Oracle Cloud Native

Cloud Native services empower modern application development using technologies such as Kubernetes, Docker, serverless functions, APIs, and Kafka. Oracle provides cloud tooling and automation for these services so that development teams can reduce operational tasks and build applications faster. Cloud Native services run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure which offers higher performance and lower cost compared to Amazon Web Services. By using services based on open source and open standards, developers can run applications on any cloud or on-premises environment without refactoring—which gives them the freedom to focus on building and innovating.

Cloud Native services

Managed Kubernetes based on unmodified open source technology

Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) is an Oracle-managed container orchestration service that can reduce the time and cost to build modern cloud native applications.

  • Fully managed Kubernetes certified by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF)
  • Kubernetes Dashboard and Helm are built-in add-ons
  • Ability to quickly create clusters
  • Full REST API and CLI
  • Security (Key Management) and compliance (HIPAA, SOC2, etc.)
  • Free cluster management; pay only for the resources consumed

Secure, standards-based managed service for container images

Docker v2 API-compliant registry for storing and sharing container images. Tightly integrated with Container Engine for Kubernetes, Identity and Access Management, and third-party developer and DevOps tools.

  • Open standards-based
  • Programmatic access (API and CLI)
  • Ability to access images over private or external networks
  • Works with Visual Builder Studio and other build-automation tools
  • Easy authentication with Identity and Access Management
  • Highly durable and available through automatic replication

Serverless platform driven by events and APIs

Functions as a service (FaaS) for developers to run serverless applications that integrate with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Oracle Cloud Applications, and third-party services.

  • Powered by the open source Fn Project that runs in cloud and on-premises environments
  • Bring your own Dockerfile for advanced use cases
  • Leverage simple pricing and free allocations
  • Use with numerous services that emit Oracle Events
  • Expose functions as APIs through the API Gateway
  • Automate operations by using Functions with Notifications

Event streaming service that’s compatible with Apache Kafka

This managed-event streaming service ingests, stores, and processes real-time streaming data at scale. It reduces lock-in through full compatibility with widely used and open source Kafka APIs.

  • Serverless infrastructure automates management
  • Open, standards-based
  • Access via Console, REST API, and Apache Kafka API
  • Integrates with Object Storage, Monitoring, Functions, and Autonomous Database
  • Secure: built-in encryption and privacy
