Wade Tyler Millward
Oracle Alloy, a beta for Oracle Database 23c and a beta for MySQL HeatWave Lakehouse were some of the biggest announcements.
Oracle Alloy is a new platform for service providers, systems integrators and ISVs to offer cloud services.
Users can leverage Alloy in their own data centers and control its operations and regulatory requirements, according to Oracle. Users can serve public sector customers, for example, that have to keep workloads domestic and operate clouds independently.
Alloy allows for a customizable Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console with the partner’s own branding, with tailored customer alerts and documentation. Partners set the pricing, rate cards, account types, discount schedules, service levels and support structures, according to Oracle.
