In this interactive session we illustrate why Azure is a great cloud to run Oracle databases and applications. Confidently use Oracle Database Standard or Enterprise Editions supported by Oracle and certified by Oracle to run on Azure. Rely on field-tested reference architectures that can accelerate deployment times while reducing risks. Build and deploy cloud native enterprise-class Java applications on Oracle WebLogic Server in Azure and on Oracle Linux. We also review in detail some of the ‘lessons learned’ regarding Microsoft Azure and Oracle’s cloud interoperability based on early customer deployments and use cases.
