Verizon (NASDAQ: VZ) Enterprise Solutions and Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) said they will enable customers to use Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware on Verizon´s cloud infrastructure, including the new Verizon Cloud, and pay for access on an hourly basis.
Customers can bring their own Oracle licenses to the Verizon platform or purchase Verizon cloud services, which already include Oracle licenses. Current Verizon eCloud and managed hosting customers can also be able to use Oracle software on a per-hour cost basis and can leverage existing Oracle licenses.
Verizon Cloud, announced in October 2013 and currently in beta, provides clients with performance, flexibility and control in their cloud environment. This agreement with Oracle demonstrates Verizon´s commitment to building an ecosystem of enterprise-class technologies, delivered as services on top of Verizon Cloud.
