Oracle and Microsoft announce an enhanced cloud collaboration to create the best option to run enterprise solutions for their joint customers.
This cloud interoperability partnership combines Oracle and Microsoft technologies to support both line of business and mission-critical applications. Customers can now migrate to the cloud or build new applications leveraging the best of Oracle Cloud including Oracle Autonomous Database, and the best of Microsoft Azure with seamless interoperability.

Only Oracle and Microsoft are providing a “connected cloud” technical alliance for their mutual cloud services to enable swift migration of on-premises applications, leveraging a broader range of tools, and integrated as a single unified enterprise cloud solution.
This partnership now enables many previously impossible solutions including multi-application cloud deployment and integration, multi-layered cloud data management, cross-cloud data analysis and of course rapid migration of operations to the cloud. Here are a few of the critical customer use cases:
