Salesforce.com and Oracle announced their partnership for cloud computing integration.
As per the nine-year partnership, Salesforce.com will standardize on the Oracle Linux operating system, Exadata engineered systems, the Oracle Database, and Java Middleware Platform.
Salesforce.com will also implement Oracle’s Fusion HCM and Financial cloud applications throughout the company.
Marc Benioff, chairman and CEO, salesforce.com, said: “Salesforce.com’s CRM integrated with Oracle’s Fusion HCM and Financial Cloud is the best of both worlds: the simplicity of salesforce.com combined with the power of Oracle.”
Larry Ellison, CEO, Oracle, said: “When customers choose cloud applications they expect rapid low-cost implementations; they also expect application integrations to work right out of the box — even when the applications are from different vendors.”
With over 1 billion transactions delivered every single day, an Oracle Linux and Exadata Infrastructure will make salesforce.com a more efficient company.
Parker Harris, co-founder and executive vice president, salesforce.com, said: “Deploying Exadata engineered systems throughout our data centers will allow us to significantly lower overall hardware, floor space and energy costs, while simultaneously providing our customers with higher performance and better reliability.”
