Oracle IaaS & PaaS services are ideal for businesses to boost their cloud presence by making the most of cloud computing. Oracle offers a wide range of “building block” software that can be used to build easily-scalable applications and provide enterprise software features such as databases and security products. The company also provides managed services that provide 24/7 monitoring, automatic failover, and disaster recovery — high peace of mind.

In this article we have covered the basics of Oracle Cloud in detail and look to explain the advantages of Oracle Cloud services.

What is Oracle Cloud?

Oracle Cloud is an excellent cloud computing solutions offered by Oracle with the ability to manage data, storage, applications, network and more. The primary types of services listed under Oracle Cloud.

  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Data as a Service (DaaS)
  • Information as a Service (IaaS)

The above four offerings are widely popular in the business landscape for development, deployment, integration, and extension of applications in the Cloud from on-premise. Two of the most commonly used among the four are: IaaS and PaaS. Now, let us discuss it in detail.

Infrastructure as a Service

IaaS allows businesses to transfer their on-premise applications to the Cloud. By doing so, it is possible to use Oracle infrastructure at minimal cost to scale the app as and when needed.

Investing in an in-house data center is not feasible for most businesses due to cost involved and the complexity of  handling data management in-house. With the help of IaaS, businesses can easily transfer their applications from on-premise systems to the Cloud. Let us check out some IaaS services below:

Compute

In the Compute service, GPU works as the primary source to control and manage the host system. A recent development suggests the use of Virtual Machine Instances where there is no requirement of manual control.

Data Storage

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offers the storage of data in buckets that offer growth. Here, there is a possibility to pay for the services that you use. This is a boon for small and medium businesses where the budgets are restricted. Businesses can easily store data ranging from 50GB to 2TB easily with the help of SSDs. 

Moreover, you can also use the OCI Data Transfer Service which is a data migration tool to upload large quantities of business critical data to the Cloud. 

Some of the other popular services are Load Balancing, Networking, Edge Services, Governance and Containers. Let us know if you would like us to prepare a blog for IaaS services in detail?
