Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure takes one of the main issues with the Cloud, performance or lack there of, and address it with its bare metal instances. Oracle offers bare metal and virtual compute instances as well as NVMe versions with up to 25TB of NVMe storage for performance unlike anything else seen in the cloud. It takes more than NVMe storage to hit Oracle’s quoted performance of up to 5.1 million IOPS, the instances also have up to 52 OCPUs, 768GB RAM, dual 25GbE NICs and up to 51TB of locally attached NVMe storage. This level of performance is used primarily for use cases such as mission-critical database applications, HPC workloads, and I/O intensive web applications.
