Learn key strategies to optimize your high performance, low latency and data intensive workloads in the cloud

A critical step in accelerating classified missions is selecting the right cloud platform for the job, one that enables you to create decision advantage and maintain vigilance against ever-evolving cyber threats while balancing cost and time-to-mission pressures.

The U.S. Government has granted Oracle Cloud an Authority to Operate (ATO) for classified workloads, allowing defense and intelligence organizations a unique opportunity to leverage the latest commercial innovations to implement higher performance cloud capabilities with more favorable economics across classification levels.

Watch this webinar to learn key strategies to optimize your high performance, low latency and data intensive workloads in the cloud by:
  • Unlocking the power of data by architecting solutions that enable real-time decision making, create mission advantage and enable AI, by consolidating data from the edge to enterprise.
  • Delivering better performance and cost advantage to your high-performance compute workloads and GPU AI model training.
  • Accelerating migration of VMWare environments while minimizing cost and disruption and maintaining complete control and security.
  • Staying ahead of adversaries and cyber-threats by ensuring security is built in, not bolted on.
Oracle Cloud’s National Security Regions (ONSRs) deliver significant cost advantage and predictable price parity across classification levels and no egress fees. Oracle Cloud is mission cloud.
