Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud: Powerful, instinctive, innovative

BY: HT Brand Studio, Published: Sept 27 2019

The first generation of cloud triggered the introduction of net-new, cloud-native applications built and used by several startups. However, Oracle’s second-generation cloud infrastructure focusses on the needs of large, established firms, which require more powerful infrastructure in order to move their on-premise data to cloud.

Autonomous technology enables the systems running administrative tasks to manage themselves, and gives people an opportunity to spearhead tasks that are strategic and add genuine value to the organisation.

Here’s how it’s relevant in India.

Relevance in India

While autonomous cloud has started picking up pace globally, India is a major focus, considering that many businesses are still trying to upgrade themselves and compete with their global peers head-on.

Research shows that Indian businesses have a lot of work to do. The country ranked 18 among 25 nations in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s ‘Automation Readiness Index’1. The latter conveys the preparedness of a nation for smoothly integrating intelligent automation into their economies. Indian businesses, therefore, need technologies which can help them advance faster and more efficiently. And, Oracle’s Gen 2 Cloud can help them in that direction.

Read on to know how Gen 2 Cloud can prove to be a game-changer.

Moving and improving

Decades of on-premise datacenter investment need not be an impediment. Rather, this can be a catalyst to quickly migrate all organized information to the next generation of cloud.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers ‘bare metal architecture’, which means businesses can ‘move and improve’ all of their tech investments to the cloud. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure enables businesses to take what they’re currently running in the datacenter and move it all to the cloud without having to fret and fume over lost investments and the effort required to modernize the workplace.

Enhanced security

Oracle’s Gen 2 Cloud is designed to strengthen an organization’s security fabric by intuitively countering and circumventing cyber-threats and data thefts.

Trusting cloud infrastructure has been a major concern for enterprises dealing with large amounts of sensitive data. This is why Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud lays a lot of focus on using artificial intelligence and machine learning to detect malicious activity and patterns. Moreover, isolation of customer data by using a separate layer for customer traffic ensures neither other customers nor the vendor can see other customer’s data or have access to the cloud control plane.

Mission-critical performance

New architecture, improved capabilities and better technologies allow Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud to deliver high performance at low costs.

Customers are increasingly demanding faster, deeper, and more accurate insights. But most database technologies aren’t fast enough to handle such heavy-duty analytics workloads for real-time reporting. Oracle’s cloud infrastructure is designed to scale up with the business, thereby ensuring minimum latency and way higher computing speeds.

Enterprise expertise

From tooling and support to professional services, Oracle along with its strong partner ecosystems is able to provide expert support needed during and post implementation of cloud infrastructure.

The nature of Oracle’s cloud is such that it easily enables enterprises of all sizes migrate to the cloud. Scalable and available on-demand, Gen 2 Cloud provides more agility and versatility to align with an organization’s expansion and growth goals. By offering enterprise-grade technology clubbed with impeccable service, Oracle aims to assist enterprises at every step of their transformation journey.

Open Standards Technology

Support for open source technology and interoperable standards allow customization of features and improved compatibility with other technologies.

What makes it even simpler to integrate Oracle’s Generation 2 cloud with existing enterprise technology is the fact that Oracle cloud infrastructure is based on openness. This simplifies the migration of on-premise workload and orchestration of different workloads across premises, which may be working in a hybrid or multi-cloud fashion.
