Oracle used OpenWorld to unveil new services for the Oracle Cloud and made them available for channel partners to offer customers on a resale or referral basis.
Thomas Kurian, Oracle executive vice president of product development, called the Oracle Cloud and its new services the "single most important project" on which Oracle is working.
Included in the new cloud services was Database Cloud, which provides users with a dedicated Oracle 11g or 12c database instance.
Oracle also introduced Java Cloud, which provides Oracle WebLogic Server clusters as a service for the deployment of Java applications.
Also new is Storage Cloud, a cloud-based storage offering, and Compute Cloud, which allows customers to package an application in a virtual machine and run it in the Oracle Cloud.
"These [services] will change the way you consume our software [and] use our software," Kurian said.
