Oracle has introduced the broadest array of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings in the industry, which include bare metal cloud servers that are 11.5X faster and 20 per cent cheaper than the fastest solution offered by the competition.

The new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, show cased at the on-going OpenWorld in San Francisco, USA, enable customers to get the best of both multi-tenant and single-tenant environments and include Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services, Oracle Ravello Cloud Service, Oracle Container Cloud Service and enhancements to existing Oracle Cloud services.

While the business benefits of the public cloud are increasingly clear, organisations face a myriad of performance, security and management concerns that mean they can’t simply abandon all of their existing IT practices and move all workloads to a multi-tenant cloud world. The latest enhancements to Oracle’s IaaS portfolio help organisations address this challenge by providing the ability to harness the benefits of Cloud while retaining many of the benefits provided by a corporate data center.

Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services are a high-scale public cloud offering and include bare metal cloud servers in a fully virtualis ed network environment. The innovative new services deliver high performance database-as-service, network block storage, object storage and VPN connectivity. In addition, Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services provide a secure, private and high-performance software defined Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) that allows customers to treat Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services as a secure and elastic extension of their on-premise network. Additionally, Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services maximise network throughput by providing direct connectivity between compute and storage nodes.

The regional deployment of Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services consists of three completely fault-independent availability domains, enabling customers to build high availability, high durability applications in the Cloud. Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services seamlessly interoperates with existing Oracle Cloud Platform offerings, helping customers build mission critical applications that take full advantage of available services on the Oracle Cloud.

Built on the foundation of the most modern datacenter, network and server infrastructure, the Oracle Bare Metal Services are designed with a fundamentally differentiated approach to Cloud platform development that gives customers choice and flexibility on their journey to the Cloud. This included ultra-dense compute servers that provide the industry’s best performance for enterprise workloads as well as the highest IOPS and the highest bandwidth storage servers available anywhere in public cloud offerings. As a result, Oracle customers can achieve 10X the throughput and IOPS of the best offering on competing Clouds, at a lower price. In addition to high performance, by not having software run on the compute hosts, Oracle is able to reduce potential points and deliver the best possible security available in Cloud.

Further extending the Oracle Cloud Platform, Oracle also announced Oracle Ravello Cloud Service, the general availability of Oracle Container Cloud Service and several significant enhancements to existing Oracle IaaS offerings.

“As more and more enterprises leverage the Cloud, they want a simple, seamless way to migrate their large and complex IT infrastructures to the Cloud, and to use the security and management controls that their IT teams already know,” said President of product Development, Oracle, Thomas Kurian, adding, “The latest additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform enable organizations to seamlessly connect their existing resources to the Oracle Cloud using Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) and select from a wide variety of computer services including bare metal, virtual machines and engineered systems as if it were a part of their own datacenter.”
