Oracle has announced the availability of its Exadata platform on its next-generation cloud infrastructure, which essentially means the company is providing Exadata as a Service. The Oracle Cloud infrastructure is a comprehensive set of integrated, subscription-based services that let businesses run any workload in an enterprise-grade cloud managed by Oracle. It enables self-provisioning of multiple bare metal servers in less than five minutes, with each supporting more than 4 million IOPS. It also allows block storage that scales linearly.
