Most firms are hesitant to move to the cloud in one step. Instead, they typically begin with an IaaS solution, then gradually establish a complete cloud platform (PaaS) for maximum gains. Commodity cloud vendors offer generic infrastructure services that are useful for basic computing activities, but performance is lacking for enterprise workloads.
Differences among vendors become even more pronounced when companies embrace cloud platform offerings. As a key component of Oracle Cloud Platform, Oracle benchmark tests revealed that Oracle Database Cloud performed up to 105 times faster for analytic workloads, 35 times faster for online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads, and 1,000 times faster for mixed workloads, compared to other cloud offerings.
Cloud infrastructure is often just the first part of a multi-step journey. Oracle offers a complete path to the cloud that encompasses integrated IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS solutions. You can simplify your IT infrastructure and minimize capital investments by utilizing Oracle Cloud services for infrastructure, data management, applications, and business intelligence. All Oracle Cloud solutions allow for flexible deployment models, enabling customers to seamlessly migrate their IT workloads from an on-premises data center to the cloud and back again. Best of all, Oracle offers competitive cloud pricing for all types of businesses in every industry, with affordable solutions for companies of all sizes.
