Azure Cloud Platform Gets a New Database

As more of us are using multiple clouds to avoid vendor lock-in, it’s nice to see the interoperability between Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

The new service connects Oracle’s database service directly to the Azure cloud, eliminating custom work that previously would have been required.

In practice, that means an Oracle database user can move data easily to the Microsoft Azure cloud and have access to Microsoft tools such as Azure Synapse, which analyzes the data, the companies said.

The Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure streamlines the service and should make it less difficult to get started and operate.
