Exadata Cloud at Customer uniquely combines the world's #1 database technology and Exadata, the most powerful database platform, with the simplicity, agility and elasticity of a cloud-based deployment. It is identical to Oracle's Exadata Cloud Service, but located in customers' own data centers and managed by Oracle Cloud experts, thus enabling a consistent Exadata cloud experience for customers – whether on-premises, or in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure data centers.
Customers that already own database and database option licenses can choose to deploy them on Exadata Cloud at Customer to minimize costs. Customers that do not have existing database licenses can choose to use Oracle Database Enterprise Edition Extreme Performance which enables every Oracle Database feature and option, ensuring highest performance, best availability, most effective security and simplest management. All Exadata features are included in both cases. Databases deployed on Exadata Cloud at Customer are 100% compatible with existing on-premises databases, and databases that are deployed in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
