Oracle National Security Regions (ONSRs) are the Oracle Cloud solution for customers who need a proven cloud platform for classified, mission-critical workloads that provides high performance and enhanced security at a competitive price. Meeting the highest level of U.S. Government classification standards, ONSRs are designed for the US Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC). ONSR regions support and accelerate delivery of national security workloads at the Secret, and Top Secret levels. Completely isolated from the internet, these air-gapped regions securely provide IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and marketplace services, and enable mission owners to secure classified data, remove data silos, and innovate.

ONSR’s provide customers flexibility in scaling, design, and operational controls to support your missions. Security-first means that Oracle redesigned the virtualization stack to reduce the risk from hypervisor-based attacks and increase tenant isolation—security is always on by default. With Oracle’s Everything Everywhere commitment, Oracle Cloud services, tools, and functionality in commercial regions are available in an ONSR and maintained at technical parity to accelerate mission systems development and deployment.
Unlike public clouds, ONSRs are supported and managed from secure, dedicated, cloud network operation centers (CNOCs), which are only accessed, monitored, and staffed by U.S. government-cleared personnel. Oracle leverages CNOCs to provides 24/7 customer support that relies on secure incident management practices to uphold Oracle’s industry-leading SLAs.Learn more about Oracle SLAs
Every ONSR is built to meet the highest level of US Government regulations and compliance requirements specific to the classification level, including the highest forms of independent assurance available for internal controls, data protection, and regulatory compliance. All ONSR services are audited to meet DoD Impact Level 6 and Intelligence Community Directive (ICD) 503 requirements. Top Secret data centers comply with ICD 705 Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) requirements.
Protecting U.S. classified data and networks, from ever present dynamic cyberthreats is a critical priority. Oracle’s cloud security portfolio is designed to constantly monitor, detect, and mitigate cyberthreats automatically and provide centralized security configuration, posture management, and automated enforcement of security practices.
Defense and intelligence agencies rely on secure, high-performance infrastructure to deliver insightful, timely, and actionable intelligence. Oracle Cloud is built to accelerate data- and processing-intensive workloads on unclassified and classified networks.
Improving data management is critical to enhancing mission owner ability to keep the nation safe, create operational efficiencies, and harness the power of data in real time at the tactical edge. Oracle provides a comprehensive database service for data management, automation, data warehousing, and analytics for agencies to secure and access data—improving its performance and availability.
Cloud-based AI solutions are expanding opportunities beyond military operations, enabling business and noncombat-focused applications readiness. Oracle’s ready-to-build AI platform provides cloud services to build, deploy, and manage AI-powered solutions that contribute to create an intelligent mission enterprise, automating operations and making smarter decisions.
