Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is helpful for data storage and virtual machines helped to upon run the applications. Data analytics reports were generated based on log files of the application. The business problem is to migrate from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to AWS service platform, this was migration project.
  • Storage
  • Virtual Machine
  • Reporting
  • Scalability
  • Global Reach and Availability Zones
  • Service Availability and Reliability
  • Cost Management
It works well for small scale applications and not global level applications with region limitations. It is suited for Low-Latency applications, not suited for Non-Oracle Workloads.

My organization manages a lot of processes outsourced by our clients. We use a lot of Machine Learning based solutions and require cloud infrastructure to support it. Since volume of requests keep on changing dynamically, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides an economical and convenient way to scale up the operations to meet the increased demand. This is being used for backend operations of lot of processes. Historically Genpact used to maintain their own hardware in data centers which was expensive and maintenance cost was high. With this recent switch to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, the performance has improved and the costs have gone down. Further, we can now focus on our core work.
  • Customer service is definitely one of the best I have experienced. A relationship manager was assigned to us who was not only involved to solve the issues we were facing but was also collaborating on different situations.
  • The data IO speeds are much faster. The queries take less time to retrieve results which in turn means higher employee productivity.
  • Data is always secure and industry standard encryptions are used while in storage as well as in transit during transfer.
  • The console UI is complicated and needs to be simplified and made intuitive.
  • Integration with other tools is a painstaking process. It should be simplified for a more pleasant experience.
  • Lack of self help tutorials.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is primarily suited for large organizations. I believe that for smaller organizations, it's still an expensive offering. For organizations already running Oracle applications on their own hardware, it makes perfect sense to move to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and use it's storage and other offerings. With the cloud storage, application performance improves drastically.

We use OCI for deploying our softwares. OCI is a great platform that helps in faster deployment, and faster application performance. It's also very secure platform. OCI is a comprehensive platform with robust support service, world wide reach, and has an option of distributed cloud that can be used wherever we need it.
  • Worldwide reach. Can be used from anywhere across the globe
  • Robust and fast deployment
  • Very flexible, dynamic, and easy to use
  • It's little expensive
  • mostly suitable for large scale enterprise apps
  • Requires specilized and highly personnels who can use this
Since it's expensive, its very well suited for the deployment and management of large scale enterprise softwares. It has helped us a lot in easily balancing the load on the app (especially in gaming app where there are lot of concurrent users), and ensuring that the app works flawlessly even with high load.

Some members of my organization performed tests over Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The results were excellent in terms of performance and the number of available data centers / regions. In fact, response times were great, with less latency than Azure and response times were evidently shorter. We were looking for an alternative to the costful, slow and limited IaaS Azure offer.
  • IaaS performance
  • Portal and web page response times
  • Number and distribution of DCs/Regions
  • Latency and performance of their VMs
  • Native support for Oracle Data products
  • Cost saving opportunities for specific resources and customers
  • Improve tools for cost monitoring and management
  • A more sophisticate clone of Microsoft AD
  • Better integration of resources between the same cloud
I just cannot be very objective. I received the request from management to perform an in-depth research on Oracle Cloud migration feasibility. Long hours of investigation and I concluded that yes, that's a superior product, not only for its IaaS but the Data management, automation and monitoring tools. Oracle recovered its place in the field with a very competitive product. I just got fascinated with it.

We use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to deliver frontend apps and backend apis, automated with CI/CD pipelines to proceed with UAT/PROD deployments
  • Better performance than other providers (AWS, Azure)
  • Pricing structure is simple and predictable
  • Offers SLAs covering performance
  • User Interface is not very friendly
  • Availability regions should be increased
  • High learning curve for beginners
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers a wide range of services and applications to assist with business processes in big companies (more than 1000 employess).

Think it is less appropiate for small retail/industry/mortgage companies.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers a large of computing resources, which was a use case for our company. the easy way to migrate our current services deployed on-premise with Oracle products makes us select this technology against others. we save time, money and a lot of transformation of configurations in the case of use another cloud insfrastructure.
  • Networking
  • Security offer
  • Compute options
  • More integrations
  • More SAAS
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is well suited in environments where customers are running services integrated with Oracle products, the migration process makes it feel easy and helps us to save time in the case that we want to migrate the service to something different to the Oracle, create a new process, and re-training our personal.

