Oracle Cloud - The Ideal Platform for VMware Workloads

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution enables enterprises to quickly migrate their VMware environments from existing data centre hardware to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure whilst retaining tooling, best practices and familiar operational practices.

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution features

Run native VMware workloads

Migrate VMware estates

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution allows customers to move VMware workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) without modification. Customers gain scale and agility while maintaining continuity with existing VMware-based tools, processes, and policies.

Innovate on your timeline

Migrate applications without making changes, then leverage OCI’s services, such as Oracle Autonomous Database or chatbots, to modernize applications.

Run production applications in the cloud

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution is built for enterprise applications supported on VMware and running on enterprise-class server processors, including applications from Oracle and other enterprise platforms.

Disaster recovery where needed

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution is deployable into all commercial (nongovernmental) Oracle Cloud Regions. Replicate or back up to any region.

VMware Cloud Verified

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution is VMware Cloud Verified. Customers can run VMware Cloud Foundation on Oracle’s next-generation cloud and retain full VMware administrative access and compatibility using VMware vCenter.

Full control of dedicated environments

Complete control over the cloud stack

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution provides customers with self-service provisioning and full administrative permissions—including root access. This provides complete control over the entire hardware and software environment.

Isolated and dedicated

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution is a single-tenant solution—perfect for customers whose workloads demand isolated infrastructure. This avoids the resource contention found in competitive, multitenant environments.

Security-first architecture

Reduce risks with Oracle Cloud's security-first architecture that uses built-in tenant isolation, zero trust access, and data encryption at rest. With no managed service security implications to consider, access is private and entirely under the customer’s control.

Use the same VMware tools

Familiar application management

VMware-based applications running on-premises can be managed using the same single, integrated view as on OCI.

No retraining required

Customers can leverage their IT team’s existing skill sets and the tools they already use on-premises—including vSphere, vCenter Server, vSAN, NSX, and HCX.

Seamless cloud migration

Extend tested and proven on-premises IT deployment architectures and processes. Configure cloud environments to match on-premises to keep them in sync.

Leverage VMware best practices

Rely on VMware best practices with native tool integration and minimize disruption during cloud migration.

Avoid costly operational changes

Avoid modifying applications

Rely on a single VMware specification that works both on-premises and in the cloud. Avoid effort spent porting applications, refactoring code, or resolving configuration differences.

Rely on native VMware tools

Use native and familiar VMware tools to manage infrastructure and migration needs to minimize organizational impact.

Leverage existing skill sets

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution is designed to work with your existing VMware skill set and tooling.

Leverage adjacent Oracle Cloud services

Containers and microservices

Customers can modernize all or parts of their application stacks with native access to Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes and Oracle Functions.

Cloud database management

Increase service levels and reduce overhead with a broad array of cloud databases such as Oracle Exadata, Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing, Oracle NoSQL Database, and more.

Business analytics and data science

Easily provide robust business analytics and data science capabilities while leveraging the latest bare metal or virtual machine (VM) GPUs.

Flexible and powerful compute

Tackle general applications with new E3 flexible shapes, which allow customers to specify the exact number of cores they want, from 1 to 64 OCPUs. Handle the highest-performance workloads with the most-powerful Intel-, AMD-, and NVIDIA-based bare metal machines available.

Networking and connectivity

Fast, reliable, and secure networking for performance-sensitive applications such as online transaction processing (OLTP), high performance computing (HPC), and real-time streaming. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect enables low-cost, private connectivity to on-premises servers, OCI regions, and other cloud providers.

Block, object, file, and NVMe storage

Storage solutions include cloud-based block, object, file, archive, and local NVMe storage. Migrate with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Data Transfer Appliance.

High-performance, elastic, and verified

Powerful bare metal hardware

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution’s bare metal compute instances provide customers with 156 cores—the highest CPU core count available for any VMware-based solution in the market today.

High-speed virtual cloud networks

Oracle virtual cloud networks (VCNs) provide customizable and private networks, just like traditional data center networks. Easily access adjacent Oracle Cloud Infrastructure cloud services from the Oracle Cloud VMware Solution environment.

Elastic capacity

Scale large VMware deployments from three nodes to the current VMware limit of 64 hosts to accommodate growth.

Designed, built, and supported by Oracle

VMware Cloud Verified and compatible with the VMware ecosystem.

Entel logo

Entel Adopts Oracle Cloud VMware Solution

“Entel migrated over 60 production applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, including our mission-critical customer engagement, business intelligence, and risk management systems. We have a strong technical team, including many VMware experts, so a managed VMware service is not helpful. We need administrative access to the VMware software so we can maintain control of every aspect of the VMware environment. Oracle Cloud VMware Solution offers my team the exact same VMware experience they had in the data center but with cloud elasticity and access to Oracle Cloud services, providing a fast, easy, and cost-effective path to migrate our VMware-based applications to the cloud. As a result, performance has increased dramatically, and downtime is close to zero.”
Helder Branco, Chief Technology Officer, Entel
