Cloud Native

Oracle Cloud Native services and software help developers build applications using technologies such as Kubernetes, containers, serverless functions, API management and GraalVM for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), hybrid cloud, and multicloud environments.

With these cloud native products, developers can reduce time spent on operational tasks, such as managing Kubernetes clusters, and build applications faster. OCI cloud native offerings ensure deployed applications are more portable and can run on OCI, third-party cloud, and on-premises environments with minimal modification. Complementary OCI AI Services bring pretrained models allowing developers to quickly implement solutions like Oracle Digital Assistant and OCI Anomaly Detection with minimal machine learning knowledge.

Why custom applications are moving to cloud native

Justin Smith, Group Marketing Manager, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Application developers are increasingly challenged with business requests that require new or enhanced custom applications. An International Data Corporation (IDC) survey data shows that 75% of developers at large organizations collaborate on 26–500 applications over the course of a year. As app development, deployment, and business priorities continue, developers are progressively utilizing cloud native application development methods to enable faster time to market through DevOps, more portable and easily updated architecture, less technology lock-in, and tapping into managed and automated services.