Oracle is a platform to manage several kinds of details pertaining to people and clients to manage data. With us it's used to handle employees data and it's usage benefits are tremendous. Not Just secure it's also fast in processing the requests. Data management becomes a piece of cake with Oracle!
.
  • Secures the Data
  • Accessibility
  • Processing Speed
  • User-friendly
  • Slightly Difficult to learn initially
  • Bit on heavier side on pocket
  • Limited Availability
The most powerful aspect is security of data which is just terrific with Oracle. Handling our payroll system was just not so simple. Thanks to Oracle! Things are now better like processing payroll, managing benefits, time and attendance tracking, compliance management, generating reports and working on analytics, connecting seamlessly with our HRMS helping in streamlining processes with utmost consistency, last but not the least Employee Self Service

We use Oracle Cloud for servers used in production and testing. Our problem was finding a reliable infrastructure provider with a data center in my country.
  • VCN is excellent for limiting the port attack vector.
  • Free tier gave us a quick test of what we could do.
  • The offer of arm and x86 cpu gave us options to optimize our work.
  • More Linux images.
  • VCN could have more tools to check how much traffic is going through an specific port.
  • Updated guides (current ones are a little bit stale).
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is a great fit when you need High-performance infrastructure for mission-critical apps that require low latency and high availability. Scalable compute services for big data analytics workloads that process massive datasets. Support for DevOps teams looking to streamline their development and deployment pipelines. But it might not be the best choice for Small-scale or low-traffic applications where you can find cheaper options elsewhere. Legacy workloads running on older tech like Oracle Solaris or Windows Server, where OCI's support may be limited.

Oracle Cloud is the backbone of our Enterprise Management Application, which we migrated from On-Premise Servers. Our Key considerations during the Research phase are Scalability, Dynamic Pricing, Easy lift, and shift (not many custom upgrades we needed, and Go Live required to be done as soon as possible without impacting Business), and Service Delivery. After comparing multiple vendors, we finalized Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as our go-to for migration. Its customization option, SLA Agreements, smooth interaction among other applications, and cost were the main factors for choosing.
  • Scalability: During peak hours, you do not need to add additional servers, load balancers, etc., manually. Oracle does everything for you.
  • Cost : It's amazing option of pay what you use really helped us.
  • Interoperability: As we migrated from On-Premise, its interoperability helped reduce the time for go live.
  • Marketplace : A better and enhanced marketplace for prebuilt/ custom application.
  • UI/UX: There is not much to change, but if the team can check customer feedback on the Support portal, there are many options that will make it even more amazing.
  • Cost: We love the dynamic pricing, but for a midsize firm, it's still a lot, so if plans can be drilled down further, that could be useful.
Suppose one is looking for migration with easy lift and shift without much hassle for developers and functional expertise in a budget with dynamic scaling options. In that case, one should go for Oracle Cloud. Also, if you are looking for a whole custom build, then a dev team with functional expertise is needed, as there are not many custom/ Prebuilt apps available on the marketplace.

We came to know about Oracle Cloud Service and we thought of shifting few service to their cloud platform as we have policy to not to keep all data and service in one cloud service. They said their cloud is lifetime free and we created 2 machines in one account. But somehow all our machines were down on one day and all our data was wiped. So we decided not to use it further.
  • You can create multiple machines and they don't restrict you to 1 instance at a time during trial.
  • Large range of operating system images are provided by them with customization
  • Memory IOPS are better.
  • They really needs to improve their User Interface
  • Information on website is very confusing
  • No proper listing of recently used service
  • As of now services are very limited
As of now their service offering is very limited as compare to other providers. Policies are not properly listed and they're very complicated too in my experience. As of now they really needs to improve alot when it comes to their website and user interface in my opinion.

