Supporting Your Own Journey to the Cloud

Edgar Haren
Principal Product Marketing Director

Today I have a guest blogger, Senior Principal Product Marketing Director For MySQL Bertrand Matthelie.  In the blog below he will highlight the core value proposition of "choice", and how Oracle provides customers with database cloud service options to align with their key use cases.

With more than 420,000 customers, Oracle clearly understands that there are many different paths to the cloud, and that your own journey may very well be unique. Whether you’re a developer, Dev/Ops team member, DBA, line of business executive or in another role, your requirements and goals will be different. And they will also vary whether you’re employed by a large corporation with a significant existing IT infrastructure or work in a startup for example. Specific industries will also have specific requirements.

This is why Oracle built a complete, open and secure cloud platform providing choice and access to innovation for all. In other words, a cloud without compromise.

Illustrating this core value proposition, Oracle MySQL Cloud Service was launched at Oracle OpenWorld. Oracle MySQL Cloud Service delivers an enterprise-grade MySQL database service enabling organizations to rapidly, securely and cost-effectively develop and deploy modern applications powered by the World’s Most Popular Open Source Database.



The only public cloud service integrating MySQL Enterprise Edition, it empowers developers and ISVs with the most comprehensive MySQL offering in the cloud, including advanced features, management tools and technical support to accelerate the time to market of new applications.

The simple, automated, integrated and enterprise-ready cloud service delivers the following capabilities:

  • Multi-layered Security: Enterprise-grade security features such as network access control, MySQL Enterprise Firewall, MySQL Enterprise Authentication, MySQL Enterprise Encryption, MySQL Enterprise Transparent Data Encryption and MySQL Enterprise Audit help customers ensure data is protected against external attacks & misuse of information and achieve regulatory compliance.
  • Automated & Effective Management: Best-in-class Oracle management tools including web-based cloud tooling, MySQL Enterprise Backup, MySQL Enterprise Monitor, MySQL Query Analyzer, MySQL Workbench and integration with Oracle Enterprise Manager reduce administrative efforts and costs.
  • Developer Enablement & Integrations: Pre-integration with Oracle Cloud Platform Application Development offerings such as Oracle Java Cloud Service and Oracle Application Container Cloud Service enables developers to quickly spin up a development environment. Pre-integration with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure gives them the choice to for example backup data to Oracle Storage Cloud.
  • Global Scalability: Developers & ISVs can instantly scale their applications globally relying on Oracle Cloud. Automated scaling enables users to elastically scale compute and storage resources as well as MySQL replicas. The MySQL Thread Pool provides sustained performance and scalability facing ever increasing user, query and data loads.
  • Hybrid Deployments: Relying on the exact same database platform and tools on premises and in the cloud allows customers to quickly and easily migrate existing applications to the cloud, move workloads between on-premises deployments and the cloud and architect hybrid deployments.
  • Expert Technical Support: Technical support is provided directly by the MySQL experts, backed by the engineers that develop MySQL solutions, to solve customer’s most complex issues and help them make the most of their MySQL deployments. Additionally, Oracle Premier Support gives customers a one-stop support solution for both cloud infrastructure and MySQL related issues.


Check out the Oracle MySQL Cloud Service video for a short overview:

Oracle has been driving MySQL Innovation for nearly 7 years, delivering the best MySQL releases ever. The release of Oracle MySQL Cloud Service is another important milestone to help you achieve your own journey to the cloud. Some customers we talked to will for example migrate their existing MySQL-based applications to the Oracle Cloud to help ensure their performance, security and uptime while reducing TCO. Others will focus on new applications and Dev/Test workloads in the first place. For some of you, Oracle MySQL Cloud Service will represent your entry to the Oracle Cloud, and for others it will be an expansion. Whatever your path, Oracle will support you.

Various resources to learn more are at your disposal, and we also recently ran a couple of webinars available on-demand.
