Australian Data Centres is hosting Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer


Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer will be available to the Commonwealth Government from Australian Data Centres’ Canberra data centre.

Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer allows Australian Data Centres to deliver Oracle public cloud regions from its own data centres, retaining physical control of infrastructure and storing data locally to meet sovereignty.

Customer data and all API operations remain local to the data centre and provide high levels of security.

All of Oracle’s second-generation cloud services – including bare metal compute, VMs and GPUs, Autonomous Database, Exadata Cloud Service, Container Engine for Kubernetes, and Data Flow – can be made available by Australian Data Centres.

Australian Data Centres will be responsible for data centre security operations and risk management, and will provide connectivity to the Intra-government Communications Network (ICON) and all major telecommunication providers.

“Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer makes it easier for government entities to securely move to the next stage of their cloud-enabled transformation,” said Oracle vice president and ANZ regional managing director Cherie Ryan.

“It builds on our strong momentum in the Canberra market and provides the equivalent of a third Australian cloud region, complementing our existing investments in second-generation cloud regions in Melbourne and Sydney.”

Australian Data Centres managing director Rob Kelly said “We are committed to building capacity to provide services to the government by Australian providers to assure both the security and reliability of the supply chain.

“This 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, it addresses data hosting sovereignty, enhanced security and performance attributes required to accelerate Governments shift to the cloud services.”

Prices start at $500,000 per month.

In related news, Oracle has announced Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure, which allows cloud workloads to be run wherever they are needed, "even in the world’s most remote locations."

“Customers want choice when it comes to running workloads in the cloud. Each customer has different requirements based on data sovereignty, scale, or wanting the full experience of a public cloud on-premises with all of Oracle’s cloud services. Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure is the latest example, delivering core infrastructure services to remote locations,” said Oracle Cloud Infrastructure executive vice president Clay Magouyrk.

“Oracle’s hybrid cloud portfolio essentially delivers a cloud region wherever and however a customer needs it.”

IDC research director Sriram Subramanian said “With Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure, Oracle yet again broadens its hybrid cloud portfolio by giving customers a taste of its public cloud wherever they may need it.

“Oracle designed its cloud infrastructure portfolio to make it as easy as possible for customers to move workloads to the cloud. Oracle Roving Edge, along with other offerings of the Oracle Cloud portfolio, gives customers multiple deployment and control options to run their most important workloads.”

Oracle Roving Edge prices start at $160 per day for a node comprising 40 OCPUs, an NVIDIA T4 Tensor Core GPU, 512 GB RAM, and 61TB of storage. Five to 15 nodes can be assembled into a single cluster.
