Oracle President Mark Hurd Launches New Oracle Infrastructure as a Service with Capacity on Demand
In a January 2013 Webcast, Oracle President Mark Hurd and Oracle Senior Vice President of Systems Technology Juan Loaiza introduced Oracle Infrastructure as a Service (Oracle IaaS), which combines on-premise hardware with support and enhanced service offerings—for a monthly fee.
“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.
With pay-as-you-go pricing, organizations can consider the cost of Oracle IaaS hardware as an operational expense rather than a capital expense. Additionally, the cost of Oracle IaaS hardware over a three-year period is generally lower than the comparable purchase option.
Retain Full Control and Get Peak Load Capacity
Because the solution is deployed behind an organization's own firewall, Oracle IaaS customers retain all the control, visibility, and security offered by on-premise servers.
At the same time, they can take advantage of the Capacity on Demand feature, which enables them to access additional compute capacity during periods of peak workloads, such as during holidays or quarter-close periods—so customers pay for peak CPU capacity only during the months when they need it.
Platinum-Level Support at No Extra Cost
Besides extreme performance, Oracle IaaS customers also gain access to extraordinary support for high availability and performance, including Oracle Premier Support for Systems, Oracle Platinum Services, and Oracle PlatinumPlus Services at no extra cost. Oracle PlatinumPlus Services are exclusively available for Oracle IaaS.
With Oracle PlatinumPlus Services, Oracle IaaS customers get quarterly automated assessments of performance, system availability, and security compliance. This helps ensure that Oracle IaaS systems remain configured and tuned for optimal performance.
