We have used Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for storing the data and for computing. Our project was data-centric, so we were storing the data with its help, The storage and retrieval of data was really fast and secured. Data Security and Privacy was really good. Performance was not affected due to its scalability feature.
  • Database Management is really easy
  • It is good for large amount of data
  • It has a good backup and failover policies
  • Its Pricing is bit high
  • Knowledge is required to work on it
It is really helpful in the scenarios of Big data and Large data where the result display takes less time to display. Its user-based role assignation helps in increased security and Privacy. It gives a broad way for analytics.
It is less suited for small-sized data requirements as the cost to output is low.

We use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as a key component of our business continuity and disaster recovery infrastructure plan, and to host mission critical databases that require high availability. These resources are currently used within a single department but we would like to broaden the scope to encompass additional departments throughout the organization.
  • Disaster Recovery Plan Management
  • Cloud Storage
  • Cloud Database Management
  • Customer support is lacking in my opinon
  • I've found the initial integration can be confusing
  • Need more apps overall
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers full stack disaster recovery which encompasses multiple layers (application, middleware, database, infrastructure), and delivers this decently. Various disaster recovery standbys are available, and the single click disaster recovery plan creation and management tool has been especially useful for us since this is our first time implementing true disaster recovery preparation. Unfortunately, our experience with tech support, when needed, has not been fantastic and this is an issue that has to be taken into consideration.

We have a client infrastructure in GCP which we migrated to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Our main motive was to save the billing cost and in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure we achieved it by a significant margin. We use Terraform to initiate the infra consisting of multiple compute instances, managed Mysql and PostgreSQL and storage.
  • Low on Cost
  • Easy to use
  • Right scaling is convenient
  • Convenient to operate Managed Services
  • Security aspects
  • User Experience is not great
  • At times face downtime while loading the windows
Although Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is suited for Oracle clients with support of Oracle services, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to save some bucks while utilising the cloud services. We migrated towards Oracle Cloud Infrastructure due to low cost and support of "Dubai" and "Abu Dhabi" regions. We have segregated the regions but configured cross-region private connectivity between tenancies using VCN peering, which works like a charm. The only issue I have is Oracle Cloud Infrastructure lacks a little in ease of user experience in comparison to other cloud platforms, but if it's not a deal breaker for you, then Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is recommended.

When I think about Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), Compute, or actually just OCI in general, I think of three qualities: powerful, reliable, and affordable. Another feature that sets you apart from the competitors is ease of usage. High-performance processing capabilities are a hallmark of OCI, making it ideal for resource-intensive workloads and applications.
  • High Scalability.
  • Good Security.
  • Top notch performance.
  • Good manageability.
  • Support needs improvement.
  • It’s not east to integrate.
  • Documentation is little hard to understand.
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.

We use OCI for computing, storage, and networking. Both media dispatching and CMS hosting are the main functions we do in our. OCI performs the same performance but offers a lower price for PAYG users, so we can move a lot of cost-sensitive applications to OCI and get better internet without caring about hosting.
  • Good Internet Connectivity at Low Price.
  • Flexible Compute Resource Allocation.
  • Pricing
  • Simplified Console or API (Flow) for Small Organization.
Iaas parts are almost the same for OCI and other providers, but OCI provides better prices for small organizations; you may not use some paas&saas parts, like the Oracle database, as it's expensive. When you choose OCI, you may use the free support(they said), but we never used it; the documents cover nearly everything you need for IAAS services.

We have other Cloud Service Providers too but the reason for using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is the additional services it provides on the database side whether it is Oracle Autonomous database or the various Database Service and mainly it's unique Exadata features.
We have been using Oracle Database since more than 2 decades now and now as we have started our Cloud Journey the migration have been very smooth with its innovative tools and services.
  • Very Cost Effective
  • Better SLA
  • Best Database Services
  • Oracle Workload Optimization
  • Support Ticket Creation and Followup
  • Compared to other Cloud Service Providers like AWS, still lacking in providing many innovative products and solutions
  • Administrative Portal needs to made more user-friendly
1. Good collaboration with Microsoft Azure for adopting Multi-cloud services specially Azure for application side services and OCI for database side features.
2. Best for high-performance computing which could run multiple complex simulations along with artificial intelligence as an additional addon.
3. Very well suited for the pricing factors as it has much cheaper rates compared to its competitors (though needs lacks a bit of flexibility).

