Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Dedicated Region is a complete OCI cloud region in your data center that offers the agility, scalability, and economics of OCI public cloud. Retain full control of your data and applications to meet the highest security, regulatory, and data residency requirements while modernizing your infrastructure.
Meet your governance, regulatory compliance, and data privacy requirements while experiencing the benefits of the public cloud in your own data centers. Enable applications and data to remain on-premises and adhere to data residency requirements.
Run latency-sensitive applications in a fully managed, on-premises cloud region. Generate real-time responses to end user applications or communicate with other on-premises systems. Deploy banking applications, payment processing, and risk management services to customers and financial clients from in-country locations to meet data locality requirements.
Consolidate legacy apps on high performance cloud infrastructure managed by Oracle. Modernize applications and build cloud native applications with a consistent platform across the public cloud and your data center.
Dedicated Region provides all Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s public cloud services in a self-contained, independent cloud region in a physical location of the customer's choosing. Customers can start small and scale fast (up to more than 450 racks) while retaining full control of their data and services to meet the highest security, regulatory, and data residency requirements. Oracle will install, operate, support, and upgrade each OCI Dedicated Region in the same way we maintain OCI public cloud regions worldwide.
Dedicated Region offers the exact same 100-plus public cloud services available in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's public cloud regions. As the only product to offer a fully integrated cloud experience on-premises for IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS, Dedicated Region allows customers to modernize legacy applications and quickly build new cloud native ones.
Dedicated Region inherits OCI’s unique pricing model, which is ideal for global companies that want to expand without pricing constraints. Customers can limit resource access, control budget, reduce underused resources, and forecast spending accurately with OCI’s built-in capabilities. Our lower product costs translate into 20% to 60% lower TCO across a range of workloads versus comparable on-premises infrastructure. Many OCI Dedicated Region services are metered on a per-second basis so you can scale resources when you need them.
OCI Dedicated Region provides hardened physical and perimeter network security while enhancing the security of the platform, data, and applications with Oracle security controls and services. OCI Dedicated Region uses the same defense-in-depth architecture approach as OCI, combined with layered security controls.
OCI Dedicated Region inherits the competitive and globally consistent pricing model of OCI’s public cloud regions. Since organizations buy a subscription to consume cloud services instead of building their own cloud, expenses incurred are OpEx, not CapEx. Customers can save money, reduce underused resources, and forecast spending accurately with OCI Dedicated Region's built-in capabilities.
OCI Dedicated Region enables you to build a truly consistent development experience for all IaaS and PaaS workloads by using the exact same tools, APIs, and SLAs that are available in OCI’s public cloud regions.
“OCI Dedicated Region enables us to innovate with next-generation public cloud services within our data center while meeting data residency requirements.”
“OCI has helped us build a distributed cloud environment within our Tokyo and Osaka data centers, allowing us to leverage the high performance and flexible resources of OCI and maintain [the] high levels of financial governance and availability that we require.”
“This in-country infrastructure capability allows us to run all our IT services on a multitenant cloud infrastructure, with physical control of infrastructure and data to help meet our country’s regulatory, data residency, [and] latency requirements, and help boost the Sultanate’s digital economy.”
“The deployment of a focused, locally delivered, and highly secure ‘government cloud’ will accelerate our progress towards Digital Bangladesh—nothing like this currently exists.”
“This is a strong differentiating move by Oracle because it does not have to compromise on which functionalities and capabilities will be available on-premises.”
“…the full menu of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS services that it currently offers in the Oracle Public Cloud. With Dedicated Region, they are the only cloud provider to do so.”
“In plain English, Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer is essentially a clone of a full Oracle Public Cloud region in a user’s premises.”
Karan Batta, VP, Product, OCI
OCI’s distributed cloud offers customers the benefits of the cloud with greater control over data residency, locality, and authority, even across multiple clouds. OCI has already been delivering distributed cloud services to customers across the globe.
