Oracle Technology Through the Oracle Cloud
By mharrist on Oct 02, 2012
Thomas Kurian, Oracle executive vice president, Product Development, opened the Tuesday morning keynote at Oracle OpenWorld, saying that “our mission is very simple⎯it is to bring Oracle’s leading enterprise technology, database, middleware, and business applications to any customer, any user, any partner, anywhere in the world though a browser.”
Kurian explained how the Oracle Cloud includes platform services, application services, and social services, all built on top of a common set of infrastructure services. That underlying infrastructure includes storage and compute services built using Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud engineered systems, secure identity administration, and a set of services that developers can use to build applications such as in-memory cache, queues, and messaging.
