Announcing Oracle Database as a Service, Java as a Service, and Infrastructure as a Service

I’m sure most of you reading this blog are fully aware that we’re now firmly in the vortex of that juggernaut known as Oracle OpenWorld 2013 (#oow13). As is always the case, news of new products and services from Oracle and its partners is coming fast and furious. It’s enough to make your head spin! Forgive me for piling on, but during his Tuesday afternoon keynote address, Thomas Kurian announced several new additions to the Oracle Cloud service portfolio including Oracle Database as a Service (DBaaS), Java as a Service, and Oracle Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

Oracle DBaaS and Java as a Service are significant new services because for the first time, customers will have full administrative control over the Oracle Database and WebLogic Server in Oracle’s public cloud. Both services will also be offered with managed services options, making it easier than ever to develop and deploy applications in the cloud. The new IaaS offers an elastic compute service that's compatible with OpenStack Nova and provides virtual CPUs and elastic block storage for deploying your apps. Also being offered is a new object storage service that's compatible with OpenStack Swift for access to digital content over Java and REST APIs. Each of the new services are now in preview and like other Oracle Cloud services, will be subscription based.

For more details about the new Oracle Database as a Service, Java as a Service, and Infrastructure as a Service, read the press release or go to www.oracle.com/cloud.
