Cloud technology is rapidly evolving, with new capabilities being brought to market every day. It’s no longer a question of whether or not you should move to the cloud, but rather what cloud innovations best suit your business needs. If you’re thinking about moving your business to Oracle Cloud but are unsure of what’s available to you, here are some of the top benefits:

1. Next-generation cloud and on-premises Infrastructure

Oracle’s next-generation cloud is built from the foundation of our first-generation cloud infrastructure, while delivering an intelligent and self-governing solution to enable the most complex and demanding workloads. It provides high performance compute and network performance using the latest generation of hardware for maximum performance. In addition, it offers real-time elastic scalability for cloud native and enterprise application workloads by combining Oracle's autonomous services and integrated security. And, it’s available both in the public cloud and your data centers.

2. Autonomous operations

Oracle’s next-generation cloud is built to run the world’s only autonomous database with autonomous services that enable new efficiencies across data management for better performance, security, and lower costs. The Oracle Autonomous Database runs natively on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure while providing workload-optimized cloud services for transaction processing and data warehousing. With the Autonomous Database, it manages tasks such as provisioning, configuring, tuning, scaling, patching, and encrypting of databases. The self-driving system reduces manual tasks and errors, while dramatically increasing system reliability and operational efficiency.
