The majority of enterprise workloads—between 68% and 82%, according to industry analysts —still live on-premises. These are typically the complex, mission-critical, traditional applications that businesses rely on. Organizations want to bring the benefits of public cloud to these workloads, but it's a daunting task.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is purpose-built for the enterprise. In our Oracle OpenWorld sessions, attendees will learn why Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is different than other clouds—from its standout performance to its commitment to openness to its focus on security—and how it enables organizations to succeed.
On Monday, October 22nd, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure: The Basics and the Next Level session covers the core capabilities that make migration of critical enterprise applications possible. Attendees will also hear about some differentiating features around machine learning, high-performance computing, containers, and other emerging technologies.
And on Tuesday, October 23rd, our Your Cloud Transformation Roadmap on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Keynote session features customers talking about how they used these capabilities to improve application performance and reduce costs. For deep dives on some of these emerging technologies, attend High-Performance Computing That's Better Than On-Premises: Real-World Stories and Kubernetes in an Oracle Hybrid Cloud.
Oracle built its infrastructure as a service because it's necessary to run databases in the cloud. Sessions at OpenWorld will provide a technical overview of running Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and share some dos and don'ts around Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is also a natural fit for other Oracle applications, and two customers who recently migrated will discuss the benefits in the session Why Oracle Applications Run Best on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, organizations can take their existing on-premises security technologies with them when they migrate, an approach called "move and improve." The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Security Architecture: Peek Under the Covers session explains how hardware and software provide comprehensive compute and network security, and how customers benefit from these innovations.
Attendees who use multiple cloud providers can get specific security advice in a session on Cisco Tetration, a cloud workload protection service built on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
An enterprise-grade cloud is a cloud that enables all businesses, regardless of their size or age, to take advantage of the latest and greatest technology. In Accomplish the Impossible with the Cloud: Hear How Startups Are Doing It, the leaders of four startups will share their stories of using Big Data, machine learning, and other enterprise-grade technologies on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Two large SaaS companies, FireEye and Netsuite, will share their rationale and best practices around Building and Running High-scale SaaS on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
For an enterprise perspective, there is a panel with first-hand accounts from companies that migrated to the cloud. And in another session, customers will describe how they use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to make their enterprise workloads more flexible, available, and performant.
Over the past several years, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has taken the lead in transforming Oracle into a cloud company. These Oracle OpenWorld sessions aim to help others on that same path.
