Oracle IaaS with Capacity on Demand – Engineered Systems Hardware for a Monthly Fee. Possibly the Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread.

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 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
Platinum Services
, 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.
Don't just take my word for it. Learn more about Oracle IaaS with Capacity on Demand at http://oracle.com/goto/iaas. Also, join Mark Hurd and Juan Loaiza on January 22nd for the LIVE webcast Introducing Oracle Infrastructure as a Service.
