Reviews (1-21 of 21)
- Easy and cost effective for customers to migrate on-premises Oracle applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure reduced overhead and operational costs, investments in hardware, and associated maintenance
- Run large workloads at scale without a jump in pricing
- Ability to scale to provide as much (or as little) compute power and storage as you require
- Existing Oracle Cloud Infrastructure components are not enough to implement all cloud solutions
- UI navigation needs improvement
- The user interface has glitches and needs tags to be added to create services
- Integration with other tools or cloud solutions is not straightforward or not available
- Load balancing capability has limited functionality
If you have a combination of Oracle and other applications with heavy or low usage, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure might not help you or involve lots of initial gaps until Oracle Cloud Infrastructure comes up with many more upgrades or features to connect.
- The return on investment has been great with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure compared to the AWS.
- Hosting ERP systems on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is very cost effective.
- The new user interface has a lot of glitches and needs a lot of tags to be added to create services
- The reliability is not very good - instances are not available sometimes
Less appropriate: Less appropriate for non Oracle workloads with integrations, especially when the hybrid cloud model is used.
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure accepts large volume of data.
- All the software as a service items works well. To be simple adaptability.
- Implementation in much easier for beginner level users.
- Issues with database connectivity.
- Interfaces can be improved.
- We should customize what we need.
- Need more templates.
- Real time dynamic dashboard (Oracle Managed Cloud dashboard) in order to monitor your SLAs (Service Level Agreements) various graphs / charts given in a widget for various features like Monitoring Application Server health, Database Server health checks.
- The paramount is AUTO-SCALING feature in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, during Black Friday and Cyber Monday we noticed huge volumes of request incoming which resulted in customer on-boarding without any Dollar loss. The Load Balancer up-scaled implicitly. At any given point of time the elasticity of the resources can be easily extended.
- Managed services like Data guard makes the DB most reliable.
- OCI global foot print having 21 OCI Regions live across the globe, single AD regions sooner should have with multiple ADs (Availability Domains).
Huge volumes of request/data is easily handled with oracle cloud and the availability of Green/Blue Application Server Clusters
always standby ensures the reliablity of connection.
Since JCS is Oracle's SaaS extension to reduce the complexity associated with deploying and maintaining enterprise Java applications, we decided to deploy in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to ensure a better and seamless vendor service
- Works well with Oracle's SaaS
- Oracle Cloud VMware Solution delivers the same VMware experience that enterprises have on premises
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has cloud interoperability partnership with Microsoft Azure
- UI navigation needs some improvement
- Load balancing in OCI has limited functionality; it can be improved a lot
- Existing Oracle Cloud Infrastructure components are not enough to implement all cloud solutions
- Online training
- Great designed API/SDK.
- Stable infrastructure.
- Regional IP support.
- UI navigation needs some improvement - Network and computer should be easy to jump between.
- Lacking filtering function in instance UI.
- The instance summary page should show IP for each instance so that the user does not need to click each one to see IP.
- Ease of provisioning.
- Scalability to add CPUs or storage without depending on the infra team.
- Visual builder is a great tool for end-users.
- There are few limitations while extended file storage associated with database systems and is causing backup issues.
- Room for improvement on object-level cloning in the database.
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) was straightforward and easy to use to deploy containerized applications in Oracle Cloud (OCI) that makes it one of the top choices if you are already using OCI.
- OKE is fully managed by Oracle and resides in the cloud that keeps the cost to manage the containers low without need for a lot of customization for performance.
- 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.
- Thanks to Ravello, deployment of existing VMware and KVM based data center workloads is possible.
- It makes it very easy to monitor the path between users and resources to react to changes and eventual outages.
- Load balancing capability has somewhat limited functionality.
- Binary type for WebSockets protocol is not supported.
Moving forward, when Oracle introduced Gen2 cloud it looked very promising. We are in the process of getting Oracle Cloud Gen2 for piloting a few applications and based on our experience will decide to migrate the rest of the apps.
- Easy to use, great user interface and available on all interfaces like web and mobile.
- It is on the cloud, so it's always available.
- Quick access to the application.
- Need better management on access parts of the application.
- Need interfaces and integration with other company infrastructure.
- Better admin UI and control.
- Easy integration with existing PeopleSoft systems.
- The volume of data that can be created and attached to a new or existing instance.
- Extremely cost effective to build a dedicated platform with a lot of memory and computing power.
- Improved support from Oracle to resolve any issues with the configuration for enterprise-level customers.
- Some of the cloud solutions are bare-bones and not as efficient when compared to what AWS offers.
- Existing components are insufficient to implement all solutions successfully.
- Provisioning for environments
- Scalability for our environments
- Data backup
- Understanding what services will incur additional charges when you set up the environment not after the charges start to be incurred.
- Better PeopleSoft support for lift and shift. We are having a consultant help us with the move.
Insight into what is coming with some small ability to set the direction of the PeopleSoft direction of Oracle. My staff have also used these groups to make a network across the US with other government agencies. these connections have helped us share information as well as deployment strategies. For example through one of our user groups we were able to get the different fields they were using for DB encryption as well as the process they used to encrypt their DB. This saved us a lot of time and energy to re-invent the wheel. We have also gotten good information from different private sector companies around security and 3rd party products.
- a la lot of distinct services that instantiate Oracle products in the cloud
- a good interface that offers many features
- reliable SLA and good global content network delivery
- a good prices and possibility to migrate licenses in cloud
- still buggy on some screens
- a little bit behind with versions of software, but they usually make upgrades once in a trimester
- can take time to learn the documentation, but it has plenty
- for developing environments it is accessible from anywhere
- for demo environments, it is easy to ramp up and to decommission
I follow up with Romanian Oracle User Groups events and I learn a lot from their speakers.
It really helps avoid the need to procure additional hardware in order to initiate projects.
- The only supported platform supported by PeopleSoft Cloud Manager
- Consistent and predictable performance
- Underlying technology design is built for resilience and performance.
- 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.
Exposure to customer stories and experiences
- It is easier to operate a workload without having to buy, manage and support the underlying infrastructure.
- It is reliable, fast, quick to access and easy to customize.
- Billing can become a problem due to the fact that it is extremely granular and is broken out to reflect the precise usage of services.
- 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.
- IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service) is not a customizable solution. It's a pre-configured system which sometimes fits in customer expectation but largely differs in diversity.
- More improvements are being worked on by Oracle to improve cloud computing, Oracle systems do not share computing resources and need to be scaled in those areas.
- Third, Oracle private clouds are not delivered “as-a-service”. This solution is a rental which can be modified, but is nonetheless bound by hardware and software parameters, for a specified rental period.

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.
