Simplified Cloud Solutions: Oracle Consolidates On-Premise Offerings into a Single Rack
Oracle has introduced its Compute Cloud@Customer, an on-premises cloud infrastructure platform. Key points about this offering include:
On-Premises Cloud: Oracle’s Compute Cloud@Customer is an on-premises cloud solution, allowing enterprises to have cloud-like capabilities within their own data centers.
Managed by Oracle: Oracle will build, install, own, and remotely manage the infrastructure platform. This approach simplifies the management burden for IT teams, enabling them to focus on other responsibilities.
Data Residency Control: Enterprises can exercise control over data residency and compliance considerations by having the cloud infrastructure on-site.
Hardware Specifications: The hardware features 4th Generation AMD EPYC processors with 96 cores each and DDR5 memory. Customers can scale up to 2,208 cores in a single rack or 6,624 cores across three racks.
Storage Options: Storage options range from 150 TB to 3.4 PB, with flexible configurations for object, block, and file storage.
Pricing Flexibility: Oracle offers pricing flexibility based on consumption and tailored to the customer’s requirements. The cost per core for Compute Cloud@Customer is set at $53 per month, compared to AWS Outposts’ $143 per month.
Competitive Advantage: Oracle claims that its offering provides significantly more cores per rack compared to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Outposts and Microsoft Azure Stack Hub, potentially offering cost advantages.
Oracle’s Compute Cloud@Customer aims to provide enterprises with the benefits of cloud infrastructure while maintaining control over data and infrastructure location. It also positions Oracle as a competitor in the on-premises cloud market, offering an alternative to other cloud providers’ solutions.
