Microsoft Azure

This is just a fantastic platform for dipping your toes into new technologies or running parallel testing of tings like ETL’s and BI Tools. Storage is so cheap and you can switch things on and off at will to save costs. Even if you are a 1-server company just managing email and file storage, going virtual is simply the best option. We still have a few on-prem servers and old Oracle items that we are swiftly moving to eliminate because the cloud is just that much easier and cost effective.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is great for running applications that do not have the performance requirements of a dedicated bare-metal server. It works really well for graphics-intensive workloads, but also for high performance demanding AI and machine learning algorithms. Moreover, you can manage complex organization structures and rules easily with logical groups and policies.

Pros

Microsoft Azure

  • Perhaps the biggest advantage of Microsoft Azure is its ease of integration with other Microsoft products. If you're used to using Excel, Access, SQL Server, and other Microsoft products, Azure will fit in nicely.
  • Azure does a good job at pointing the user into user-friendly methods for data capture and analysis. In fact, I think Azure does the best job at this compared to competing tools.
  • Microsoft Azure has recently made strides in implementing advanced analytics, such as machine learning. Their advances are great and integrate nicely with the tool.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

  • Reduction in cost as no scalability is required from an IT infrastructure side.
  • Pre-configured, engineered and simple in nature. This helps in reducing complexity on the IT side.
  • Less number of workers needed. Helps in effectively reducing man power and using comp.

Cons

Microsoft Azure

  • Sometimes its a bit overwhelming as to the volume of functions
  • The layout could be more intuitive
  • While there are a lot of support docs it could be laid out a bit better to help you get where you need to go
Kyle Kochtan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

  • Visual network designer would assistant in ensuring configuration matches intended design.
  • Automatic and seemless migration of VMs from OCI Classic to OCI would show that Oracle is taking cloud infrastructure service seriously.
  • Better, faster support. Traditional methods of filing SRs date back to the 1980s. Online realitime chat with support that know what they're doing is critical.
  • One click template image load from Oracle Cloud Marketplace is basic omission. It's available for oci-c but not oci.

Moving to Azure was and still is an organizational strategy and not simply changing vendors. Our product roadmap revolved around Azure as we are in the business of humanitarian relief and Azure and Microsoft play an important part in quickly and efficiently serving all of the world. Migration and investment in Azure should be considered as an overall strategy of an organization and communicated companywide.

Fairly easy to manage with a lot of small exceptions. Interface blades can seem to branch out many levels deep making changes and available settings difficult to find. There are seemingly endless and obscure gotchas and undocumented limitations and pitfalls that can only be realized after the fact.

Microsoft products are well-known for 24x7 global coverage of customer support. They also sometimes come with a multiple support plan, which caters to different business requirements and needs. However, more support will also mean more cost to bare. Other than that, limited options in technical training sometimes make it quite challenging in finding the right talents for managing Microsoft Azure clouds and more dependency in Microsoft technical support.

As I have mentioned before the issue with my Oracle Mismatch Version issues that have put a delay on moving one of my platforms will justify my 7 rating.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Azure

Google Cloud has a selection of products that are specific to machine-learning, but they are better for more specific use-cases like Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, and other APIs. For our company, we were looking for APIs and cloud products that had a bit more flexibility in their interface, which is something that Azure offered for more of their products.
Fedor Paretsky | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

Oracle Cloud is more cost efficient when compared to AWS, Google cloud, and Microsoft Azure. However, the enterprise user support is not up to the mark as compared to the others. Also, out of box features available are minimal and bare-bones.

Return on Investment

Microsoft Azure

  • This solution has allowed reduction of hardware costs. Virtualization is by far much less expensive than onsite platforms.
  • Buying and configuring systems is costly in terms of initial investment and specialized staff. Azure minimizes those costs.
  • Azure has created a positive impact on our business objectives in the sense that it has allowed system integrations to become available in a quicker time frame than typically expected.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

  • We have an internal chargeback for infrastructure and we anticipate the cost factor will be neutral.
  • We have been impressed with the provisioning aspect of OCI and expect it to save on data center staff.
  • The scalability of OCI has been a timesaver for our environments.
