Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) has announced the introduction of a lower entry point for OCI Dedicated Region and a preview of Compute Cloud@Customer services, bringing more than 100 OCI public cloud services into customers’ data centres.
“Distributed cloud is the next evolution of cloud computing, and it provides customers with much more flexibility and control in how they deploy cloud resources,” said Dave McCarthy, research vice president, Cloud and Edge Infrastructure Services, IDC. “Customers are no longer restricted by location choices, data sovereignty, data residency, or latency. OCI’s distributed cloud services offer more capabilities than anyone else in the industry and place all the benefits of the public cloud directly inside a customer’s data centre while still being managed remotely by OCI.”
“Customers have told us that they need cloud without compromise with privacy, security, data residency, and data sovereignty. Current solutions only address a subset of these needs, such as providing limited cloud capabilities or giving a few public cloud locations,” said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Oracle’s approach to distributed cloud addresses all these customer requirements with a full portfolio of different deployment models from public cloud to full cloud on-premises.”
“At Telefónica de España, a global telecom provider with 369 million subscribers, we have partnered with Oracle to support our mission-critical telecom operations,” said Fidel Jesús Fernández, director, Technologies and IT Transformation, Telefónica España. “We are excited about the new announcement of Oracle Compute Cloud@Customer that will enable us to extend our current IT architectures across public and hybrid cloud infrastructure, enhancing the robustness and flexibility of our production and disaster recovery environments. With compatibility across public cloud, connected hybrid cloud, and disconnected cloud platforms, we can develop-once and deploy anywhere for easy migration of workloads between cloud and on-premises to meet the changing needs of our business.”
