Oracle Cloud gains momentum in South East Asia

Facing the risk of digital sameness, more customers across the region are pivoting to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) because of the high performance, built-in security, and better returns on investment.

Increasingly, customers are realising not only the immediate benefits of being on the cloud, but also how the cloud can better position the business competitively in the long-term – freeing time and resource spent on maintenance and allowing organisations to innovate.

To meet this demand for cloud services, Oracle recently expanded its footprint with the opening of the Oracle Cloud Singapore Region. Since it’s opening, close to 100 customers across the region have selected to host their workloads on OCI, including City Government of Baguio, Fuji Film and iFoundries.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) enables customers to move their existing complex, mission-critical workloads and data platforms to the cloud, and build new cloud native applications, as well as potentially benefitting from its superior performance, possible lower cost, and built-in security capabilities.

Bangladesh Data Center Company Limited (BDCCL), government-owned data storage and disaster recovery services provider, has selected Dedicated Region [email protected] to provide sovereign-hosted cloud services.

Dedicated Region [email protected] enables BDCCL to run its entire IT portfolio on cloud infrastructure and have physical control of infrastructure and data, ensuring that government users meet the most demanding data sovereignty requirements. Oracle regional managing director Chin Ying Loong said the company has witnessed tremendous growth in the business last year.

 “As customers continue to innovate and modernise on Oracle Cloud, they are realising that not all clouds are the same. Customers recognise that we provide an easy and fast alternative for migrating enterprise applications,” he said

Leading organisations across the region, including AIA Malaysia and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, are continuing to rely on Exadata [email protected] to run their businesses and help adapt to unpredictable business environments.

IDC Vice President Chris Morris said major benefit of digital transformation is the ability to maximise the value of enterprise data.

“However, companies still have data resident on many locations and on differing platforms – making it difficult to securely access and reducing its business value. To mitigate this, businesses need to realise that the cloud has become an environment of multiple clouds, each of which is optimised for a workload,” he said.
