What is the Oracle Cloud Machine?

Oracle Cloud Machine

The idea of moving workloads to the public cloud is appealing because of the platform’s flexibility, cost-efficiency, and scalability. Security concerns, however, are a deterrent from using the public cloud. A report published in BusinessWire revealed 25 percent of organizations using the public cloud have had their data compromised.

Although a private cloud may sound like a good and logical alternative to the public cloud, the process of building and managing this platform is complicated.  On top of that, cloud exclusivity comes at a high cost.

Oracle, a renowned multinational computer technology company, has come up with the Oracle Cloud Machine to address challenges in both the public and private cloud. This integrated solution is a replica of Oracle Public Cloud services, which let you enjoy the benefits of the Oracle cloud while still having complete control over your applications and data.

The Oracle Public Cloud Machine also enables you to move non-Oracle and Oracle workloads effortlessly between a cloud and an on-premise platform to satisfy business requirements. Thanks to this capability, you can achieve your organization’s vision of adopting a hybrid cloud.  

Benefits of Using Oracle Cloud Machine

The main advantage of Oracle Cloud Machine is the pricing. Enterprises can pay for this solution monthly, similar to what public cloud service providers are offering. Businesses can select the features they want for their organization, including application development, file storage, and data management.

Another benefit of using this integrated solution is that your organization can meet the established data sovereignty and audit requirements. You can leverage the Oracle Cloud Machine to comply with the following regulatory standards in and outside the US:

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for managing private health care records
  • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for handling sensitive, personal data from cardholders
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for handling customer data in the European Union (EU)

Oracle Cloud Applications

Here are a few cases that can help you make the most of the capabilities of the Oracle Cloud Machine:

  • Leverage this solution to extend the capabilities of Oracle-packaged applications, such as the Oracle Configure, Price and Quote (CPQ) and Oracle E-Business Suite. With the Oracle Public Cloud Machine, you can tailor these modern applications to adapt to changing business needs or meet organizational requirements. Customizing an application comes with many benefits, including decreased operational costs, simplified development, and better service quality.
  • Build cloud-native applications with the help of the Oracle Cloud Machine. Use the solution as a building block to aid in your development of an innovative cloud application.
  • Move and run existing Java Enterprise Edition (EE) application to the Oracle Cloud Machine. By doing so, you free your company’s IT team from the time-consuming task of upgrading or installing underlying Weblogic Server domains.
