Oracle expands Hybrid Cloud portfolio

New solution enables secure, scalable cloud services wherever customers need them, even in the most remote areas of the world.

Oracle has expanded its hybrid cloud portfolio with Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure, a new offering that brings core infrastructure services to the edge with Roving Edge Devices (REDs) – ruggedised, portable, scalable server nodes. Using Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure, organisations can run cloud workloads wherever they need them, even in the world’s most remote locations. Whether it is in the back of a plane, a polar observatory, or an oil tanker in the mid-Atlantic, the power of Oracle Cloud is always accessible with Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure.

The new service is part of Oracle’s comprehensive hybrid cloud portfolio, which provides customers with more flexibility and control over their cloud deployments than other vendors. Global customers across financial services, public sector, healthcare, logistics, and communications industries are using Oracle’s hybrid cloud solutions to support their cloud transformations without the trade-offs in scale, data sovereignty, and control that they have had to make in the past.

“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 Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Oracle’s hybrid cloud portfolio essentially delivers a cloud region wherever and however a customer needs it.”

Only Oracle offers a comprehensive cloud portfolio that meets customers where they are in their cloud transformation. In addition to its public cloud offerings, which include 29 Oracle Cloud regions, Oracle Government Cloud, and six global Oracle-Microsoft Azure Interconnect regions, Oracle offers the most complete support for hybrid cloud strategies. Services include Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer, Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer, Oracle VMware Cloud Solution, and now Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure. Together, these solutions provide customers with flexibility of location and a high degree of customer control so customers can run an identical set of Oracle Cloud services in their datacentres, run core cloud services entirely disconnected from the internet, and minimise dependencies on the public cloud.

“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,” said Sriram Subramanian, Research Director, IDC. “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.”
