Distributed Cloud

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s distributed cloud offers customers the flexibility to deploy their workloads wherever they like—even across multiple clouds—with the benefits of cloud innovation and greater control over data residency, locality, and authority. Customers use the distributed cloud to satisfy the business, regulatory, and performance requirements often not met by public cloud providers.

“Many large-scale data center users have been working through plans for cloud migration but struggle to move gradually, keeping processing on-premises and moving applications and data in a stepwise manner to the cloud. Oracle’s distributed cloud services overcome this issue by, in effect, bringing the cloud to the customer.”

Carl Olofson Research Vice President, IDC
