Multicloud with OCI and Azure

Oracle’s partnership with Microsoft gives you more choices for multicloud architecture. Azure customers can now procure, deploy, and use Oracle database services running on OCI within the native Azure portal and APIs, giving them an OCI-in-Azure-like experience.

“Microsoft and Oracle just completely redefined what it means to be multicloud. In an unprecedented and truly unexpected move, Exadata and all of the Oracle Database cloud services, including the Autonomous Databases, running on OCI, are now colocated in Azure data centers. Azure users experience directly the power and benefits of Autonomous Database without any concerns of latency and ingress/egress fees. This is a game changer and walled gardens are over.”
