Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Database Cloud Service

We use it in our department, and created a few data-marts for our on prims data warehouse. We also use DBaaS for our biApps fusion applications for our backend data warehouse. We also use OBI and OTBI to load data from the Oracle application to these DBaaS databases. We're planning to create a shadow environment of our exiting data warehouse as well.
  • It's easy to spin it up.
  • An easy backup and restore process.
  • Patching is made easy.
  • It connects to local clients without any issues.
  • When we restart the DBaaS instance, it seems like we had to add the NIC network back again. I'm not sure if it's specific to our instance configuration!
  • It's definitely a cheaper database service.
  • It's more reliable, and integrates well with other cloud applications.
Not yet, but I'm interested in Oracle user groups - I am not a user group member yet, but I'm interested in joining a few user groups that were related to database administration. Recently we're also following a few user groups and discussions related to data science. The group memberships and discussions help increase domain knowledge, and it is confluence to resolve potential issues and be proactive.
I am an Oracle Database administrator, using Oracle for 10 years now, and I love Oracle Database Architecture overall. The Oracle database as a cloud service is an extended version of a traditional database. We initially started it to use as a data warehouse for Oracle Cloud fusion applications. Since it performed well, we are planning to use it for data marts.
It is well suited for small organizations where they don't know how big the data is going to be, and Oracle is the best place to start. It's especially suited for startup companies, since it is easy to scale and elastic to upgrade resources. It takes only a few minutes to scale it up.
