In this article, we are excited to share how Bowmicro offers clients enterprise-grade SaaS and IaaS solutions built with Oracle Linux and Virtualization.

Bowmicro is a leading software company that provides managed data center cloud solutions and professional services in China. The company is a nationally certified and fully licensed high-tech company. These accreditations help assure customers that they are working with a reputable and reliable business with the proper technical expertise.

In a competitive market, Bowmicro has a distinct advantage by offering hosted cloud solutions at affordable rates. They work with customers from all sectors including government, financial, telecommunications, and internet providers. Bowmicro also has many clients in the rapidly growing small and midsize Chinese business (SMB) market.

Bowmicro is a longstanding member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN). They work with and use many Oracle technologies to build their managed cloud platforms. For example, Bowmicro’s SaaS offering includes Oracle PeopleSoft amongst other applications. Underlying these SaaS instances is an IaaS foundation built using Oracle x86 Servers, Oracle Linux, and Oracle VM which can support third-party solutions, in addition to Oracle workloads. This infrastructure layer is also available separately to Bowmicro's clients as a standalone IaaS offering.

These combined SaaS and IaaS solutions provide a highly secure, highly available architecture for a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Oracle x86 Servers allow customers to run workloads on industry-standard servers with high security and performance. End-to-end Oracle engineering and trusted boot capabilities increase workload security. These are the same servers used to build Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle Engineered Systems. Oracle x86 Servers include Oracle Linux and virtualization software at no extra charge, helping service providers such as Bowmicro eliminate hidden infrastructure expenses.
