Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

we use Oracle Cloud Infrastructurefor hosting SAP systems for some of our customers. We faced issues with using Oracle Java. It is good solution when combined with different Oracle products such as Oracle database and Oracle Linux. As it is not a so explored Cloud service, it is normal to come accross some issues compare to other public Cloud Infra service providers

Pros

  • optimize for Oracle workloads
  • low price cost
  • get good support for app development

Cons

  • more integration features with other cloud services
  • complicated configurations
  • less knowledge posts on OCI to search when facing issues
  • good ways for Oracle workload optimization
  • a bit complicated on Security areas
  • Operational costs are more in compare to other Cloud services as Human interventions are required more & more planning skills needed
We do get Oracle Cloud Infrastructure support for Apps discussions on how we can utilize, but most of the areas in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, i think needs a lot of improvement in terms of more detailing in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure processes & services provided by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure technical blogs are very less & not really mentioned in details in public like other Cloud service prioviders

Yes

Would you buy Oracle Cloud Infrastructure again?

No

The services & products in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure needs more improvement to beat other Cloud service providers. The price is good & Security processes are good. We are requiring to put more effort in supporting this Oracle Cloud Infrastructure than other Cloud service providers. Probably better ways are there but is not super easy to find or not super available
Services & Infra wise is ok to use & host applications & services. Security wise also good for a Cloud service provider. It is a interesting area to explore & using it for day to day needs can be further improvised in future probably. Modern day Services like AI and Machine learning could be improved
was not part of initial purchase team. Anyways, i think unit pricing and billing frequency is good compared to other Cloud service providers, when it comes to Cloud Capital expenditure & Operational expenditure. Would be more interested in exploring more options where customers can get more cost relaxations on trying out new cloud services in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for example a new App or a feature
Best suited with Oracle database with huge loads on Oracle products to be able to optimize Less suited for a layman to come & start using Oracle cloud as it is not among very popular public clouds. The Oracle OCI customer base is very less in the market compared to other public Cloud Infra service providers although Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has collaborations on different scenarios
