Oracle has announced major enhancements to its IaaS portfolio to make it easier for its customers to move enterprise database applications to the cloud. Continuing its commitment to its customers, Oracle is upgrading its cloud platform with Levels of Performance, Availability, and Access for Oracle Database Applications.
“We introduced our next generation IaaS to address all of these requirements. With these database, compute, and networking enhancements, Oracle Cloud Platform offers a complete, high performance solution for business-critical database applications in the cloud,” said Kash Iftikhar, vice president of product management at Oracle.
With the update Oracle is offering Real Application Clusters (RAC), Oracle FastConnect private networking capabilities and also Windows server support to its next generation IaaS. This will enable organizations to deploy enterprise applications to the cloud keeping its speed and performance on par with its on-premise competitors and even exceed it at times.
Oracle has been the first and only cloud vendor to complete and highly available enterprise application environment, but with this, it is taking it a notch further. Mid-size enterprises now have unique integrated platform services that they don’t have to worry about, whether it is expertise or management. This allows them to deploy enterprise applications on windows servers as well.
“Enterprise customers and ISVs have high expectations for performance and availability for their database applications. At the same time, they want to preserve hard-won experience and best practices, particularly from on-premises deployments,” adds Iftikhar.
