Oracle compute, storage and network services that we discussed earlier in this website are part of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
In this post we will briefly discuss about Oracle database cloud services which is part of Platform as a Service (PaaS). PaaS contains some of the platform services like Database, Business Analytics, Application Development (Java, Mobile,Messaging etc), Integration, Content and Collabration etc.
In simple words , Oracle Database Cloud Service offers elastic database services for application development, test and production deployment. The service delivers an easy to use web console user interface and RESTful API to provision and administer Oracle Database on Oracle Compute Cloud Offerings. When you create database deployments, Database Cloud Service creates compute nodes to host the database, using computing and storage resources provided by Oracle Compute Cloud Service. Additionally, it provides access to the compute nodes (and thus to the database) using networking resources provided by Oracle Compute Cloud Service.
