Oracle Global Physical Security uses a risk-based approach to physical and environmental security. The goal is to balance prevention, detection, protection, and response, while maintaining a positive work environment that fosters innovation and collaboration among Oracle employees and partners. Oracle regularly performs risk assessments to confirm that the correct and effective mitigation controls are in place and maintained.
Oracle has implemented the following protocols:
Oracle Cloud data centers are designed to help protect the security and availability of customer data. This approach begins with Oracle’s site selection process. Candidate build sites and provider locations undergo an extensive risk evaluation by Oracle that considers environmental threats, power availability and stability, vendor reputation and history, neighboring facility functions (for example, high-risk manufacturing or high-threat targets), and geopolitical considerations among other criteria.
Oracle Cloud data centers align with Uptime Institute and Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) ANSI/TIA-942-A Tier 3 or Tier 4 standards and follow a N2 redundancy methodology for critical equipment operation. Data centers housing Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services use redundant power sources and maintain generator backups in case of widespread electrical outage. Server rooms are closely monitored for air temperature and humidity, and fire-suppression systems are in place. Data center staff are trained in incident response and escalation procedures to address security and availability events that may arise.
