More companies are adopting a hybrid environment to strategically meet their application and infrastructure demands.
As enterprises increasingly adopt cloud computing in their digital transformation journeys, multicloud and hybrid cloud infrastructures are becoming ubiquitous.
Hybrid cloud architecture uses both a public cloud provider, such as OCI, and on-premises infrastructure to meet enterprise IT needs. This approach provides the flexibility to move some workloads to the public cloud while retaining others on-premises.
According to industry analyst IDC, “major developments and future growth are tied to the enablement of hybrid environments.” This architecture is gaining importance as certain workloads cannot be moved to public cloud data centers for reasons that include data residency, network latency, and infrastructure performance. Oracle Cloud@Customer is the only offering among public cloud vendors that brings the complete portfolio of more than 100 cloud services into customer data centers, enabling hybrid cloud architectures.
Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer combines the benefits of the public cloud with customer data centers. OCI delivers the same fully featured, self-service, high-performance Exadata Database Service and Oracle Autonomous Database on-premises that we offer in our public cloud, with the added benefit of globally available cloud-based management. Automate scaling, tuning, provisioning, patching, and fault management with Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer.
Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer delivers all OCI services and Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications inside the customer’s own data centers. All these services and applications help you to not only augment your journey to the cloud, but also do so from the comfort of your own data centers.
Many large-scale data center users have been working through plans for cloud migration but struggle to move gradually, keeping processing on-premises and moving applications and data in a stepwise manner to the cloud. Exadata Cloud@Customer and Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer overcome this issue by, in effect, bringing the cloud to the customer.

Using Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer is a completely managed cloud region that brings all of Oracle’s second-generation public cloud services and Oracle Fusion SaaS applications into your data center and runs these without data residency concerns. The solution enables autonomous operations that not only eliminate human error but also maximize the security of your data.
Oracle Dedicated Region can be used with OCI’s public cloud services for hybrid cloud deployments and can be interconnected with other cloud providers. With Oracle Dedicated Region, customers can increase agility and innovation by accessing new cloud services on-premises as soon as Oracle makes them available in public cloud regions—all while lowering costs with OCI’s leading price-performance. Further, you can leverage the exact same SLAs, APIs, and tools available in Oracle’s public cloud and experience low-latency interaction with your on-premises applications and databases.
Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure accelerates deployment of cloud workloads outside the data center. Ruggedized Oracle Roving Edge Devices (Oracle REDs) deliver cloud computing and storage services at the edge of networks and in disconnected locations, allowing faster processing close to the data source and enabling faster insights into the data.
Existing OCI virtual machines (VMs) and object storage can be synchronized to Oracle Roving Edge devices using the same portal and tenancy tooling as our public regions. Roving Edge Devices can be used for fast data collection and processing in the field, application deployment to remote facilities, development/testing in the cloud and deployment to the edge, and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) at the edge.
Oracle Cloud VMware Solution is the ideal platform for strong security, predictability, and control. Run VMWare workloads natively on Oracle Cloud without having to modify then. Reduce risks with Oracle Cloud's security-first architecture that utilizes built-in tenant isolation, least privilege access, and data encryption at rest. With Oracle Cloud VMware Solution, there are no “managed service” security implications to consider, and access is private and entirely under your control, with predictable performance and costs. Customers also manage cloud infrastructure and VMware consoles for complete administrative control of the VMware environment, with the elasticity of the cloud, and is available in multiple regions around the world.
Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer combines the performance of Oracle Exadata with the simplicity, flexibility, and affordability of a managed database service in your data centers. It’s the simplest way to move your existing Oracle databases to the cloud, providing full compatibility with your existing Exadata systems and Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service.
The solution can be used with OCI’s public cloud services for hybrid cloud deployments and can be interconnected with other cloud providers. Exadata Cloud@Customer enables you to meet the data residency and low-latency requirements of existing data center resources while achieving higher database consolidation and scaling that isn’t possible on-premises.
Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer combines all the benefits of having Oracle Exadata in your data center with the simplicity of an autonomous cloud service. It helps you meet strict data residency and security requirements and eliminate many manual database and infrastructure management tasks while supporting on-premises enterprise applications with high Exadata performance.
The solution can be used with OCI’s public cloud services for hybrid cloud deployments and can be interconnected with other cloud providers. Oracle Autonomous Database enables you to consolidate databases with autonomous operations and build a modern enterprise data warehouse without the challenge and cost of moving your on-premises data. IT teams benefit from machine learning–based automation of provisioning, configuring, and tuning—reducing management costs and eliminating downtime with automated error detection, correction, and patching.
Oracle Cloud Observability and Management Platform provides integrated cloud capabilities to monitor and manage hybrid cloud and multicloud environments.
According to an IDC survey, 77% of the IT and line-of-business decision-makers recently polled worldwide indicate they somewhat or strongly agree that comprehensive end user visibility and observability analytics are critical to optimizing digital infrastructures.
A persistent problem in a hybrid cloud environment is how to detect, diagnose, and remediate issues before users are impacted. Traditional monitoring tools aren’t equipped to address these challenges.
With capabilities for infrastructure monitoring, application performance monitoring, logging, log analytics, database management, and infrastructure as code, IT operators can get full-stack visibility, prebuilt analytics, and automation for hybrid cloud environments.
