Read the report and learn how Oracle’s distributed cloud offerings deliver the public cloud to customer data centers and edge locations, with a range of deployment models.

A distributed cloud that can be wherever you need it

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) makes it easy to use the cloud the way you need to. By design, OCI’s distributed cloud offerings are all built on the same foundation. This means you get the same cloud services, performance, pricing, and SLAs, regardless of how and where you need to deploy.


OCI works well with other clouds, so you can use applications and data across clouds.

  • Low network transfer pricing makes it easier to move data.
  • Interconnects with Microsoft Azure offer high performance and low latency.
  • Provision and operate databases with a unified experience across clouds.

Sovereign AI

Address AI sovereignty needs with Oracle’s distributed cloud. Deploy Oracle’s full AI stack in the public cloud or in your data center for increased control of data and AI infrastructure.

“With its distributed cloud strategy, Oracle is the only hyperscaler to literally offer every single one of its hundreds of cloud services in the deployment model and location that a customer selects. Whereas other hyperscalers essentially assert ‘you must come to my public cloud for the best services,’ Oracle brings its best services directly to customers.”
