Growing Hybrid Cloud Market Gets Boost With Oracle’s Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer


Oracle says Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer will enable customers, like sovereign nations, to run their entire IT portfolio on a single-tenant cloud infrastructure with full physical control of infrastructure. The launch is a strong signal of the growth of the hybrid cloud model being sought by enterprise scale users, made more competitive at the $500K per month pay-you-go pricing.

Cloud adoption has soared over the years, and some of the driving factors for data migration to the cloud is data modernization, flexibility, reduced cost, scale, and performance of IT operations. According to Spiceworks’ Public Cloud Trends in 2019 and Beyond report, business workloads and applications in public clouds will nearly double by 2021. Also, the study showed that while most businesses are eager to capitalize on cloud-centric technologies, some regulated industries such as finance and healthcare still rely heavily on their on-premises data centers. While it is true that on-premises data centers may offer better security and governance, visibility, and control of infrastructure and costs in some cases; new, more hybrid models are also emerging to facilitate the best of both worlds.

Ensuring robust security, Oracle customers can run Oracle SaaS products, including ERP-Financials, Human Capital Management (HCM), and Customer Experience (CX) in a certified environment.

Priced at $500,000 per month for a three-year contract, it works on the pay-as-you-go model, helping enterprises meet their demanding latency while reducing their data center operational costs.

“Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer allows customers to run their most mission-critical operations on the same second-generation cloud infrastructure that powers Oracle’s own public cloud offerings. That means it delivers the benefits of first-generation clouds—self-service, ease of use, and scalability—while also helping meet their most demanding latency and data residency goals, and helping to reduce data center operations costs,” says Magouyrk.

The company also announced its Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer to empower IT data teams to focus more on gaining actionable data insights rather than data management.Opens a new window
