Zoom selects Oracle as a cloud infrastructure provider for its core online meeting service

Zoom selected Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for its advantages in performance, scalability, reliability, and superior cloud security. Oracle’s pioneering use of off-box network virtualization removes the “hypervisor tax” common in first-generation clouds.


Nous avons récemment connu la croissance la plus importante que notre entreprise ait jamais connue, nécessitant une augmentation importante de notre capacité de service. Nous avons exploré plusieurs plates-formes et Oracle Cloud Infrastructure a joué un rôle déterminant pour nous aider à faire évoluer rapidement notre capacité et à répondre aux besoins de nos nouveaux utilisateurs.

In April, as working from home became a global health imperative, Zoom’s daily tally of meeting participants mushroomed to 300 million, up from 10 million in December. One reason for that growth spurt was that the company, founded in 2011 with a focus on business users, had begun supporting educators and students with a free tier for K–12 schools. Zoom becoming an essential service for enterprises further boosted its usage.

Les communications vidéo sont devenues essentielles aussi bien dans notre vie professionnelle que personnelle. Or, Zoom a été à la pointe de l'innovation dans ce secteur.

In just nine hours, Oracle’s engineering team took Zoom from deployment to live production—with enough capacity to meet the surge of new users. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure initially supported hundreds of thousands of concurrent Zoom meeting participants. Within weeks, the number had grown to millions, and Zoom was able to smoothly scale to meet that need.

Already, Zoom is transferring upwards of seven petabytes (1015 bytes) through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure servers each day, roughly the same capacity in a day that would be needed to stream HD video for 93 years.
