Oracle opens digital hub for cloud computing in Singapore

Oracle opens digital hub for cloud computing in Singapore

"OpenWorld last autumn saw the announcement of Oracle's machine intelligence-driven autonomous cloud database (18C)". Amazon's lead is so great that Gartner says the No. 2 company in the space, Microsoft, has just 7.1 percent of the cloud-infrastructure market. CloudWorld this week saw it joined by autonomous PaaS in the form of Oracle Autonomous Cloud Platform. The AI will then proactively surface analytical capabilities and data insights to assist management in making educated decisions.

Aimed at nurturing SMBs with the cloud solutions and resources they need for innovation and growth, this new facility will house Oracle's digital sales team and focus on helping mid-size organisations transition to the cloud efficiently.

For analytics services, a machine-learning based data preparation engine cleans up data and prepares it in a way that can be used in data lakes and for data discovery.

As more enterprise customers move to the cloud, they require consistent performance and reliability. Though Oracle has deep roots in relational databases, the company offers a NoSQL database and also Hadoop and Spark services for unstructured data. Microsoft reported revenue of $5.3 billion for the October-December period, its fiscal second quarter. As an expert in cloud technologies, Oracle believes in the incredible transformation potential it brings to small businesses, enabling them to do things they have never been able to do before, at an affordable price.


Other data center locations will include Amsterdam, China, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea and Switzerland.

The list - in as much detail as Oracle provided - includes China, India, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, the Netherlands and Switzerland, along with two unspecified Canadian locations, and two sites in the U.S. for Department of Defense workloads. As the only cloud infrastructure provider guaranteeing performance, manageability, and availability within its SLAs, Oracle provides the most protection for customers and meets the needs of enterprises who want to shift critical workloads to the cloud today.

"We are weaving autonomous capabilities into the fabric of our cloud to help customers safeguard their systems, drive innovation faster, and deliver the ultimate competitive advantage with smarter real-time decisions", Thomas Kurian, president of product development at Oracle, said in a statement. The company's senior vice-president of product development, Don Johnson, was quoted as saying that apart from the 12 locations named, there were plans for other data centres too.

If our read on Oracle's current cloud footprint is correct, it now has eleven facilities worldwide. The range of services available will push Oracle closer towards its "self-driving" cloud vision, where configuration is fully automated and the service revolves around the organisation's requirements.
