    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.

    For a CSP it's the best choice. For internal uses, even in presence of different business units, it's not so easy and flexible to manage. It assures a high level of multitenancy, often not needed for internal purposes. But it could be used in this case, just not created for these purposes. Network management is great.

    Pros

    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.

    • The advantage to using vCloud Director is it a cloud based application allowing access anywhere. I have the ability to make changes to our virtual environment without being in the office or using a vpn.
    • The vCloud Director provides a lot of the same features as vSphere.

    Cons

    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.

    • It is not good for end users or customers to use. The UI is geared more towards VMware admins.
    • There is somewhat of a learning curve to it, you have to think through and plan out how you want to set your OVDC and PVDCs up. It takes a lot of architecture experience.
    • Once you built workloads in vCloud director, it's real difficult to take them out or manage them directly in vSphere. This is a huge pain.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Hyper-V is built on a Windows platform that includes services not needed for the virtual environment adding overhead. With vCloud I'm not required to maintain a host OS or it's updates. The requirement to maintain storage devices is no longer needed with vCloud as well.

    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

    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

    VMware Cloud Director

    • Time to market = 0 means profits almost immediate after investment
    • Customers trust the VMware brand more than any other
    • Elasticity: allowing the company to choose the best HW in the lower layer
