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 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.
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.
