What you'll learn

  • Learn how Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's architecture makes it the right place to run compute-intensive partner applications


In addition to powerful database technologies, Oracle has long been a leader in customer relationship management, human resources, point of sale, and enterprise resource planning applications for the enterprise. And now the company has built a cloud that’s optimized from the ground up for these applications, leading partner solutions, and much more.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers superior performance and lower pricing than competing clouds or on-premises deployments. Plus, Oracle is committed to open standards, so customers can pursue the hybrid cloud and multicloud strategies that make sense for them. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is purpose-built to support any and all enterprise workloads—including the most demanding and compute-intensive high-performance computing and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads from Oracle and its partner community.

Ben Lackey details Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s powerful architecture and its robust partner ecosystem and discusses Oracle’s commitment to openness—and what that means for customers. He then demonstrates how to use Terraform to deploy partner solutions like, Cloudera, DataStax, and Confluent and how to use partner tools in conjunction with Oracle offerings to make your business smarter.

This session is sponsored by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
