It is being used throughout our organization for holding and retrieval of huge data with our multiple cloud-based applications. It makes management of database easier then ever it was before. It helps in completely eliminating the hardware cost of server setup. It doesn't require anything to install by us. It makes management operations easier with faster data transfer speed at near zero management cost. It is highly reliable and scalable to always meet our needs. The performance of application is enhanced. Our IT people are now spending their time in other productive tasks instead of managing the database servers.
  • Ability to hold huge data.
  • Faster data retrieval.
  • Reduction of hardware cost.
  • Ease of management.
  • Scalable to meet future increase of needs.
  • Reliable to feel safe for data.
  • License cost can be reduced in reference to their me-too.
  • Web interface seeks moderation.
I used to recommend it to my colleagues and friends for holding and retrieval of huge data and faster connectivity with applications. It makes management of database easier and helps in completely eliminating the hardware cost of server setup without requiring us to install anything. It noticeably enhances the performance of associated applications.

Our organization is experiencing and enjoying the benefits of Oracle Database cloud service for using the most powerful and stable database engine overcloud without requiring any specialized hardware/server setup. The Database management cost is reduced efficiently. It is capable to be scaled up as per the increase in our requirement to fit the needs.
  • No Hardware/ server setup is required
  • Nothing is needed to installed by us
  • Stable and Secure Database engine
  • very reliable in terms of data safety
  • Few modern programming languages are still not supported
  • Prices are very high making it unreachable for most
I surely recommend Oracle Database cloud service to my colleagues and friends to experience the most powerful and stable database engine over the cloud eliminating the requirement of any hardware/server setup. It will efficiently reduce the cost of Database management. It can be scaled up to fit the needs always.

I am using Oracle Database Cloud Service for the deployment of Wipro Holmes Bot databases in the cloud. As part of establishing end-to-end automation using connected bots, we need a single destination to store data from various bots. With all the data in one place, it becomes easier to manage everything from upgrades and deployment of new bot releases.
  • Automated Regular Backups
  • Simplified patching and recovery mechanisms
  • Interactive Web UI to monitor the databases
  • Functionality to automate the backup and recovery process in Web UI can be a plus
  • Overall design of Web UI can be made more user intuitive
Oracle Database Cloud Service is well suited where we need a centralized database service with high availability and less maintenance cost.
Also, the cost and time to deploy are also very minimal which can help clients to quickly set up their ecosystem and scale it accordingly based on data load in the future.

We use it in our department, and created a few data-marts for our on prims data warehouse. We also use DBaaS for our biApps fusion applications for our backend data warehouse. We also use OBI and OTBI to load data from the Oracle application to these DBaaS databases. We're planning to create a shadow environment of our exiting data warehouse as well.
  • It's easy to spin it up.
  • An easy backup and restore process.
  • Patching is made easy.
  • It connects to local clients without any issues.
  • When we restart the DBaaS instance, it seems like we had to add the NIC network back again. I'm not sure if it's specific to our instance configuration!
It is well suited for small organizations where they don't know how big the data is going to be, and Oracle is the best place to start. It's especially suited for startup companies, since it is easy to scale and elastic to upgrade resources. It takes only a few minutes to scale it up.
Not yet, but I'm interested in Oracle user groups - I am not a user group member yet, but I'm interested in joining a few user groups that were related to database administration. Recently we're also following a few user groups and discussions related to data science. The group memberships and discussions help increase domain knowledge, and it is confluence to resolve potential issues and be proactive.

The DBaaS Database Administrator role is created for the Oracle Database Cloud Service team to work on the environments. When the Database Cloud Service account is first set up, the service administrator is given this role. User accounts with this role must be added before anyone else can access and use Database Cloud Service. The identity domain administrator can create more Database Cloud Service administrators by creating user accounts and assigning them the DBaaS Database Administrator. Administrative tasks are generally provided using DBas role on the database technology.
  • Oracle Cloud provides Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). These services are used to build, deploy, integrate, and extend applications in the cloud.
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Data as a Service (DaaS)
  • Licensing cost compared to other cloud platforms.
  • Cost Effective & Flexible: Customers can start as low as a single OCPU VM up to 24 OCPUs. Customers pay only for OCPUs and Storage used.
  • Ease Of Getting Started: Customers can easily create Oracle Certified, full-featured, fully supported 11g, 12c (both 12.1 & 12.2) databases with choice of any database edition.
  • Built-in High Availability Constructs: Customers can easily deploy 2-node RAC configurations with all the VM shapes. For example: Easily deploy a 2-node RAC configuration with 2 core Virtual Machines and shared block storage of up to 40 TB.
  • Durable & Scalable Storage: Customers can use remote storage starting at 256GB up to 40 TB. Storage can be scale up with no downtime.
  • Secure: Customers still get all the advantages of our Oracle IAM for management control and VCN Security lists for securing their database environments.

The rich cloud management features not only lends maturity to any private cloud design of an enterprise it also lends the power of 'copy exact' i.e. bringing the error-free assembly line production and standardization into a hitherto majorly human-driven process. Enterprise Manager 12c determines the most efficient way to utilize hardware computing resources after transparently considering many factors related to the resources referenced and the conditions specified in any self-service request. This automated setup of the service catalog, intelligent placement of software resources, single click provisioning and cloning, followed by rich metering and chargeback go a long way in providing a predictive model around the on-demand consumption pattern of databases in an enterprise-class, private cloud environment. The features are complemented by database lifecycle management features like configuration management, performance management, patch automation, etc which make the solution complete from a DBaaS administrator's perspective as well. As we saw above, Enterprise Manager 12c covers all the major use cases for DBaaS, which yield significant business benefits and high ROI.

It is being used by our organization for BI Data warehouse and it is helping to have Oracle 12c database on cloud with very quick and easy step process with environment set-up of database. This database is helping us to build our cloud data warehouse on oracle cloud platform and do ad hoc and predefined BI reporting in cloud.
  • Easy to implement and set-up services in oracle cloud platform.
  • Easy for maintenance like applying patches, auto back-up on cloud storage and local storage.
  • Easy to scale up the core CPU & data storage for Database Server.
  • Secured SSH connection and very well managed to control access on the database as service.
  • It will be good to have UI control based auto backup options like retention of database backup, auto delete DB back-up.
  • Auto Extend Data Storage on existing local storage process needs to be little improved, it's not smooth to create the extension of data storage on local.
  • There should be some easy and better way of sending the DB monitor alerts (like Tablespace exceed,Index Space is full, High Performance Query on DB) to specific required email address.
It is very well best suited in place where people are using Oracle Data Warehouse and Oracle application tools, and also where they are planning to move to cloud platform.
