Oracle Continues Oracle Cloud Expansion with New Oracle Database Backup Service and Oracle Storage Cloud Service

In April 2014, Oracle announced two new cloud offerings designed to help organizations more easily and rapidly adopt hybrid cloud solutions: Oracle Database Backup Cloud Service and Oracle Storage Cloud Service.

These new offerings come as the adoption of cloud computing continues to accelerate. Often, such adoptions require the migration of existing on-premises workloads to the public cloud—plus ongoing portability between on-premises and cloud environments. Both new offerings help achieve these goals with unprecedented speed and simplicity.

"Once again, Oracle has expanded its comprehensive set of enterprise-grade infrastructure cloud services with these new services. They are based on open standards, integrated to work together seamlessly, and designed to support full portability between on-premises and cloud environments," says Chris Pinkham, senior vice president, product development, Oracle.

Oracle Database Backup Service
Part of the Oracle Cloud platform-as-a-service (PaaS) portfolio, Oracle Database Backup Cloud Service provides a simple, scalable, and low-cost Oracle Database cloud backup solution—one that can serve as an integral part in a multitier database backup and recovery strategy.

The new offering is tightly integrated with Oracle Recovery Manager (Oracle RMAN), so customers can continue using the familiar Oracle RMAN commands in order to perform backup and recovery operations between on-premises Oracle Databases and Oracle Cloud.

To help maximize performance, customers can parallelize and compress backup data transfers to the cloud. At the same time, client-side encryption provides end-to-end data security.

Oracle Storage Cloud Service
Part of the Oracle Cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) portfolio, Oracle Storage Cloud Service provides a comprehensive object storage solution for storing and managing digital information such as data backups and archives with a high degree of reliability and security, while lowering both capital and operational costs.

Oracle Storage Cloud Service provides access to data from any environment connected to the internet through an OpenStack Swift-compatible application programming interface (API), Java APIs, and RESTful web services.
