Oracle and Microsoft have teamed up to deliver Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure, designed to provide Azure users with direct and streamlined access to Oracle databases on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
The deal will allow users to provision, access and monitor enterprise-grade Oracle Database services in OCI in a known manner, Microsoft said in an announcement.
Users can migrate or build new applications on Azure and then connect to Oracle’s powerful, highly available database services.
“Microsoft and Oracle have a long history of working together to support the needs of our mutual customers, and this partnership exemplifies how we provide customers with choice and flexibility as they digitally transform with cloud technology,” explains Corey Sanders, Corporate Vice President . , Microsoft Cloud for Industry and Global Expansion.
“Oracle’s decision to select Microsoft as a preferred partner deepens the relationship between our two companies and gives customers the confidence to work with two industry leaders.”
The solution builds on Oracle Interconnect’s core capabilities to enable customers to easily integrate cloud platform workloads with Oracle Database Services on OCI.
With a few clicks, users can connect their Azure subscriptions to their OCI tenancy, with the service then configuring everything needed to link the two cloud environments and include Azure Active Directory identities.
There is also no charge for using Oracle Database Service, Oracle Interconnect, or data entry or exit when moving data between OCI and Azure. Instead, customers only pay for the other Azure or Oracle services they use, such as Azure Synapse or Oracle Autonomous Database.
Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, said the solution will allow customers to “easily test and demonstrate the value of combining Oracle databases with Azure applications.”
“There is no need for deep skills on both our platforms or complex configurations – anyone can use the Azure portal to bring the power of our two clouds together,” he said.
