Oracle Cloud is a cloud computing service provided by Oracle Corporation that offers servers, storage, networking, applications, and services over a worldwide network of managed data centers.

This platform supports a wide range of open standards (SQL, Spark, Hadoop, Kafka, etc.) and a wide range of programming languages, databases, tools, and frameworks, including Oracle-specific, Open Source, and third-party software and systems.

Oracle's cloud infrastructure was made generally accessible (GA) on October 20, 2016, under the moniker "Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services." The firm offers Virtual Machine Instances that cater to various workloads and performance characteristics. Oracle Cloud added AMD-powered bare metal instances in 2018, followed by Ampere Cloud-native CPUs in 2021. This platform solution includes adapters for integrating on-premise and cloud apps.

The Oracle Cloud Platform includes identity and security solutions for safe access, monitoring hybrid cloud environments, and meeting IT governance and compliance needs. Oracle purchased NetSuite, the first cloud computing company, in 2016. Oracle became the first cloud firm when it paid $9.3 billion in April 2015. It became the cloud infrastructure provider for Zoom, an online and video conference platform, in April 2017. Nissan announced the move of its high-performance computing (HPC) workloads to Oracle Cloud.
