Oracle Extends World’s Most Comprehensive Enterprise Cloud Portfolio with New Oracle Cloud Platform Services

Oracle has extended the world’s most comprehensive enterprise cloud portfolio with more than 24 new services—including Oracle Database Cloud Exadata Service and Oracle Big Data Cloud Service—to drive innovation and accelerate digital transformation. “Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud,” says Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison.

Oracle Exadata Performance, Cloud Simplicity: Introducing Oracle Database Cloud Exadata Service

Oracle Database Cloud Exadata Service brings the full power of the Oracle Exadata database platform to the cloud. With this service, customers can run Oracle databases in the cloud with the same functionality, performance, and availability of on-premises Oracle Exadata-based production databases, already in operation at thousands of mission-critical sites worldwide. Oracle databases deployed in the cloud as part of this service are 100 percent compatible with those that are deployed on premises, enabling a smooth migration to the cloud, as well as a seamless transition to a hybrid cloud strategy.

Big Data Management in Minutes: Oracle Big Data Cloud Service and Oracle Big Data SQL Cloud Service

These new services provide a high-performance, secure platform for running diverse workloads on Hadoop and NoSQL databases to help enterprises acquire and organize big data. Combined with Oracle Big Data SQL Cloud Service, Oracle Big Data Cloud Service extends Oracle’s industry-leading implementation of SQL to Hadoop and NoSQL, providing users with a comprehensive big data management system in an enterprise cloud.
