Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers tools and architecture that improves automation and built-in security, allowing organizations to seamlessly migrate from on premise to the Cloud. Here are your top 10 reasons to adopt Oracle Cloud.
- Oracle delivers a second-generation cloud.
Oracle Cloud provides various tools and architecture that allow an organization to have easy movement to the Cloud, thus allowing for improved automation and heightened security. Additionally, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure encourages innovation, increased scalability, and availability, and better control and reliability backed by end-to-end SLAs. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s improved architecture further provides for organizations by providing better and faster performance, better pricing, more robust security, and increased compatibility for organizational workloads. All of this, plus Oracle’s ability to deliver IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS services, allows organizations to deploy imperative applications and further foster innovation among your organization.
- Oracle Cloud supports your long-term plans.
Oracle Cloud’s new infrastructure is made to provide better performance predictability, heightened security, and the governance needed to support intense workloads. It also can compute, storage, database, networking, and platform services required for organizations to foster robust results.
- Capabilities to optimize performance.
Oracle’s IaaS offering provides a variety of capabilities, from its bare metal services to remote direct memory access (RDMA). This great differentiator allows Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to ensure both predictable performance and customer isolation. It also paves the way for other innovations such as Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse and Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing. Lastly, Oracle’s autonomous self-repairing capacities mean that your organization’s data will remain safe and easily accessible.
- Defense in depth.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure also provides excellent security, from customer isolation and data security to internal-threat detection and automated threat remediation. By using a limited attack surface and layers of built-in firewalls, DDoS and encryption, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure also ensures that your personal data and traffic are protected from other users by separating your code, data, and resources from management, providing greater security in a cloud environment.
- Optimized for Oracle workloads.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers several tools that allow for easy and efficient operation, with minimal changes and reduced cost and migration time. Oracle databases can span to up to 40 terabytes of capacity and can produce millions of input/output operations per second (IOPS) per instance. To handle these IOPS, Oracle also provides up to 51.2TB per instance of local, all-flash nonvolatile memory express (NVMe) storage. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure also provides a host of migration, provisioning, and management tools such as Oracle E-business Suite, Oracle’s PeopleSoft, Siebel, and JD Edwards. More specifically, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides the basis for integration, containers, microservices, blockchain, and other services.
- Get comprehensive support for app development.
As an organization, Oracle is continuously growing and innovating, which allows it to provide an open, standards-based, and fully integrated application development platform for all your organizational projects and needs. Oracle AppDev provides a supportive DevOps environment for continuous integration and delivery, as well as in-depth diagnostics for Java applications and streamlined integration with SaaS and on-premise software.
- Maximized price/performance.
By using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, organizations can use fewer servers and storage volumes, all for a lower cost and better performance. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s non-blocking architecture assists in reducing latency and risk and increases security.
- Oracle Cloud outperforms AWS.
With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, organizations can receive the best performance for the lowest price, making it the top choice to run Oracle Database, an imperative enterprise application. In contrast, AWS lacks multivendor flexibility as it does not offer Oracle RAC, Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, or Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing.
- Oracle Cloud supports SMB growth.
Oracle Cloud is designed to support all enterprises, including the planned growth of SMBs. SMBs tend to grow more and thus experience more application adoption rates, while still facing the same challenges as larger organizations. Therefore, Oracle Cloud is an essential tool for developers and mission-critical workloads.
- Oracle and Microsoft provide a connected cloud.
Oracle and Microsoft’s cloud interoperability partnership encourages organizations to migrate to the Cloud or build new applications with straightforward and efficient inoperability. Not only does Oracle and Microsoft’s partnership enable cross-cloud interconnection and integrated cloud services, but it also allows for a collaborative support model and flexibility in application deployment.
Overall, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides a host of tools, capabilities, and benefits, from increased performance and security, to lower cost and higher efficiency. With seamless interoperability, strong partnerships, and constant innovation, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a useful and beneficial tool that can be beneficial to any organization.
