Zoom selects Oracle as cloud infrastructure provider

By

Oracle has announced that video communications provider Zoom has selected its cloud infrastructure platform to support its growth and evolving business needs and to provide an essential service to customers.

According to Oracle, to meet rapidly increasing demand for its services, including a sudden spike to 300 million daily meeting participants, Zoom needed additional cloud capacity immediately, and selected Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for its “advantages in performance, scalability, reliability and superior cloud security”.

“We recently experienced the most significant growth our business has ever seen, requiring massive increases in our service capacity. We explored multiple platforms, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure was instrumental in helping us quickly scale our capacity and meet the needs of our new users,” said Zoom CEO Eric S. Yuan.

“We chose Oracle Cloud Infrastructure because of its industry-leading security, outstanding performance, and unmatched level of support.”

“Within hours of deployment, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure supported hundreds of thousands of concurrent Zoom meeting participants,” said Oracle.

“After achieving full production, Zoom is now enabling millions of simultaneous meeting participants on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Oracle’s second-generation cloud infrastructure will help Zoom scale to continue to deliver flawless service to its customer base, adapt to changing demands, and lead the video communications industry.”

“Video communication has become an essential part of our professional and personal lives, and Zoom has led this industry’s innovation,” said Oracle CEO Safra Catz.

“We are proud to work with Zoom, as both their cloud infrastructure provider and as a customer, while they grow and continue to connect businesses, people and governments around the world.”

Catz said that already, Zoom is transferring upwards of seven petabytes through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure servers each day - roughly equivalent to 93 years of HD video.

“Oracle’s second-generation cloud infrastructure, combined with expertise in security, will support Zoom in delivering an enterprise-ready video communications experience,” he concluded.
