With Oracle cloud, whether public, private or hybrid, what you get is the same exact products at every level. The hardware is the same; software is the same; the engineering is the same. This stands in stark contrast to all our competitors. What they offer you is different products for private cloud and public cloud; different architectures, different standards, and different skills needed to manage the two environments.One of the most repeated Cloud use cases is application development and testing. When developing new applications, ideally the test environment will be as close as possible to the eventual real world environment. This guarantees that the application will scale and perform the same way you in production as it did in development.Our competitors cloud offerings use commodity hardware, cobbled together with an eye on the bottom line. Testing in such an environment simply cannot guarantee real-world results. Oracle Cloud Storage is built on the same architectures, to the same standards as Oracle on-premise storage – all of which you can manage using Oracle Enterprise Manager with the same exact DBA skills you’re already using.
