Microsoft and Oracle released a new cloud partnership that is designed to help customers run workloads and seamlessly move data between Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud.
The partnership, which connects both clouds through network and identity interoperability, is positioned to enable users to run part of a workload within Oracle Cloud and another part within Microsoft Azure. Together, the companies aim to help customers leverage the best of both clouds and provide a one-stop shop for all cloud services and applications needs.
Specifically, the partnership includes:
- The ability to connect Azure and Oracle Cloud so customers can expand their datacenters on both clouds;
- Support to run custom applications like Oracle E-Business Suite or Oracle JD Edwards on Azure, while using an Oracle database; and
- Unified single-sign on and automated user provisioning to manage resources between both clouds.
“Oracle and Microsoft have served enterprise customer needs for decades,” Don Johnson, EVP of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, in a statement. “With this partnership, our joint customers can migrate their entire set of existing applications to the cloud without having to re-architect anything, preserving the large investments they have already made.”
