From Security to Performance: Why Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Is the Smart Choice for Your Business
Author: Mahesh Vanapalli | | April 18, 2023
According to a recent study conducted by Gartner, approximately 48% of businesses invest in cloud computing technology innovations. Furthermore, global cloud infrastructure expenditure is projected to exceed $118 billion by the year 2025. Therefore, as most businesses continue to migrate organisational workloads, data systems and infrastructure to the cloud, it is crucial to select the right cloud vendor to satisfy your business’s preferences and requirements.
Oracle Cloud is the perfect choice for businesses migrating legacy on-premises workloads to the cloud. It is equipped with all the tools your business needs to take advantage of the power of a cloud environment. Furthermore, it combines the flexibility, scalability, and utility of public cloud solutions with the data governance, security, and control of private solutions.
Top Reasons to Choose Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for Your Business:
1) Automated Security Using a Zero-Trust Approach
Recent studies have shown that the biggest cloud security concern for 69% of organisations is data loss and leakage. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is specifically designed with a zero-trust, security-first architecture. This means that businesses can leverage user-friendly security tools and automation capabilities to prevent configuration issues and promote security and encryption best practices without incurring any additional costs.
Oracle Cloud provides businesses with secure enclaves and zones for sensitive workloads, built-in security posture management, role-based access control (RBAC) and DDoS protection. Furthermore, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure allows businesses to secure organisational workloads, sensitive data and business processes using security services such as data protection and encryption, incident identification, compliance services, infrastructure protection, identity and access management, remediation and much more.
2) Unique and Dynamic Service-Level Agreements
While most cloud vendors typically only provide users with access to a certain amount of cloud infrastructure, Oracle Cloud provides users with unique and dynamic Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) that can allow users to optimise and accelerate organisational performance. Therefore, businesses can leverage the wide variety of benefits of Oracle Cloud’s end-to-end SLAs that cover the performance, availability, and manageability of cloud services.
This means that your business will be able to ensure consistent and reliable performance as well as manage, observe, and adjust cloud resources at any point in time depending on changing demand.
3) Scalable Multi-Node Autonomous Services
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure supports scalable, multi-node autonomous services for Oracle Databases. Therefore, your business can support Oracle Databases using autonomous services on optimised hardware, bare metal, and virtual machines. Fully automated database services can enable your business to easily develop and deploy large organisational application workloads irrespective of complexity, criticality, or scale.
Furthermore, Oracle Cloud’s autonomous databases are equipped with a converged engine that can support various data types, which can significantly simplify application development and deployment procedures such as coding, modelling, ETL processes, data analysis, database optimization and much more. Oracle Autonomous Databases can also optimise performance, availability, and security for Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), data analytics and Internet of Things (IoT) workloads using automated tuning, scaling, and patching powered by machine learning.
4) Migrate Workloads More Efficiently
As cloud computing technology continues to advance at rapid and unprecedented rates, modern businesses are increasingly migrating key workloads to the cloud to improve enterprise application availability and performance as well as accelerate overall organisational efficiency. Research indicates that on-premises workloads will reduce by approximately 13% in favour of solutions such as cloud storage. However, most businesses’ primary goal is to migrate legacy, on-premises workloads, applications, data, and systems without substantially altering architecture, switching from familiar software and solutions, or introducing overly complex processes.
While migrating organisational workloads into cloud can be tedious and time-consuming, Oracle Cloud makes migration much easier and faster than ever before. Oracle Cloud offers native bare metal services that can support any enterprise application, VMware solutions with complete administrative control, an extremely low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for Oracle databases and applications, GPU-powered bare metal compute instances and much more. Furthermore, migrating to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides businesses with the ability to take advantage of optimised deployment options, lower costs, higher performance, and the option to scale up infrastructure as needed without significant time delays.
Leverage Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to Optimise Organisational Performance:
While deciding to move your on-premises workloads to cloud, can be confusing and time consuming, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure can provide your business with automated security using zero-trust approaches, unique manageability and performance SLAs that can optimise overall efficiency, scalable multi-node autonomous database services and accelerated workload migration tools.
