The power of Java Cloud Service
Using the Java Cloud Service, you don’t have to worry about setting up any infrastructure details.
With the said cloud computing platform, you can easily and rapidly deploy an application because it utilizes Oracle WebLogic Server, an industry leader server. You also have the option to use Oracle Coherence as a caching and data grid tier, and Oracle Traffic Director as the load balancer.
For the benefit and security of its users, the Java Cloud Service environment is pre-installed and pre-configured with Oracle’s best practices in deploying applications. It also has flexible compute and depository capabilities that allow you to implement any workload and easily scale your environment according to your requirements. As such, you can be assured of the solution’s scalability and reliability to maximize your productivity and performance.
With WebLogic as the foundation of Java Cloud Service, you can develop and test your application locally using your preferred integrated development environment and then deploy to Java Cloud Service without any code changes. You can also opt to use the Java Cloud Service to build, test, and deploy to on-premise production servers. This approach results in reduced cost and a more efficient development and testing.
Oracle Java Cloud Service has a unique portal that allows provisioning your environment and managing your service lifecycle through the use of automated tooling.
Java Cloud Service’s automatic provisioning capabilities allow you to provision a complete WebLogic Server software and virtual machine environment in minutes and immediately start deploying your applications.
Oracle Coherence software is available if you need caching and data grid functionality within an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance. You also have an option to enable Oracle Traffic Director to act as a single access point for your entire multi-node cluster.
Managing your service lifecycle in Oracle Java Cloud Service is an easy and convenient task. You can make use of the portal to complete several operations including restoration, patching, rollback, and backup. You can also scale your service depending on your business demands.

For example, if you have an existing application already running in an on-premise environment, you can move it to Java Cloud Service without difficulty. It also allows you to bring any third-party frameworks or applications to your platform. These tasks are possible because you are the one fully managing your environment.
