Cross-border cloud platform with latency guarantees.

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Oracle Cloud Platform is used for deploying company-wide, both internal and external applications spanning multiple geographies worldwide. This includes web applications with Oracle Database and mobile applications used by customers.
  • Oracle Cloud Platform can provide consistent latency guarantees in multiple geographics.
  • It works well with Oracle Database that is being used as the primary database without the need for custom configuration.
  • Oracle Cloud Platform has reasonable customization options to fine-tune it for workloads that require very low latency for events/transactions.
  • The management console for Oracle Cloud Platform is a bit sluggish and can be made more intuitive.
  • There is still room for adding more KPIs and configuration parameters to Oracle Cloud Platform that can give users more ways to fine-tune compute/memory/bandwidth-intensive workloads.
  • Pricing (assuming no discounts from a sales rep) can be improved to compete with Google and Amazon AWS.
Oracle Cloud Platform is well suited if you are already using Oracle applications, Database, or middleware offerings as you can move your existing licenses from on-prem to Oracle Cloud Platform easy. It is also well suited if you are planning to deploy applications that span multiple geographies, for example, the US and UK. It is not well suited if the applications are simple and scale is limited.

Simple and easy to use

I have used the trial version only and it seems very easy to use compared to other cloud platforms. I like that everything is already built-in like security, speed, and drag and drop/plug and play apps.
  • Easy to use - It has a rich UI experience, so it's easy to find what you're looking for.
  • Drag and drop apps - I was interested in music apps. There's an app for Spotify, which was cool to play around with and see how it worked.
  • No coding needed to use.
  • Cost is pretty high compared to others.
  • Flexibility.
  • More apps in the app store - More API integrations would be helpful, such as ServiceNow.
Oracle Cloud Platform is good for users who do not code to understand how everything works. It provides a rich, easy to understand UI experience. A sales engineer would be well equipped to use this. I'm not very technical and am new at coding, so this is simple to use as you don't need to code to use the platform.
Not yet, but I'm interested in Oracle user groups - Oracle Quest and Norcal OAUG in the past.

A Robust Cloud Platform

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
Oracle Cloud is used by sales teams and management. Sales reps use it to manage their pipeline and stay organized. Management uses this for sales forecasting, data management, and visibility.
  • Reliable platform
  • Everything stored in the cloud
  • Simplifies interaction with clients
  • Scaleable
  • No keyboard shortcuts
  • Visually unappealing
  • Limitations in integrating with other software
This is perfect solution for remote sales teams to stay connected. I would not recommend if you need robust reporting capabilities. It is also not the most budget friendly, so the SMB market may not see the value.

Oracle cloud platform is used to manage data or rather information by storing it on the cloud. This platform is used on department and not across the organization since not everyone is conversant with using Oracle. It has created freedom of accessing and also storing information securely over the cloud.
  • Information stored over the cloud is secure than in physical storage devices.
  • Freedom to access data at your fingertips whenever one needs it.
  • Oracle cloud platform has enhanced the understanding of the cloud and other technology advances using cloud.
  • Acts as a backup for the organisation's data.
  • Online support must be quick and reliable to users complains and compliments.
  • Add more tutorials on how to use Oracle cloud platform.
  • Develop other versions that are compatible with other OS.
  • Add graphical representation of various complex functionalities or rather menu.
Oracle cloud platform is perfect for systems running on Oracle platform. It ensures easy management and freedom of accessing data.
It is inappropriate to use it on non-Oracle platforms.

Testing and using Oracle Cloud Platform

Today, all testing and developing environments run on Oracle Cloud. We’re very satisfied by costs and latency to access all products and our employees work very well with the solution.
  • Oracle Cloud provides a lot of services in my country and this fact [makes] the access excellent.
  • The billing format is so easy to understand and adding more credits is so fast.
  • The possibility of giving a booster is fantastic.
  • In my opinion, the ability to create and maintain the environment should become easier.
  • Contracts should be less complex and easier to understand.
  • The monitoring of dashboards should be easier to understand and manage.
It's the best scenario to create more environments without having high license acquisition costs.

Oracle Cloud Platform is a Must Have!

We used Oracle Cloud Platform to maximize the number of user interaction with our various database tools as well as provide a central location for our clients to access data and reports. Its marriage between other Oracle stand-alone products was seamless and so our organization was able to adapt it very quickly and implement it across various departments.
  • Dramatically increases computing performance and as a result, it reduces any excessive IT costs
  • Integration of other Oracle products is easy and efficient
  • A user-friendly environment which also reduces any unnecessary IT support thus freeing up their time
  • Takes some time to fully integrate across a larger company, but this is more a reflection on how well a company's IT department handles this.
We had been slowly implementing Oracle products to replace several existing systems and so we needed a platform that would work to integrate across all of these solutions. Our company is fairly large and we work with a variety of clients and vendors as well. We needed an easier way for everyone to access information and discuss what data and future integration were most appropriate.
Yes - I am a member of the Boston Area Oracle Service Cloud User Group. We had been able to use the Boston area Oracle Service Cloud User Group for bouncing ideas off of other users with similar corporate set-ups as well as read tips and tricks posted by other users on their site. The information we both gave and received was invaluable and helped to get us up and running.

