Independence of resources Oracle Maketing Cloud applications scales both vertically and horizontally. Horizontally, Oracle Application Server can increase its throughput with Oracle Application Server Clusters, where several application server instances are grouped together to share a workload. Also, Oracle Application Server provides great vertical scalability, allowing you to start several virtual machines from the same configuration files inside a single operating environment (automatically configuring ports, applications and routing). This provides the advantage of vertical scaling based on multiple processes, but eliminates the overhead of administering several separate application server instances.


Service usage metrics Yes
Metrics types Oracle will provide the customer with access to a customer notifications portal. This portal will provide metrics on system availability for Cloud services purchased under the ordering document. If metrics for certain Cloud services are not available on the customer notifications portal, Oracle will provide metrics on system availability upon receipt of a service request submitted by the customer.
