Oracle President Mark Hurd Introduces Oracle Infrastructure as a Service

In a recent Webcast, Oracle President Mark Hurd and Oracle Senior Vice President of Systems Technology Juan Loaiza introduced Oracle Infrastructure as a Service (Oracle IaaS). Oracle IaaS combines on-premise hardware with support and enhanced service offerings for a monthly fee.

Oracle IaaS with Capacity on Demand delivers Oracle engineered systems hardware and hardware support for a monthly fee, with no upfront capital expenditures. Oracle IaaS provides organizations with full control, visibility, and security of on-premise servers, deployed behind their own firewalls. Oracle IaaS also includes the Capacity on Demand feature, which enables businesses to access and pay for elastic compute capacity to handle periods of peak workloads, such as during holidays or quarter-close. With pay-as-you-go pricing, the cost of Oracle IaaS hardware can be considered an operational expense rather than as a capital expense. Over a three-year period, the cost of Oracle IaaS hardware is generally lower than the comparable purchase option. In addition, when customers choose the extreme performance of an Oracle IaaS solution they also gain access to extraordinary support for high availability and performance, including Oracle PlatinumPlus Services, exclusively available for Oracle IaaS at no extra cost.

“For the first time, customers can get the unmatched performance, scalability, and reliability of Oracle engineered systems deployed on premise, behind their firewall, for a monthly fee,” says Loaiza. “Oracle Infrastructure as a Service with elastic compute Capacity on Demand makes it possible for customers to use and pay for peak processing power only when they need it, and get the highest level of support with the new Oracle PlatinumPlus Services.”
