands out to me as more usable than most. The naming and locating of features is a little more intuitive than most I've interacted with, and hinting is also quite helpful. Getting staff up to speed has proven to be overall less painful than others.

  • The documentation needs to be better for intermediate users - There are first steps that one can easily follow, but after that, the documentation is often spotty or not in a form where one can follow the steps and accomplish the task. Also, the documentation and the product often go out of sync, where the commands from the documentation do not work with the current version of the product.
  • Google support was great and their presence on site was very helpful in dealing with various issues.

Alternatives Considered

Google Compute Engine

App Engine is somewhat similar, but we use it together with Compute Engine. App Engine is good for serving end requests to users -- it can scale automatically to any number of requests, but has it's own limitations. Compute Engine does not have any limitations. but you have to manage it by yourself and scale it manually as needed. I tried using Amazon's EC2 before the Compute Engine was released, but at that time their UI wasn't friendly, in the end Compute Engine provider much better integration with App Engine since their VMs can be really close to each other to reduce network delay. Google Cloud's UI is really good, you don't always want to manage your stuff using API.

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.

Return on Investment

Google Compute Engine

  • Positive impact on the OpEx with reduction in CapEx resulting from reducing the time to move a workload from on-prem to the cloud
  • Incased RoI by reducing need for on-prem compute
  • Improved agility by providing the option to take on new AI workloads for test and dev without the need for upfront investment in

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • 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
