We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution offers a low footprint. We don't have to come up with a data center ourselves. We basically don't have to own any hardware. We just rent a slice of their platform and we have everything we need."
"The most valuable features are load balancers, databases, and S3 buckets."
"The most valuable feature is that it is simple."
"There are a lot of features that I really like including ease of deployment, ease of build and release, and also that it is heavily focused on a PaaS or SaaS model."
"The experience with Amazon AWS is error-free. That was also, of course, something that I really appreciate. That means it's really well-tested and, as published or as declared."
"The main feature that I like the most is the variety of solutions that it provides. It provides some analysis, business information and more. It provides a wide variety of services."
"There is less work for the DBAs. Everything is handled in AWS itself."
"It has a dynamic scaling capacity which is very helpful."
"I find the interface to be great."
"Overall, there are some very good features on Oracle and it offers good customization capabilities."
"The environment is super fast so you get all the underlying machines behind the data. It's a good processing machine, especially in the Generation Two Cloud."
"Just having the many options and features offered by the product through the cloud is a major benefit."
"The security on the solution is very good."
"The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful."
"The pricing of the solution is pretty good."
"I like having the ability to easily run Oracle Linux server instances and to deploy Oracle Middleware and WebLogic servers. Oracle's Infrastructure as a Service products are also very useful, and we're using those right now within Oracle OCI."
"They should really consolidate and make things simpler rather than offer you hundreds of random options. The way everything is arranged really forces users to figure out everything on their own and then, on top of that, to calculate the total costs. There's an infinite number of combinations even just with cost calculations. It's just too much."
"There are some limitations for certain applications that happen regionally and it is an issue for us."
"They can launch the Oracle service in Azure, and we expect that this should be possible in Amazon AWS as well."
"One of the problems that I have seen is that some of the products are not as mature as others."
"I'm just bugged by the charges that I'm not really able to manage."
"One area that could be improved is in data management. They could improve on the data side. For example, I see others with better cloud services and larger data computing capabilities."
"We don't know whether to increase server capacity or alert notifications. We don't know which hard disc to purchase or what the next recommended CPU is. There should be an indicator. We would like to have more guidance."
"Some of their well-listed services are not super configurable."
"Technical support could be more responsive."
"Technical support does not offer the best service and should be improved."
"The solution requires tighter integration capabilities."
"The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated."
"The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options."
"The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at."
"I work with many clouds and I would say, in comparison, others have a better presentation of services and they have clearer steps in terms of implementation."
"I think that there could be a more user-friendly environment when it comes to the options that Oracle presents through the Oracle Cloud Platform."
"It's my understanding that our company is charged a few hundred dollars on a monthly basis."
"I find that Amazon AWS is expensive."
"The Oracle licensing is higher than it is with Amazon AWS."
"I think they've done a pretty good job with their pricing."
"Its price is kind of okay. When we do a migration from on-premises to the cloud, we typically use the lift-and-shift model. Based on the studies that we have done, cost savings are definitely there when we moved from on-premises to the cloud."
"The price could be lower."
"There are many variables involved in pricing service in AWS and overall the pricing is a bit on the higher side."
"AWS is not an expensive product."
"There is a subscription cost rather than licensing for this product."
"On a monthly basis, we pay around $2,500 for licensing fees, with no additional costs. We do pay extra licensing for other on-premises solutions, but these are not related to Oracle Cloud Platform."
"The price is fair, but we have to manage it to keep it low."
Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity more quickly and more cheaply than a client company building an actual physical server farm.
The Oracle Cloud Platform (also known as Platform as a Service or PaaS) provides a shared and elastically scalable platform for consolidation of existing applications and new application development and deployment. The Oracle Cloud Platform delivers cost savings through standardization and higher utilization of the shard platform across multiple applications.
Amazon AWS is ranked 2nd in PaaS Clouds with 102 reviews while Oracle Cloud Platform is ranked 4th in PaaS Clouds with 9 reviews. Amazon AWS is rated 8.4, while Oracle Cloud Platform is rated 7.6. The top reviewer of Amazon AWS writes "Flexible, scales well, and offers good stability". On the other hand, the top reviewer of Oracle Cloud Platform writes "Flexibility in supporting different capabilities and integrations make this excellent for moving to the cloud". Amazon AWS is most compared with OpenShift, Microsoft Azure, SAP Cloud Platform, IBM Public Cloud and Alibaba Cloud, whereas Oracle Cloud Platform is most compared with Microsoft Azure, IBM Public Cloud, OpenShift, Google Compute Engine and SAP Cloud Platform.
