(The Hosting News) – Data management company Oracle has entered the public cloud computing arena.
The announcement was made by company CEO Larry Ellison during Oracle’s annual OpenWorld conference in San Francisco, California on Wednesday.
Specifically designed for company services, the cloud provides for Oracle Database and other Oracle services such as Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Fusion Applications.
Oracle’s services primarily relate to business solutions. Customers will be able to access the public cloud through a self-service that is subscription-based.
Commenting on the matter, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison stated, “The Oracle Public Cloud is a little different.”
“The Oracle Public Cloud is both a platform as a service and applications as a service. The key difference is the Oracle Public Cloud is based on industry standards and supports full interoperability with other clouds and your datacenter on premise,” he continued.
Other advantages of the cloud emphasized by Oracle include easy deployment, complete solutions, reliability, security, and more.
Also announced at the conference was Oracle’s social network, a platform that entails collaboration solutions for companies. For more information on the matter, please visit: http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/513460
