Oracle Cloud Platform continues to gain momentum with customers, partners, and developers

21 Mar 2017 New York - At its premier developer event, Oracle announced that an increasing number of global enterprises, SMBs, and ISVs are choosing the Oracle Cloud Platform to speed innovation, simplify IT, reduce costs, and deliver stellar customer experiences. 7-Eleven, Altair, Astute Business Solutions, Bitnami, Calypso Technology, Ford Motor Company, GE Capital Business Process Management Services, HashiCorp, Infotech, SAS, Vertiv Corporation, and Zensar Technologies are just a few of the many organisations that are using Oracle Cloud's PaaS and IaaS services to easily develop, test, and deploy high-performance applications in the Cloud. Additionally, Oracle continues to expand its Cloud portfolio, making it even more compelling for customers to move to the Cloud.

The Oracle Cloud Platform provides customers, partners, and developers with everything they need to build, deploy, and extend applications and run business-critical workloads in a low-latency, highly available, secure Cloud environment. For developers, the Oracle Cloud Platform provides the foundation they need to provide cutting-edge applications that leverage the latest technology innovations. Developers can use the platform to quickly create applications with microservices, APIs, containers, machine learning, mobile backends, and chatbots using modern DevOps processes. With pre-integrated Big Data and analytics, integration, management and monitoring, mobility and Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities, developers can easily connect these applications to other Cloud or on-premises systems and devices to gain new levels of intelligence and customer success. In the past two years alone, Oracle has delivered more than 50 PaaS and IaaS services to market and introduced new deployment options such as Oracle Cloud at Customer, providing unparalleled opportunity for customers.

"Organisations across industries and geographies are increasingly taking advantage of the Oracle Cloud Platform to quickly develop and deploy business-critical applications", stated Amit Zavery, senior vice president, Oracle Cloud Platform. "By delivering the most advanced cloud capabilities, Oracle is helping customers and partners out-innovate the competition, transform their businesses, and increase profitability."

"Altair has a unique combination of engineering applications and enterprise computing offerings for high performance computing in the Cloud", stated Sam Mahalingam, chief technical officer, Altair. "Our solutions performed extremely well on Oracle Cloud Platform in terms of accuracy, consistency, and cost efficiency. We will continue building solutions for the Oracle Cloud Platform that can leverage the latest infrastructure technology along with Altair's leading Cloud solutions for HPC."

"We continue to be impressed by the breadth and depth of the Oracle Cloud Platform", stated Daniel Lopez, CEO, Bitnami. "Bitnami provides open source images to cover all the functionality a modern enterprise demands: from easy to use tools for developers to production-ready solutions, across Oracle Cloud's IaaS services, virtualized and container-based platforms."

"The shift to Cloud has created a unique opportunity for us to bring technological innovation to the forefront of the financial industry", stated Pascal Xatart, CEO, Calypso Technology. "We are deploying these transformative solutions with Oracle, whose technology stack is an excellent combination of performance, security and agility that allows us to increase the value of our Cloud services."

"HashiCorp and Oracle share many common customers", stated David McJannet, CEO of HashiCorp. "Oracle Cloud's growing support for HashiCorp Terraform will enable our customers to use a common approach to infrastructure provisioning for those workloads that they choose to run in Oracle Cloud. This will enable our joint customers to deliver better applications, faster on the infrastructure of their choice."

"Our market is changing, and so must our industry-leading life science labeling solutions. So we decided to start delivering our ROBAR service via the Cloud to make it easier for new customers to access our world class labeling solutions. For us, high availability, reliability and security are top priorities, especially in the highly regulated industry in which we operate", stated Ardi Batmanghelidj, president and CEO, Innovatum. "We considered several solutions, including Amazon, but chose Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as a Service due to Oracle's reputation as a leading technology provider. Oracle's focus on security helped to tip the scales, along with the cost-effectiveness of its offerings."

"Enterprises building modern apps rely on data services, and they want these data services on any infrastructure or cloud to support hybrid Cloud and multi-Cloud configurations", stated Edward Hsu, vice president of product marketing at Mesosphere. "Mesosphere DC/OS enables IT organisations to become hybrid Cloud service providers, and we're excited to have DC/OS on the Oracle IaaS to give businesses the broadest set of choices on where to run their modern applications."

"Qubole Data Service (QDS) is a turnkey, Big Data-as-a-service platform that accelerates data insight across companies leveraging open source technologies like Spark, Hadoop, Hive, etc. We believe Big Data belongs in the Cloud, and we're excited to support QDS on the Oracle Cloud Platform", stated Ashish Thusoo, co-founder and CEO of Qubole. "Most of the world's enterprise data touches the Oracle ecosystem, and we believe running on the Oracle Cloud Platform provides an ideal solution for turning data into valuable business insights at a compelling price/performance value."

"SUSE, as an enterprise-focused 'open' open source company, has been collaborating with Oracle on many joint technology innovations and for many years", stated Dr. Thomas Di Giacomo, CTO at SUSE. "Today we're very pleased and excited to announce that the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server image is available on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace. This opens the door to future cloud activities in the Oracle Cloud ecosystem around IaaS, PaaS, and enterprise cloud native DevOps, areas in which SUSE is rapidly expanding our solutions."

"As as public Cloud implementer for many years, and as early adopters of Oracle Cloud IaaS and PaaS, in the last quarter we have seen significant adoption of Oracle Cloud across our large managed services customer base in the UK and Ireland. We have projects on-going on Oracle IaaS, PaaS and SaaS in multiple industries including public sector, utilities and the financial services", stated Ken MacMahon, Head of Oracle Cloud Services at Version 1. "A real sweet-spot for its adoption for us has been customers who wish to leverage public cloud for deployment of key application workloads that are built on Oracle technology. This leverages both our Oracle and public Cloud expertise to give customers the optimum benefits and power of the Oracle IaaS and PaaS."

Continuing its rich history of delivering game-changing Cloud services, Oracle recently added new enhancements to the Oracle Cloud Platform, making it even more compelling for customers to move their business-critical applications to the cloud. Most recently, Oracle became the first to offer Oracle Database Cloud on bare metal compute, and new virtual machine (VM) compute, load balancing, and storage capabilities, all on the same low latency, high performance modern IaaS platform. Oracle Cloud Platform now delivers differentiated database performance at every scale, and deeply integrated IaaS capabilities, for customers of any size to easily develop, test, and deploy their business-critical applications in the Cloud.
