Oracle Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) delivers a broad range of capability which can be exploited to move “Development & Test” activities to the cloud. Oracle provide both “Metered” and “Un-metered” service based charges. As most “Development & Test” activities go through periodic levels of usage depending upon the lifecycle of the applications, the ability to use a “Metered” service and switch it off when there is no usage offers significant cost savings.
Most application development processes need multiple environments to support different activity and achieve the segregation of duties together the appropriate use of test and production data. Oracle Cloud PaaS provides both development environments which can utilise modern tools such as Java SE, Node.js, PHP, Python, Ruby , as well as container environments for effective execution.
