The Oracle Bare Metal Cloud is based on totally new architectural concepts, modern hardware, it is easy to provision and use and most importantly reliable and secure. In addition, Oracle BMC is supposed to be 11 times faster and 20 percent cheaper than the fastest solution offered by the competition.