Using APEX with Oracle Cloud Platform

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

We were implementing a cloud-based sales tracking system...using Apex and the Oracle RDBMS. The database could really be anywhere and with its growth as we roll out the app to the field, my client wanted to give this a try over AWS. One of the things they were looking for was both ease of maintainability of the database (including upgrades) and ease of adding or removing CPU computing cycles, not having to host it in-house, etc.
  • Allows us to manage the database utilization and easily add or remove resources as needed.
  • No need for my team to upgrade the database. This is handled by the cloud platform.
  • Easy to connect to...same really as any other remote person.
  • Ease to secure and monitor who is getting in and when.
  • We really didn't see any need for improvement yet. The app is based on APEX anyway so it all is located on the cloud platform.
  • ...will update this review if I find something that we feel needs attention though
The ability to easily maintain the database and add computing resources was a key reason. The app is being used by remote staff, is not overly large but performance and availability are very important. Being hosted on Oracle's Cloud Platform allows for 24x7 access by end users and we can easily adjust the computing resources if more is needed.More will be needed as we roll this app to the field. The nice part about this solution is we will not have to re-host the database or app because of growth.

Oracle Cloud Platform provides an interface to allow us to interact very closely with our business customers. We can build apps in the cloud cost-effectively. It provides a good interface to create ERP applications according to our customers' requirements.
  • Never worry about losing data as everything is stored on cloud.
  • No need of costly equipment to store data.
  • Deployment and workload management is very easy. It provides a complete SaaS and PaaS platform.
  • I hate to say it, but sometimes I have faced performance issues. Maybe it has been fixed in latest version.
  • It should add more security features so that only genuine customers can buy products.
  • With every new version, the Oracle Cloud Platform is becoming more and more configurable. It means we require very heavy customizations, especially with some functional suites.
There is no doubt, we definitely see a profit through this tool. We can get trusted customers and grow our business at an international level. It provides an interface where we have superior choice and ease of use.

Currently, we are implementing POCs to migrate enterprise workloads from on-premise to the Oracle cloud infrastructure.The major advantage of using the Oracle cloud infrastructure is that it reduces the cost of running enterprise workloads. It comes with a low price relatively compared to other public clouds.The beauty of the Oracle cloud infrastructure is it eliminates IOPS for block storage.
  • Elimination of IOPS price
  • Only public cloud to support rac
  • High performing baremetal instances
  • Fewer operational costs
  • Fewer services compared to AWS
  • Other DBaaS services like MySQL and other NoSQL databases can be introduced
  • Migration services can be provided for low price
Oracle Cloud is best suited for running enterprise workloads. Legacy workloads can be migrated with ease when compared to other public clouds.

BI Solutions with Oracle Cloud Platform

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

We are currently using Oracle Cloud platform for one of my client organizations. It is being used to move the BI Datawarehouse from on-premise to an Oracle Cloud Datawarehouse. It has been used to resolve and provide solutions for on-premise infrastructure/environments to move to cloud environments.
  • Very easy for creation of PAAS services like Oracle Database as a Service, Oracle Analytics Cloud, Oracle Compute Instances.
  • UI Control on applying automatic/schedule patches on the Oracle Cloud Services of Oracle Cloud Platform.
  • Easy maintainability of application services in terms of admin activities like restarting of services, extend of CPU core, data storage on the Oracle Cloud Service.
  • Oracle Cloud Platform allows you to control charges based on amount of CPU core purchased for the organization. The needs may change based upon what is being used by number of users or number of hours.
  • Going with any Oracle Cloud Platform Solution for BI Implementation, I would prefer a strong/powerful Oracle tool to push data in Oracle Cloud Datawarehouse.
  • There are chances of overage charges on using the Oracle Cloud Platform, if you choose to implement any services with non-allocated core CPU. So expect to give some alert before even allowing to implement any service with not allocated core CPU or remove the displaying of non-allocated CPUs for users.
  • It can allow options where Oracle Cloud storage container username password as never expired.
I definitely would like to recommend Oracle Cloud Platform to colleagues and friends where the organization is using most of the Oracle based systems/tools and databases, it becomes really easy to control infrastructure/environment on Oracle Cloud.
