back to article Oracle reveals more rounded Australian *aas

Oracle has flicked the switch on everything-as-a-service in Australia. Big Red has offered software-as-a-service in Australia since 2012. Yesterday it turned on infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service (IaaS and PaaS) too, splashing down its servers in a third-party bit barn rather than build its own. HPE adopted …

    Some work needed

    I did a trial of the Oracle DBaaS and JCS (Java Cloud Services) in early January.

    UI is nicer and more intuitive than AWS, but I had a hell of a time actually getting it to work - took me almost ten days to get a database instance installed and started with intervention from multiple levels of support (after escalation through personal contacts that "normal users" would not have had). Then another 3 working days to get a JCS instance to install.

    I was assured that I had experienced the "perfect storm" of routing issues between VLANs, a botched UI update, some firewall rule issues, and had exposed a bug in the IP addressing reservation system. Maybe it was a series of unfortunate coincidences, but I know I could have stood up the same platforms on AWS in less than an hour.

    Even though we are an Oracle partner (hence anon) we deployed the 300+ VMs we are standing up for a client on a different IaaS platform and I can't really say I'll be recommending Oracle Cloud to my customers based on personal experience.

    Never Ever

    Having experienced the joy of Oracle harassment to obtain licensing payment for 10 users, I could not imagine what a user of their cloud environment would go through.

    So I would still recommend Azure & AWS, before other offerings.
