Use Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Enterprise Linux to build enterprise-grade solutions in the cloud, leveraging the virtually unlimited compute power and storage of Amazon Web Services (AWS). Hosting Oracle-based solutions in AWS enables you to use proven database and middleware offering within a proven cloud computing platform, providing greater reliability and performance than hosting solutions on your own hardware. Together, Amazon and Oracle provide businesses with a scalable, reliable, and cost-effective business application platform.
Oracle customers can now license Oracle Database 11g, Oracle Fusion Middleware, and Oracle Enterprise Manager to run in the AWS cloud computing environment. Oracle customers can also use their existing software licenses on Amazon EC2 with no additional license fees. And for on-premise Oracle installations, AWS offers a dependable and secure off-site backup location that integrates seamlessly with Oracle RMAN tools.
Oracle has delivered a set of free Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), to make it easy for customers to get started deploying Oracle solutions on Amazon EC2. Developers can take advantage of the provisioning and automated software deployment in these AMIs to rapidly build applications using Oracle’s popular development tools such as Oracle Application Express, Oracle JDeveloper, Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse and Oracle Workshop for WebLogic.
