Oracle is providing new tools for organizations that are moving enterprise workloads to the cloud.
IT shops are increasingly exploring the cloud for existing workloads, and are expecting the same type of choice, control, and tools they get with in-house data centers, but with the agility and lower-capital approach delivered by the cloud.
Oracle’s latest enhancements to Oracle’s infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) help meet those expectations. They are:
You can get more details in the Oracle press release about these enhancements here. Here’s one of the Oracle Cloud customers quoted in the release—Mike Ferber, CIO of ICAT, which provides property insurance protection to over 65,000 homeowners and businesses located in hurricane- and earthquake-exposed regions of the United States:
“ICAT is in the catastrophe insurance business, so we’re very sensitive to risk and business continuity. We’ve run our mission-critical online quoting application on-premises with Oracle Database for years, but keeping up with business growth was a challenge. The Oracle Database Cloud Service on bare metal exceeded our performance requirements and made a move to the Oracle Cloud feasible. The ability to quickly scale up processing power, as well as leverage Oracle RAC in the cloud, gives us great confidence that we will be able to offer our customers the experience and reliability necessary with our new cloud-based system.”
