Oracle Opens Next-Gen Cloud Region in Sydney

Sydney—September 13, 2019

As more Australian businesses look for new ways to unlock value from their data and drive innovation, they need to ensure they have the right platform for transformation.

As Agatha Poon, Research Director, 451 Research, told us recently, “There has been a data explosion across the Asia Pacific region as business organizations look for ways to create value from both structured and unstructured data. The result is an increasing need for fast data processing and heightened requirements on enterprise-class cloud infrastructure.  Organizations demand uncompromising security, predictable performance, optimal price/performance, highly scalable cloud-native offerings, and no vendor lock-in.  Vendors that can meet these needs and provide openness, cloud interoperability and portability stand the best chance at being selected as the cloud of choice.”

The challenge is that to meet these needs really needs a whole new class of cloud, one that is designed from the ground up to both host mission critical workloads and drive innovation.

Fortunately for organisations in Australia, that cloud has arrived.  Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud infrastructure, newly available onshore, has been specifically architected to meet the needs of enterprises, offering customers a compelling array of advanced technology.

This includes AI-based Applications, ML-integrated security, automated analytics and Oracle Autonomous Database, a self-driving database that automatically encrypts data, backs itself up, tunes itself, upgrades itself and automatically patches itself when a security threat is detected. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, customers benefit from best-in-class security, consistent high performance, simple predictable pricing, and the tools and expertise needed to bring enterprise workloads to cloud quickly and efficiently.

In fact, a significant number of Australian businesses are gaining value from the use of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, including:

Nufarm, a global crop protection company with 3,300 people in more than 100 countries around the globe. The company estimates moving its Oracle eBusiness Suite workloads from AWS to Oracle Cloud will help it to save up to 40 per cent in licences and infrastructure costs and given the company improved visibility across its network to help spot and deal with issues quickly.

Accolade Wines, a global wine business producing some of the world’s best known and loved brands. It is already using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for some key areas of its applications footprint so it can better manage its global operations and service its customers better, no matter where in the world they are.

NRMA, which offers a wide range of motoring, transport and travel solutions.  A longstanding Oracle customer, the company is considering next generation cloud infrastructure to help it ensure that it uses the resources allocated to running the business as efficiently and effectively as possible and can put more focus on innovation and ensuring that it delivers the best customer experience.

AFG, who supports 3000+ brokers across Australia, who collectively support ~10,000 home loan applications each month.  Another committed Oracle customer, it is looking for a highly responsive cloud to support the credit assessment and decisioning platform that drives its home loans business. It anticipates Generation 2 Cloud will give it the scale needed for its credit operations, and help it with further automating the decision-making process.

These and others have long trusted Oracle to manage their mission critical business data and we look forward to fulfilling the significant existing and new customer demand we are seeing for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle Autonomous Database in Australia. The availability of the local really will provide our customers with the most consistent high performance and service levels and low predictable pricing, meeting the needs of local organisations as they move enterprise and data-intensive applications to the cloud and look to innovate within their organization.
