Oracle Cloud VMware Solution and Features


Oracle Cloud VMware Solution (OCVS) provides a customer-managed, native VMware-based cloud environment hosted in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Oracle Cloud VMware Solution (OCVS) will allow you to spin up a VMware SDDC in the Oracle cloud with total control. VMware SDDC provisioning is completely automated, eliminating the operational overhead necessary to set up a new data center.

VMware vCenter, ESXi Host, vSAN, and NSX-T make up a single SDDC. Additionally, it includes the VMware HCX, which enables smooth workload migration to the cloud and lets you extend your on-premises data center to the Oracle cloud.

Customers can use Oracle Cloud VMware Solution (OCVS) to transfer VMware workloads to Oracle Cloud without altering them. Customers maintain their current VMware-based tools, processes, and regulations while gaining scalability and agility. Customers have complete control over their VMware deployments while utilizing Oracle Cloud Infrastructure features.

Oracle Cloud VMware Solution (OCVS) Features

VMware Cloud Verified

Customers can use the Oracle Cloud VMware Solution for self-service provisioning and have full administrative privileges, including root access. Root access grants you complete control over your computer’s hardware and software.

Leverage adjacent Oracle Cloud services

Modernize a portion or all of your application stacks with local access to Container Engine for Kubernetes and Prophet Capabilities. Increase benefit levels and lower overhead with a diverse cloud database cluster that includes Prophet Exadata, Autonomous Data Stockroom, Independent Exchange Handling, Prophet NoSQL Database, and others.

Migrate VMware estate

Customers can use the Oracle Cloud VMware Solution to migrate VMware workloads to the Oracle Cloud without changing them. Customers are growing in size and agility while continuing to use existing VMware-based tools, processes, and policies.

Ease of operations

Depend on a single VMware detail that works both on-premises and in the cloud. Dodge’s exertion went through porting applications, refactoring code, or settling arrangement differences.

Use the same VMware tools

On-premises VMware-based applications can be managed in the same way on Prophet Cloud—using a single set of coordinates. Use your existing skill sets with the on-premises tools you’re already familiar with, such as vSphere, vCenter Server, vSAN, NSX, and HCX. Improve your tried-and-true on-premises IT sending structures and forms. Create your cloud environment to work in tandem with your on-premises environment.

High-performance, elastic, and verified

Prophet Cloud VMware Solution’s uncovered metal compute occurrences give customers at the slightest 156 centers, the most elevated CPU center tally accessible for any VMware-based solution within the advertise today.

Remember the VMware Service is “native” to OCI and can be deployed in all locations from day 0

Cloud VMware Solution pricing

Customers have the selection of deploying Oracle Cloud VMware Solution (OCVS) infrastructure with the pliability to consume VMware on their terms. Prices are available for a one-year or three-year commitment with discounts, monthly and hourly rate is out there.

One of the benefits is with Oracle is that they offer uniform pricing across all global regions. Oracle’s approach simplifies cost management and eliminates billing surprises.
