Oracle announced on Tuesday the launch of its Oracle SD-WAN Orchestration Cloud (OSOC), which runs on its Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. OSOC, which is part of the Oracle SD-WAN portfolio, was designed to integrate multiple clouds while also managing traffic across networks.

Oracle SD-WAN Orchestration Cloud helps enterprises deploy, automate and operate sophisticated networks that connect to services that reside either within their facility or in a public cloud. With OSOC, enterprises no longer need to design, build and maintain their own high availability SD-WAN cores at their data centers, according to Oracle, which saves time and capex.

Oracle SD-WAN Orchestration Cloud can be deployed on premise at a customer's site or virtually in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure clouds. Organizations are spreading their data, workloads and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications across private and public clouds to ensure that they can access their data from anywhere. In addition, the coronavirus pandemic has led to a dramatic uptick in employees that are working from home or "working from anywhere."

“The recent increase in remote-work has accelerated the shift to a cloud-first model for enterprises, putting pressure on IT professionals to ensure application availability, performance and security in any public cloud,” said Andrew Morawski, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications, networks, in a statement. “With Oracle SD-WAN Orchestration Cloud, enterprises can rapidly design, deploy and maintain a SD-WAN across any IP network and any public cloud; freeing up IT to focus less on network management and more on strategic priorities."
