Oracle has launched a new family of offerings designed to enable organisations to remove some of the biggest obstacles to cloud adoption.
According to the tech giant, these “first-of-a-kind services” provide CIOs with new choices in where they deploy enterprise software, including a path to move business critical applications from on-premises to the cloud.
“We are committed to helping our customers move to the cloud to help speed their innovation, fuel their business growth, and drive business transformation,” says Thomas Kurian, president, Oracle.
“We announced a number of new cloud services and we are now the first public cloud vendor to offer organisations the ultimate in choice on where and how they want to run their Oracle Cloud.”
Kurian says Oracle Cloud at Customer enables organisations to access the full benefits of Oracle’s cloud services in the data centre.
“This is the first offering from a major public cloud vendor that delivers a stack that is 100 percent compatible with the Oracle Cloud but available on-premises,” Kurian adds.
“Since the software is seamless with the Oracle Cloud, customers can use it for a number of use cases, including disaster recovery, elastic bursting, dev/test, lift-and-shift workload migration, and a single API and scripting toolkit for DevOps.”
Additionally, as a fully managed Oracle offering, Kurian says customers get the same experience and the latest innovations and benefits using it in their data centre as in the Oracle Cloud.
Consequently, Oracle has unveiled the availability of Oracle Cloud at Customer services, covering infrastructure, data management, application development, enterprise integration and management.
At present, Kurian says the Oracle Cloud has shown strong adoption, supporting 70+ million users and more than 34 billion transactions each day - running in 19 data centres around the world.
