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 features include:

  • The exact same SLAs, APIs, and tools available in Oracle's public cloud for a truly consistent experience

  • Support for Oracle Fusion SaaS applications such as ERP, HCM, SCM, and CX in your data centerp.

  • Everything, including the control plane, is located in your data centers for tight control over data sovereignty and governance.

  • Flexible configurations and consumption-based pricing for all infrastructure and platform cloud services lower your costs.

  • Cloud-native services such as Container Engine for Kubernetes, Docker, and Bare Metal servers so you can easily create modern applications.

  • Immediate availability of new capabilities and security updates in your data center once they are available for OCI.

  • Low-latency interaction with your on-premises applications and databases
