Oracle Cloud

Oracle Cloud is the database company’s public cloud service offering. Oracle has positioned and tailored its cloud services as the best option to run Oracle databases. It is a competitor to the market-leading competitor, Amazon.

Oracle has a global network of managed data centers set to run their cloud offerings. The company uses Oracle Cloud services to provide the cloud applications, servers, storage and processing on this global network. The network itself is built on 25Gb Ethernet; no node is separated from another node by more than one hop with the network’s flat topology. This network gives Oracle the confidence to offer a strong service level agreement (SLA).

Infrastructure, platform, software and data services (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, DaaS) can all be used to extend or integrate a company’s applications into Oracle cloud or to build and deploy new ones. Both virtualized multi-tenant deployment and bare metal compute services can be connected with a single application program interface (API).

According to Oracle, their later entry into cloud computing enabled them to both learn from the competition’s efforts and to better plan their own entry.
