To meet rapidly increasing demand for its services, including a sudden spike to 300 million daily meeting participants, Zoom Video Communications needed additional cloud capacity immediately. Zoom is turning to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to support its growth and evolving business needs.
Zoom selected Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for its advantages in performance, scalability, reliability and superior cloud security. Within hours of deployment, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure supported hundreds of thousands of concurrent Zoom meeting participants.
“We recently experienced the most significant growth our business has ever seen, requiring massive increases in our service capacity. We explored multiple platforms, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure was instrumental in helping us quickly scale our capacity and meet the needs of our new users,” said Eric S. Yuan, CEO of Zoom. “We chose Oracle Cloud Infrastructure because of its industry-leading security, outstanding performance, and unmatched level of support.”
After achieving full production, Zoom is now enabling millions of simultaneous meeting participants on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Oracle’s second-generation cloud infrastructure would help Zoom scale to continue to deliver “flawless” service to its customer base and adapt to changing demands.
“Video communications has become an essential part of our professional and personal lives, and Zoom has led this industry’s innovation,” said Safra Catz, CEO of Oracle. “We are proud to work with Zoom, as both their cloud infrastructure provider and as a customer, while they grow and continue to connect businesses, people and governments around the world.”
Oracle would be uniquely positioned to enable Zoom’s rapid expansion and innovative video communications platform, due to its network architecture, capacity and data center locations. Already, Zoom is transferring upwards of seven petabytes through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure servers each day, roughly equivalent to 93 years of HD video.
