Oracle Extends Cloud Presence across Applications, Platforms, Infrastructure

Oracle announced more than 24 new cloud services, including Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The new services span a range of applications, including Hadoop, Java middleware, Node.js, Ruby, etc.

Oracle Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison said his company intends to compete at all tiers of the cloud: Applications (SaaS), Platform (database, middleware, analytics), and Infrastructure (storage, compute and network-as-a-service), whereas its major competitors typically only compete at one or two tiers.

“Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That’s an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter,” said Ellison. “Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier and it’s one-tenth their price.”

Highlights of the new Oracle Cloud Platform and Infrastructure services:

Oracle Database Cloud – Exadata Service -- customers can run Oracle databases in the cloud with the same functionality, performance and availability of on-premises Oracle Exadata-based production databases, already in operation at thousands of mission critical sites worldwide. Oracle databases deployed in the cloud as part of this service are 100 percent compatible with those that are deployed on-premises.

Oracle Archive Storage Cloud Service -- provides storage for applications and workloads that require long-term retention at the "lowest price in the industry." As a “deep cloud” archive, the Archive Storage Cloud is suited for infrequently accessed large-scale data sets, such as corporate financial records, medical and pharmaceutical archives, cultural preservation content, insurance records and digital film masters.

Oracle Big Data Cloud Service and Big Data SQL Cloud Service -- provides a high-performance, secure platform for running diverse workloads on Hadoop and NoSQL databases to help enterprises acquire and organize Big Data. Combined with the new Big Data SQL Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud extends Oracle’s industry-leading implementation of SQL to Hadoop and NoSQL, providing users with a comprehensive Big Data Management System in an enterprise cloud.

Oracle Integration Cloud Service -- simplifies integration between the cloud and on-premises Oracle and third-party applications. Innovative new features, such as pre-built integrations and embedded best practice recommendations, provide an entirely new application integration experience. The Integration Cloud provides simple and intuitive application integration that combines business users’ ease-of-use requirements with the proven mission-critical foundation of Oracle SOA Suite.

Oracle Mobile Cloud Service -- simplifies enterprise mobility by removing the complexity in the mobile backend infrastructure. A next-generation Mobile Back-end as a Service (MBaaS), the Mobile Cloud allows developers to rapidly develop and deploy engaging mobile apps integrated with a robust enterprise-grade backend cloud infrastructure.

Oracle Process Cloud Service -- enables business users to innovate and deliver process applications independent of IT. With a zero-code, cloud-based process automation platform, the Process Cloud empowers business users to manage the entire lifecycle of business processes and gain actionable insight on process health and SLAs. Business users can now deliver mobile workflows, automate manual processes, and customize SaaS applications.
