Oracle Cloud Infrastructure


Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is a platform of cloud services that enable you to build and run a wide range of applications in a highly-available, consistently high-performance environment. This paper showcases how OCI is designed to help companies run their entire application portfolio, especially their mission critical workloads, in the cloud. Customers are growing new lines of business, improving their user experiences, speeding their operations, and lowering their risks and costs on OCI.

Features & Benefits

Since 2016, Oracle Cloud has expanded to more than 70 services available in 29 cloud regions worldwide with plans to reach 38 total regions by the end of 2021. OCI offers relational, OLAP, JSON, and NoSQL databases, containers, Kubernetes, serverless functions, Spark, streaming, Jupyter notebooks, VMware–the range of cloud services necessary for nearly any workload..

Superior performance

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is designed for applications that require consistent high-performance, including stateful connections to databases, raw processing through CPUs or GPUs, millions of storage IOPS, and GB/s of throughput.

Superior economics

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s Compute offerings are roughly 50% less than comparable AWS or Azure products. Flexible compute shapes enable customers to tailor and pay for instances with the exact amount of cores and memory they need, saving over coarser-grained “t-shirt sized” instances.

Built-in security

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure starts with a zero-trust architecture. This means that not only are tenants isolated from one another, but tenants are also isolated from Oracle and vice versa. The isolated network virtualization mentioned earlier plays a role in this clean separation, as well as a custom hardware root of trust to reimage every instance prior to a new customer receiving it.

Powerful APIs and developer tools

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure APIs are REST APIs that use HTTPS requests and responses. This intuitive API along with a command-line interface and common SDKs in Java, Python, Typescript, Javascript, .NET, Go, and Ruby let you manage large-scale workloads and automate everything.
