Available today, the new capabilities in Oracle Database Cloud deliver:
“Only Oracle’s cloud technology frees us entirely from licensing, configuring, and managing our business-critical database and application server environment,” said Zaki Sabbagh, CIO, Zamil Industrial Investment Group. “With Oracle, we did not need to modify anything in our databases in order to migrate to the cloud. As a result, we gained the ability to implement new business requirements for critical applications immediately—which is a major competitive advantage.”
The Oracle Database Cloud offers a broad portfolio of services that meet the capacity and service level needs of developers, small businesses and global enterprises. Databases can be provisioned in minutes, offering complete compatibility with on-premises databases and built-in security with end-to-end data encryption.

As a result, IT can greatly improve agility and reduce costs.
“As a reseller of Oracle technologies and cloud services, it’s critical for us to support a wide spectrum of businesses requirements,” said James Anthony, CTO, Red Stack Tech. “We support customers who are looking for enterprise-grade database solutions that deliver extreme performance and availability, as well as those who are interested in a schema service or a database backup service. We're very pleased that Oracle has taken the lead by providing a comprehensive set of database cloud services that support the variety of use cases we see in our customer environments—from development and testing to business-critical workloads for private, public and hybrid clouds.”
