Oracle deploys full-stack cloud platform to Australian market

14 Feb 2017

Oracle recently announced the expansion of its cloud coverage in Australia, bringing its enterprise-class, Oracle Cloud Platform services to the Australian market.

Focused initially around data management, application development and integration the company aims to help users to reduce cost and complexity, utilise digital solutions and innovate to modernise and transform their businesses.

Oracle is also the only vendor in Australia to offer full suite of enterprise SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS cloud services.

Rob Willis, regional managing director at Oracle Australia and New Zealand, says innovation and agility are pre-requisites for business in Australia.

“This expansion in the local cloud market reflects our commitment to meet growing customer demand for new solutions as they seek to transform and boost their competitive advantage,” he says.

“We are the only vendor to offer Australian customers a full-stack Platform cloud service, giving customers unprecedented choice and flexibility in how they work.

With the availability of the Sydney Region, we expect to see an even faster adoption of services locally, as well as throughout the rest of APAC, given its proximity to Sydney as a hub.”  Users also already had the choice to use Oracle Cloud at Customer to deploy Oracle Cloud Machine for IaaS and PaaS services within their own data centers.

Adrian Ho is a Principal Analyst with Ovum, he says that when you look at cloud maturity in Asia Pacific, Australia is definitely the most mature.

“Having a local presence will make a lot of difference – there is still a strong preference for local delivery from both customers and partners,” he explains.

“We see it as a great addition to Oracle’s portfolio.”