I have been using Oracle Cloud since few years. It provides cost-effectiveness and flexibility in terms of computing resource sizing. While setting up the base infrastructure, it requires skill and solid core concept knowledge of Networking, Identity and Access Management (IAM). VMs sizing flexibility feature gives tough competition to other cloud providers in OKE and VMs. A shell script is needed for Taint and customised boot disk sizing of the node during the OKE node pool setup. From a DevOps perspective, it was challenging overall, improved competence and clarified the concept in cloud context.
  • We are able to cut down the total infrastructure cost
  • Easy to use
  • Easy to migrate
  • More services
  • Custom environment and configuration
we use multiple [Oracle Cloud Infrastructure] compute instances, block volumes, object storage, VCN aggressively for our multiple customers. Many of the customers have already moved their DC to [Oracle Cloud Infrastructure], also a few of them uses [Oracle Cloud Infrastructure] as their DR solution.So I recommend, definitely go for it

We have a lot of information stored in a couple different data bases and cloud services. Oracle makes it very convenient and nice to have a central hub where we can find what we need. Our team loves using it because of how simple and easy it is. We highly recommend to any company dealing with a lot of information and or data.
  • Their Pricing is fair and very attainable
  • Has tons of storage available for our usage
  • Tons of integration services
  • More cloud regions
  • Minor performance issues
  • Occasionally slow loading
We have loved using it specifically to integrate with some of the other tools we use with cloud storage. We also have been very impressed with the machine learning built into the software and what it has done to ease up some of our data projects we are currently working on. It has created a seamless process and much quicker turnaround time in completing these projects.

We used Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for:
- VMs (mutliple configurations across varying CPU ranges)
- ARM based Oracle Databases

Majorly, we hosted 3 -Tier application on OCI which had Apache Web Servers, Tomcat Application Server and Oracle Databases.

Good CPU performance over databases was important reason to move towards OCI.
  • Good Performing VMs with high CPUs
  • Databases can hold large number of connections concurrely
  • Applications perform overall better for speed
  • VMs are good but proper configuration as per application load has to be planned
  • Databases are very good specially in case Oracle but more opensource integrations can add value
  • Continuous Delivery automated pipeline will be great option
We will recommend Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for applications hosting where high performance is need for business applications like banking or health services.
Economically, they are expensive than competitors but performance wise OCI is better as well.

So, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as good choice in case business needs high-end performing applications and low response times.

We use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to connect and manage multiple networks with group of instances, it helps us to achieve fast performance and processing speed with VPN it helps us to process data with security in seamless manner to third party vendor applications, also the setup was super super easy.
  • Security while transferring data to third party vendor applications
  • on premis VPN support
  • steep learning curve for beginners
earlier we were using some different vendors but we found security issues with them then we found Oracle Cloud Infrastructure which provides all our requirements in lesser price also our main concern was security which is undoubtedly good here on top of that the authentication setup and data policy is something we like.

We use Oracle Cloud to deploy our apps in test phase before deploying to production. All out test servers are in Oracle Cloud and it is really great to deploy applications in real-time. We are really happy with this and is planning to use this infrastructure to deploy our production servers in the future.
  • Easy to set up and run a VM
  • Super support to deploy the applications in real-time
  • Easy to set up and configure
  • Great documentation of various steps
  • Difficulty in deploying applications for various regions
  • There is very hard pre built images for various OS
  • Less support for Linux based applications
The main reason we use the Oracle Cloud is because of its ease in use and ability to deploy applications in real-time. We use all our test applications on Oracle Cloud and its really easy to manage and test them before deploying to the production. If there is more support for pre built applications then this cloud infrastructure will be really great.

It was reviewed within the scope of testing our application for a customer that would want to run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, virtualizing our platform on it. This was the customer's choice, and our QA team then needed to validate installation and runtime support. This was an initial evaluation, with no prior experience.
  • Lots of documentation
  • Robust security principles
  • Too much documentation
  • Documentation a little too reference-style
  • Long turnaround for inquiries
I have no doubt of the security posture of an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure install, and the documentation is all there, but it is not really easy to learn from. We had to ask our best devops types to try out various approaches... eventually it can always be done, but it's tedious to get there, compared to GCP/Azure.

Robustness seemed clear, but a lot of config files to deal with.

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.
