I'm James Stanbridge, VP and lead product manager for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) in Europe and Asia. We're pleased to announce the general availability of infrastructure services from our UK-London datacenter. The UK region uses Oracle's modern IaaS architecture, and will be of particular interest to those looking for service locality and the lowest possible latency.
Oracle has already established a strong base of customers in the UK, helping customers run their applications with greater agility and efficiency and enabling the launch of brand new services with organizations like YellowDog and Interactive Scientific.
The UK region provides bare metal and VM compute instances, file, block, object, and archive storage, Oracle Database Cloud on VMs or bare metal, Exadata Cloud Services, and truly unique features like Oracle RAC, all running on the same 25 GbE, highly configurable Virtual Cloud Network. For more details on the services, please visit cloud.oracle.com.
The UK region is a great choice for businesses serving internal or external customers in the United Kingdom. It takes advantage of Oracle's next generation IaaS architecture, including enterprise optimized hardware and network technology, to offer the highest performance for UK customers. Whether you're moving current enterprise applications like Oracle E-Business Suite or developing new cloud-native services, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is designed to provide exceptional performance, availability, and manageability, backed by the industry's first end-to-end SLA.
Like the enhanced US and EU Germany regions, this new datacenter region has three fault-decorrelated Availability Domains with high speed low latency interconnects. This architecture enables you to build and run highly resilient applications. Both traditional n-tier and distributed scale-out applications can benefit. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure also offers the disaster recovery, data replication, and redundancy options enterprises expect. For example, Oracle Database customers can follow the Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) guidelines and leverage Data Guard for asynchronous replication and disaster protection.
We invite you to try out Oracle's cloud infrastructure. Reach out to your local Oracle representative to discuss your use cases or try out our service for free online. My team and I are excited to work with you.
