"The security on the solution is very good.""Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases.""Just having the many options and features offered by the product through the cloud is a major benefit.""Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs.""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.""Oracle does well when it comes to data privacy and security, which are critical."

Cons
"The product should offer more computing, similar to Amazon.""There is not a lot of support for this solution, which is something that needs to be improved.""They do not have a very good virtual network implemented, and the VPC is the most important feature that needs to be improved.""It could be more secure.""They could improve on customizing reporting capabilities.""The initial setup and the pricing are areas that need improvement.""The deployment can be a bit of a pain. There are a lot of packages and a lot of options and it can require complex configuration to get it right."

More IBM Public Cloud Cons →

"The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options.""In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence.""Specific to the Oracle Cloud; while they have been able to showcase inbuilt features for Oracle applications, what doesn't really come across clearly is what happens when you want to host, work with, or integrate with applications outside of the Oracle stack.""The initial setup can be a bit complex.""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.""The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated.""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.""The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at."

  • "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."
