Capabilities enable cloud native and Java developers to cost-efficiently build highly responsive applicationsOracle CloudWorld, Las Vegas—September 20, 2023
Oracle today announced new application development capabilities to enable developers to rapidly build and deploy applications on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Designed for cloud native and Java developers, the new capabilities will help developers build highly responsive and efficient cloud native applications while reducing costs. In addition, Oracle is building generative AI capabilities for application development to take advantage of cutting-edge large language models with the level of security and privacy that enterprises demand.
“Today we are announcing several new capabilities across our cloud native and Java portfolios that will enable developers to simplify and accelerate the development, deployment, and management of applications while reducing costs,” said Mahesh Thiagarajan, executive vice president, Security and Developer Platforms, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “In addition, with our upcoming new generative AI services, Oracle will help developers further leverage the latest technologies to help drive business growth.”
Oracle is introducing several new capabilities for Java developers:
Oracle is also introducing new capabilities to help developers simplify cloud native deployments, Kubernetes operations, and enhanced security while saving costs:
The above innovations are in addition to recent significant releases that make Kubernetes operations simpler and more secure:
“With Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes, we’re able to quickly expand agentless scanning of workloads on OCI, which allows us to focus on delivering value to our OCI customers and fuel our continued rapid growth, rather than spend resources on infrastructure management,” said Oron Noah, director of product management, Wiz.
In addition, Oracle is building generative AI capabilities for application development that are powered by NVIDIA GPUs. The capabilities will be designed to help ensure security and privacy while delivering predictable performance. Developers will gain access to the foundational models that enables them to tune and customize in a secure manner, hosting the models in Oracle’s AI infrastructure—all the way up to OCI Supercluster scale—and exposing them via endpoints. Developers will then be able to leverage these tuned and customized models to embed generative AI in their own applications. Developers will also have access to out of the box assistance for developer use cases such as test generation, code translation, code generation, code refactoring, and code summarization.
“At Cohere, we are building generative AI models that will act as an extension of the developer, allowing them to maintain their unique coding styles while helping them develop more efficient code,” said Saurabh Baji, senior vice president, engineering, Cohere. “We are very excited to work with OCI to build foundational models that address a wide range of developer use-cases.”
Java 21, Arm support for all runtimes, and Graal Cloud Native 4.0 are available now. OCI Functions Powered by GraalOS and Oracle Cloud Guard Container Governance will be available soon.
