Learn About Signing Up for an Oracle Cloud Subscription

Oracle Cloud is one of the few cloud providers that can offer a complete set of cloud services to meet all your enterprise computing needs.

Use Oracle Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings to quickly set up the virtual machines, storage, and networking capabilities you need to run just about any kind of workload. Your infrastructure is managed, hosted, and supported by Oracle.

Use Oracle Platform as a Service offerings to provision ready-to-use environments for your enterprise IT and development teams, so they can build and deploy applications, based on proven Oracle databases and application servers.

Use Oracle Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings to run your business from the Cloud. Oracle offers cloud-based solutions for Human Capital Management, Enterprise Resource Planning, Supply Chain Management, and many other applications, all managed, hosted, and supported by Oracle.

Signing up for Oracle Cloud is easy, and you can choose from several subscriptions. Depending on the subscription you choose, you can sign up on the Oracle Cloud website, or you can contact Oracle Sales. A sales representative can help ensure that you get the services you need to complete your task or your solution.

Read about the different ways that you can sign up, and then select the best option for your cloud computing needs.

Get Started with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers high-performance compute capabilities (as physical hardware instances) and storage capacity in a flexible overlay virtual network that is securely accessible from your on-premises network.

Use the Oracle Cloud website to estimate your cloud usage and costs for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services and to sign up for an Oracle Cloud account. If you already have Oracle software licenses for services such as Oracle Database, Oracle Middleware, or Oracle Analytics, you can reuse them when subscribing to Oracle Platform Cloud Services (Oracle PaaS). This is called Bring Your Own License (BYOL).

Most Oracle Cloud services are designed to run in an Oracle Cloud account with Oracle Identity Cloud Service. This means that the service uses Oracle Identity Cloud Service to manage users and control access to cloud services. However, some Oracle Cloud services still rely on Oracle Identity and Access Management or their own identity management systems for the same purposes.

Get Started with Oracle Cloud Applications

You can order Oracle Cloud Applications (Software as a Service) offerings by contacting Oracle Sales.

After your order is processed, you can then activate your services. Once you have the entitlements in your account, you can provision these services from the Applications Console dashboard before your users can start using them.
