Oracle Pitches On-Prem Cloud for Compliance-Conscious Enterprises

Add Your Comments

Oracle introduced a new way for organizations to get the benefits of on-premises deployments from Oracle Public Cloud Services on Thursday – by running them in their own data centers. Oracle Cloud at Customer is a family of offerings the company said enable enterprise workloads to be moved to the cloud despite business, regulatory, and compliance restraints.

Oracle said the service provides the agility, simplicity, performance, elastic scaling, and subscription pricing of Oracle Cloud, but in the organization’s data center. It provides a “natural path” to move critical applications from on-premises to the (actual) cloud.

The difference between Oracle Cloud at Customer and hybrid cloud computing is that Oracle is responsible for the operation and maintenance of servers in the client organization’s data center.

“We are committed to helping our customers move to the cloud to help speed their innovation, fuel their business growth, and drive business transformation,” Oracle president Thomas Kurian said in a statement. “Today’s news is unprecedented. We announced a number of new cloud services and we are now the first public cloud vendor to offer organizations the ultimate in choice on where and how they want to run their Oracle Cloud.”

The company said the 100-percent Oracle Cloud-compatible stack makes it seamless enough for disaster recovery, elastic bursting, dev/test, lift-and-shift workload migration, and DevOps with a single API and scripting toolkit.

The new service suite includes infrastructure, data management, application development (starting with Oracle Java Cloud and eventually including polyglot development in Java SE, Node.Js, Ruby, and PHP), enterprise integration, and management.

Concerns about compliance, security, and governance of corporate data are persistent barriers preventing some organizations from adopting cloud computing, and Oracle is pitching its on-premises cloud services to them.
