Google Cloud forges multicloud partnership with Oracle

Google Cloud has announced a wide-ranging cloud partnership with Oracle aimed at helping customers simplify cloud migration as well as multicloud deployment and management. Under the agreement, Oracle and Google Cloud will partner to give customers the choice to combine Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Google Cloud technologies.

Google Cloud’s Cross-Cloud Interconnect will initially be made available for customers onboarding in 11 global regions, allowing customers to deploy general-purpose workloads with no cross-cloud data transfer charges. This will give customers operating in cross-cloud interconnet regions including Australia East (Sydney) and Australia South East (Melbourne) the ability to access a low-latency, high-throughput, private connection between the two cloud providers.

Meanwhile, the new offering Oracle Database@Google Cloud is expected to launch later this year. The solution will provide the highest level of Oracle database and network performance, along with feature and pricing parity with OCI.

Both companies have agreed to jointly go to market with the new solution, which will be offered with flexible purchasing options including a simplified purchasing and contracting experience via Google Cloud Marketplace.

Oracle will meanwhile operate and manage Oracle database services directly within Google Cloud datacentres globally, including its Oracle Exadata Database Service, Oracle Autonomous Database Service and Oracle Real Application Clusters. The services will initially launch in regions in North America and Europe before expanding to additional regions worldwide.

Oracle Chairman and CEO Larry Ellison said the joint initiative demonstrates that customers want the flexibility to use multiple clouds. “To meet this growing demand, Google and Oracle are seamlessly connecting Google Cloud services with the very latest Oracle Database technology,” he said. “By putting Oracle Cloud Infrastructure hardware in Google Cloud datacentres, customers can benefit from the best possible database and network performance.”
