Oracle to expand Gen 2 Cloud to Australia this month

Oracle plans to expand its Generation 2 Cloud to Australia by the end of August with a new data centre in Sydney, followed by one in Melbourne next year.

Oracle has revealed plans to launch its Generation 2 Cloud in Australia by the end of the month, with the opening of a new data centre region in Sydney.

The new cloud region will launch along three others internationally this month, with Oracle planning to have 19 regions live by the end of the year. Oracle also plans to launch an additional region in Melbourne early next year.

Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud infrastructure is designed to provide a range of advanced technology including AI-based applications, machine learning integrated security and automated analytics.

Other features include the Oracle Autonomous database, which automatically encrypts data, backs itself up, tunes itself, upgrades itself and patches itself when a security threat is detected.

Oracle has more than 4000 customers across Australia and New Zealand, and operates a partner network program consisting of partners including Accenture, ASG Group, DXC Technology and PeopleSoft. These partners have indicated their readiness to offer enhanced services based on the next-generation cloud infrastructure.

Oracle is also investing in Australia via its Oracle for Startups program, an accelerator program offering enterprises a no-charge Oracle cloud allocation, as well as opportunities to engage with Oracle’s network of mentors, product experts and customers.

“As more Australian businesses look for new ways to unlock value from their data and drive innovation, Oracle is making deep local investment to ensure they have the right platform for transformation,” Oracle Vice President Technology, Australia and New Zealand Valery Lanovenko said.

“This is a whole new class of cloud, designed from the ground up to both host mission-critical workloads and drive innovation. This new data centre helps us address significant customer demand for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle Autonomous Database, and meet local regulatory requirements.”
