Top 5 Surprising Reasons to Use Oracle Cloud

At this point, everyone knows that leveraging cloud solutions, such as Oracle Cloud, can lower your costs, support true agility, and improve enterprise-wide productivity. These are all great reasons to move to the cloud – but they’re old news. 

The cloud changes fast, and so do the reasons enterprise leaders choose it. Here are the 5 top surprising reasons to move to the cloud in 2020 and beyond. 

1. Better Decision Making

Your enterprise houses lots of data, lots of departments, lots of employees, and lots of customers – and each of these areas have their own interaction methods, transactions, and complex data loads. The Oracle Cloud provides a convenient, high-performance solution that helps you both keep track of and seamlessly integrate all of your many sources of data. 

This data integration solution can be found in Oracle PaaS, which stands for Platform as a Service. Oracle PaaS provides your enterprise with a critical “single pane of glass” viewpoint, which ties together all your systems, both cloud and non-cloud, so you can gain true insight into all your data and all your operations, all the time. 

With comprehensive data at your fingertips, you’ll have all you need to make great decisions anytime. 

2. Multicloud Freedom

Oracle Cloud is unique in its integration with other cloud platforms. These days, there are many, many clouds, including AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure, to name a few, and savvy business leaders are choosing to link these various clouds together, so they can build a true multicloud environment that offers them the best all-around performance for their needs. 

Only Oracle Cloud solutions have the flexibility to run on non-Oracle infrastructures and integrate with other leading cloud solutions, to give you the multicloud flexibility your company needs to succeed. 

3. DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service)

One of the top benefits of the cloud — yet one that enterprises rarely realize before the fact — is that the cloud can eliminate downtime. With DRaaS, the cloud-based Disaster Recovery as a Service, companies now have instant, seamless failover protection provided by a backup system that replicates their real-time cloud environment on a secure cloud platform. 

DRaaS can also simplify testing and validation, as well as updates and upgrades, and can be used to make patching quick and easy, with no business interruption necessary in most cases. 

4. Latest Updates

As we mentioned earlier, the cloud offers more advantages all the time, and only enterprises running on the cloud will have the freedom to leverage the full range of cloud advances at will. 

Recently, Oracle introduced autonomous functionality for databases and operating systems, both of which create a lower-risk system with zero human error. Other recent Oracle Cloud updates include blockchain and AI Voice assistance… yet these are only a few of the latest updates cloud users can expect from a cloud-based system. 

5. Performance

Remember when the cloud used have a problem with slow performance? Take note because we said, “used to.” These days, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides blazing-fast bare metal performance, a dedicated private network connection, and global transaction processing that can be completed in the blink of an eye. 

That means that, due to the advances in the Oracle Cloud, enterprises with low latency requirements are no longer tied to unwieldy on-premises solutions. Modern enterprises can “have their cake and eat it too” by combining extreme, raw performance with unprecedented cloud agility. 

What Are Your Reasons for Choosing Oracle Cloud?

In this article, we listed only 5 of the top reasons that enterprises choose Oracle’s cloud solutions, but there are many, many more reasons that make cloud the right choice for businesses like yours
