Industry-first fully-managed cloud region that brings all of Oracle’s second-generation cloud services including the secure autonomous database.
Enterprise adoption of public clouds has gone mainstream as companies have taken advantage of the pay-as-you-go economics, scale, and agility of cloud computing. However, most enterprises expect to continue to run a portion of their workloads on-premises datacenters for the foreseeable future. There is a major ask from customers for a hybrid architecture where the same services, same functionality, security and easy portability of applications exists between their public and on-premises cloud environments.
Until now, no solution was able to bridge the gap between cloud and on-premises environments.
On-premise offerings from other cloud providers offer a very small subset of the services available in their public cloud regions.
With the news of a dedicated Cloud Region Cloud@Customer, Oracle is making all of its cloud services available on-premises so enterprises can use Oracle’s cloud services, Oracle Autonomous Database and SaaS Applications wherever they need them – in the cloud, on premises or via Cloud@Customer.
Enterprises get the exact same complete set of modern cloud services, APIs, industry-leading SLAs, superior price-performance, and highest levels of security available from Oracle’s public cloud regions in their own datacenters and the pricing starts at $500k per month.
This is a small fraction of what customers would have to pay for a one off region from other cloud providers. It is ideal for highly regulated or security-focused businesses needing to meet demanding latency and data residency requirements, reduce operational costs, and modernize legacy applications.
“Enterprise customers have told us that they want the full experience of a public cloud on-premises, including access to all of Oracle’s cloud services, to run their most important workloads,” said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president of engineering, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “With Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer, enterprises get all of our second-generation cloud services, including Autonomous Database, in their datacenters. Our major competitors can’t offer customers a comparable dedicated cloud region running on-premises."
