Isn’t Oracle Cloud Just for Large Enterprises? Can I Start Small then Expand?
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is designed for organizations of all sizes to consume services as per their needs. EBS customers can move the complete suite or part of it as per their needs. Customers can choose an environment as low as a shared virtual machine. When your organization’s needs grow, you can scale up to a full blown dedicated Bare metal, use autonomous features, or even replicate OCI Cloud in your own premises – cloud@customer.
How Does Oracle Cloud Differentiate from the Market Leaders?
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure delivers a range of capabilities not matched by AWS or Azure. These include their Gen2 Platform, a suite of Bare Metal offerings, Autonomous Database Services, and RDMA Clustered networking for HPC. Oracle’s superior networking architecture offers customers both predictable performance and isolation differentiating from competitors’ virtualized, oversubscribed platforms. Oracle Cloud also offers other cost advantages:
- Autonomous feature helps reduce the maintenance cost
- Low cost Block Storage
- Low cost Egress (network outbound cost)
- Purpose built for Enterprise applications like EBS, Peoplesoft, JD Edwards and other critical ERP systems
- Oracle’s core focus has been on making it as secure with its Security first architecture.
