News and Analysis to Guide Your Strategy
Only the Upside
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) has been around a long time now, but
it so far has required a lot of trade-offs. You get the upsides of cloud
elasticity and pay-as-you-go flexibility, but you compromise on things
such as the control and predictability you get when running in your own
data center. So Oracle has a next-generation IaaS built to keep the
upside and eliminate the compromises.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure does that by offering the expected
cloud-based virtual machines, but also bare metal servers and even engineered
systems such as Oracle Exadata—all in the same cloud infrastructure. IT
teams "can use the familiar infrastructure patterns they use on
premises—for example, a very high-performance engineered system—and they
can also adopt cloud-native patterns," says Marc Levy, an architect
and vice president of software development at Oracle. Read more in Oracle Magazine about
the cloud's breakthrough infrastructure.
The New Battle for Enterprise Cybersecurity
Moving forward, cyberwar will be between machines, which is why, says
Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison, autonomous security
technologies are crucial. "The key thing is to find a vulnerability
before there's a threat, and shut off the vulnerability or patch the
system," he said at Oracle OpenWorld. That's why it's a battle of machine versus machine.
Three Big Data Tips to Help Your Small Business Grow
Small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) are no longer priced out from using big
data platforms, thanks to cloud-based platforms. But they still need to
spend their resources wisely. One tip: Ensure that both internal and
external data sources across systems, devices, and channels are
aggregated onto a single data platform. Two more tips to remember.
The Road To A 1,000 Mph Car
The Bloodhound Project has reached its biggest milestone so far on its
10-year journey to break the world land-speed record, having completed
the first runway trials. The trials create massive data output, which the
team manages on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and shares with students to
spark their interest in engineering and computing. What's next?
