Oracle recently announced significant expansion of the breadth of services available through its on-premises Oracle Cloud at Customer where the portfolio now spans all of the major Oracle PaaS applications and for the first time, also features Oracle SaaS services.
As part of the portfolio, Oracle fully manages and maintains the cloud infrastructure at customers’ premises so that customers can focus on using the IaaS, PaaS and SaaS services.
With the expansion, customers now have access to all of Oracle’s major PaaS categories, including Database, Application Development, Analytics, Big Data, Application and Data Integration, and Identity Management.
For the first time, Oracle has also made available via Oracle Cloud at Customer, the ability to consume Oracle SaaS services such as Enterprise Resource Planning, Human Capital Management, Customer Relationship Management, and Supply Chain Management in their own datacenters.
With the addition of SaaS services to Oracle Cloud at Customer, customers have access to Oracle Cloud services across the entire cloud stack, all delivered in a subscription-based, managed model, directly in their datacenters, said Oracle.
Also, newly available is the Oracle Big Data Cloud Machine, which is an optimized system delivering a production-grade Hadoop and Spark platform with the power of dedicated nodes and the flexibility and simplicity of a cloud offering. Organizations can now access a full range of Hadoop, Spark, and analytics tools on a simple subscription model in their own data centers.
Since its introduction just over a year ago, Oracle claims the Cloud at Customer has experienced unprecedented growth. Just two months ago, AT&T signed an agreement to move thousands of its large scale internal databases to Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).
