Beyond the industry buzz around Oracle's groundbreaking Exadata Cloud@Customer service are hundreds of companies, big and small, that are finding it the obvious solution for bringing cloud innovation into their data centers
"As the benefits of cloud become ever more obvious, many businesses have felt held back by security and regulatory concerns from tapping the cloud's savings, flexibility, and innovation. Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer unleashes them. Here are three examples.
The IT team at McMaster University, which enrolls more than 31,000 students, was determined to get the elastic scalability benefits of cloud while keeping control of their data on-premises. 'The ability to scale up or down is great for the campus lifecycle calendar,' says Kevin de Kock, the school's director of enterprise applications and data systems, because students research, register for classes, and make changes in brief bursts of activity only a few times a year. De Kock's team supports Oracle's PeopleSoft Campus Solutions among other enterprise applications for students and staff of the university, located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada..."

Oracle is reinventing its GoldenGate real-time replication capability as a managed cloud service running in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) that is designed to provide event-based integration of operational and analytic databases, regardless of where they run
"Oracle has taken another step in rounding out its cloud managed services portfolio by adding its GoldenGate data integration service to the mix. The OCI GoldenGate service is a serverless offering that runs on the Oracle Cloud, providing an event-based approach to integrating operational and analytic databases between on-premises data centers and any public, private, or hybrid clouds.
GoldenGate, which has been typically employed with change-data-capture feeds for keeping different instances of databases across data centers or geographic locations in sync, has often been used for disaster recovery use cases with remote hot sites.
