What is Oracle Cloud infrastructure?

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is an infrastructure cloud service for enterprises that offers the highest level of control possible because it empowers enterprise users to manage deeper into the cloud stack than ever before.Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a set of complementary cloud services that enable you to build and run a wide range of applications and services in a highly available hosted environment. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers high-performance compute capabilities (as physical hardware instances) and storage capacity in a flexible overlay virtual network that is securely accessible from your on-premises network.

How Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Works?

Powered by the reliable Oracle IaaS platform, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers true cloud freedom to large businesses with large IT needs.

If your business simply hasn’t yet been able to take advantage of Infrastructure-as-a-Service because you face strict data governance requirements, large blocks of sensitive data, or real-time performance needs, you may have thought you’d be stuck dealing with the limits (and costs!) of on-premises infrastructure forever. You may have also seen opportunities slip away, due to the inflexibility of your current legacy system – and you may have wondered about your company’s longevity in a cloud-driven world.

Find Your Best Oracle IaaS Solution

As you can see, the next-generation Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle IaaS offers a lot of variety. That’s because it was built to meet the specific needs of enterprises instead of small businesses, and the commonality between all enterprises include a need for raw computing power and rock-solid reliability, predictability, and security.

Instead of wasting your time searching through all the options that don’t matter to your business, or that won’t fit your business’s needs, we recommend contacting an expert who can help you navigate the vast landscape of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure possibilities to find the perfect balance between your IT requirements and your budget.

Benefits of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle IaaS

1: Reliably High Performance

“Cloud computing” used to mean “convenient, but slow.” With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle IaaS, all that has changed. Oracle’s next-generation solution offers bare-metal servers that reliably provide extreme performance that fully supports real-time processing, massive datasets, and high input/output operations per second (IOPS).

2: Full Control

In the past, Infrastructure-as-a-Service required you to trust a large portion of your governance to your cloud provider, but Oracle Cloud Infrastructure returns full control to the enterprise with the ability to manage your virtualization, servers, storage, and the exact location of your data center.

3: Complete Transparency

Worried about cloud sprawl? With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, enterprises can limit and contain sprawl quickly and efficiently with audit trails that track usage back to departments and help identify shadow IT. Plus, the integrated Oracle Management Cloud uses machine learning and big data to provide instant insight into both legacy and cloud resource usage, so you can act fast to control usage.

4: No Vendor Lock In

Run Oracle and non-Oracle workloads on Oracle IaaS and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure; use polyglot languages including Ruby, PHP, Node.JS, and Java; integrate with Docker, VMware, and other leading DevOps and IT tools; and run on Windows and Linux operating systems – all with the knowledge that you are always free to do what you wish with your data, with no vendor lock in.

5: Trust and Security

With the availability to use dedicated private network connections and a datacenter housed on your own premises, the ability to replicate your current governance methods (or improve them), and the flexibility to integrate identity access management (IAM) tools seamlessly, Oracle IaaS security can’t be beat.

Types of Cloud Services

There are three main types of cloud services: Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to cloud, it’s more about finding the right solution that supports your business requirements.

SaaS and Its Benefits

Software as a service (SaaS) is a software delivery model in which the cloud provider hosts the customer’s applications at their location. The customer accesses their applications over the internet. Rather than paying for and maintaining their own computing infrastructure, the customer takes advantage of subscription to the service on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Many businesses are finding SaaS to be the ideal solution because it enables them to get up and running quickly with the most innovative technology available. Automatic updates reduce the burden on in-house resources. Customers can scale services to support fluctuating workloads, adding more services or features they grow. A modern cloud suite provides complete software for every business need such as customer experience, ERP procurement, ERP project portfolio management, supply chain, and enterprise planning.

PaaS and Its Benefits

Platform as a service (PaaS) enables customers the advantage to access the developer tools they need to build and manage mobile and web applications without investing in—or maintaining—the underlying infrastructure. The provider hosts the infrastructure and middleware components and the customer accesses those services via a web browser.

To aid productivity, Oracle’s PaaS offers ready-to-use programming components that allow developers to build new capabilities into their applications, including innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), chatbots, blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT). It also include solutions for analysts, end users, and professional IT administrators, including big data analytics, content management, database management, systems management, and security.

IaaS and Its Benefits

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) enables customers to access infrastructure services on an on-demand basis through the internet. The key advantage is that the cloud provider hosts the infrastructure components that provide compute, storage, and network capacity so that their subscribers can run their workloads in the cloud. The cloud subscriber is usually responsible for installing, configuring, securing, and maintaining any software on the cloud-based infrastructure, such as database, middleware, and application software.
