Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Coherence

We are exploring the use of Oracle Coherence on Microsoft Azure. There are several possible use patterns:
  • Straight up deployment on VMs for existing customer lift and shift workloads on Azure IaaS.
  • For use in connection with Oracle WebLogic Server on Azure IaaS.
  • For use via the Coherence Kubernetes Operator on Azure Kubernetes service.
  • Performance. Superfast resolution of complex data grid queries.
  • Reliability. Availability domain support for disaster recovery.
  • Programming model. Frictionless API for use with Java 8.
  • Integration with Prometheus and other cloud native technologies
  • Persistence. Ease of migration from one persistent store to another.
  • Compatibility with latest Java Versions. Support for 13 would be nice.
  • Support for Coherence will allow us to claim a more broad and complete offering of Oracle technologies on Azure.
  • Support for Coherence will enable us to reach into accounts that have zero Azure and offer them some Azure.
Coherence kicks Redis's butt when it comes to performance and feature set. However, it lags far behind in terms of market penetration and cloud readiness.
Well suited for:
  1. Straight up cache
  2. Smart data grid
  3. Front end for other systems via Golden Gate
