Over the last two decades, thousands of customers have relied on Microsoft and Oracle software working well together to run their business-critical applications. As customers migrate applications and data to the cloud, they continue to look for joint solutions from their trusted software partners. Since 2019, when Oracle and Microsoft partnered to deliver the Oracle Interconnect for Microsoft Azure, hundreds of organizations have used the secure and private interconnections in eleven global regions.
The two companies are extending this collaboration to further simplify the multi-cloud experience with the announcement of the Oracle Database Service for Azure.
The Oracle Database Service for Azure builds upon the core capabilities of the Oracle Interconnect for Azure and enables any customer to more easily integrate workloads on Azure with database services on OCI. 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. Customers will pay only for the other Azure or Oracle services they consume, such as Azure Synapse or Oracle Autonomous Database.
