I'm Mark Findlay, a Director of Product Management for Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services. We're pleased to announce the enhancement of Oracle's US East Region in Ashburn, Virginia and the immediate availability of Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services (BMCS) from this region. The US East Region (Ashburn) has been built with Oracle's next generation IaaS architecture, and is designed to support North American customers, particularly East Coast customers looking for the lowest possible latencies.
Like Oracle's US West Region in Phoenix, Arizona, US East offers high performance, highly reliable, and cost effective enterprise grade cloud services, including bare metal and VM compute instances, high performance block and object storage, a deeply-configurable Virtual Cloud Network, Oracle Database Cloud Services running on bare metal, and unique to the market features like Oracle RAC. For a complete list, and more details on the services, please visit cloud.oracle.com.
US East (Ashburn) takes advantage of Oracle's next generation IaaS architecture, including enterprise optimized hardware and network technology, to offer the highest performance for East Coast customers. Like US West (Phoenix), this new data center region has three fault-decorrelated Availability Domains with high speed and low latency interconnect. This, in combination with robust IaaS offerings, enables customers to build and run highly resilient applications. Nearly any application can leverage this architecture, whether traditional n-tier, or distributed scale-out models.
Here are some screen shots of the new dashboard, note the region pull-down:
And in these screenshots you can see the Availability Domains for Phoenix and Ashburn:
With enhanced data center regions to support both western and eastern North America, BMCS now offers additional disaster recovery, data replication, and redundancy options expected by enterprise clients. For example, Oracle Database customers can use DataGuard for asynchronous replication and disaster protection, following Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) guidelines. The Bare Metal Cloud Services console, command line interface and SDK now allow developers and clients to create, manage and maintain resources in both regions seamlessly and easily. Many of our North American customers are in the process of expanding their operations to US East (Ashburn), and we're very excited to support them!
Please reach out with any questions or feedback.
