New Delhi , Feb. 28 : Continuing to help organisations simplify cloud adoption by bringing the benefits of the cloud inside their own datacenters, Oracle today announced the expansion of the Oracle Cloud at Customer portfolio with the availability of Oracle Exadata Cloud Machine.
Oracle is offering organisations the ultimate in choice and flexibility in where they deploy the world's most advanced database cloud for mission-critical workloads. Organisations can now deploy Oracle Exadata in a number of ways, including as a cloud service inside their own datacenter, in the Oracle Cloud, and in a traditional on-premises environment.
While organisations look forward to moving their enterprise workloads to the public cloud, many have been constrained by business, legislative, and regulatory requirements that have prevented them from moving their data and applications outside their own datacenter.
Oracle Exadata Cloud Machine delivers the full power of the Oracle Exadata Cloud Service that resides in Oracle's public cloud to customers who require or prefer their databases to be located on-premises.
"For many years, Oracle Exadata has been the platform of choice for running mission critical Oracle databases at thousands of customers, and the Oracle Exadata Cloud Machine extends this value proposition to those customers who want cloud benefits but cannot or aren't yet ready to move to a public cloud," said Juan Loaiza, Senior VP-systems technologies, Oracle.
With Oracle Exadata Cloud Machine, customers have subscription access to the most powerful Oracle database with all options and features, like Real Application Clusters, Database In-Memory, Active Data Guard and Advanced Security, offering extremely high levels of performance, availability and security features for mission-critical workloads.
Additionally, the Oracle Exadata Cloud Machine is 100 percent compatible with on-premises and Oracle Cloud applications and databases, ensuring any existing application can be quickly migrated to the cloud without changes.
The business model is just like a public cloud subscription; the hardware and software is the same; Oracle experts monitor and manage the infrastructure; and the same tools used in Oracle's public cloud are used to provision resources on the Cloud Machine.
Since the software is seamless with the Oracle Cloud, customers can use it for a number of use cases, including disaster recovery, elastic bursting and lift-and-shift workload migration.
Additionally, as a fully managed Oracle offering, customers get the same experience and the latest innovations and benefits using it in their datacenter as in the Oracle Cloud.
