1. Oracle delivers a second-generation cloud: OCI is built for innovation, includes scalability, availability, integrated governance control and reliability backed by the end to end SLAs. OCI supports emerging technologies such as AI, ML, IoT, blockchain and human interfaces. OCI provides faster and more predictable performance, better pricing and security, and enhanced compatibility for enterprise workloads
2. Oracle Cloud supports your long-term plans: The infrastructure is specifically designed to provide the performance predictability, secure by design security, and governance required to support mission-critical, performance-intensive workloads.
3. Capabilities to optimize performance: OCI guarantees both predictable performance and customer isolation. Oracle ADW, ATP designed to provide low latency, high availability, resiliency, and consistent performance. This means your data is stored in Oracle’s object storage and multiple copies are automatically replicated—providing high availability and resiliency. Oracle’s autonomous self-repairing capabilities ensure that your data remains healthy and users can always access the last-known reliable version.
4. Defense in depth: Security is a key design principle within Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Oracle offers secure by design protection such as customer isolation, data security, internal-threat detection, and highly automated threat remediation. Oracle’s infrastructure isolates compute and network resources to ensure that your personal data and traffic are shielded from other users. It also separates your code, data, and resources from management machines—helping prevent attackers from stealing or manipulating data in the cloud. Layers of defense with built-in firewalls, DDoS, and encryption proactively detect and stop threats.
5. Optimized for Oracle workloads: Oracle Databases scale to many times the storage capacity and performance of competitors’, reaching up to 40 terabytes of capacity and millions of input/output operations per second (IOPS) per instance. Oracle offers the industry’s largest amount of local, all-flash nonvolatile memory express (NVMe) storage (up to 51.2TB per instance). Running Oracle Real Applications Clusters (Oracle RAC) on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides database high availability (HA) with failover in seconds, performance scaling into the hundreds of thousands of IOPS, and seamless operations via rolling patches and upgrades. Oracle Exadata Cloud enables customers to run partial or full-rack Exadata form factors in the same enhanced regions, and on the same virtual cloud networks as bare metal compute and other Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services—controlled with the same set of governance tools, and accessible via the same console/APIs. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers a suite of migration, provisioning, and management tools for key Oracle applications. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure optimizes analytics and transaction processing workloads. It is purpose-built to run ML workloads to deliver AI-based insights, enabling the customer to connect multiple data sources and bring together key data to support informed business decisions.
6. Get comprehensive support for app development: Oracle innovates at a rapid pace and offers an open standard-based, and fully integrated application development platform that allows you to build, deploy, and manage modern, API- and mobile-first cloud applications cost-effectively. In addition, Oracle offers support for container and cloud-native low-code developments.
7. Maximized price/performance: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides the best price/performance available in the market to date. Workloads deployed on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure often require fewer compute servers and block-storage volumes— lowering the cost of delivering optimized workload performance. The non-blocking architecture of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure not only helps minimize latency; it also reduces the risk of other network users’ impacting customer environments, and is backed up by the industry’s most complete, financially backed, end-to-end SLAs.
8. Oracle Cloud outperforms AWS: Oracle Cloud provides optimal performance at the lowest cost, making it the best option to run Oracle Database—the industry standard for mission-critical enterprise applications. AWS does not offer Oracle RAC, Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, or Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing, and Amazon Aurora locks customers into AWS, while Oracle Database delivers multivendor flexibility.
9. Oracle Cloud supports SMB growth: Oracle Cloud is designed with all enterprises in mind, including SMBs. That’s because SMBs grow larger and often experience a significant spike in application adoption rates.
10. Strategic integrations with global infrastructure leaders: Oracle into strategic agreements with Microsoft and VMware to enable enterprises to accelerate cloud migration strategies.
- Microsoft Azure Interconnect – The cloud interoperability partnership with Microsoft Azure allows customers to migrate to the cloud or build new applications leveraging the best of Oracle Cloud, including Oracle Autonomous Database, and of Microsoft Azure, with seamless interoperability.
- Oracle Cloud VMware Solution – Oracle Cloud VMware Solution is the only public-cloud offering that delivers the same VMware experience that enterprises have on-premises: full root access, full administrative control, and full capabilities of VMware features. But it also comes with cloud elasticity, security, native connection to more than 50 Oracle cloud services, collaborative support, and a unified console experience.