For one of our recent healthcare clients, we have chosen Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) for several important reasons. Firstly, OCI allows us to easily scale­ our IT resources, which is crucial in the healthcare industry where patient data and application needs can vary significantly. Security and compliance­ are of utmost importance in our sector, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides extensive se­curity features including encryption, acce­ss restrictions, and audit capabilities to ensure we meet stringe­nt requirements like HIPAA. Additionally, OCI's pay-as-you-go pricing model has allowed us to optimize expenses and reduce infrastructure costs. The autonomous database services offered by OCI have streamlined database administration tasks, resulting in significant cost savings. Lastly, we have utilized Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for disaste­r recovery and high availability to ensure uninterrupted business ope­rations.
  • For apps driven by events or micro-services, Oracle Functions by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure presents a serverless computing choice. It lets programmers bypass server management when running code, streamlining app development, and deployment.
  • The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure high-performance computing is suited to a compute-intensive and large data workload. The other type is a dedicated compute-optimised instance which contains a GPU that is useful for deep learning, image processing, and scientific computations. Such resources help in quick computing and learning of models inside the organization.
  • Self-driving, self-securing, and self-healing database services that come under Oracle Cloud Infrastructure autonomous database services include autonomous data warehouse and transaction processing. Database task automation can encompass regular optimization of various routines, enhancement of a DBMS, and assurance of integrity and uninterrupted access to the database.
  • Pricing: While Oracle offers competitive pricing, I personally find it challenging to understand their billing statements due to complex pricing models.
  • User Interface: I did not find its UI intuitive or user-friendly compared to competitors.
  • Integration: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure does not provide direct service integrations with other cloud providers or with services which makes it more challenging for the users.
I feel like there are scenarios where Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is well suited: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's state-of-the-art computing capabilities and data management services help organizations analyze and manage large datasets. It is ideal for big data systems like Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a strong choice for enterprise web hosting packages, especially those that rely on Oracle technologies, such as Oracle Database, Oracle Exa-data, and Oracle E-Business Suite. Its seamless integration with Oracle products makes it a natural fit.

We used Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for the Dev and Prod environment and mostly to serve up load-balanced application nodes. Oracle does a great job with VM instance management and offers a range of solutions, and we found that very helpful in supporting business requirements. It also solved for high performant compute service management for our applications.
  • High-performance workload execution and management.
  • Application load balancing and scale options.
  • Flexible and low total cost of ownership.
  • Documentation is sometimes not up to date and requires professional services to set things straight.
  • Better cost management support - Continued automation in this area will be beneficial.
  • Support an overhaul of issue submission and tracking - Operational aspects.
If you need stable and performant application services to feed to the web, app, or analytics routines then you should be looking at Oracle. I've had exposure with services for channels in Retail, Travel, and Marketing Analytics for batch and close to near real time scenarios and it is best in class suited for these industries.

We tested out a few of Oracle Cloud infrastructure services for selecting services among cloud providers for our company's migration to the cloud. Services include computing instances, object storage, MySQL database, and data science services. We wanted a seamless migration from an on-premise data center to cloud infrastructure for all workloads. For an enterprise of our size and needs, OCI seemed to be a good option.
  • Database services.
  • Logging
  • In database machine learning.
  • OCI Workflow.
  • Support is not up to the mark.
  • Limited options for OS images for VM.
  • UI can be improved to match the competition.
  • A limited number of services offered.
As per our experience, OCI suites well when there are simple workloads that require minimum cloud services. This is useful for many small to medium-scale applications to run on the cloud at a low cost or for accounting/finance services. It is also not recommended for hybrid workflows (as there is no support, which was our case).

