Oracle to Overtake the Competition

Oracle to Overtake the Competition

Would you believe it if I told you that cloud computing and storage were first introduced in the 1960s? We all know that today we have the option to use several cloud-based services, such as Dropbox or Google drive, but Salesforce was the first to popularize this service in the late '90s. Nowadays, it impossible to imagine storing every single work-related file or document in physical storage or a hard disk. The risks associated with saving your files on a destructible device are apparent. That is why people flock to AWS, iCloud, or Oracle!

What is Oracle?

In the digital mainstream society, oracle is slowly and steadily gaining popularity. Meanwhile, the Oracle Corporation has been around since the 1980s, gaining traction and rapid growth immediately after going public. Today, companies like Exxon Mobil Corporation and McKesson Corporation use oracle ERP cloud for Enterprise resource planning. In their own words:

"Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides customers with high-performance computing and low-cost cloud storage options. Through on-demand local, object, file, block, and archive storage, Oracle Cloud addresses key storage workload requirements and use cases. Customers can use the storage gateway and data transfer service to safely and securely move their data to the cloud. Oracle Cloud Storage delivers consistent high performance and scalability. Customers will get Block Volumes that scale up to 1 PB, File Storage that can scale up to 8 EB, and local NVMe that scales to 2 TB".

Why use Oracle?

Before we even confer on why oracle is a great cloud service provider, it has to be mentioned that the cost is unbelievably low. It seems even more deficient when comparing it to AWS since their services are at least twice as expensive. I know what you're thinking; the price may reflect quality; however, oracle has double the performance value for the end-to-end workload. If, for some reason, this information is not enough for you to try Oracle, then let's touch on another important subject.

Safety First

Information you keep on your cloud is expected to be private. It's a fair assumption that no company or an individual would like their data to be leaked. We've seen countless cases of personal photographs being pirated from cloud-based services, iCloud being the most notorious one. AWS is no exception though, in March of 2020, thousands of users were affected by their cloud storage leak. Even the NSA had a slip-up with AWS storage bucket. Misconfigured AWS buckets have been faulted in massive data breaches, which is problematic.

The objective reality is that the cheaper and faster cloud-based service that oracle offers is safer and trusted by giant corporations. For us, we get many outsourced web development projects from clients all over the world, and we take safety and information sensitivity very seriously. This is why it's important to us to trust the cloud-based service we are using. Nowadays, Oracle is our top choice when it comes to pricing, performance, and safety.

If you ever consider outsourcing your web development project to us, you can be sure your sensitive information won't show up anywhere you don't want them to be.

Maybe someone can link this article to the NSA. In case they also have some "outsourced projects." Ha-ha!
