Oracle’s New Service Turns Cloud Computing ‘Inside-Out’ - The CIO Report - WSJ

Partly cloudy

"The service, called Oracle Cloud at Customer, allows companies to place an Oracle cloud server within their own data center, essentially turning one of the basic concepts of cloud computing inside-out, according to Thomas Kurian, president of Oracle product development, who spoke to CIO Journal in an interview. The company is expected to formally announce the product later Thursday at Oracle CloudWorld, a customer event in Washington, D.C.

The setup is a hybrid cloud structure that allows a company to run whatever workloads it chooses on premises or in the Oracle cloud, with a common set of tools, APIs, and experiences. The workloads can shift between the environments. Oracle says it would be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the server, just as it would be for customers of more standard, public cloud services."