In a heavily regulated business, we use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to safely and securely handle our documents and data. The Archival solution is flexible, secure, and very easy to set up. We also use it to create scalable microservices application deployments with low latency and API support. We use OCI to host our in-house SAAS applications, which require low latency and high availability for our bank's trading business. In addition, we need the proximity of the Cloud Infrastructure to certain market participants to further reduce latency.
  • The auto-scaling feature in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is extremely useful during sudden spikes in volumes being processed. The load balancer works seamlessly and is easy to set up.
  • Data storage and security.
  • Monitoring dashboard.
  • Global footprint is lacking as compared to competitors.
  • Integration with more cloud solutions needed(e.g. AWS).
  • Support is lacking a bit: slow response and lack of a wide community to help resolve issues.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is well suited for users who are starting with the cloud and migrating on-prem solutions to the cloud. The huge range of microservices available makes it easier to develop and deploy solutions. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure works really well to handle data security and storage requirements for heavily regulated industries like banking. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is lacking compared to its competitors when it comes to multiple available regions globally, which can impact some use cases where low latency is required.

We use OCI for our distributed database setup, storing exabytes of critical client information. This database, deployed across multiple tiers and clusters, ensures that client data is available for financial decision making impacting deals worth billions of dollars, including Risk analyses, mergers, private banking and infrastructure upgrade.

We use the Oracle 12c and 19c databases exhaustively for our purposes
  • Oracle offers a cloud solution for database hosting available across multiple tiers which can be scaled vertically catering to various data sizes.
  • Support is complete, quick and efficient
  • Helpful to effect migrations from OnPrem to cloud with minimal downtime
  • Largely supports SQL databases only, forcing us to find separate solutions for Mongo, Redis or similar DB providers
  • The setup is complex and antiquated, requiring significant training and upkeep
  • Connection into local instances is tough and often unstable, leading to significant effort spent for local testing
For a complex, multi tier, multi environment architecture where separate copies of the database have to be maintained with vertical scalability a distinct alternative based on the resource capabilities of the org, I'd recommend OCI. However, for smaller teams, it's recommended to go on a pay as you scale model

It satisfies a wide range of needs , it is used for hosting databases and applications . It has both oltp and olap capabilities , they have a robust platform for wide range of use cases . Its exadata cloud offerings are very highly capable of providing high speed database access to applications. It stands out with its competitors
  • Database solutions MySQL and Oracle
  • Compute services
  • Low cost storage services
  • Easy costing calculator
  • Customer support
  • More NoSql offerings
MySQL is generally used in OlTP environments , but OCI brings in OlAP capabilities with very good results

the costing is less compared to its competitors
storage services are very good and provide easy scalability and life cycle management brings in cost savings
It has fewer no sql offerings compared to other cloud providers and maybe would be good idea to bring in more in their portfolio

I have used it to manage different development and testing environments based on oci virtual machine instances over which different tech stack is installed like Nosql db and app servers in particular oci tenancy. Also used the storage services provided by oci like object storage, block volumes and file storage systems , all services above were integrated to be used with OCI logging and monitoring services.
  • security wise as OCI has advanced secure framework
  • performance wise as OCI provided high GPU instances to manage high level of throughput
  • overall database services as it is the core component which is integrated well within OCI
  • They could work on making it less complex and making it easy for users diverting from other cloud services
  • Should add more services with multiple options as provided by other cloud systems
  • Integration with with other apps as we cannot move everything to OCI at once , so it should be more compatible with ongoing apps.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is well suited for business who want to migrate their own prem resources to cloud in minimum efforts and resources as it provides several options for migration such as storage gateway with secure gateway while on the other hand oracle cloud infra should focus more on integration with other services and application , and should should increase services as provided by other cloud providers.

