Just like other similar products on the market right now, Oracle believes that its Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution “allows developers, IT professionals, and business leaders to develop, test, and deploy the next generation of applications in the cloud in a secure, cost-effective manner that speeds time to market and increases competitive advantage.”
But how is it different to the competition? Well, Oracle’s Steve Daheb says that the company’s focus has not only been to provide the broadest range of PaaS services possible, but also to make the process of managing workloads on-premises and in the cloud completely identical.
A closer look at Oracle Cloud PaaS
Oracle PaaS promises the following features:
• Broadest offering across all major categories; same capabilities in cloud as on premises
• The ability to innovate, integrate, secure, and discover
• Automation through cloud tooling, with a focus on outcomes vs. administration
• Being able to extend, develop, and drive insights across all apps and data, whether they be from Oracle, third-parties, or custom-built
It is also possible to seamlessly integrate with IaaS to scale and migrate workloads. But what tangible impact can this have on your daily IT operations?
How Oracle Cloud PaaS works in the real world
“You think about data management, application development, integration, analytics, security; we have the broadest suite of offerings on the market today,” says Daheb. “This is core to Oracle’s DNA. This is our commitment to driving a solution to market that our customers really need.”
With Oracle Cloud PaaS, you can enjoy the same capabilities in the cloud as on premises. This means greater automation for better outcomes rather than drawn-out administration.
As Daheb explains: “Do I need 700 steps, which includes procuring hardware, racking and stacking it, provisioning a database, and setting it up? Or can I just do a few simple clicks and have that running in the cloud? That’s where the real benefit comes in”
“We’ve seen as much as 60 per cent of the cost savings when customers can actually move to database as a service. That’s what is compelling.”
Therefore, Oracle Cloud PaaS can integrate multiple cloud and on premise applications for increased flexibility and greater value from IT.
