Microsoft Azure customers worldwide can now gain access to Azure Tessell for Oracle PaaS to take advantage of the scalability, reliability, and agility of Azure to drive application development and shape business strategies.

Tessell, a DBaaS platform for cloud-born and cloud-defining enterprises, today announced the availability of Azure Tessell PaaS for Oracle in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. Tessell customers can now take advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform with streamlined deployment and management.

Azure Tessell is the only PaaS for Oracle that is available on Microsoft Azure. Customers can deploy fully-managed Oracle databases on both standard and high-performance Azure infrastructure in their own Azure subscription and achieve up to 1 million IOPS at a predictable, fixed cost. From the Azure Marketplace, customers can use their Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC), pay-as-you-go, or deploy on reserved instances. Now, high-performance Oracle workloads that were previously stranded, can be moved and modernized to Azure. Customers can modernize with hybrid or Azure-native architectures.

Large monolithic Oracle databases that were considered “out of bounds” from a cloud perspective can now be migrated seamlessly to Azure while saving on Oracle licenses and overall hosting and administration costs. Furthermore, customers can achieve zero data loss protection and point-in-time recovery with the Tessell Availability Machine, which supports native database backups for longer-term retention, compliance, and avoiding cloud lock-in. Azure Tessell helps customers set up HA/DR across regions to achieve a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) for their mission-critical databases.

Tessell facilitates continuous FinOps and Operations Optimizations by creating data anonymization policies and spinning up/down secondary environments like UAT, QA, and Dev with just a few clicks.

With 10x performance potential compared to any on-premises or competing cloud technologies, Azure Tessell is the preferred landing zone for your mission-critical databases. Tessell is fully integrated with Azure Active Directory, Azure Key Vault, Azure Network Security Groups, Azure Monitor, Azure Managed Disks, Azure Blob Storage, and Azure Data Services. With each Azure-native integration, customers experience even greater value in their digital transformation journey powered by Microsoft Azure.

“Customers have made Tessell the leading Oracle DBaaS for Azure, benefiting from high-performance infrastructure with 10X Performance/Price, governed data management and sharing. In addition to being a fully managed DBaaS, Tessell’s ‘@ Your Terms’ enables you to bring your own custom management and security stack to your Azure tenancy. As a one-stop-shop for database and data management, Tessell simplifies operations and the integration with Azure Data Services such as Synapse. ”
Bala Kuchibhotla, CEO, Tessell
“We’re pleased to welcome Tessell to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, which gives our partners great exposure to cloud customers around the globe. Azure Marketplace offers world-class quality experiences from global trusted partners with solutions tested to work seamlessly with Azure. ”
Jake Zborowski, General Manager, Microsoft Azure Platform

The Azure Marketplace is an online market for buying and selling cloud solutions certified to run on Azure. The Azure Marketplace helps connect companies seeking innovative, cloud-based solutions with partners who have developed solutions that are ready to use.

Tessell was conceived with the vision to create a database engine agnostic PaaS offering in the cloud that delivers unprecedented performance, availability, flexibility, and cost efficiencies delivered at customer terms. All our innovations are brought to fruition while keeping the customer at the epicenter of the design without any form of lock-in. To enable enterprises to fully capitalize on the potential of Microsoft Azure by simplifying the movement of large Oracle databases to a comprehensive and heavily differentiated Oracle PaaS on Azure. Azure Tessell for Oracle can deliver up to 10x more performance compared to any other public cloud PaaS on Oracle at a fractional cost while enabling RDS+++ capabilities. Tessell’s offering is available on the Azure Marketplace; it is Microsoft co-sell incentivized, and Azure customers can use their Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC) to procure it. Azure Tessell for Oracle also acts as a FinOps supplement, which drives instant cost savings that can be redirected to Azure to fund net-$0 innovation, thus enabling companies to do “more with less,” as emphatically emphasized by Satya Nadella, earlier this year during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