This has been used for collaborating, computing, data organizing, and instant retrieval. It solved problems such as addressing costs, security, and reliability. We were able to reduce our hardware storage costs with the initial outlay of the software program. This also addressed safety as we no longer needed to maintain on site systems.
We have a small office with employees in various locations so data was always accessible.
  • It does extend our business services on various platforms
  • Security has been improved for our product development.
  • Programs can also be run in the cloud making our traveling employees more productive.
  • Small businesses often find the complexities burdensome.
  • Security is high but if a breach occurs there is a lack of back up controls.
  • Training can be improved as it offers a once over to IT. This leads to further review to users.
We are a business in financial services with 5 employees. Each can work from remote locations, When we used Oracle Cloud several years ago functionality, cost, security, data sharing, were all well provided. These did include standard training and start-up costs. Our business grew as well as our efficiencies. Oracle added services that were not as relevant to our needs. A larger sales force could have justified continuing but we did opt for a change.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is used to host virtual servers and store data in our organization by the application teams to compute and process the customer data. As a Financial organization, we have tons of data coming into our system which should be processed to make business decisions for expanding the business and improve our systems and processes.
  • Reliability
  • Advanced security
  • Automated Tuning
  • Global Availability of Datacenters
  • Integration with third-party services
  • User interface
  • Community support
The use case scenarios of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure depend on multiple factors like size of the company, budget the type of application that you want to run but in general it is best suited for large Enterprise Companies which are on a Hybrid cloud model and which need services like Data analytics and HPC. It is not suited for small startups, short-term projects, third-party integrations, etc. due to budget constraints and compatibility issues in my opinion.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is a service based cloud platform that our team is using for a chunk of our sites build in Python. There are some 20-30 sites that use this service mostly oriented towards the database storage and file system storage as these sites are pretty content heavy in nature. That being said, the traffic on these sites are really high and this is where Oracle Cloud Infrastructure helps with their high availability and concurrency.
  • Our sites are pretty heavy on the content site per page, but Oracle Cloud Infrastructure performs excellently when serving them up to our clients i.e. high availability
  • Efficiency of Oracle Cloud Infrastructureis very high and the performance is always at an average of 99%. The 1% being the occasional maintenance
  • Monitoring system provided by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is to the point and comprehensive
  • There is a bit of learning curve. But I guess this is true for any service
  • Could be a little cost effective. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is really expensive on an enterprise level in my opinion.
  • The Cloud Support sometimes decrease the priority of open tickets to increase the SLA I beleive. Now that's bad, in my opinion.
We are using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for 20 to 30 sites and all of them very high in transactions and content oriented. The views per site per day each of these websites generate range between 5000-8000. But using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is really up to the mark because we have not seen much performance oriented or website availability oriented issues.

We use the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) as a virtualized environment to provide a save environment for testing new and emerging communication services like Virtual Private Network (VPN), Unified Communications (UC), or other tailored service offerings, which promotes rapid and agile service innovation and deployment leading to enhanced customer experiences and operational efficiency improvements.
  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Network Function Virtualization provides a secure and scalable environment for experimentation which enable performance and feasibility assessment of a service
  • Robust Security Features, including Identity and Access Management (IAM) and encryption
  • Ability to scale resource up or down on-demand eliminating significant upfront costs
  • Uniformity in design and user experience across all services to improve usability
  • more comprehensive step-by-step guides and usecase-specific tutorials
  • built-in cost monitoring enhancement for more proactive and control in expenses management
Oracle Cloude Infrastructure (OCI) is well suited for conducting exploratory trials of a 5G network slicing technology. It is easy to create virtualized network slices with varying QoS parameters, experiment with edge computing capabilities and analyze performance metrics. It's scalability and robust networking capabilities support agile testing and optimization. However, when we want to conducting rapid, short-term experimentation with a limited budget and minimal setup complexity, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure may be less appropriate. Moreover, its extensive capabilities may not be necessary for straightforward, low-risk experiments with minimal resource requirements.

