Why Customers are Choosing OCI

Oracle Cloud is the first public cloud built from the ground up to be a better cloud for every application. By rethinking core engineering and systems design for cloud computing, we created innovations that solve problems that customers have with existing public clouds. We accelerate migrations of existing enterprise workloads, deliver better reliability and performance for all applications, and offer the complete services customers need to build innovative cloud applications. There are six key reasons customers are choosing Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) for all their cloud workloads.

Learn why Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a leader and suitable for all your workloads.

1. Far easier to migrate critical enterprise workloads

Many enterprise applications are challenging to move to the cloud, as most hyperscale cloud providers were architected on a virtual machine model with resources shared through the compute hypervisor and oversubscribed networks. This older cloud computing architecture makes it difficult for enterprise applications to run at the expected levels of performance and availability without typically significant modification, which adds complexity and risk. Enterprise applications and other performance-sensitive on-premises applications were designed to run best on: scale-up architectures for resource scaling (not scale-out); ultra-low latency networks; persistent connections to relational databases; and clustering of resources for availability. OCI was designed with key cloud technologies to address the requirements of enterprise applications.

2. Everything you need to build modern cloud native applications

While OCI is designed to be better for enterprise applications, the same innovations in networking, compute, and storage make cloud native applications more performant, resilient, and scalable. OCI has the broad cloud services and partner ecosystem you need to build production cloud native apps.

OCI is designed to be a better cloud for your entire development toolchain with support for cloud services from an array of partnerships.

3. Autonomous services automatically secure, tune, and scale your apps

Autonomous services are designed to automate the patching and performance tuning of the operating system and the database. Misconfiguration and poor optimization can rob an application of its performance, and misapplied security patches can introduce vulnerabilities into the system. Autonomous services are designed to reduce risk and cost of human error by:

Automating provisioning of new databases and compute instances

Automating configuration of user access

Automating encryption of services

Automating online patching and updating

Automating resource scaling as demand changes

Automating performance tuning

Oracle Autonomous Services

Oracle applies this automation, and additional workload-specific optimization, with the Autonomous Database across key database use cases including data warehousing, transaction processing, and document databases. Oracle also fully automates the operating system with Autonomous Linux, which automatically performs patches and updates while the system is running, ensuring 99.995% availability.

Customers who rely on autonomous services

4. Oracle Cloud provides the most support for hybrid cloud strategies

We designed the architecture of Oracle Cloud to support a wide range of deployment options for customers. Customers can run an entire OCI region from within their data center, move entire on-premises VMware environments to public cloud regions, or deliver OCI services like Exadata and Roving Edge right to the site of the work needed. Oracle also has a unique interconnection with Microsoft Azure to provide low-latency, unified identity, multicloud services in 12 regions around the world. Whether customers have already chosen a primary cloud provider, or are earlier in their cloud adoption, they can modernize their business with the control, performance, and value of OCI's range of hybrid choices.

5. Our approach to security—built in, on by default, at no extra charge

When building the next-generation cloud, we didn’t just improve the architecture, but also improved key attributes such as security. In most public clouds, apps are built, then as they become larger and more functional, security is bolted on to the application and the services that run it. Every application you want to secure requires a host of different services, often with different pricing per service. At OCI, we’ve designed security into the core experience from the start of your application build or migration, and we’ve made most of our security tooling free as part of your environment.

Oracle Cloud compliance

Oracle has an extensive cloud compliance program designed to help customers operate globally in a complex and rapidly changing business and regulatory environment. Oracle manages more than 80 global, regional, and industry-specific programs to provide third-party attestations like SOC, ISO, HIPAA, and FedRAMP, and advisories for standards like GxP, NIST, GDPR and FISC. Data privacy regulations vary from region to region, and OCI actively maintains programs to comply with standards such as PCI-DSS. OCI further protects privacy by providing services that are region-specific by default, with additional privacy features, as well as published data processing standards and regular reporting of law enforcement requests.

6. OCI offers superior price-performance

In designing Oracle Cloud, we wanted a cloud that performed better for every application, but also had better price-performance. To do this, we made our pricing globally consistent, where the cost for a compute or storage service is consistently low across all regions to simplify adoption. We made our pricing competitive without requiring customers to make significant, multiyear commitments. We designed core cloud capabilities, such as security and container management, to be included in the cost of compute, not as an add-on charge. We built better performing networks, but also priced the movement of data out of the cloud in recognition of how our customers are building multicloud networks to serve their customers.

Beyond service pricing, we're continually making it easier to work with Oracle Cloud. We've backed our services with the most comprehensive SLAs, where we financially guarantee not only availability, but also the performance of our network and storage services as well as your ability to manage services through APIs at all times. To simplify migration, we include the design, planning, and migration of your workloads into the cloud at no extra cost, through our Cloud Lift program. Finally, we can reduce your software license support costs by 25 to 33 percent as you scale your OCI usage through Oracle Support Rewards.

The benefits add up. Let’s say you're moving a custom application to OCI. You can opt for lower Bring Your Own License pricing for Oracle Database in the cloud, get no-cost engineering support to move your application, and reduce your overall costs through volume OCI discounts and by earning Support Rewards.
