Oracle will now have autonomous cloud offerings
Oracle to the market: We are Cloud 2.0
Last October, Oracle made an announcement regarding the Autonomous Database Cloud, which is powered by Oracle Database.
Oracle’s cloud platform is a series of infrastructures as “IaaS (Infrastructure as a service) is incorporated into its platforms as PaaS (Platform as a service); SaaS (Software as a service) includes the infrastructure and API’s of IaaS along with the middleware and database of PaaS.”
This platform redefines how you innovate, modernize, and compete in a digital world.
Meanwhile, other automated services are also being added regularly to enhance the specific functions provided by Oracle’s PaaS application development, analytics and security, applications and data integration services.
Another significant thing that Oracle promises is that it will do all the maintenance to the cloud-based enterprise, and updates, patches, tuning will be delivered automatically.
Oracle cloud’s strategy is also focused on growing and maintaining engagements with the existing companies, especially the large-sized enterprises.
The main aim of the company is to provide autonomous capabilities that will eliminate the human labor associated with backup, recovery, and automation.
According to Thomas Kurian, president of product development at Oracle, “We are weaving autonomous capabilities into the fabric of our cloud to help customers safeguard their systems, drive innovation faster, and deliver the ultimate competitive advantage with smarter real-time decisions,”
Oracle is currently using Artificial Intelligence techniques like machine learning to enable various services in its Cloud Platform for installing patches, optimizing workloads, and self-maintenance.
From its announcement, we can assume that Oracle is now looking to boost its cloud revenue in a market, where it is going to trail Amazon Web Services, IBM, and Microsoft.
Since November 2017, Oracle’s total cloud revenue jumped from 44% to $1.5 billion.
Moreover, Oracle has not restricted its public cloud platform. It has a marketplace that features a number of services based on the open source technologies like Kafka and Kubernetes. Nonetheless, Oracle’s process has also been working to optimize its cloud as the most economical place to run their software.
Oracle has also stated that it would be opening its 12 new data center regions locations in Asia and the Middle East including China, Japan, India, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, and Singapore. The locations in Europe include data centers in Switzerland and Netherlands and North America locations include two in United Stated and two in Canada to support the department of defense workloads.
