Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

We help clients set up Oracle services in OCI, including database servers, GoldenGate MA configuration, deployments, etc. One of the problems I have with OCI is the lack of a data center on the west coast (I'm in Canada). Toronto is the only choice, which makes some of our clients on the west coast suffer. We have one client out there who planned to use OGG on OCI to replicate transactions, but due to the network constraints, they ended up using in-house OGG instead.
  • Scaling up and down with ease
  • Seamless integration with Oracle products like RDBMS, OGG, etc.
  • Cost for storage
  • Support - Having to continue asking for escalation in SRs is never a good practice
  • VCN
  • DC on the west coast
  • The OCI interface is confusing and non-intuitive
  • Better capacity planning
  • Scaling on demand
  • Rapid deployment
Although I have had issues with OCI, I generally like the services it provides. I just wish for better support, more DC choices, and a more user-friendly interface.

Would you buy Oracle Cloud Infrastructure again?


It fits the majority of uses for my clients. SLA, however, wasn't as good as I feel it should be. I think I had at least 2 or 3 incidents in the past couple of years. I have only had one this month.
Not really. It is fairly good.
OCI is designed for existing Oracle clients who are willing to migrate to the cloud, as well as those who are more concerned about the cost. Based on my personal experiences, big organizations are less likely to migrate to the cloud. Even if they do, they tend to use ExaCC, giving them some sort of "cloud experience".
