Extending its portfolio of enterprise-grade cloud solutions, Oracle announced the availability of two new Oracle Cloud services, Oracle Database Backup and Oracle Storage Cloud. According to Rex Wang, vice president, Product Marketing, Oracle, the new services help simplify IT, reduce costs, and accelerate innovation to drive competitive advantage.
Part of the Oracle Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) portfolio, the Oracle Database Backup Service enables businesses running an on-premises Oracle Database to easily and reliably backup and restore critical business data from the Oracle Cloud, said Wang. It enables customers to continue using the familiar RMAN (Oracle Recovery Manager) commands for performing backup and recovery operations between on-premises Oracle Databases and the Oracle Cloud, and provides the ability to parallelize and compress backup data transfers to help maximize performance and includes client-side encryption to provide end-to-end data security. The Oracle Database Backup Service enables businesses running an on-premises Oracle Database to easily and reliably backup and restore critical business data from the Oracle Cloud.
Additionally, the Oracle Storage Cloud, which is part of the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) portfolio, provides a secure, scalable, and reliable object storage solution that enables organizations to store, access, and manage data in the cloud. In addition, Oracle Storage Cloud is API compatible with OpenStack Swift and provides access to data through REST and Java APIs. The Storage Cloud will allow businesses that generate large volumes of data - such as media companies - to securely and cost-effectively backup and archive their structured and unstructured data to the Oracle Cloud, noted Wang.
With both of these new services, he added, "Business of any size and from any industry can leverage the consumption-based economics of the Oracle Cloud and gain the advantages of seamless integration between on-premises and public cloud deployments."
The new services expand Oracle Cloud’s portfolio of platform and infrastructure services available on a subscription basis.
