Oracle Public Cloud Brings Customers & Partners Subscription-Based Access to Oracle’s Enterprise Applications, Middleware and Database
During his keynote presentation at Oracle OpenWorld on Wednesday, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison announced the Oracle Public Cloud, a subscription-based offering that brings access to Oracle’s enterprise applications, middleware and database platforms, all managed, hosted and supported by Oracle.
The Oracle Public Cloud includes Oracle Fusion Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Cloud Service, Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud Service, Oracle Social Network, Oracle Java Cloud Service and Oracle Database Cloud Service.
The new public cloud offering also provides customers with a flexible deployment environment that enables them to deploy the same enterprise applications, including Java and Oracle Database applications, in the cloud and on-premise without rewriting them.
“The Oracle Public Cloud is a little different,” said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. “The Oracle Public Cloud is both a platform as a service and applications as a service. The key difference is the Oracle Public Cloud is based on industry standards and supports full interoperability with other clouds and your datacenter on premise.”
The solution also brings other services, including resource management and isolation, security, data exchange and integration, virus scanning, white list management, and centralized self-service monitoring, the company said. Provisioning, monitoring and managing of all services can be done via a self-service user interface.
Pricing for will be based on a monthly subscription model, and each service can be purchased individually.
Earlier in the week, Oracle unveiled new and improved database security features in just-released Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, giving customers a more efficient way to manage database security across the enterprise.
