Oracle and Microsoft Strategic Alliance

A highly optimized and secure multicloud solution

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is known for supporting a wide array of IT workloads through high-performance compute power, autonomous services, integrated security, and much more. And with our partnership with Microsoft, organizations can fulfill even more of their IT objectives. OCI directly and securely connects with Azure for true interoperability between both platforms—a comprehensive, enterprise solution found only with OCI. It also supports critical Microsoft applications that include Microsoft SharePoint Server and Microsoft SQL Server. Both popular workloads can be deployed directly through Oracle Cloud Marketplace, with multiple versions available as supported, preconfigured images.

To simplify your deployment and testing of these workloads even further, OCI has developed reference architectures, including patterns for deploying a highly available SQL Server database. For those organizations looking for additional support with these workloads, Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN)—a customer-focused network of qualified partners—is available. Certified partners within this community offer joint expertise in deploying both Oracle and Microsoft technologies within the cloud, including SQL Server, SharePoint, and Windows Server workloads.

Powerful support for Microsoft applications

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is the ideal environment to run Microsoft applications – including Microsoft SQL Server 2019 in both Enterprise and Standard editions, SQL Server 2017 Enterprise and Standard editions, and SharePoint Server 2016 and 2019—all deployable directly from Oracle Cloud Marketplace. Demanding workloads benefit from resources such as Oracle Cloud Block Volumes—offering flexible performance up to 300K IOPS per volume—and from the isolation, scalability, and control of Oracle’ bare metal servers.
