Why the evolution of enterprise cloud is imminent

25 Oct 2018

Driven by customer demand for its cloud services, Oracle announced enhancements to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, as well as an updated global data centre region roadmap.

“Oracle has built a cloud best suited to handle the world’s most important business workloads. These workloads require the highest levels of security to handle the increase in demand for superior price and performance – most of which have yet to make the transition to the cloud,” said Don Johnson, senior vice president, product development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. 

With these advancements, Oracle continues to provide the secure, mission-critical infrastructure customers can depend on to run enterprise applications.

Security Enhancements 

Oracle extended its commitment to provide cloud customers core-to-edge security by introducing new integrated security solutions to combat sophisticated cyber threats with layers of defence. 

The new cloud services include a Key Management Service (KMS) that allows customers to control the encryption of their data; an integrated Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), which monitors and enforces secure configurations; a Web Application Firewall (WAF) designed to protect against attacks on web traffic; and Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) protection to help stop malicious actors from disrupting customer applications.

Upgrade to Autonomous Database

Oracle is previewing new capabilities with dedicated Oracle Exadata cloud infrastructure for the latest release of Oracle Autonomous Database cloud service, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP). 

Running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, ATP allows the line of business or development teams to each have their applications or development projects deployed in a fully dedicated ‘private cloud like environment’ on Oracle Cloud.

Openness

To support its commitment to openness, and with expanding relationships with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), Oracle is announcing it has joined the Internet Society (ISOC) and Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition).  Oracle will be a key member of these internet infrastructure community organizations to drive forward global internet policy and educational programs, as well as joining various working groups and industry events.

Enterprise Expertise

Oracle announced a new integrated experience for partners and customers that makes it easier for them to publish and deploy business applications from Oracle Cloud Marketplace on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
