The combination of cloud and on-premises services is always beneficial if someone has invested in Oracle’s cloud.
It’s all about the reason why Thomas Kurian left Oracle and try another founding ship i.e. Google cloud platform. If reports are to be believed Kurian butted heads with his boss to make Oracle products more readily available on the competitive cloud platform. It is more beneficiary for the Oracle customers in compared to the one who wanted to use competitive products.
At KubeCon, last week the Oracle Cloud Native Framework was announced by the company mainly designed for those organizations which are looking to build the Hybrid cloud architecture across both on-premise infrastructure and public cloud. Oracles efforts are best within the cloud when compared to its competitors such as IBM and Microsoft. Oracle enjoys the benefit of having its own legacy system and the customers who are already interested to move to the cloud platform as well. In that regard, Oracle is really doing a great job.
Oracle’s basic IaaS platform i.e. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is where the public cloud part of Oracle Cloud Native Framework connects, allowing different organizations to develop and initiate different applications in Oracle’s cloud data centers.
On the other side, Oracle cloud Native Framework in case of on-premises uses Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment which is mainly built on the Oracle Linux platform. The platform which is modified by Oracle originally belongs to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Marketed originally as “Unbreakable Linux” the platform does not involvement by Red Hat at the time when the modification was made.
Oracle modified its kernel in order to improve its security but along with that the company also polluted the platform with the open source community forever. Oracle managed to enhance MySQL and also turned the Java EE to its standard body, but never got any credit for the modification it brought into the platform.
Oracle on timely manner has managed to bring pace to its existing cloud platform. The Oracle Cloud Native Framework is mainly built using the standards that are developed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). These are the standards which are commonly used by cloud computing vendors. This includes Resource Manager for provisioning Oracle Cloud Infrastructure resources and services, Oracle Functions, a new serverless cloud service built on the open source Fn Project, Notification Service, Monitoring and Events services for monitoring and analysis of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
CNCF also developed the Kubernetes container orchestration spec, while six new cloud-native Kubernetes services were introduced by Oracle including resource, monitoring, management, notifications, and streaming.
