Oracle services help you mix cloud and on-premises software

With a deployment portability feature, you can migrate your integration platform from the cloud to on-premises and back again

For all the talk about cloud computing, it's a rare enterprise that doesn't still use at least some on-premises software. With that reality in mind, Oracle on Monday rolled out two new services designed to help companies integrate the diverse pieces of those mixed environments.

Oracle SOA Cloud Service and Oracle API Manager Cloud Service are both new additions to Oracle Cloud Platform for Integration, the database giant's suite of services aimed at helping users integrate on-premises and cloud applications.

Built on Oracle's SOA Suite, which taps the concepts of service-oriented architecture, Oracle SOA Cloud Service provides easy provisioning, simplified management, automated upgrades and the ability to easily scale out, Oracle said. The result is that integration developers can quickly develop and deploy APIs and integration projects, it said.

With a deployment portability feature, Oracle SOA Cloud Service also supports hybrid integration, enabling users to migrate their integration platform from the cloud to on-premises and back again as business requirements change.

That portability feature is particularly useful for organizations that want to move their integration workloads to the cloud and perform development and testing there, but deploy production on-premises, Oracle said.

Targeting organizations that need to quickly build or mobile-enable existing applications, integrate with the cloud or connect Internet of Things (IoT) devices with existing systems, meanwhile, Oracle API Manager Cloud Service enables developers to create new custom APIs and expose them to internal or external consumers in a secure way, the company said.

The two new cloud services join Oracle Integration Cloud, which was announced in June, among the company's integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) services. Pricing information was not immediately available.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
