Compute Cloud@Customer features

Scalable compute

  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Compute with flexible virtual machine (VM) shapes reduces total consumption when consolidating applications and middleware.
  • High performance VM shapes with up to 96 cores each make it easy to run compute-intensive applications.
  • 552 cores of available compute capacity with 6.7 TB of available memory that can be incrementally expanded to 6,624 cores and 80.4 TB of memory supports multiple large and growing workloads.
  • Pay consumption costs only on the number of compute cores used to reduce costs.
  • The ability to run guest operating systems, including Oracle Linux, Oracle Solaris, third-party Linux, and Microsoft Windows Server, lets customers use a single platform for all their workloads.
  • Oracle Linux licensing and support included with the subscription eliminates hidden costs.

Flexible storage

  • OCI object, block, and file storage services with any mix of consumption support all types of workloads.
  • 150 TB of storage capacity that is incrementally expandable to 3.65 PB meets the needs of data-intensive workloads.
  • Optional flash storage scales up to 1.2 PB of block storage capacity to meet the needs of I/O-intensive workloads.
  • Storage and compute scale independently to make it easy to optimize performance and costs for diverse workloads.
  • Pay consumption costs only for the amount of storage used instead of the amount installed to reduce costs.

Built-in networking

  • The OCI Flexible Network Load Balancer service efficiently distributes network traffic across servers.
  • OCI virtual cloud networks (VCNs), subnets, security lists, route tables, and other networking capabilities are included to simplify deployment.
  • Up to 800 Gb/sec of data center connectivity speeds access to data center resources.
  • Up to 800 Gb/sec of dedicated, direct connect bandwidth to Exadata Cloud@Customer minimizes database access latency and data center network contention.
  • Dedicated 400 Gb/sec of internal network bandwidth increases performance for all applications.

Support for diverse applications

  • Existing Oracle packaged applications, third-party applications, and customer enterprise applications run at scale.
  • Optimized support for cloud native applications increases operating efficiency.
  • Database-intensive workloads run with high performance by using Compute Cloud@Customer for application and middleware tiers and Exadata Cloud@Customer for the database tier.
  • Comprehensive application support lets customers consolidate diverse workloads on the same infrastructure, reducing IT complexity and cost.
  • Terraform support enables infrastructure as code for maximum application portability across Oracle’s distributed cloud.

Consistent management

  • The infrastructure is fully managed and supported by Oracle so scarce IT resources can focus on meeting crucial business needs.
  • The same OCI control plane and APIs as other Oracle distributed cloud platforms provide a consistent user and management experience.
  • Oracle Operator Access Control gives customers oversight and control over the actions of Oracle operators, increasing security.
  • Applications and services continue to run even when disconnected from the OCI control plane host region.

Low cost

  • Low consumption pricing based on usage and affordable infrastucture subscriptions provide significant savings.
  • Consistent worldwide pricing provides predictable costs.
  • Enterprise support is included at no additional cost.
  • Consumption is paid for using the same flexible Universal Credits as OCI, making it simpler to run distributed workloads with variable demands.

Container Automation

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) is a managed Kubernetes service that simplifies the operations of enterprise-grade Kubernetes at scale. It lets you deploy Kubernetes clusters and support reliable operations for both the control plane and the worker nodes with automatic scaling, patching, and security updates. OKE on Compute Cloud@Customer brings basic cluster capabilities on-premises, reducing overall utilization and delivering modernization, consolidation, and lower total cost of ownership.
