    Oracle Platform as a Service (PaaS) / Database as a Service (DaaS) / Application Development in the Cloud
    • Utilizing PaaS will reduce cost, reduce cycles for application development, and position you to gain access to the marketplace faster. In addition to taking advantage of DaaS, it allows you to move lighter database workloads to the cloud while freeing up valuable space for more intensive workloads on premise.

    Oracle Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
    • Oracle Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Private Cloud delivers Oracle Engineered Systems hardware and support. Oracle IaaS Private Cloud combines the security and control of on-premise systems with unique features of cloud computing, including Capacity on Demand, which enables businesses to access and pay for peak CPU capacity only when needed.
    BI Cloud Service Update
    • A best-in-class analytics platform offering you the full array of intuitive BI tools you expect. Quickly combine data from any source and rapidly create BI applications for agile analysis. From executives to analysts to everyday dashboard users. In a browser or on-the-go with Mobile BI. Dozens of visualizations and advanced calculations available in a fast, friendly UI. The security, reliability, and performance you require, with the flexibility the business demands.
    Fusion MW Services
    • Middleware is an ideal area within your IT architecture to take advantage of the grid/cloud benefits of efficiency and flexibility. As the layer of infrastructure just below your applications and SOA services, middleware provides the right level of granularity of resources to be pooled and shared to enable desired control without undesired complexity.In contrast to the traditional “stack” approach to middleware architecture, where, for example in the case of Java applications, each application runs on its own instance of an application server with it’s own JVM on its own OS, an application grid infrastructure allows different resources at the application server level such as object memory to be shared, allocated, and dynamically adjusted across a set of application needs.
    Viscosity North America’s Deployment and Delivery Models:
    • Cloud application migration services
    • On-premise private cloud infrastructures
    • Off-premise private cloud infrastructures deployed at either a customer data center or a secure host provider
    • Hybrid cloud infrastructures
    • Oracle Cloud DBaaS, PaaS IaaS and Oracle SaaS applications
