It’s no mystery that Oracle
offers the most comprehensive and flexible portfolio of cloud products and
services in the industry. From public cloud to private cloud, our strategy is
to empower and support customers to make the best decisions with products and
services that address their needs throughout
their journey to the cloud. Today, we’re excited to announce the addition of
Oracle Infrastructure as a Service with Capacity on Demand (Oracle IaaS).
What is Oracle
IaaS you say? It’s Oracle’s newest private cloud offering that enables organizations
to deploy Oracle Engineered Systems, including Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine, Sun ZFS Storage Appliance,and Oracle SPARC SuperCluster, in their own data centers, behind their firewall –
all for a monthly fee.
Yes, you heard that right. Now
you can have Oracle Engineered Systems hardware deployed on-premise without upfront
capital expenditures in a pure OpEx model in which Oracle still owns the
hardware. With Oracle IaaS, instead of buying or leasing the hardware, you can
now spread the cost over time by paying a simple monthly fee – there’s no
financing or complex lease terms involved.
What’s Capacity on Demand? Well
for customers who want the power, security, and reliability of an on-premise engineered
system, but don’t necessarily need all of that computing capacity all the time,
each Oracle IaaS system includes additional CPU capacity that can be enabled at
any time to handle peak workloads and disabled when no longer needed. Capacity
on Demand helps keep infrastructure costs down because customers only pay for
the additional CPU capacity during the months it’s used, while providing extra
juice whenever workloads spike or business requirements change.
Wait, there’s more. Oracle
Infrastructure as a Service includes industry-leading services that maximize
performance, reliability and security. With the monthly fee, customers also
receive Oracle Premier Support for Systems, Oracle
and the new Oracle PlatinumPlus Services which provide quarterly proactive
analysis and advisory services to ensure that customers’ systems are configured
optimally – all at no extra cost.
