This week, cloud services provider Oracle announced the expansion of its Australia presence by introducing Oracle Cloud Platform services to the Australian market.
The expansion follows Oracle’s recent cloud footprint expansions in Reston, Virginia, and Turkey which are expected to come online by mid-2017. Coupled with recently announced infrastructure investments, Oracle says that it sees a doubling of the regional presence of its cloud platform in the last 24 months.
Oracle says that the expansion of its services gives customers in Australia additional choice and flexibility. Oracle’s IaaS enables customers to deploy both Oracle and non-Oracle workloads on the cloud and delivers the advantages of lower latency and local data residency.
Rob Willis, Regional Managing Director, Oracle Australia and New Zealand said:
This expansion in the local cloud market reflects our commitment to meet growing customer demand for new solutions as they seek to transform and boost their competitive advantage.
We are the only vendor to offer Australian customers a full-stack Platform cloud service, giving customers unprecedented choice and flexibility in how they work.
With the availability of the Sydney Region, we expect to see an even faster adoption of services locally, as well as throughout the rest of APAC, given its proximity to Sydney as a hub.
