Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

Built with Oracle applications in mind, OCI enables you to connect your IaaS applications to on-premises applications, third-party applications, data, and processes. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is designed for applications that require consistent high-performance, are business critical whilst removing the need for costly internal equipment. Each instance of OCI is hosted in a dedicated area where it is guaranteed that it is only 100% accessible by you and those that you chose to have access, meaning Oracle themselves cannot access unless you grant permission. 

Moreover, OCI enables you to predict your spend and budget accordingly by offering a fixed cost option that can be predictable rather than spending on new hardware if needed.  

Additionally, Symatrix offer a Migration Service for moving existing on-premise database(s) and application(s) to OCI to help with sizing costing and the decision between Bring Your Own License (BYOL) and Oracle Universal Credit (UC) system.
