Oracle, Microsoft integrate cloud capabilities for deeper interoperability

Oracle and Microsoft have agreed to deepen interoperability of their clouds to allow users to run projects more easily across the two platforms, The Wall Street Journal reported July 20. 

The Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure will connect Oracle's database service directly to the Azure cloud, eliminating effort and technical expertise on the part of customers to make it work.

Four things to know about the new service:

  1. Oracle database users will be able to move data to Microsoft's Azure cloud and have access to Microsoft tools.

  2. No fees will be associated with data transfer between the two cloud platforms.

  3. The new service includes a dashboard with a single sign-on process which allows Oracle customers, who move workloads to Azure, to work in an Oracle-like environment and vice versa.

  4. The platform builds upon Oracle Interconnect for Microsoft Azure, an integration introduced in 2019. 

The service has been made available, on an early basis, to a number of companies.
