Oracle delivers all its public cloud services on-premises in a physical location of the customer's choosing. Customers can start small and build fast, with the base footprint including 18 racks and expanding to more than 450 racks. With Oracle Dedicated Region, customers gain access to OCI capabilities while retaining full control of their data and services to meet the highest security, regulatory, and data residency requirements. Enterprises and governments avoid the challenges of building a cloud by using Oracle Dedicated Region to install, manage, and support a cloud region.
“With Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer, we have access to full public cloud capabilities on-premises to meet Oman’s data residency and data privacy requirements. 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.”
Dedicated Region offers the exact same set of public cloud services available in the public regions of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Dedicated Region is also certified to run Oracle SaaS products, such as Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP, Financials, HCM, and SCM, offering a completely integrated cloud experience. With Dedicated Region, you can use OCI’s cloud services for lift-and-shift scenarios, to upgrade legacy applications, and more.
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.
Most customers find themselves in a tough situation when it comes to the cloud—they want the benefits of the public cloud, but they also need location flexibility.AWS and Microsoft haven’t been able to meet customers’ needs. AWS Outposts and Microsoft Azure Stack
Hub bring a small subset of public cloud services into customers’ data centers. All workloads can’t be migrated as is because Outposts doesn’t let customers have full control of their VMware environments. Nonvirtualized workloads will not run on Outposts or Azure Stack Hub.
Without a public cloud of their own, HPE and Dell have been positioning their legacy hardware as having “cloudlike” functionality. However, their offerings are not public cloud extensions because they neither own nor operate a public cloud. They also depend on external software vendors to build out their mostly hardware portfolio.
Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer is precisely equivalent to Oracle’s public cloud, extended to your data centers. Customers can implement a broad set of workloads using a complete portfolio of modern IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS services. No other products come close to delivering such a broad set of cloud services on-premises.
“Finally, private cloud identical to public cloud…No one has previously delivered what I think is what customers really want.”
Dedicated Region brings hardened physical and perimeter network security while enhancing the security of the platform, data, and applications with Oracle security controls and services. Dedicated Region follows the same defense-in-depth architecture and provides security controls at all layers of the stack.
With Dedicated Region, you can meet your governance, regulatory compliance, and data privacy requirements while experiencing the benefits of the public cloud. Additionally, all application data remains on-premises and adheres to data governance requirements.
Oracle 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 available in Oracle’s public cloud.
“OCI Dedicated Region enables us to innovate with next-generation public cloud services within our data center while meeting data residency requirements. We can maintain full control of our on-premises data center operations while investing toward a digital transformation with the performance, scalability, and resilience that Dedicated Region offers. By modernizing our infrastructure with Oracle, we can lower our IT costs while bringing products to market faster.”

“[Oracle Dedicated Region] is a major step toward enabling more choice for government to access world-leading cloud services, in a data centre managed by a 100% Australian sovereign company, focused on connectivity, security, and simplified deployment. Critically, [Oracle Dedicated Region] addresses data hosting sovereignty, enhanced security and performance attributes required to accelerate Governments shift to the cloud services.”

With Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer, you can meet your governance, regulatory compliance, and data privacy requirements while experiencing the benefits of the public cloud in your own data centers. Additionally, all application data remains on-premises and adheres to data governance requirements. Government entities can store data in a certified cloud that can be isolated from the internet, if required.
Oracle manages infrastructure operations and availability so that you can focus on business innovation. Banks and financial institutions can deliver banking applications, payment processing, and risk management services to customers and financial clients from in-country locations to meet data locality requirements. With Dedicated Regions deployed close to the sources of data, these institutions can maintain 24/7 trading and exchange platforms at desired single-digit millisecond latencies. Similarly, organizations can apply analytics and machine learning services to health management systems that need to remain on-premises due to data and latency processing requirements.
With Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer, you can easily modernize your legacy applications. You can seamlessly lift and shift legacy workloads using any of Oracle Cloud’s services, such as bare metal compute, VMs, and GPUs; database services such as Autonomous Database; and container-based services such as Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes. Consolidation of workloads in a dedicated region dramatically improves TCO since enterprises can run applications with the same SLAs for availability, manageability, and performance as in Oracle’s public cloud regions. Dedicated Region is an on-premises cloud that brings all Oracle’s cloud services closer to on-premises legacy applications and data that may never move to the public cloud.

A wider range of customers can now gain the agility, economics, and scaling of the public cloud in their own data centers. OCI Dedicated Region now requires 60% to 75% less data center space and power, with a significantly lower entry price of US$1 million a year. Read about how this new entry point and the smaller footprint open OCI Dedicated Region up to more organizations who need to run workloads outside the public cloud.
