It is a service that enables us to divide incoming network traffic among numerous resources, including virtual computers. By intelligently routing requests, it guarantees fault tolerance and high availability. Application performance is enhanced, and resource utilization is optimized by load balancing. SSL/TLS termination and public and private load balancing are supported. Using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console or APIs, load balancers are simple to set up and configure.

If you have a lot of customers that all need to have a separate place to work in, without the possibility of getting in each other way, and you want to safe yourself a lot of work. Than I strongly recommend you Cloud director. Ofcourse, only if you have a VMware environment as your working environment. If you just have a small group of customers and you can easily handle the work that's coming from it, then it is overkill to add cloud director to your environment. In a later station, you can always introduce cloud director (so tis never to late if you still want to use it)

It reminds me of older GCP (just to get used to where everything is). Permission for different things always seemed to be more difficult than it really needed to be. Once you got them set up you were good but updating anything or creating new permissions for just about anything took longer than I thought it should. Based on how the buttons were laid out, it was pretty easy to delete all of your DNS records, and backing them up was not as intuitive as I'd like with the UI, but it was easy to do using a script. Read full review The add-on/extension required on the internet browser sometimes are difficult to get working at first. We've experience instances where the add-on/extension latest versions will not work and have to downgrade to an older version. The server console lacks features and tools. For example it would be useful to have a copy and paste tool or a file upload tool. The vCloud Director management site uses Adobe Flash, which makes it impossible to use on a mobile device.

The services & products in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure needs more improvement to beat other Cloud service providers. The price is good & Security processes are good. We are requiring to put more effort in supporting this Oracle Cloud Infrastructure than other Cloud service providers. Probably better ways are there but is not super easy to find or not super available

Performs well at benchmarks runs. Had no customer complaints about performance relating to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. We have not noticed any slow down compared to other cloud systems we have used in the past. The monitoring offered by OCI is what really shines this as a product and this allows us to see the performance and adjust our database & container requirements as needed

Overall it is amazing, there is always room for improvement. We have weekly updates that tend to slow the program used more and more. We had to change some reports within Oracle because the others wouldn’t load. This is tied to our payroll and the delays are causing many time constraint issues and panic. We have to create a new report when one breaks. Otherwise awesome!

We did an proof of concept between Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Amazon Web Service and
. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure was the clear winner with us because of support of the product. The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure support staff was very knowledgeable and helpful getting us up and running with a bit of time investment. This pushed Oracle Cloud Infrastructure out ahead of the other two products.

vCloud Director is definitely my favorite as far as cloud managers. The only thing that compares is Cisco UCS Director, but it has slightly different functionality and purpose. I understand why a lot of clients still go with vCloud Director even though VMware intends to sunset it

was not part of initial purchase team. Anyways, i think unit pricing and billing frequency is good compared to other Cloud service providers, when it comes to Cloud Capital expenditure & Operational expenditure. Would be more interested in exploring more options where customers can get more cost relaxations on trying out new cloud services in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for example a new App or a feature

Services & Infra wise is ok to use & host applications & services. Security wise also good for a Cloud service provider. It is a interesting area to explore & using it for day to day needs can be further improvised in future probably. Modern day Services like AI and Machine learning could be improved
Read full review Return on Investment It improved the performance of all the applications we migrated by an average of ~90%. OCI storage reduced the cost by an average of 40% on all the migrations we did. This includes backups as well. Object Storage Archive is the most reliable and cheapest storage available for DB backups or application backups. This reduced our storage costs significantly compared to on-premises. The minimum volume size for block volume is 50 GB. This forced us to use more storage on some applications but the impact of the cost increase is < 5%. Lack of reduced redundancy storage options in object storage may have increased costs by > 8% for our use-case.
