Microsoft and Oracle today announced the new Oracle Database Service for Azure, bringing the enterprise-grade performance, availability, and automation of Oracle databases to Azure customers. With this new service, you can develop applications on Azure and then connect to the managed Oracle Database services such as Autonomous Database running on OCI.

With the new Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure, you can connect your Azure subscriptions to your OCI tenancy. Once done, this service can automatically configure everything required to link the two cloud environments and federates Azure Active Directory identities. You can also have a dashboard of your Oracle Database Services on OCI using Azure terminology and monitoring with Azure Application Insights.

The important thing to note here is that there are no charges for using the Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure, the Oracle Interconnect for Microsoft Azure or data egress or ingress when moving data between OCI and Azure. You need to pay only for the other Azure or Oracle services they consume, such as Azure Synapse or Oracle Autonomous Database.

“There’s a well-known myth that you can’t run real applications across two clouds. We can now dispel that myth as we give Oracle and Microsoft customers the ability to easily test and demonstrate the value of combining Oracle databases with Azure applications. There is no need for deep skills on both of our platforms or complex configurations—anyone can use the Azure Portal to get the power of our two clouds together,” said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
