"Oracle is already present on other cloud platforms, has a strategic relationship with Microsoft Azure to support the running of applications in Azure with Oracle Database instances running in OCI, and may be able to offer the best method of realizing a customer's multicloud strategy."    —Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, IDC

Connect and manage multicloud environments

Oracle Database Service for Azure

Oracle Database Service for Azure is an Oracle-managed multicloud service that enables customers to easily setup and use high-performance, scalable Oracle databases running on OCI for their Azure applications. Azure customers can easily deploy Oracle Database running on OCI through the Oracle Database Service for Azure portal using a streamlined experience for establishing low latency OCI-Azure connectivity, virtual networks, and federated identity management. Database logs and metrics from OCI integrate into Azure to simplify monitoring and management. Customers can initiate support requests for the environment through either Microsoft or Oracle.

Maximizing the value of multicloud architectures

Multicloud architectures allow organizations to leverage the best services from each cloud to deploy and consistently manage workloads across clouds. By linking applications running in different clouds or distributing application stacks across clouds, customers in all industries can achieve competitive advantages, with better capabilities, higher performance, enhanced disaster mitigation, and lower costs.

According to a Gartner survey, 81% of respondents confirmed their adoption of a multicloud strategy. Oracle Cloud offers a comprehensive set of multicloud capabilities, including high-performance databases, high performance computing (HPC), and Oracle Fusion SaaS applications, that allow customers to develop applications faster and get the most out of their investments.


Clearly, the establishment of this service by Oracle and Microsoft delivers a level of integration that their joint customers need. The linked OCI plus Azure environment goes beyond simple interoperability to establish a high-performance interconnected cloud world.

Oracle’s interconnect solution with Microsoft Azure

Using Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure Interconnect allows customers to migrate workloads to the cloud or build new applications that leverage the best of OCI and Azure. Customers can quickly migrate on-premises applications, leverage a broader range of tools, and integrate their OCI and Azure implementations as a single, unified enterprise cloud solution.

Customers can also move interdependent enterprise applications to the cloud, deploy custom and packaged applications across OCI and Azure, and develop cloud native applications in both cloud environments. Most importantly, customers can migrate on-premises applications to the cloud while preserving application architectures, taking advantage of high-performance Oracle Autonomous Database and Exadata Database optimizations and maintaining interoperability across deployments.

Pricing for the Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure Interconnect is based solely on the capacity of the ports provisioned on OCI FastConnect and Azure ExpressRoute Local Circuit. There are no additional charges for inbound or outbound bandwidth consumed.

The interconnect provides an innovative value proposition for customers of Oracle and Microsoft technologies. The solution enables customers to get the best of both worlds by running workloads on both Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Microsoft Azure.

Private, high bandwidth multicloud connectivity

Oracle FastConnect allows organizations to create multicloud environments with high bandwidth network pathways to any cloud provider. Distributed workloads with applications and databases running on OCI, AWS, or Google Cloud allow customers to combine the capability, performance, and cost advantages available from multiple cloud providers.

Customers can also use FastConnect to link on-premises private clouds directly to their OCI virtual cloud network via dedicated private, high bandwidth connections. Based on their data volume, customers simply choose an appropriate port speed and pay a consistent low price each month.

More than fifty FastConnect partners—including Equinix, Megaport, AT&T Business, BT, and Verizon—allow customers to deploy multicloud environments anywhere they’re needed.

Multicloud integration for applications and data systems

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure integration services connect any application and data source to automate and manage end-to-end processes across clouds and on-premises environments. Digital-first engagement with customers and employees has highlighted the challenges of fragmented integration approaches for quickly implementing, changing, and upgrading your business systems.

According to a McKinsey survey, C-level executives and senior managers are three times likelier now than before the pandemic to say that at least 80 percent of their customer interactions are digital in nature.1 But in related McKinsey research, just 16 percent of executives say their company’s digital transformations are succeeding.2 These studies show the importance of having a modern, multicloud integration platform to improve customer and employee experiences while accelerating digital transformation.

Multicloud visibility for infrastructure and applications

Oracle Cloud Observability and Management Platform provides integrated cloud capabilities to monitor and manage multicloud and on-premises environments.

A persistent problem in a multicloud environment is how to detect, diagnose, and remediate issues before users are impacted. Traditional monitoring tools aren’t equipped to address these challenges.

According to an IDC survey, 77%1 of the IT and LOB 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.
