it is being used to upgrade from our current ERP system to the next, which is completely cloud-based. Our servers (web, applications, databases, monitoring servers, etc.) will be maintained in Oracle's cloud infrastructure. Whether it will be a public or private cloud will depend on the type of environment, the interested parties and the facilities offered for both clouds.
IAAS (Infrastructure as a service) is not a customizable solution. It is a preconfigured system that sometimes adjusts to customer expectations but differs greatly in diversity. In addition, Oracle's private clouds are not delivered "as a service". This solution is a rental that can be modified, but is subject to hardware and software parameters, during a specific rental period.
Oracle's IAAS might work well for small organizations with less cloud computing and scalability requirements. This will result in less manual labor and considerable reduction in IT costs.
It has solved an important infrastructure problem because we no longer have to worry about managing the life cycle of the application or technology, and it can escalate the JDE ERP offer as users migrate to consolidation target instances from instances inherited.
