We are living in an on-demand world. Customers have more choice about how and where to host their business critical applications - whether on premise or in the public cloud. This unprecedented flexibility has meant that the days of waiting hours, weeks or even months to for environments of compute capacity to be created are over. IT budgets are being transformed from CAPEX spends and poor utilization to on-demand OPEX, paying for what you consume. So whether you're helping to transform your business with the next wave of cloud-native applications that can take advantage of the cloud, or still relying on more traditional enterprise applications, you'll need a cloud environment that's secure, enteprise ready and highly reliable.

Oracle is uniquely positioned in the industry by virtue of it's broad range of offerings for on-premise solutions and integrated cloud offerings. Oracle Solaris is one of the key foundations of that strategy providing a secure, mission critical platform for hosting the applications that matter to your business. We give you the most complete choice of how you want to run your business. And we are expanding that choice today.

We're announcing that Oracle Solaris is now available in the Oracle Cloud.

Customers can now create on demand Oracle Solaris VMs, at no additional cost, using the Oracle Compute Cloud Service. This service is an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offering that provides flexible and scalable computing, block storage, and networking services using a self-service portal. Whether it's shared, multi-tenant infrastructure or dedicated compute, the Oracle Cloud provides a multitude of choice with a broad range of pricing options to suit your needs.
