With fresh and innovative infrastructure offering Oracle is gunning for AWS

With fresh and innovative infrastructure offering Oracle is gunning for AWS

Larry Ellison has a message for Amazon Web Services “Oracle is going to give Amazon a run for its money in the cloud market,”

Amazon’s lead is over,” he said during his keynote address at the OpenWorld conference in San Francisco. “Amazon’s going to have serious competition going forward, the company he co-founded is launching a set of new cloud datacenters that are aimed at providing more powerful compute instances to help it compete against the likes of AWS, Azure and other cloud players. The generation 2 datacenters will be capable of bringing a variety of performance improvements to customers who want to run high-performance workloads in the cloud.

Ellison showed off a new Oracle Dense Cloud IO bare metal cloud server offering that will provide developers with 36 CPU cores, 512GB of D-RAM, and 28.8TB of SSD storage. That’s a ton of compute capacity; all aimed at high-performance enterprise workloads. It’s more power than Amazon offers with one of its most powerful instance, the i2.8xlarge. All of that comes at a cost of US$5.40 an hour, which is cheaper than what Amazon charges.

Deepak Patil, a vice president of product development at Oracle in an interview said “The company was able to compete with Amazon on price and performance for three reasons: the different way that it architects its infrastructure, its access to the latest and greatest hardware and the fact that its cloud platform is built on top of Oracle-made hardware.”

To this, Oracle Vice President of Software Development Mark Cavage said “The Company plans to charge a flat 7.5 cents per instance hour per core across all of its compute offerings. In addition to its bare metal options, the company will also offer four- and eight-core virtual machines at launch. By the end of the year, Oracle will also make one- and two-core VMs available.” 

Available from Oracle’s western US cloud region, the all new infrastructure offerings is based in Phoenix, Arizona.
