Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The stability is the most valuable aspect of the solution.""It's definitely good for unstructured data. In earlier days, we had Centera, so for the DR it's really good. It has load balancing facility, and we're using it with the Kemp Load Balancer.""It is 100% stable. It is also scalable.""The performance is good.""This product is very competitive.""It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward.""What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor.""I like that the solution is easy to scale and that's its stable."

"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.""The pricing of the solution is pretty good.""The security on the solution is very good.""Just having the many options and features offered by the product through the cloud is a major benefit.""The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful.""Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea.""Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases."

Cons
"They do not have complete documentation, which is very weak and could be improved.""You should be able to calculate so that when it's full it's 100% full, not just 90%.""In Taiwan, they don't have professional technical support.""Its security can be improved.""The disaster recovery could be improved because there should be something in-built within the ECS. Search and recovery should be in-built. Right now, we have to use some external tools for performing the recovery itself. For example, we're using Atempo or deploying Golden Superna, so it has dependency on the external third party vendors.""The solution needs to provide better integration between this solution and all other kinds of systems.""The solution could be more cost-effective and secure.""Technical support needs to be improved."

More Dell EMC ECS Cons →

"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 scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at.""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 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 initial setup can be a bit complex.""In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence.""Lacking in additional PaaS services."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Dell EMC ECS is too expensive."
  • "We are not paying for the license at this stage."
  • "The solution could be cheaper."
  • "It's a lease-based model, so it's capacity-based. We already negotiated the price a lot, but we're still doing that with Dell because somehow the product was not installed successfully, so there was a lot of struggle in the distributor territory between Dell and the environment itself. I would give the solution a 6 out of 10 for the pricing. There's a little room for improvement."
  • "We initially purchased all of the licenses at the same time."

  • "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."
