Hello, Moustafa (your name is correct now),
I don't know all the details but they´re saying
Technically it's possible to use Oracle in a Google virtual machine but,
for production, Oracle hasn´t licensed GCP for that.
If you were using bare metal, just licensing like a machine (processor /
core factor etc)
This url below has more details

And answering your first question about migration experience:
My personal experience: In my work, we migrated our databases that ran on
AWS (Oracle RDS) and on-premise all to the Oracle Cloud virtual machines
running Oracle DB nativelly; It´s works fine. However, it was very
necessary to migrate the rest of the workloads that relate to these bases,
systems that are now also in the cloud.
We are left with a hybrid environment, everything that has not yet been
migrated to the cloud runs in our datacenter on premises by accessing the
base in the cloud into a vpn (ok, aware about latency issues) and the
migrations are being done on demand.
At OCI also it is possible to negotiate a consumption contract and maintain
a frozen value, rather than relying only on pay as go and suffering from
price variations (dollar increase in my case, I´m in Brazil). and it's
possible to use your own premises Oracle licenses with their VMs.

How is it possible to use oracle on GCP on bare metal?
Do that have offerings for compute engines to be bare metal vs vertual?

Anyone willing to share experiences with issues they faced after
migrating from on-prem bare metal to GCP compute engines or equivalent
virtual platforms ?
I believe I have come across some article talking about CPU noise
phenomenon that happens between virtual boxes …
So any real life performance issues post migrations are appreciated !
