Instant Productivity for Your Business
To succeed in today’s competitive markets. Enterprises need to free themselves from the traditional IT infrastructure shackles that hinder business agility and growth. Infrastructure as a Service(IaaS) provides exactly this – on-demand access to IT infrastructure resources in the public cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform offers a scalable, resilient, next generation infrastructure, purpose-built or running enterprise workloads.
The “cloud” has recently become a part of our modern IT lexicon, and there are many definitions and distinctions of different cloud deployment and service models. To try and cut down a bit on the cloudwashing (a term Gartner uses to refer to the marketing practice of adding the word cloud to practically any technology product or service), let’s keep it simple.
The Oracle Cloud Platform offers a variety of compute options to suit your organization’s needs with a resilient infrastructure service that provides rapidly provisioned virtual machines in both single-tenant and multitenant configurations. Oracle Cloud at Customer compute solutions (discussed later in this chapter) can be hosted on a customer’s premises or in the customer’s data center.
IaaS provides increased speed and agility by offering ondemand, self-service access to servers, storage, and networking resources in the cloud. Developers can get access to infrastructure to run their applications in minutes, and the cloud provides resource elasticity to scale up and down as the needs of the application dictate, providing significant flexibility that isn’t typically possible in an on-premises environment.
In the cloud, a single-tenant environment is a host machine dedicated entirely to a single customer, whereas a multitenant environment is a host machine in a virtual machine model that often hosts multiple customers.
