This week, cloud services provider Oracle unveiled new enhancements to the Oracle Cloud Platform to help customers move business-critical applications to the cloud. The company announced the availability of the Oracle Database Cloud Service on bare metal compute, and new virtual machine (VM) compute, load balancing, and storage capabilities, all on the low-latency, high-performance modern IaaS platform.
With the enhancements, Oracle says that its Cloud Platform can now deliver differentiated database performance at every scale, and deeply integrated IaaS capabilities for customers of any size so that they can easily develop, test, and deploy their business-critical applications in the cloud.
Thomas Kurian, President, Product Development, Oracle said:
These latest investments in the Oracle Cloud Platform provide a clear path to develop, test, and scale applications – with the Oracle Database or third-party databases.
We offer customers the most comprehensive approach to moving to the cloud and accelerating their business strategies.
Oracle claims that the Database Cloud Service, both on virtualized and bare metal compute servers is ideal for development, testing, and deployment of enterprise workloads. The recently announced Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service is ideal for developers, business analysts, and mid-sized organizations and delivers unparalleled performance for mission-critical data warehousing and transactional database workloads.
