Oracle has announced the Oracle Cloud Native Framework, to provide developers a cloud native solution that spans public cloud, on premises and hybrid cloud deployments.
Capitalizing on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and the recently announced Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment, the Oracle Cloud Native Framework aims to provide a cloud native managed services and on-premise software.
The Oracle Cloud Native Framework also introduces Oracle Functions, a serverless cloud service based on the open source Fn Project.
By providing cloud native capabilities and offerings regardless of the deployment scenario and leveraging open standards established by the Oracle is a platinum member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), and says that by providing cloud native capabilities and offerings regardless of the deployment scenario and leveraging open standards established by the CNCF, it is providing its customers with choice while meeting the broad deployment needs of developers.
“With the growing popularity of the CNCF as a unifying and organizing force in the cloud native ecosystem and organizations increasingly embracing multi cloud and hybrid cloud models, developers should have the flexibility to build and deploy their applications anywhere they choose without the threat of cloud vendor lock-in. Oracle is making this a reality,” said Don Johnson, executive vice president, product development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
To further enable developers to build and deploy modern applications, Oracle is introducing a set of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services built on Oracle’s Gen 2 Cloud IaaS and existing foundational Kubernetes orchestration and management layer, the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE). These new offerings are focused on three critical Oracle Cloud Infrastructure cloud native layers: Application Definition & Development, Provisioning, and Observability & Analysis
With the announcement of Oracle Functions, a new serverless solution based on the open source Fn Project, developers can deploy and execute function-based applications without the need to manage compute infrastructure.
Oracle Functions is Docker container-based and completely pay-per-use, so charges are incurred only when functions are run. The underlying Fn Project, which Oracle Functions offers as a fully-managed service, can run on-premises, in a data center, or on any cloud. The Oracle Cloud Native Framework supports both cloud native and traditional (WebLogic, Java, and database) applications.
