Imagine a world where your system administrator(s) provisions a fully functional Linux server that is patched with all the up-to-date kernel parameters, updated device drivers, and updated configurations in 1 hour. The time that you make the request to the time that you get access to a server that has a fully configured Red Hat 6/7 or Oracle Linux 6/7 environment is within a couple of hours.

Oracle Cloud Pocket Solutions Guide: Real Life Solutions for Oracle Cloud
As Cloud Computing has evolved and matured, it has sparked growing interest from the enterprise market where economic pressures are challenging traditional IT operations. Many companies and government agencies are being faced with growing IT costs that originate from multiple sources such as legacy systems, software licensing, power consumption, and operating overhead. Cloud Computing, either through Private or Public cloud initiatives, is focused on addressing these issues by reducing costs through better standardization, higher utilization, greater agility, and faster responsiveness of IT services. Oracle is heavily invested in cloud initiatives and is looking to be one of the leaders in the magic quadrant. Oracle is aiming at contending for the AWS market share just like Microsoft Azure was able to obtain.
Oracle has planted data centers in strategic locations all over the world for their cloud infrastructure. Oracle has strong offerings in SaaS, PaaS and IaaS.
