LAS VEGAS, 18 October 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Oracle Cloud World — Oracle today announced Oracle Alloy, a new cloud infrastructure platform that enables service providers, integrators, independent software vendors (ISVs) and other organizations such as financial institutions or telecommunications providers to become cloud providers and roll out new cloud services to their customers. With Alloy, these organizations can offer a complete set of cloud services, brand and tailor the experience, and package additional value-added services and applications to meet the specific needs of their markets and industry verticals. These organizations can also use Alloy independently in their own data centers and have full control over operations to help meet specific regulatory requirements.
Service providers, integrators, and ISVs partner with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to provide applications and services tailored to specific industries, markets, and regulatory or government requirements. To help these partners leverage the unprecedented business opportunities, scale and performance of the cloud and innovate at the speed of hyperscalers, Alloy will enable them to become cloud providers and innovate faster with more customization and control. For example, with Alloy, partners will be able to serve the public sector and other industries that want to keep workloads in-country and operate their clouds independently. In addition, Alloy will enable partners who host customers in their own data centers to unlock new opportunities for growth outside of the public cloud.
“Giving our partners and customers more choice has long been a key focus of OCI. Today, we’re going one step further by giving our partners the ability to become cloud providers so they can build new services faster and address specific markets and regulatory requirements, ” so Clay Magouyrk, Executive Vice President, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “As cloud providers, our partners have more control over the customer experience for their targeted customer or industry, including where their workloads reside and how their cloud is operated.”
“Oracle Alloy’s ability to extend OCI’s many infrastructure and platform services into partner-controlled environments can have great appeal for end customers, who increasingly want cloud environments that live closer to them, whether for performance, increasing data sovereignty or simply to leverage familiar relationships with existing trusted service providers,” said Chris Kanaracus, Director of Research, IDC. “They also want cloud services tailored to their industries. Also, at IDC, we increasingly see the cloud as not something tied to a specific location, but rather a consistent operating model for IT. Oracle Alloy reflects these trends.”
Offers all OCI public cloud services for partners
Alloy is a platform that offers the same 100+ infrastructure and platform services available in OCIs public cloud. As a result, partners can go to market with a pre-integrated hardware and software platform deployed in their own data centers. This enables the potential to enter new markets and generate new revenue streams with cloud services already proven with thousands of customers worldwide.
“We are excited about Oracle’s vision to allow partners and customers to further manage and customize cloud resources, which will provide broader access to public cloud innovation across the cloud continuum. Accelerate cloud adoption, while supporting our customers’ unique industry, market, and regulatory needs, will create new types of business value,” said David WoodGlobal Strategy Lead, Accenture Cloud First.
Full control over customization and packaging
Oracle Alloy enables partners to offer cloud services under their own brand with control over commercial terms, customer relationships and touch points. Suppliers can customize OCI console with its own branding and tailor customer alerts, alerts, SDKsand documentation. In addition, partners can set their own prices, price cards, account types and discount plans. They can also define support structure and service levels. With built-in financial management functions from Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP The Oracle Alloy offering enables partners to manage the customer lifecycle, including invoicing and invoicing the customers.
Develop new value-added cloud services and apps faster
Oracle Alloy will offer software and hardware extensibility. Benefit from the same developer, UX, devopsand safety tools currently used to build OCI native services, partners can build their own cloud services tailored to the needs of specific markets or industries. They can also bring specific hardware devices, such as specific types of computers or mainframes, to Alloy and offer new cloud services based on them. OCI was designed to accommodate a diverse set of underlying hardware – now partners can take advantage of this architecture to serve their customers.
“As the first customer of the OCI Dedicated Region, Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (NRI) currently runs two of our most critical financial applications: BESTWAY and T-STAR, hosted on a high-performance, secure and scalable cloud platform, provided by Oracle and powered by NRI with a high level of control to meet strict security, data sovereignty and regulatory requirements.We see Oracle Alloy as a valuable new offering that will not only make it easier for our customers to build and run their own applications and services, but also enables us to better integrate our own financial applications and our customers’ systems. Oracle Alloy has the potential to help us further improve business value for our financial services customers,” said Tomoshiro Takemoto, CEO of NRI. .
Inward globally, operate locally
Oracle Alloy partners will have the ability to operate their cloud platform independently. They can control cloud operations to help meet customer or business needs, such as regulatory requirements that are not met by the public cloud for specific industries or markets. This includes the location of their data center and how it is staffed and accessible, requirements to run specific versions of software and control when they are updated, and the ability to integrate customer support and billing with existing processes.
