Oracle OpenWorld, San Francisco, Calif.—Oct 23, 2018


Oracle cements commitment to next generation of enterprise cloud.

Driven by strong customer demand for its cloud services, Oracle today announced significant enhancements to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, as well as an updated global data center region roadmap. With Oracle’s modern cloud regions, only Oracle can deliver the industry’s broadest, deepest, and fastest growing suite of cloud applications and Oracle Autonomous Database, all running on its enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure.

“Oracle has built the cloud best suited to handle the world’s most important business workloads. These workloads require the highest levels of security to handle the increase in demand for superior price and performance – most of which have yet to make the transition to cloud,” said Don Johnson, senior vice president, product development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. 

With these advancements, Oracle continues to provide the secured, mission-critical infrastructure customers can depend on to run enterprise applications. Below are updates to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure:

  • Security Enhancements: Oracle extended its commitment to provide cloud customers core-to-edge security by introducing new integrated security solutions to combat sophisticated cyber threats with layers of defense. The new cloud services include a Key Management Service (KMS) that allows customers to control the encryption of their data; an integrated Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), which monitors and enforces secure configurations; a Web Application Firewall (WAF) designed to protect against attacks on web traffic; and Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) protection to help stop malicious actors from disrupting customer applications.
  • Cloud Region Roadmap: Continuing to support customer and partner demand, Oracle outlined the roadmap for its cloud regions. By the end of next year, the company will open additional regions in Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan, South Korea, India, Brazil, the Middle East, and the United States, including Virginia, Arizona, and Illinois to support public sector and Department of Defense customers. This expansion complements an existing Edge network consisting of more than 30 global locations and 300 plus sensors, providing Oracle customers with a comprehensive Internet performance data set, and deep edge services capabilities.
  • Upgrade to Autonomous Database: Oracle is previewing new capabilities with dedicated Oracle Exadata cloud infrastructure for the latest release of Oracle Autonomous Database cloud service, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP). Running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, ATP allows the line of business or development teams to each have their applications or development projects deployed in a fully dedicated ‘private cloud like environment’ on Oracle Cloud.
  • Openness: To support its commitment to openness, and with expanding relationships with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), Oracle is announcing it has joined the Internet Society (ISOC) and Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition). Oracle will be a key member of these internet infrastructure community organizations to drive forward global internet policy and educational programs, as well as joining various working groups and industry events.
  • Enterprise Expertise: Oracle announced a new integrated experience for partners and customers that makes it easier for them to publish and deploy business applications from Oracle Cloud Marketplace on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  • Mission-Critical Performance: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure continues to deliver customers with the performance required of today’s most mission-critical workloads. Oracle Cloud has beat out competitors in recent testing around performance. Combined with simple and scalable pricing, Oracle is leading the market in price and performance.
