Oracle has opened a second data centre in Australia in order to meet what it says is increasing demand from customers for cloud-based services, and to augment its existing data centre by offering additional Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings to customers wanting to keep data onshore.

Ian White, Regional Managing Director and Senior Vice President, Oracle Australia and New Zealand. said today that cloud computing was transforming the way Australian organisations approached IT by providing an alternative delivery that supported agility and innovation.

“Oracle Australia’s second data centre demonstrates Oracle’s ongoing commitment to offering cloud solutions to our customers. The centre will help customers to continue to meet Government regulatory requirements and help to ensure sovereignty of sensitive data.”

According to White the new facility would give customers and partners subscription-based, self-service access to Oracle Fusion Applications – “open-standards-based business applications that set a new standard for the way organisations innovate, work, and adopt technology” - including Enterprise Resource Planning, Human Capital Management, Talent Management, Sales and Marketing and Customer Service and Support.

White said all offerings would be managed and supported by Oracle staff, with the data centre housed at Equinix.  

The new facilities use Oracle Engineered Systems, including Exalogic Elastic Cloud,  the company's flagship engineered system for running business applications and the Exadata Database In-Memory Machine.

“As key components of Oracle cloud platform, these systems provide customers and partners with a high-performance, reliable, elastic, and secure infrastructure for their critical business applications,” White concluded.
