Oracle and Microsoft Expand Choice and Flexibility in Deploying Oracle Software in the Cloud

Oracle and Microsoft have entered into a new partnership that will help customers embrace cloud computing by providing greater choice and flexibility in how to deploy Oracle software. 

Here are the key elements of the partnership:

  • Effective today, our customers can run supported Oracle software on Windows Server Hyper-V and in Windows Azure
  • Effective today, Oracle provides license mobility for customers who want to run Oracle software on Windows Azure
  • Microsoft will add Infrastructure Services instances with popular configurations of Oracle software including Java, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server to the Windows Azure image gallery
  • Microsoft will offer fully licensed and supported Java in Windows Azure
  • Oracle will offer Oracle Linux, with a variety of Oracle software, as preconfigured instances on Windows Azure

Oracle’s strategy and commitment is to support multiple platforms, and Microsoft Windows has long been an important supported platform.  Oracle is now extending that support to Windows Server Hyper-V and Window Azure by providing certification and support for Oracle applications, middleware, database, Java and Oracle Linux on Windows Server Hyper-V and Windows Azure. As of today, customers can deploy Oracle software on Microsoft private clouds and Windows Azure, as well as Oracle private and public clouds and other supported cloud environments.

For information related to software licensing in Windows Azure, see Licensing Oracle Software in the Cloud Computing Environment.

Also, Oracle Support policies as they apply to Oracle software running in Windows Azure or on Windows Server Hyper-V are covered in two My Oracle Support (MOS) notes which are shown below:

MOS Note 1563794.1 Certified Software on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V - NEW

MOS Note 1563794.1

MOS Note 417770.1 Oracle Linux Support Policies for Virtualization and Emulation - UPDATED

Top 10 Myths About Cloud Computing @ Cloud Expo NYC

Just a few days ago, I wrote about Oracle’s sessions at this week’s Cloud Expo conference in New York City. Despite some inclement weather in the NY Metro area, this year’s conference appears to be well attended and a big success.

I wanted to draw special attention to the keynote presentation titled Top 10 Myths of Cloud Computing, delivered to a standing-room-only crowd on Monday by our own Bob Evans, Oracle’s SVP of Communications.  Bob’s presentation did a fabulous job of describing and dispelling 10 of the most common “half-truths, mistruths, and good-old-fashioned falsehoods” as he likes to put it, about cloud computing that still exist today. I think you'd be shocked by some of the lingering myths about cloud computing, then again, maybe not.
