Microsoft and Oracle leaders discuss additional collaboration
Hear how the partnership provides choice and flexibility for Azure and Oracle customers.
Accelerate your cloud adoption with Microsoft and Oracle
For more than two decades, Microsoft and Oracle have collaborated to ensure our software works together seamlessly on premises and in the cloud.
Run your Oracle Database and enterprise applications—including JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Oracle Retail, and Oracle WebLogic Server—on Oracle Linux, Windows Server, and other supported operating systems in Azure.
For solutions that require Oracle Autonomous Database and Oracle Exadata Database Service, use a multicloud approach with the Oracle Database Service for Azure to easily provision and access database services that run in the Oracle Cloud.
