Oracle Compute Cloud Service is used for the core infrastructure that powers the real-time analytics set of applications and middleware that include Apache Kafka. It is used in a hybrid cloud fashion with the application spanning on-prem servers and on-cloud via Oracle Compute Cloud Service.
- Oracle Compute Cloud Service works well in a hybrid cloud deployment model that helps to keep reliance on computing cloud low.
- It is easy to configure and setup with well-weighted options to customize the compute based on application+middlware need.
- It works very well if there is a need for compute spanning multiple locations with fast interconnect between the compute nodes, for example, in realtime analytics.
- Better support for non-Oracle applications and middleware stack will help to run the best of breed solutions on Oracle Compute Cloud Service.
- Better monitoring console that may include not just CPU utilization but visualization of CPU cores in complex of an application workload.
- Support for other computing platforms, including GPUs and other specialized processors for AI ( AI accelerators)

Oracle Compute Cloud Service is very well suited as a cloud computing environment where large scale computing is needed with strict performance needs. It is also well suited when the cloud service needs to span across multiple co-location data centers (as part of Oracle Compute Cloud Service) with the need for high throughput across them. It is not suited where compute needs to be specialized ( e.g., AI Acceleration) or need fine-tuning.
