The Framework also supports Oracle Functions, a new breakthrough serverless cloud service based on the open source Fn Project.
 
"By providing cloud native capabilities and offerings regardless of the deployment scenario and leveraging open standards established by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), Oracle, a platinum member of CNCF, is uniquely providing its customers with choice while meeting the broad deployment needs of developers." informed the company via a Press Release.
 
The framework also incorporates a set of OCI services built on Kubernetes, Oracle’s infrastructure-as-a-service, and the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE). The new offerings include functionality in serverless, streaming, resource management, observability and monitoring, notifications, and event-driven computing.
 
With Oracle Functions, the company says, you can easily deploy and execute function-based applications without the need to manage to compute infrastructure. Oracle Functions is Docker container-based and completely pay-per-use, so charges will apply only when functions are run. You can move workloads to an in-house, or alternative-cloud deployment of the container-based Fn Project.
 
"Kubernetes and containers are enabling CERN to improve the deployment of critical Java Applications to reduce maintenance tasks and focus more on developers' needs, including improving their experience with Oracle WebLogic Server. In this context, Oracle has provided us with an open source tool that has helped us decrease considerably the time needed to configure WebLogic. We are also working to take advantage of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and its Kubernetes offering to replace our disaster recovery solution for our databases and WebLogic," commented Antonio Nappi, DevOps Engineer for CERN.
