Google Compute Engine

We use Google Compute Engine in a hybrid and multi-cloud solution. We find that using it for direct ad-hoc use cases meets all of our demands. We have attempted some more complex networking and multi-regional use cases but were not able to achieve satisfactory results. Google Compute Engine is extremely appropriate for anyone requiring quick, scalable, reliable infrastructure.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

We have used oracle cloud-based solutions for 8 years and it has been very good. We had a cyber-attack recently and our files were protected. We are lucky to have security but we need to switch more applications to oracle. We are hoping as we integrate more fictions that they all work together seamlessly.

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.
Tyler Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
David Long, SPA | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a great product. Although, as compared to other cloud services, it lacks a few features, it is a very good product that is easy to use, and it was very easy to train our clients in this product. Therefore the product is highly recommended to use for the clients.

  • 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.

Getting in touch with their service support, their ticketing system process is ridiculous. Just to create a support ticket request takes almost two hours to navigate the create a ticket process. By the time you find something that matches your issue, there's more additional information they ask for, it's almost they don't want to you create a ticket or open one. If the issue was on-premise, it would be faster and easier to reboot the server and forgot creating a service ticket.

Alternatives Considered

Google Compute Engine

I've used the AWS stack, the Azure stack, OCI, and IBM cloud. I have found GCP and AWS the easiest to deploy, configure, manage, and so on. Google has offered me at least 5 free in person classes to train me in new features on the platform. Likewise AWS has offered me probably 10 to 15 guided online tutorials, with a person to field any questions. All of this free training will no doubt affect my experience in a serious way, so keep that in mind as a reader. Outside of ease of use and configuration, I haven't experienced performance problems across any of the cloud services that I have used.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has the most required cloud capabilities, which enable [the] possibility of multiple things like data analytics, network monitoring, and easy for the user to easily transfer many different data on the cloud very securely. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has great activity tracking functions which are easily manipulated by any user.

The Universal Credit model (yearly contract) is well suited for workloads that are static & predictable in nature. But for short-term workloads, it's not at all suitable.

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
Aditya Mohan | TrustRadius Reviewer

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
