The cloud provides countless benefits for organizations, from improving business agility to enabling self-service capabilities. Yet, many companies are still struggling to make the move to public cloud as businesses find themselves confined by legacy environments and traditional workloads. Many of today’s organizations realize, they need a solution where cloud and on-premises must co-exist.

With Oracle Cloud@Customer, it provides a complete portfolio of public cloud infrastructure, fully managed services, and Oracle Fusion SaaS apps into your data center.  In our recent e-book, we explore how this offering is driving new opportunities through four major benefits.

Simplify your cloud journey

With the growing convergence of on-premises and cloud deployments, Oracle Cloud@Customer helps to simplify multiple workloads from different environments. The complete portfolio of services allow organizations to benefit from the flexibility of developing, deploying, and managing workloads on a single platform.

Oracle is the only cloud provider that gives you the ability to run Oracle Cloud in your data center. Oracle Cloud@Customer delivers the highest degree of identicality - meaning you get the exact same hardware, configurations, tools, and software versions as you would on Oracle Cloud for a consistent management experience.

Keep your data safe

Oracle Cloud@Customer enables you to meet demanding regulatory, data sovereignty, and application latency requirements while using Oracle Cloud in your data center. This provides greater control and governance of your data with standardized operational policies that you can apply to all workloads. It also ensures the same availability and performance SLAs provided in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure includes advanced security automation that’s applied across all layers, while machine learning (ML) helps masks sensitive data in partner or development environments. With always-on encryption and a unified security control center, your administrators are alerted of any suspicious users, configurations, or activities of attempts to access data. Meanwhile, the Autonomous Database delivers self-securing capabilities to patch, upgrade, and tune the database to reduce the opportunity for human error.

Empower developers with agility

The cloud represents a critical innovation tool for developers and analysts as it simplifies data management and automates maintenance for faster development. Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer provides a self-service portal or REST APIs to provision Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services, including a fully Autonomous Database in seconds. It also includes services such as Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Registry, Oracle Streaming, Oracle Events, and Oracle Functions for cloud native application development.

Meanwhile, Oracle Autonomous Database includes Oracle Application Express (APEX), a low-code development framework that lets developers quickly load data, manage objects, and develop REST APIs.

Run your applications faster

Oracle Cloud@Customer gives you the ability to run existing applications and databases on high-performance cloud infrastructure in your data center. You can run your applications faster and with greater scale using bare metal compute, VMs, GPUs, Autonomous Database, and Exadata Cloud@Customer. It also accelerates your most demanding high performance computing (HPC) workloads using optimized Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer resources.


Oracle Cloud@Customer combines the benefits of the cloud with an on-premises environment. It removes complexities of moving workloads between environments. It helps organizations modernize workloads while taking advantage of cloud-scale security, resiliency, and scalability for their critical workloads. With the path to cloud becoming a barrier of the past, businesses can now experience the best of both worlds and expand their opportunities for innovation and growth.
