Oracle Databases Now Available on Microsoft Azure

Oracle is a leading provider of database software. Its database products are used by businesses of all sizes around the world. Azure is a cloud computing platform offered by Microsoft. It offers a wide range of services, including compute, storage, networking, and artificial intelligence.

The move to bring Oracle’s database infrastructure to Azure is a win-win for both companies. Oracle will be able to reach a wider audience of customers, while Azure will be able to offer its customers a wider range of database options.

The first phase of the integration will allow Oracle customers to run their databases on Azure using Oracle’s own software. In the future, Oracle plans to offer a fully managed database service on Azure.

The partnership comes just days after Oracle missed Q1 2023 revenue expectations and gave a downbeat rest-of-year outlook, sending its share price to suffer the worst one-day performance in 21 years. The move to partner with Microsoft could help Oracle regain some of its lost ground and expand its reach in the cloud market.

This move is a significant development in the cloud computing market. It shows that Oracle is committed to the cloud, and it also shows that Microsoft is serious about competing with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the database market.

The integration of Oracle’s database infrastructure with Azure is a major step forward for both companies. It will allow Oracle customers to take advantage of Azure’s scalability, security, and availability, while also giving Azure a stronger foothold in the database market.
