The advantages of the cloud are increasingly clear. But less clear is the path that companies should take to move to the cloud. By recently expanding AOBG to include Oracle IaaS into the platform, Accenture conducted a series of performance tests on various Oracle IaaS and PaaS cloud solutions, along with other commonly used solutions, both on-premises and cloud-based.
Accenture set out to help answer two key questions that executives are facing today: Is the cloud ready to handle enterprise-grade solutions? And is it going to be cost-effective?
Accenture answered these key questions and found the Oracle Cloud solutions delivered more than three times the performance of other solutions, and demonstrated that they could handle more than five times the transactions per dollar. The test results showed that Oracle Cloud solutions provide a cost-effective approach to handling enterprise workloads; and in a larger sense, the results underscore the fact that the cloud has evolved into an attractive mainstream technology for businesses. Our research report details database performance and insights into the real-world feasibility of putting critical systems on the cloud.
The tests were an independent study conducted by the Accenture Enkitec Group, which has one of the largest concentrations of senior talent in Oracle database and engineered systems in the world, and has completed well over 600 Oracle Exadata implementations worldwide. The Oracle Cloud tests were conducted at the group’s Oracle Innovation Center in Dallas, Texas, and drew on experts from around the globe.
