 An Oracle White Paper May 2010
Oracle Cloud Computing
Executive Overview
Cloud computing is a significant advancement in the delivery of information technology and services.By providing on demand access to a shared pool of computing resources in a self-service, dynamically scaled and metered manner, cloud computing offers compelling advantages in speed, agility andefficiency. Today, cloud computing is at an early stage in its lifecycle, but it is also the evolution andconvergence of several trends that have been driving enterprise data centers and service providers overthe last several years.Cloud computing builds off a foundation of technologies such as grid computing, which includesclustering, server virtualization and dynamic provisioning, as well as SOA shared services and large-scale management automation. For the better part of a decade, Oracle has been the leader in theseareas with thousands of customer successes and high level of investment. Today, Oracle offers the
industry’s most c
omplete, open and integrated products and services to enable public, private andhybrid clouds.Oracle aims to make cloud computing fully enterprise-grade and supports both public and privatecloud computing to give customers choice. Oracle offers technology that enables organizations tobuild private clouds, leverage public clouds and provide cloud services to others. Oracle also offers abroad set of horizontal and industry applications that run in a shared services private cloud model as well as a public Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud model. This white paper provides an overview of 
Oracle’s cloud
computing strategy and how Oracle helpscustomers and partners plan their evolution and adoption of a cloud computing model.
Introduction to Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that canbe rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This definition from the National Institute of Standards
has gained broad support from the industry. The NIST definition of cloud computing describes five essential characteristics, three service modelsand four deployment models.
Five Essential Characteristics
On-demand self service
Users are able to provision, monitor and manage computing resources as needed without the help of human administrators
Broad network access
Computing services are delivered over standard networks andheterogeneous devices
Rapid elasticity
IT resources are able to scale out and in quickly and on an as needed basis
Resource pooling
IT resources are shared across multiple applications and tenants in anon-dedicated manner
IT resource utilization is tracked for each application and tenant,typically for public cloud billing or private cloud chargeback 
Three Service Models
Software as a Service (SaaS)
Applications delivered as a service to end-users typically through a Web browser. There are hundreds of SaaS service offerings available today, ranging from horizontal enterprise applications to specialized applications for specific industries, and
