Oracle has introduced two new additions to its Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) suite, the SOA Cloud Service and API Manager Cloud Service. The new tools supposedly simplify the process of integrating a business’s existing IT infrastructure with the cloud.
The Oracle SOA Cloud Service has been designed to provide automatic upgrades and an easier management process. It’s been equipped with the ability to quickly expand, allowing users to develop and send out APIs and integration projects at a faster rate. The tool also supports hybrid assimilation with its deployment portability function.
People can use it to transfer their workloads to the cloud and develop or test within the system. Coming to the API Manager Cloud Service, the feature lets developers create custom APIs and exposes them to internal or external customers. The process is secure and enables the company to create products for its end users.
According to Oracle, in order to stay ahead of the competition, organizations need to build or mobile-enable applications, combine with the cloud and connect IoT devices. Industries are increasingly using REST and SOAP-based APIs to mitigate risks. IT teams today are facing a wide range of challenges such as long lead times, inflexible capacity and expensive infrastructure management.
Amit Zavery, senior vice president of the cloud platform, thinks these problems extensively slow down projects. The Oracle SOA Cloud Service and Oracle API Manager Cloud Service are being put forward as solutions to the issues, as they allow integration developers to simplify the administration and configuration of the business’s platform.
Oracle Cloud currently has more than 70 million users and conducts nearly 33 billion transactions every day. It has a presence in 19 data centers across the globe and runs on over 54000 devices.
