It enables you to have a tailored Oracle environment specifically for the high performance or big data analytical platforms that are proprietary to Oracle, while connecting to workloads that you have within the rest of our multi-cloud ecosystem, including UKCloud for Oracle Software – a multi-tenant cloud option for Oracle VMs.

The service is designed to be flexible and enables you to mix and match from a range of pre-defined options for each virtual machine and change them when required.