Actually i was strugling with the performance thats why i discussed with my team to change the server then we started with the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and then we see performance of our server was too good. So that was the primarily concern for me and my team. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is the best selection for everyone who wants to run the project with sockets. Its too good with the sockets. The other things like source code management, auto deployment, load balancing then it can be a best option.
  • Socket Connections
  • Devops deployment
  • Source code management
  • Load Balancers
  • Logging
  • The user interface is not too good, It has bandwidht to improvement.
  • Loading of the Logs is little bit slower
  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is little bit costly as compair to others
If we are using sockets with our project and the user cloud is too much on server then Oracle Cloud Infrastructure can handle the sockets with very high performance as compair to others, Its my personal experience. I also worked on the other clouds but Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is more preferable from my side.

our company provides manage service. Therefore, we have few clients who use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
since we are providing solution to our clients therefore, we worked with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Our client wanted to Migrate On-premise workload to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  • easy to deploy resources
  • different compute devices are available to choose from
  • Most of the resources will be ready within few minutes
  • User interfaces are not attractive
  • They should implement Quota capacity in each subscription by default.
  • Increase foot-print
Well Suited Scenario:
- Easy to use
- Cost is less compare to other public cloud
- support is excellent
- Most of the resources/tools are available
Less suited:
- For Oracle Cloud Infrastructure internal issue they are not publishing outrage notification for the client
- Quota capacity is not enable by default

I use small compute instances to host different services for my clients. This could be a website or a web application, but for others it is DNS or email services. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure compute is very easy to spin up and have ready to get things up and running quickly. It is very useful to have beside other providers like AWS, Azure and Linode for example.
  • Easy to setup
  • Easy to add new instances
  • Easy to maintain
  • It would be nice to be able to have more control about what is needed for a specific instance
  • Price is always important
I really like using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure compute instances next to other instances with other providers to have some redundancy and have not all my eggs in one basket. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure does most of what I need. It works well and is easy to setup and maintain. I can definitely recommend it.

We use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure mostly for
1-Data storage management
2-Email Delivery

Storage Management- It's amazing; the setup can be done with ease. Extremely good UI and is very intuitive. Also, the service is really secure and reliable to store a large volume of data with security.
For Emails- We can easily send marketing or transactional emails in bulk without worrying about spam or bounced emails. We can easily maintain or track all the communications without spending a lot of time on it.
Our company runs a lot of marketing campaigns, and at that time, this tool comes in handy, which can help us send emails in bulk without spending a lot of time on it.
  • Better Email delivery rates for bulk marketing or transactional campaigns
  • Better cloud storage with enhanced security
  • Cost-effective campared to other partners
  • Cloud servies and back-up is good too
  • In my experience, at times fetching the report after marketing campaigns becomes difficult to navigate
  • the time taken to fetch a report is approx 5 minutes which can be improved
  • In my opinion, technical support is not impressive
Since, I have used the product only for 2 purposes, i.e., storage and email communication. I can say that it definitely works for mid-market or enterprise companies who want to find an economical and user-friendly infrastructure to manage and store their data in servers with ease. The security Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides is commendable, and it can really store large amounts of data. The data migration service is also amazing. The set up is fairly easy and can be deployed within a shorter duration of time. Also, the organizations who need to send out marketing or transactional emails in bulk without worrying too much about their email deliverability and worrying about it ending up in spam or bounce, this can come in handy. It's very cost effective and at the same time extremely powerful.

Hosting Oracle Linux infrastructure on cloud for lower cost of ownership in comparison to VMWare hosted on-Prem infrastructure
  • Seamless integration with Oracle Linux.
  • Better support for Oracle databases
  • Clean dashboard for managing multiple instances of virtual instances
  • Granular snapshots recovery
  • Point in time data recovery for databases
  • Support for legacy operating systems
Ideal for Oracle Linux and database infrastructure using Oracle Data Guard or Goldengate configurations. In my opinion, the support in contrast is not at par with Oracle database support and lacks ownership and support quality
