Oracle Cloud for Australian Government and Defence 

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) has built a government cloud for the Australian Government, including defence customers and their service providers. Located in Canberra, and offering over 100 services for federal, state, and local government entities, the cloud region is dedicated for Australian Government workloads and isolated from other hyperscale commercial Oracle Cloud regions. Oracle Cloud for Australian Government and Defence has been certified for IRAP (Information Security Registered Assessors Program) at PROTECTED level, providing assurance to Australian public sector organisations that the cloud region adheres to appropriate security controls.

Support mission-critical workloads and improve business agility

Reinvent workflows to accommodate new realities

Citizens have rising expectations for convenience, and governments must create a more resilient, scalable architecture to meet their demands. Oracle is the first major cloud vendor to support Layer 2 (L2) network virtualization, offering compatibility for databases, network appliances, and virtualization environments. Governments can migrate their mission-critical applications without re-architecting or sacrificing control and visibility.

Reduce security risks by limiting the attack surface

Security and risk management are very important agency considerations, and they require a secure cloud infrastructure based on least privilege access. Secure by design, with zero trust as its mandate, OCI prevents threats from accessing customer data by isolating network virtualization. This greatly reduces the risk from hypervisor-based attacks and provides superior tenant isolation compared with earlier public cloud designs.

Ensure business continuity with a disaster recovery plan

Governments must be resilient, even when faced with natural disasters, public safety concerns, and national security threats. If a large-scale outage affects production applications, governments need the ability to restore the workloads quickly.

Set up a distributed architecture

Invest in automation and focus on more critical functions

Governments have an increasingly diverse set of data sources that consume significant amounts of storage and risk exceeding the capacity of existing systems. This data is often locked away in silos, preventing teams from gaining valuable insights. Consolidate tens to thousands of databases with a unified service and leverage autonomous services to automate patching and performance tuning of the operating system and database. Use Oracle Analytics Cloud for data preparation, machine learning, visualization, reporting, and augmented analysis on all types of data¬—in the cloud, on-premises, or in a hybrid deployment.
