What and Why Oracle Cloud @ Customer?
Oracle Cloud@Customer is a private on-premise secure and powerful
cloud that you can get by paying less than 5% of the total cost. SMBs then have to pay based on
usage every month at the same price as you would pay on the public cloud.
More importantly, the cloud at the customer is fully managed by Oracle including hardware and
software upgrades. Customers enjoy faster on-premise speeds, easy connectivity to other on-prem
apps residing on separate hardware, and secure connectivity to clouds (if required). Other
