Use Cases

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides data storage options for a wide spectrum of applications from small websites to the most demanding enterprise applications.

Highest Performance, Lowest Latency Workloads – Local NVMe SSD

When the ultimate in performance is required, local NVMe SSD’s provide extreme storage performance for VM’s and bare metal compute instances. Examples include relational databases, data warehousing, big data, analytics, AI and HPC applications.

High Performance Workloads with Large Data Sets – Block Volumes

High performance, persistent storage for a wide range of application workloads. Block volumes can scale to 1 PB per compute instance. Typical workloads include NoSQL databases, Hadoop/HDFS applications, IoT and eCommerce applications. See Block Volumes.

Scalable, Highly Available, Shared File System – File Storage

Easy to implement file-system that can be shared across many applications from all operating systems. Start small and scale as data grows. Perfect for migration of on-premises applications, media management, content management, and web applications. See File Storage.

Store Any Kind of Data, Access from the Internet – Object Storage

Scalable, affordable, reliable, and durable storage of files, data, photos and other media types. Typical workloads include media archives, data lakes, and data protection applications like backup and restore. See Object Storage.

Low Cost, Longterm Retention of Any Kind of Data – Archive Storage

Extremely reliable and durable object storage at one tenth of the cost of Oracle Object Storage. Using the same APIs as Object Storage. Archive storage frequently plays a role in data lifecycle management and replaces traditional offsite storage. See Archive Storage.

Convenient Data Migration to the Cloud – Data Transfer Service

Securely move data from on-premises datacenters to the cloud, whether a few terabytes or petabytes. This service is usually used to reduce data migration times from weeks or months to just hours. See Data Transfer Service.
