Oracle expands its Cloud Platform

By

Six additional services will be available on the Oracle Cloud Platform.

Among his usual slew of product announcements at Oracle OpenWorld 2014, co-founder, chief technology officer and executive chairman Larry Ellison revealed six new services for the Oracle Cloud Platform.

The Oracle Cloud Platform is used by the company to run its own SaaS applications, and is also used by 19 of the world's top 20 SaaS providers, company officials stated.

The platform includes Oracle Database, Java, and Oracle Fusion Middleware, and provides multitenancy, in-memory analytics, mobile, and social technologies.

It currently supports 62 million users and 23 billion transactions per day, and runs in 19 data centres around the world, including Sydney.

The six new services are:

Oracle Big Data Cloud: the Hadoop framework fully integrated with other Oracle Cloud services.

Oracle Mobile Cloud: a cloud-based back end for enterprise-grade mobile apps.

Oracle Integration Cloud: support for designing, deploying, monitoring, and managing cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-on-premises integrations.

Oracle Process Cloud: support for designing, deploying, monitoring, and optimising business processes.

Oracle Node.js Cloud: a platform for deploying JavaScript applications in the highly available and dynamically scalable Oracle Cloud infrastructure.

Oracle Java SE Cloud: like Oracle Node.js, but for Java SE 7 or 8 applications.

"With this new set of platform services, Oracle is positioned even better than before to help our customers realise the true benefits of cloud computing," said Oracle executive vice president of product development Thomas Kurian.

"Oracle will continue to expand its portfolio of functionally rich, integrated, and secure platform services built on a core set of infrastructure services to truly empower the developer community to build modern applications of tomorrow."

In related news, Oracle announced it is working with three US universities to develop the Oracle Student Cloud, a cloud-based student information system for higher education institutions.
