As Oracle’s cloud business grows, we are cognizant of the constraints and challenges that many of our customers experience in transitioning to the cloud. For this reason, Oracle has built something connected and powerful—a complete, open, and secure platform that provides choice and access to innovation for all. Oracle supports all workloads, all developers, and all data types, and offers choices in deployment—public, private, and hybrid cloud. We connect all applications and business practices. Most importantly, we go beyond just migration to the cloud, and help customers architect, run, manage, and support their environments.
Our cloud spans applications, platform, and infrastructure cloud services—SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS—in addition to supporting other applications, including database as a service (DBaaS). Our cloud is portable, allowing our customers to transport applications from the cloud to on-premises instances, which reduces inefficiencies and yields cost and energy savings.
