Verizon Enterprise Solutions and Oracle announced they will enable customers to use Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware on Verizon’s cloud infrastructure, including the new Verizon Cloud, and pay for access on an hourly basis.
Customers can bring their own Oracle licenses to the Verizon platform or purchase Verizon cloud services, which already include Oracle licenses.
Current Verizon eCloud and Managed Hosting customers can also be able to use Oracle software on a per-hour cost basis and can leverage existing Oracle licenses.
This is critical for global 1,000 companies in industries like financial services, retail and energy as they migrate from on-premises solutions to hybrid or cloud-based environments.
With Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware on Verizon Cloud, customers can leverage existing assets, gain efficiencies in the cloud and pay for only what they need on an hourly basis rather than having to purchase perpetual licenses.
Verizon Cloud, announced in October 2013 and currently in beta, provides clients with performance, flexibility and control in their cloud environment.
