Oracle’s New Cloud Platform For Integration
Oracle, a global computer technology corporation, recently announced two additions to its cloud platform for integration: Oracle SOA Cloud Service and Oracle API Manager Cloud Service, a suite of tools that allow users to integrate on-premises and cloud-based applications. These two new services join Oracle’s iPaaS services.
These new additions were built on Oracle’s SOA suite, which is based on service-oriented architecture, and Oracle’s SOA Cloud Service offers easy provisioning, management, automatic upgrades and easy scale up. The result of this is that programmers are able to quickly develop, deploy and scale their API and integration projects.
Additionally, hybrid integration is supported via its deployment portability feature, enabling users to move their platforms from the cloud to on-premises as business demands change. This feature is ideal for organizations that wish to move their integration workloads to the cloud while deploying production on-premises.
A recent Ovum survey reported that almost 90 percent of respondents showed an inclination towards adopting cloud-based integration platform for appropriate use. Low cost agility and digitalization are what is driving the need for hybrid integration solutions, with SOA and iPaaS being some of the preferred options. Organizations need to distribute these integration processes in a manner that maximizes efficient utilization of both on-premises and cloud-based infrastructure and operational spend.
Oracle’s cloud platform has been seeing exponential growth, and they are behind some of the world’s most distinguishable organizations. They have more than 2,500 customers using their Cloud Platform, which includes services such as Application Development, Business Analytics, Content and Collaboration, Data Management, Integration, and Mobile.
Oracle cloud supports more than 70 million users and handles over 33 billion transactions per day. It stores more than 700 petabytes of storage in its 19 data centers around the world to support the over 54,000 mobile devices it runs on.
