To help customers take advantage of its growing ecosystem of partner applications and solutions, Oracle has announced the inclusion of the Oracle Cloud Marketplace within the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console. The Oracle Cloud Marketplace is an online store for thousands of Oracle and partner-built business applications and services, including FireEye, HighJump, and ICS Financial Systems.
As part of this announcement, Oracle is delivering new ‘click to launch’ functionality directly within Oracle Cloud Marketplace allowing customers to quickly deploy turn-key applications and images via a Partner Image Catalog.
With this addition, partners can easily get their technical and business solutions, including Fortinet Fortigate, Jenkins by Bitnami, and Check Point CloudGuard, into the hands of customers for development, test, pilot, and production deployments. End-users can find, learn about, and deploy applications directly from the console and launch pre-installed servers to their Oracle Cloud Infrastructure environment in a few clicks.
“At Oracle, we continuously strive to make it easier for customers to explore, demo and launch applications in Oracle Cloud, whether they be innovative business applications from our growing ecosystem of partners or existing Oracle Applications. The integration between Oracle Cloud Marketplace and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, leveraging our new Partner Image Catalog capabilities, further validates our commitment to both customers and partners, helping them easily deliver the best possible business solutions,” said Kash Iftikhar, Vice President – Product and Strategy, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
To further promote discovery and learning, Oracle is enhancing the Oracle Cloud Jump Start program with the announcement of Jump Start Learning which offers anyone with a web browser, from beginner to advanced, instant access to self-paced, hands-on training modules for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. These offerings enable customers and partners to quickly learn how to use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Partners can also use Jump Start Learning to create their own training modules for their solutions running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
John Maddison, SVP – Products and Solutions, Fortinet, said, “We are delighted to support Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with Fortinet products. Customers now have instant access to launch Fortinet solutions like our Fortigate next-generation firewall within the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console. In just a few clicks customers can launch and use our award-winning firewall product in minutes.”
