- Oracle Database Exadata Cloud at Customer enables you to apply the combined power of Exadata and Oracle Cloud inside your own data center.
- Oracle Autonomous Database is availabe on Exadata
- Exadata Cloud at Customer Enterprise Edition Extreme Performance is a subscription model that includes all the features of Oracle Database Enterprise Edition, plus all the Oracle Database Enterprise Manager Packs, and all Database Enterprise Edition Options.
- On Oracle OCI Console when any work request failure happens, there is not much detailed error information. It's hard to trouble shoot for the work request on the OCI Console.
- Submitting a SR is a pain everytime when we have OCI operation failures. There are supposed to be some function at live chat who can address instant OCI operation failures.
- 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.
- Reliability - we have not had any issues with downtime since we migrated.
- Scalability - the OCI environment provides options for additional modules and upgrades.
- Affordability - the features provided would cost so much more in a different environment.
- Reliance on Java in our current environment, though that's more to do with our older database.
- 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.
- Reliable, affordable, and secure
- Helps the developers to set up dev nd and test env in cloud quickly and easily.
- Disaster recovery features and and backup options availability are excellent.
- $ 300 free credit for the month should be increased to 2 months so that the credit can be utilized by trying all available services.
- Needs more work in the AI and ML space with more services.
- More regions are needed so that the PII data of customers remains in the region.
- 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.
- SSD's are offered only on certain instance types. This should really be expanded to all instance types.
- There is only one type of Block Volume that covers all the scenarios. Like AWS, more storage types may pave the path to cheaper alternatives.
- Object Storage does not have multiple tiers like AWS. All OCI got is Standard and Archive. Though Standard is cheaper than S3 standard, introducing multiple tiers may meet more use-cases.
FSS is suitable for medium performing shared file systems. If your HA application is writing files at a rapid pace, FSS may not be for you (in any cloud). You should consider a marketplace solution like Storage Appliance.
Object Storage meets all the requirements of durability and reliability. If you want to store data at a cheaper price tag, this is for you.
- 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.
- Secure access to your instance
- Remotely accessible
- Flexibility to chose your operating system without worrying about infrastructure
- Allows full network isolation, leading to uncompromising workloads
- Should focus on lowering costs on Windows Server computing instance
- Very limited support for IIS web applications
- Not recommended for beginners (requires extensive industry experience)
It would not be appropriate for using it for the sake of technology or trial purposes but only use it if it fulfills the business value of an organization.
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
- Robust Creation and deployment
- Various number of OS available
- Easy to integrate with services
- Cloud generated and managed keys are missing, it is hectic to create and allot a key for SSH.
- Free tier bandwidth is comparatively low relative to other clouds.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 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.
