Larry Ellison announced the Oracle Public Cloud today! For those of you who missed this exciting announcement live, let me quickly summarize it for you:
The Oracle Public Cloud is a suite of Oracle applications, middleware and database offerings delivered in a self-service, subscription-based, elastically scalable, reliable, highly available and secure manner. Oracle provides hosting, management, software updates, and world-class support for these offerings.
The Oracle Public Cloud includes the following services:
- Oracle Fusion CRM Cloud Service
- Oracle Fusion HCM Cloud Service
- Oracle Social Network Cloud Service
- Oracle Database Cloud Service
- Oracle Java Cloud Service
So what’s unique about Oracle Public Cloud?
It is an enterprise cloud for business. It is an integrated suite of services spanning Oracle's complete portfolio based on open Java and SQL standards offering flexible cloud and on-premise deployment. The services offered in the cloud are based upon Oracle's complete portfolio of best-in-class solutions. They are fully integrated together so IT departments do not have to unify the solutions they buy, and the cloud provides an extensive array of timely and relevant 3rd party content to enrich applications. Applications can be built or extended using standards-based technology such as full Java EE applications and SQL. Organizations can deploy Java applications with no changes onto our cloud, customize Fusion Applications, and develop new custom applications. There is easy instant provisioning with a transparent, predictable pricing model that is based upon monthly subscriptions and consolidated billing. Additionally, applications and end users can move from Oracle Public Cloud to on premise and back. Finally, the cloud is based upon Exalogic and Exadata, offering superior reliability, performance, and elastic capacity.
