The new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure takes on AWS and Microsoft Azure

Don Johnson of OracleBusiness technology major Oracle has added new features to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to offer more performance and reliability as compared with AWS and Microsoft Azure.

The new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers 87 percent more compute performance and 54 percent better price-performance compared to Amazon Web Services, another top cloud provider.

“Enterprises are moving workloads to the cloud for a variety of reasons, whether it is to eliminate datacenters, migrate legacy workloads, or build and run performance-intensive applications in a more agile environment,” said Don Johnson, senior vice president, Oracle.

Oracle has enhanced performance by adding a non-oversubscribed 25 Gigabit (Gb) network and optimized edge access with a DNS.

Oracle provides better price and performance per CPU and GPU core and guaranteed storage performance at no additional cost.

The new Bare Metal Dense I/O instance provides 52 cores and 51 Terabytes (TB) of non-volatile memory express (NVMe) solid state drive (SSD) capacity, capable of millions of input/output operations per second (IOPS).

The new Bare Metal Standard instance offers the same number of cores, but can scale to 512 TB of SSD block volumes, enabling high storage capacity use cases no other cloud vendor can match. New Virtual Machine instances will also be available in 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 24-core shapes, leveraging the faster processors and increased memory of the X7 architecture.

Oracle’s new bare metal GPU instances are up to 400 percent faster while costing 58 percent less than comparable solutions from competitors from AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Oracle said its all-flash block volume storage is designed to deliver within 10 percent of 60 IOPS per Gigabyte (GB) and 480 Kilobytes per second of throughput, 99.95 percent of the time.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customers can now run resource-intensive workloads, such as databases and analytics, with block storage that is 25 percent faster and costs up to 98 percent less than AWS.

Oracle is introducing a new Archive Storage service, leveraging the same APIs as the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage, available at only $0.003/GB/month. This offers customers a low-cost, integrated alternative for long term storage.

Oracle’s new 25Gb network infrastructure offers significantly more throughput than most traditional cloud network architectures and allows enterprises to cost effectively take full advantage of the latest connectivity to compute, storage, and database services.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure announced a new version of its Ravello Service, which offers up to 14X better performance than the previous version. Enterprises can run VMware VMs of up to 32 vCPUs to scale applications vertically and up to 2,000 VMs to scale horizontally.
