Oracle unveils new infrastructure platform Oracle Alloy

At Oracle’s annual Oracle CloudWorld event the company has revealed a new cloud infrastructure platform for its customers

Oracle has announced a new cloud infrastructure platform, named Oracle Alloy, which will enable organisations to become cloud providers and roll out new cloud services to their customers. 

Service providers, integrators, and ISVs partner with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to provide applications and services tailored to specific industries. To help these partners capitalise on business opportunities, scale, and performance of the cloud, Alloy will enable them to innovate faster with more customisation and control.  

“Giving our partners and customers more choice has long been a primary focus for OCI. Today, we’re going one step further by providing our partners with the option to become cloud providers so that they can build new services faster and address specific market and regulatory requirements. As cloud providers, our partners have more control over the customer experience for their targeted customer or industry, including where the workloads reside and how their cloud is operated,” said Clay Magouyrk, Executive Vice President, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

With Alloy, organisations will be able to offer a full set of cloud services, brand and tailor the experience, and package additional value-added services and applications to meet the specific needs of their markets and industry verticals. 

These organisations can also use Alloy independently in their own data centres and fully control its operations to help address specific regulatory requirements.

“Oracle Alloy's ability to extend OCI's many infrastructure and platform services to partner-controlled environments could have ample appeal for end-customers, who increasingly want cloud environments that live closer to them, whether for performance, growing data-sovereignty reasons or simply to leverage familiar relationships with existing trusted service providers. They also want cloud services tailored for their industries. Moreover, at IDC we increasingly see the cloud as not something tied to a specific location but rather a consistent operating model for IT. Oracle Alloy reflects these trends,” said Chris Kanaracus, research director, IDC.
