Oracle's database to run on Microsoft cloud platform

Published on .

Redwood City, Calif.—Oracle Corp. has formed a partnership to run its database and other products on Microsoft Corp.'s Azure Internet-based hosting service. Oracle will support versions of its database software and its Java programming language, among other products, through the online Azure service as well as through Microsoft's Hyper-V virtual operating system platform, the companies said in statement. Oracle products already run on the Amazon Web Services cloud platform. Oracle is increasingly shifting its applications to a subscription-based cloud model. Its cloud-based Eloqua marketing automation platform, acquired in December, is the centerpiece of the evolving Oracle Marketing Cloud that includes the company's Fusion CRM platform, Content Cloud and Social Cloud.
