Review of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure working with Oracle Analytics Cloud

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

We use this for multiple products and I use it to work on the Oracle Analytics Cloud - Essbase product. It was really good in terms of updating/upgrading products. We don't need to do anything as everything will be taken care of by Oracle. But, the UI should've been better for Oracle Analytics Cloud - Essbase.
  • Hassle-free patch updates.
  • Provides an extra layer of security.
  • We can opt to work with any of the Oracle products.
  • Definitely there should be some UI improvements.
  • File manipulation is complex.
  • Not sure if we can consider implementing the bulk copy/move across the folders in Oracle Cloud.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is well suited for working with Oracle Analytics Cloud-Essbase. Data processing is faster in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute, and Essbase can work magic with the high loads of data by taking less time. Security is another added advantage of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute.

Great cloud to get started with native and fatest DB support

We are an ISP that provides high speed connectivity across cloud, across region and across account. We support OCI just as AWS, AZURE, GCE and etc. Overall OCI is a comprehensive cloud that provides many cloud features like LB, auto-scale, and snapshot. The doc and UI are very clear. The speed is much faster than Azure.
  • UI can auto-refresh
  • Clear documentation
  • Support instance pool for auto scale
  • Instance page needs to add a filter to only show an instance for a specific VCN.
  • Instance page needs to show public and private IPs in a summary page so that user does not need to click into each of them to see the IP.
Good to get started for the cloud journey for an enterprise that uses an Oracle database already. This product is well suited for big companies because there is not a lot of widely available samples to use - you would need a team that is able to dedicate time to this product.

Good solution. Terrible support.

We are evaluating IAAS solutions, and we were interested in Oracle Cloud.
  • High-end machines: they are very fast and store data very fast.
  • Fast storage
  • The support is terrible: for the implementation process, if there is a problem, it can take days and multiple calls to get an answer—even when you have a mission-critical issue.
  • The response time to get an issue addressed is terrible.
It would be a terrific solution as long as you get committed engineers. Nowadays, you feel lonely and abandoned when there is an issue regarding the implementation. You are not a priority and it takes days to get an answer or a solution.

Not as hard to use as it seems!

It is used to put the Oracle HTTP Server for our POS. It's used only by the IT department and specifically by the channels section. The problems we have include the permissions on OHS configuration files using OPC users. Also, Oracle needs to make a GUI for administrating instead of always using the commands. Sometimes we have unknown issues sent to support and are solved by only restarting the server.
  • When we have issues with OTD which is not serving our needs, it offered a solution to put OHS instead of OTD.
  • I would like to see an administration GUI instead of the command line.
It is well suited to be used for OHS.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure at OOW

Score 7 out of 10

We are using for migrating Oracle SOA app to cloud. My role is as Database Manager. We are using this to centralize all products in one place, so we don't have to install multiple on-premise infrastructures. We have test and dev instances that we can bring up and stop as needed.
  • Oracle Cloud is easy to set up, once login access is done.
  • It has all parts of the SOA app tier and DB tier we need.
  • Oracle helps us in migrating from on-prem to Oracle Cloud. We are using their partner services to do this.
  • There is no easy calculator for the cost. Whatever we need to add on, or when we need services, finding the costs is difficult. You always have to work with a salesperson. You can do this for competitors like AWS.
Oracle cloud is good, if you're using Oracle products. If you're migrating to Oracle Cloud from existing Oracle products, it becomes easier. If you're already an Oracle organization, using Cloud Infrastructure Compute is very easy to do.

We are using it for running company-wide IT without the need for in house dedicated IT team.
  • Automation.
  • Reliability.
  • High ROI.
  • The cost could be better.
  • Integration with other clouds.
It is well suited for large scale, global deployments, especially when applications are Oracle-based.

We're evaluating for the technology platform, and are currently limited to the eval stage. We're looking to move the Technology stack to Oracle Driven Tech.
  • Price.
  • Integration in the stack.
  • Capacity.
  • New overall stack integration.
  • The reseller market is too new for sales.
IT is well-suited for a technology startup, where we are looking for a full complete suite of integrated products to build apps in the ecosystem.

Upgraded to Oracle Cloud

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

We are a shared service provider to other agencies. We have an existing on-premise environment in our data center and are migrating to an OCI-based cloud environment. This gives us the flexibility in scaling up/down our environment and to make rapid changes based on our customer feedback.
  • Easy to deploy and undo changes.
  • Easy to pick H/W and may OS platforms available.
  • Easy to customize on top of what is available by default.
  • Template-based images such as pre-configured SOA environment.
It is well suited for applications that do not need heavy customizations to OS and other platform-based configurations.

I'm seeing the future but they're calling me Cassandra

It's used for quantitative model data processing, and has solid support for our use cases.
  • Customer support.
  • Serverless compute.
  • Zero infra solution.
  • It's not open source.
  • It's pricier than open-source alternatives.
  • Outdated docs at times.
It's really good for streaming serverless big data processing for ML and AI applications.

About Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute enables customers to provision and manage single-tenant servers (dedicated servers such as bare-metal) or multi-tenant VMs using the same set of APIs. Spin-up elastic, self-service, pay-by-the-hour bare-metal servers. Oracle offers Intel and AMD based CPUs, and Nvidia based GPUs.

The vendor states Oracle’s compute and storage offers 2-5 times the I/O performance vs on-premises or AWS, with low latency and higher bandwidth. OCI is designed for apps that require consistent performance, including raw processing through CPUs or GPUs, millions of storage IOPS, high throughput, and low latency.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers both bare metal and virtual machine instances:
  • Bare Metal: A bare metal compute instance gives you dedicated physical server access for highest performance and strong isolation.
  • Virtual Machine: A virtual machine is an independent computing environment that runs on top of physical bare metal hardware. The virtualization makes it possible to run multiple VMs that are isolated from each other. VMs are ideal for running apps that do not require the performance and resources (CPU, memory, network bandwidth, storage) of an entire physical machine.
  • An Oracle Cloud Infrastructure VM compute instance runs on the same hardware as a bare metal instance, leveraging the same cloud-optimized hardware, firmware, software stack, and networking infrastructure.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is built for enterprises looking for higher performance, consistently lower costs, and easier cloud migration for their existing on-premises applications. OCI is consistently less expensive than AWS for a wide range of popular cloud workloads for several reasons: (1) in the area of networking, charges for outbound bandwidth are 74% less expensive than AWS, (2) for compute, Oracle delivers > 2X better price/performance over AWS for general purpose and memory-optimized instances. (3) for HPC workloads, AWS provides similar performance to Oracle, but is 44% more expensive and provides no local SSDs, half the RAM, no RDMS networking, and no performance SLA, and (4) for block storage, OCI offers as much as 20X the IOPS performance of AWS for less than half the cost.
