AppDev and Integration Major Announcements

Link: https://blogs.oracle.com/enterprisearchitecture/appdev-and-integration-major-announcements

I am writing this blog to quickly highlight several announcements that Oracle just made (and it's not even Open World)!

Oracle just put this press release out on the next Autonomous Cloud services:

  • Oracle Autonomous Integration Cloud
  • Autonomous Visual Builder Cloud

Further, the ability to use Oracle's Platform for modern Cloud Native application development has takes another big leap forward with these announcements:

  1. Announcing General Availability version of the WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator  -The Operator, first released in February as a Technology Preview version, simplifies the creation and management of WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3 domains on Kubernetes.  The GA operator supports additional WebLogic features, and is certified and supported for use in development and production. 
  2. OKE is GA – (docs) – Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes is a fully-managed, scalable, and highly available service that you can use to deploy your containerized applications to the cloud. Use Container Engine for Kubernetes (sometimes abbreviated to just OKE) when your development team wants to reliably build, deploy, and manage cloud-native applications.
  3. OCIR is GA – (docs) – Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Registry is an Oracle-managed registry that enables you to simplify your development to production workflow. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Registry makes it easy for you as a developer to store, share, and manage development artifacts like Docker images.

 

Exciting times. The prediction I made about the importance of factoring Artificial Intelligence/Machine-learning into your Enterprise Architecture are becoming more and more true. Luckily, Oracle is helping to make AI/ML a practical reality as it imbues its Cloud Services with intelligence that make them even more impactful to your company or agency's mission.
