Oracle APEX is made for cloud computing

Either by design or coincidence APEX is an incredible fit as the product for cloud based-systems from development to deployment. From a development perspective, APEX is a cloud development platform as all development is done in a web browser. There are absolutely no development components to be installed on a client machine. All components can that are developed in APEX can be exposed as web services and be consumed by other applications running on a private, public or hybrid cloud. All the end user needs to access the application is a URL. From a deployment perspective, APEX addresses some of the biggest issues with public cloud application deployments: dynamic multi-tenant workload migration, management and provisioning. This is because the APEX security, database, metadata, and application are all contained in the Oracle Database. This means an APEX application from bits on disk, to network, to database to the application can be managed, provisioned and migrated as one workload. This type of end to end workload management, migration and provisioning can only be achieved by using virtualization. With Oracle APEX, all these capabilities are provided without the need and overhead of a virtual server.

hi,

I agree with all of the arguments detailed on this article, but the true is that APEX is not available as a service on Amazon cloud services, as for instance the way oracle db and mysql are (rds services)!

My opinion is that APEX can be used in private cloud computing at big corporations with their own cloud infrastructure, but i dont believe oracle will be deploying th EPG or HTTP mod_plsql on Amazon as they done with oracle rds.

Regards
Joao
