Oracle has been named a Leader in the 2023 Gartner® Strategic Cloud Platform Services Magic Quadrant
In the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant for Strategic Cloud Platform Services, (formally known as Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Services), Oracle has been named a Leader.
Strategic cloud platform services are public cloud offerings that combine infrastructure services (such as computing, networks, and storage), platform services (such as managed application and data services), and transformation services (such as programs and resources that assist customers in adopting cloud-oriented IT delivery models). These features are standardized and automated, according to Gartner.
According to Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, “We believe this recognition further demonstrates Oracle’s growth in this key category and places OCI among the four global hyperscale cloud providers in the Leaders Quadrant.” That’s the official word from Oracle. In response to the increasing demand for OCI throughout the world, we have developed a novel distributed cloud strategy to accommodate our clients’ varying requirements. The scalability, availability, performance, and versatility offered by OCI have made it the go-to solution for businesses of all sizes and in all sectors. We anticipate further fortification of our position thanks to our hyperscaler’s superior pricing performance and built-in-by-default security measures.
Oracle provides Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Software as a Service offerings. Oracle can now provide its clients additional flexibility in terms of where and how their applications are operated, such in cloud environments or distributed systems. Organizations can more easily comply with data sovereignty and other regulatory obligations because to this flexibility. A wide range of businesses are making use of OCI’s specialized cloud offerings. Companies who have recently made the switch to OCI because to the flexibility it offers in terms of cloud services are detailed here.
Cloud computing, when and how clients require it
Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud, MySQL HeatWave Lakehouse on AWS, and Oracle Database@Azure are just a few of the robust distributed cloud services that OCI has just released to the market. Customers like TEAM IM and Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (NRI) have been able to develop at the rate of hyperscalers thanks to Oracle Alloy, an award-winning cloud infrastructure platform.
Customers have more options than with other public clouds because to OCI’s distributed cloud approach, which provides the same 100+ OCI cloud services in locations that suit their needs at consistent prices. Because of this, OCI is able to satisfy the needs of clients in industries that are subject to stringent regulations. At present, OCI provides 46 public cloud regions in 23 different nations, including 2 regions inside the EU Sovereign Cloud, to meet the data residency and data sovereignty needs of that area. For reasons of U.S. national security, Oracle also runs distinct government clouds in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, as well as isolated cloud regions. Oracle Alloy also allows partners to personalize cloud services with their brand, and customers may deploy OCI cloud services in their own data centers.
Speed up your move to the cloud by executing your workloads on both OCI and Microsoft Azure
The East US area is expected to have Oracle Database@Azure available beginning in December 2023. Customers will be able to access Oracle database services hosted in Microsoft Azure datacenters directly using OCI. Oracle Database on OCI’s scalability, performance, and workload availability, together with Microsoft Azure’s security, flexibility, and best-in-class services, will be made available to customers through this new service. To streamline cloud migration, multicloud deployment, and maintenance, only Microsoft provides OCI Database Services, a feature solely offered by hyperscalers.
AI that is built into cloud apps using state-of-the-art AI infrastructure and has generative AI capabilities tailored to businesses
OCI offers a solid framework for large-scale model training and serving. With the help of its collaboration with NVIDIA, OCI is able to provide clients with superclusters that are comprised of state-of-the-art graphics processing units (GPUs) linked via a RoCE network that ensures very low latency. On top of that, OCI offers clients top-notch generative AI models that are enhanced with Oracle’s distinct industry expertise and data insights, drawing on Cohere’s cutting-edge big language models. To ensure that its clients can take advantage of cutting-edge developments while maintaining their current business processes, Oracle has integrated these generative AI services into its cloud applications, industrial apps, and database portfolio. Last but not least, OCI Generative AI and other OCI AI Services provide developers a suite of tools with pre-built machine learning models for integrating AI into their apps and company processes.
The cloud platform services provided by OCI have been consistently recognized by the industry. The 2023 Distributed Hybrid Infrastructure Magic Quadrant from Gartner® identifies OCI as a Leader.
