Oracle Announces a New Hybrid Cloud Partnership With VMware

Oracle is aiming to make it extremely easy to shift your VMware workloads to the Oracle Cloud. In addition, it will provide you the capability to choose where your data will reside. This is an important feature for organizations concerned about data sovereignty.

Oracle said it has built a new system that enables joint customers to move VMware-based computing workloads to its cloud without rewriting any code, making Oracle the latest public cloud vendor to partner with VMware. The service is expected to be available in the first half of 2020.

Hybrid Control will be a key feature; this will allow VCenter to manage both on-premises and Oracle Cloud resources. This hybrid management includes the vSphere hypervisor, NSX virtual network software, and vSAN virtual storage software on Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure. It will also enable customers to run Oracle’s core services, including the Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Exadata Cloud Service, and Oracle Database Cloud on VMware’s infrastructure.

Hybrid Support

Oracle’s goal is to provide the most flexible options whatever versions of Oracle or VMware you are running. In addition, Oracle will provide technical support for its software running in VMware as well as several database versions in a hybrid model.


Be aware that this new partnership has not changed the Oracle licensing requirements for partitioning.

For existing customers heavily invested with Oracle running on VMware, it probably makes sense to run in the Oracle Cloud just from a control and management standpoint.

Make yourself familiar with Terraform to understand how to deploy your cloud resources and workloads with a DevOps approach.

Bottom Line

You will soon be able to run Oracle where it makes sense and with the ease of your VMware infrastructure.

Available support for various Oracle and VMware versions running in a hybrid model could be a more compelling reason to consider Oracle Cloud.
