Additionally, customers can run an Oracle service on Azure against another Oracle service running on Oracle Cloud.
In the post announcing the partnership, Don Johnson, Executive Vice President of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure stated: "With this partnership, our joint customers can migrate their entire set of existing applications to the cloud without having to re-architect anything, preserving the large investments they have already made."
