Oracle expands cloud services into PaaS and SaaS.
Oracle recently expanded its cloud services through the Oracle Cloud at Customer platform. The platform now effectively covers all of the company’s major PaaS categories, while also featuring its SaaS services.
“Oracle Cloud at Customer is a direct response to the remaining barriers to cloud adoption and turning those obstacles into opportunities by letting customers choose the location of their cloud services,” Thomas Kurian, President, Product Development, Oracle said. “We are providing a unique service that enables our customers to leverage Oracle Cloud services, including SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS, both on their premises and in our cloud. Customers gain all the benefits of Oracle’s robust cloud offerings, in their own datacenters, all managed and supported by Oracle.”
Oracle Cloud at Customer is designed for organizations to remove data privacy concerns related to the location of their data storage: an obstacle that has long plagued major organizations looking to make the shift into cloud storage.
“Oracle Cloud at Customer is a modern cloud infrastructure platform based on converged Oracle hardware, software-defined storage and networking and a first-class IaaS abstraction. Oracle fully manages and maintains the infrastructure at customers’ premises so that customers can focus on using the IaaS, PaaS and SaaS services. This is the same cloud infrastructure platform that powers the Oracle Cloud globally.”
