Microsoft has announced a partnership with Oracle. The two companies will connect their clouds to ensure that users can move information seamlessly between the two networks. The connection will also include identity interoperability.

Scott Guthrie,  executive vice president of Microsoft’s Cloud and AI division said: “as the cloud of choice for the enterprise, with over 95% of the Fortune 500 using Azure, we have always been first and foremost focused on helping our customers thrive on their digital transformation journeys.

With Oracle’s enterprise expertise, this alliance is a natural choice for us as we help our joint customers accelerate the migration of enterprise applications and databases to the public cloud.”

This merge is an unusual one for Oracle as cloud networks generally compete for leadership. However Oracle is far from becoming one of the major leaders, remaining several paces behind the likes of AWS, Azure, or Google. This partnership will allow Oracle to offer its services on Azure, while retaining its data-base on the Oracle cloud.

Don Johnson, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) said: “The Oracle Cloud offers a complete suite of integrated applications for sales, service, marketing, human resources, finance, supply chain and manufacturing, plus highly automated and secure Generation 2 infrastructure featuring the Oracle Autonomous Database.

“Oracle and Microsoft have served enterprise customer needs for decades. With this alliance, our joint customers can migrate their entire set of existing applications to the cloud without having to re-architect anything, preserving the large investments they have already made.”
