Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

We are a small consulting software services company that implements custom APEX applications for the Romanian market. We use Oracle IaaS for our developing environments and also for some of the production environments. Usually, these are internal applications for 5-20 users on an Oracle stack, but not only, we also have some WordPress/Drupal instances running on Oracle IaaS.
  • a la lot of distinct services that instantiate Oracle products in the cloud
  • a good interface that offers many features
  • reliable SLA and good global content network delivery
  • a good prices and possibility to migrate licenses in cloud
  • still buggy on some screens
  • a little bit behind with versions of software, but they usually make upgrades once in a trimester
  • can take time to learn the documentation, but it has plenty
  • it made out life easier in what it concerns environments maintenance
  • easy to evaluate the price of technology infrastructure
Yes - I am a member of the Romanian Oracle User Group.

I follow up with Romanian Oracle User Groups events and I learn a lot from their speakers.

on Azure you can't migrate your licenses

azure is good for other instances like SQL servers that we own

- for developing environments it is accessible from anywhere

- for demo environments, it is easy to ramp up and to decommission
