Oracle set its sights on a bigger piece of the cloud pie Tuesday with new IaaS services that put it in more direct competition with Amazon Web Services.
The new IaaS services were introduced by Thomas Kurian, Oracle’s president of product development, at its OpenWorld show in San Francisco.
First, Oracle Elastic Compute Cloud allows customers to choose between elastic and dedicated compute options. Elastic Compute offers the ability to run any workload in the cloud in a shared compute zone, while the dedicated option adds capabilities such as CPU pinning and complete network isolation.
Compute Cloud supports a variety of operating systems, including Linux and Windows, and features robust monitoring capabilities, Oracle said.
