Why the top Builders run on Oracle Cloud

Technology product providers and independent software vendors (ISVs) need cloud partners who deliver great price-performance, along with security, flexibility, and predictable costs. Whether your applications were born in the cloud or built from decades of industry expertise, Oracle Cloud offers the benefits of a complete, full-stack offering with the best performance at a market-leading price. Oracle Cloud has built-in security and automation that allows ISVs to scale faster and deliver a better user experience to all of your customers.

Explore what OCI has to offer to our cloud partners

ISVs deliver better value to their customers with OCI’s wide range of services and support.

Oracle Cloud Lift Services

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offers the opportunity to migrate or build your applications with minimal rearchitecture or reintegration, and delivers higher performance at lower cost than deployments running on-premises or on competitors’ clouds. OCI includes all the core infrastructure and platform-as-a-service options to meet key application needs. And with Oracle Lift Services, you can obtain free expert guidance from cloud engineers on planning, architecting, prototyping, and managing cloud migrations.

Move critical workloads in weeks (or even days) with

Dedicated engineering resources

Oracle Cloud Lift dedicates its top engineers to quickly migrate eligible customer workloads to Oracle Cloud, enabling customers to derive value from OCI investments.

Support from planning through go-live

A dedicated group of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure experts will assist you from inception through go-live activities, including assessment, designing and prototyping, migration, and management to accelerate your time to value.

Program access is included with tenancy

The Oracle Cloud Lift program includes available services globally and is a part of the customer’s tenancy on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Simplify management with autonomous services

Eliminate human error and complexity with the world's only autonomous cloud. OCI offers autonomous operations while delivering truly elastic and serverless services—available globally both in the public cloud and your data centers.

Price-performance advantage

As an ISV, you need predictable costs to plan your budgets and run your business. Running workloads in the cloud can make it extremely difficult to accurately forecast cost over time—but not with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

OCI delivers higher performance and lower costs for virtually every enterprise software application, and is consistently less expensive than AWS for a wide range of popular cloud workloads. Oracle has simple rate structures that eliminate the cost surprises associated with hard-to-estimate usage elements such as data egress or storage performance. And with 29 public cloud regions across the globe, Oracle charges the same rates for all regions, so going global on Oracle Cloud doesn’t increase the cost of service.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Service Level Agreement (SLA)

Oracle’s SLAs are built on the foundation of availability, manageability, and performance.


Rest assured your cloud workloads are in continual operation with Oracle's commitments to uptime and connectivity.


The elasticity and configurability of infrastructure is part of why businesses move applications to the cloud. Your services need to be manageable all of the time to deliver this benefit. Oracle provides manageability SLAs to ensure your ability to manage, monitor, and modify resources.


It’s not enough for your cloud infrastructure to be merely accessible. It should consistently perform the way you expect it to. Oracle is the first cloud vendor to guarantee performance, so you can rely on your infrastructure to run your business.

Built-in security

At Oracle, we take a very different approach to security than other cloud providers. We believe security should always be on, should default to maximum settings, and shouldn’t be prohibitively expensive. We believe a major reason companies’ systems are breached is because their security is so complex and often added to workloads after they start to scale, rather than designed in.

With OCI, we focused on simplifying the security experience. So you get the security you need without deploying overlapping tools and making a lot of separate decisions.

Benefits of Oracle Autonomous Database

What is an autonomous database? Oracle Autonomous Database is a family of self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing cloud services. It’s the world’s first autonomous database, and it redefines database management by using machine learning and automation to eliminate human labor, human error, and manual tuning—reducing cost and complexity and ensuring higher reliability, security, and more operational efficiency.

Speed time to market

Complete automation of database and infrastructure operations cuts administrative costs by up to 80 percent. The efficiency of a self-optimizing database, together with elastic pay-per-use, cuts runtime costs by up to 90 percent.

Eliminate vulnerabilities

Automatic application of the latest security updates with no downtime eliminates cyberattack vulnerabilities. You get protection from all types of downtime, including system failures, maintenance, user errors, and changes to the application data model.

Administrate less

Eliminating database maintenance frees database administrators and app developers to add more value to the business. Integrated machine learning algorithms enable the development of applications that perform real-time predictions such as personalized shopping and fraud detection.

Maximize flexibility

Customers are empowered to deploy workloads using Autonomous Database in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure or on-premises with Exadata Cloud@Customer, based on their data residency, regulatory, and latency requirements.

Cloud deployment flexibility

We have an open ecosystem which includes support for non-Oracle technologies and flexible deployment models. We want to help our customers avoid vendor lock-in by allowing deployment through Oracle Cloud, Cloud@Customer, other clouds, hybrid environments, and on-premises.

With Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer, Oracle brings its complete portfolio of public cloud services and Oracle Fusion SaaS applications into your data center.

Deployment flexibility extends to infrastructure with Oracle Linux—the open, scalable, and secure operating environment that runs Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Customers also run Oracle Linux in all the environments listed above, providing optimal choice. Learn about ISV applications certified on Oracle Linux; they run wherever Oracle Linux runs. If you’re an ISV and want to certify your application, please let us know.

Go to market with Oracle

We have a large and growing base of Oracle Cloud and Oracle SaaS customers, as well as a large global data center footprint. With more than 200,000 Oracle SaaS customers, 80 million daily users, and 61 billion daily transactions, we want to help you expand your market.
