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.”
