Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud connect
Microsoft and Oracle are partnering in the cloud, allowing their customers to run enterprise workloads across Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud. A direct network connection and identity interoperability between the two clouds will also allow customers to seamlessly migrate workloads and data, the companies said.
Users can run one part of a workload within Azure and another part in Oracle Cloud. The move also means Azure services such as Analytics and AI can be connected to Oracle Cloud services like Autonomous Database. Users could, for example, run Oracle JD Edwards on Azure against an Oracle Autonomous Database that is running on Exadata infrastructure in the Oracle Cloud.
