San Francisco, Sep 29 (IANS) Global software major Oracle has announced two new additions to its cloud platform for integration — a comprehensive set of integration services that enable users to quickly get on to on-premises and cloud-based applications.
The two new cloud services – “Oracle SOA Cloud” and “Oracle API Manager Cloud Services” – join its other iPaaS services, including “Oracle Integration Cloud” which was announced in June this year, the California-headquartered company said in a statement on Monday.
“The Oracle SOA Cloud and Oracle API Manager Cloud services enable our customers to provision integration and API management platforms for developers quickly and simplify administrative steps so they can accelerate innovation,” said Amit Zavery, senior vice president of Oracle Cloud Platform.
Using the industry leading “Oracle SOA Suite” as its foundation, “Oracle SOA Cloud Service” is a comprehensive and unified cloud-based integration platform that is built for developers’ diverse requirements.
It provides easy provisioning, simplified management, automated upgrades and the ability to easily scale out, enabling users to quickly develop and deploy Application programming interfaces (APIs) and integration projects to deliver innovative services faster.
Additionally, it supports hybrid integration with its deployment portability feature, enabling customers to easily migrate their integration platform from the cloud to on-premises and back again to support changing business requirements.
The portability feature is ideal for organisations that want to move their integration workloads to the cloud.
“Oracle’s iPaaS portfolio, which now includes Oracle SOA Cloud Service and Oracle API Manager Cloud Service, meets various integration requirements and supports multiple use cases that today’s competitive digital businesses need,” noted Ravi Gade, senior director (IT Applications) at Calix, a supplier of telecommunications access equipment for service providers.
In June, Oracle expanded its cloud service offerings with an emphasis on iPaaS (platform-as-a-service) as it launched 24 new technologies aimed at leap-frogging over rival brands like Amazon, Microsoft and IBM.
“Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426 million worth of business in SaaS (software-as-a-service) and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That’s an industry record,” Oracle executive chairman Larry Ellison was quoted as saying.
