Cloud computing provides on-demand access to a shared pool of computing resources and is a natural evolution of data centre trends including virtualisation, consolidation, and shared services.
Oracle’s strategy is to offer a broad portfolio of software and hardware products and services to enable public, private and hybrid clouds, enabling customers to choose the right approach for them.
For private clouds, Oracle offers an extensive portfolio of applications that run on a standards-based, shared services platform; leading middleware and database products, including Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, for private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS); and best-of-breed hardware products for private Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Unlike other vendors with partial solutions, Oracle provides all the infrastructure hardware and software components needed to support diverse application requirements.
For public clouds, Oracle On Demand is a cloud service provider delivering application and platform services to customers. Customers can also choose to run Oracle products in third party public clouds.
Oracle Enterprise Manager is Oracle’s complete cloud lifecycle management solution. It is the industry’s first complete solution including self-service provisioning balanced against centralised, policy-based resource management, integrated chargeback and capacity planning and complete visibility of the physical and virtual environment from applications to disk.
