A recent press release reports, “Continuing its Oracle Cloud Platform innovation, Oracle today announced major enhancements that make it easier for organizations to move enterprise database applications to the cloud. Oracle now offers Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), Oracle FastConnect private networking capabilities, and Microsoft Windows Server support for Oracle’s high performance next generation IaaS. These offerings enable a new range of customers to deploy and access Oracle Database applications in the cloud with performance and availability on par or exceeding on-premises, and demonstrate performance of up to 20 times faster on benchmark tests compared with Oracle running on a competitor’s cloud.”
The release continues, “Oracle is the only cloud vendor to provide customers with complete and highly available enterprise application environments in the cloud. With this announcement, Oracle is delivering unique, integrated platform services to mid-sized and large enterprises that don’t have the expertise or capital to maintain comparable systems on-premises. Customers can now use Oracle’s next generation IaaS to deploy applications based on Microsoft Windows, Oracle Linux, and other Linux distributions, and scale to millions of operations per second, connect to Oracle RAC Databases on bare metal servers that support hundreds of thousands of transactions per second, and use Oracle FastConnect to connect these applications to on-premises networks at costs as low as one-twentieth of a competitor’s comparable offerings for high bandwidth users.** Customers can either use all the services and pay an hourly charge, or purchase a subscription for consistent billing.”
