A modern business or organisation stands to make substantial gains from using the Oracle Cloud. The cloud from Oracle gives you the edge to outperform your competitors with enterprise-class data management tools.
Oracle’s cloud offering is one of the most complete, and it's unique in being fully integrated: from the infrastructure, to the platform, to the applications that run on it. It acts an enabler, changing how an organisation accesses and uses their IT – for the benefit of all.
As Gold Partners, we're positioned to be your independent partner throughout your cloud journey.
The Oracle Cloud is broadly divided in to 3 broad areas - IaaS, PaaS and SaaS - which stand for:
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
This is the nuts and bolts: the servers themselves (such as the lightning-fast, database-optimised Exadata machines), the storage and the networks. This is where the magic of elastic compute and storage happens - giving you the ability to run any workload in the cloud.
To use an analogy that Oracle thought up: if you were comparing the cloud to housing, IaaS would be the land and equipment you need to build your own house.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
This refers primarily to the Oracle Cloud database and all its data management utilities. This is the foundation of other applications, that facilitate: application development, business intelligence, content and process, integration, monitoring and management. It underlies the tools that make a modern business run smoothly. As Oracle Cloud is based on open standards, all Oracle PaaS services work together seamlessly, with easy portability between on-premises and cloud environments. It's why the Oracle platform is described as "the most integrated" of all cloud offerings.
To follow Oracle's housing analogy: PaaS would be where you rent a house, unfurnished. You furnish it yourself, and it's your design choices.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
These are the Oracle Cloud applications that cover the full range of activities essential to any business. Examples would be: enterprise resource planning, business analytics, marketing, customer experience, application development, supply chain, big data analytics, human resource management - and more.
To continue the housing comparison: SaaS is when you buy a house that's furnished: everything is there already, in readiness for your use.
One platform, many uses
It's the way that these services work together seamlessly that differentiates the Oracle Cloud against other cloud service providers.
