More than 80% of enterprises use a combination of Microsoft and Oracle to run their business. As organizations look to move those computing workloads out of their own data centers and into the cloud, or to build new cloud-native applications, they naturally want to mix and match services from Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure to get the best fit for a given project or workload, without learning new skills, rewriting applications, or rearchitecting systems. A new Oracle and Microsoft agreement simplifies the elements needed to run such cross-cloud workloads, such as integrated authentication, high-speed data interconnects, and a unified security model.
One benefit to this agreement is when an organization runs interdependent application workloads, such as an inventory management application based on Microsoft that needs to work closely with a supply chain application based on Oracle. Today, such applications might run on adjacent server racks within a single corporate data center. In the cloud, the company may run the inventory application on Azure, while the supply chain application runs on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute and Oracle Exadata database in the Oracle Cloud—and those two applications still must talk to each other and share critical operating data about every transaction.
