NetSuite to open Australian data centre Featured

By

NetSuite announced today it has the budget and the green light to open a data centre in Australia, as soon as the operations team can implement it.

At today's opening keynote of Oracle+NetSuite SuiteWorld 2017, Jim McGeever, executive vice-president, NetSuite Global Business Unit, announced the new data centre.

In the context of what the Oracle acquisition means for NetSuite, he summed it up as "more".

"More countries, more industries, more products, more customer success," McGeever said.

Leveraging Oracle's size and resources allow NetSuite to truly go global, and advance much deeper, much faster, he said.

NetSuite had field offices in about 10 countries, while Oracle has vastly more. NetSuite now has the go-ahead to launch offices in more countries.

Similarly, NetSuite will leverage four additional Oracle development centres to work right away on globalisation features.

When it comes to data centres, McGeever said NetSuite had five data centres currently, three of which are in the US. By contrast, Oracle's core strategy is Platform as a Service (PaaS) with 21 state-of-the-art data centres built just in the last few years.

"NetSuite is going to more than double the amount of data centres as soon as possible," McGeever said. 

These data centres will be located in Chicago, Frankfurt, China, Japan, Singapore and Australia.

He said NetSuite was hiring and would take in more people in FY2018 than they had total employees in 2012.

"NetSuite can deliver to any company, any size, any country, any vertical and is the most widely deployed cloud ERP on the planet," McGeever said.
