Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

We run test/dev environments in our Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Tenancy. We test implementations of various Oracle stacks like - Oracle Databases, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Weblogic Suits, etc. We perform version upgrades, run migration scenarios, and take notes of the issues we face. This gives us advantages when we perform the same for our customers so we already know what to expect and how to mitigate these issues.
  • Cross-Region backup of Boot & Block volumes
  • Cross-Region replication of boot & block volumes to the paired region
  • Resource Manager - Managed Terraform
  • File Storage - There should be native cross-region replication support
  • Block Volume & Boot Volume cross-region backup - it's very confusing to know the actual source volume from the backup using only the source. Either source tags of volume names should be attached to the cross-region backup
  • There should be a native DR management tool, which can help to configure types of DR - Pilot Light, Warm Standby, Active-Active
  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure should provide more Linux Images like - RHEL, SUSE, Debian, Alma Linux/Rocky Linux. With native billing for RHEL & SUSE
  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure brought a 30% positive impact on our ability to smoothly perform the deployments of Oracle Software Stack
Currently, the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure platform is well suited for Oracle Workloads, but the platform lacks some services or capabilities that the market leader AWS has.

The overall usability is good.
The Universal Credit model (yearly contract) is well suited for workloads that are static & predictable in nature. But for short-term workloads, it's not at all suitable.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is best suited to run all kinds of Oracle Software Stacks. It should also offer the following services natively - Content Delivery Network, DR Configuration & Management, Native migration tools to bring workloads from on-prem or from any other public cloud platform.
