Oracle, a Redwood City, California-based multinational computer technology corporation, as per recent reports last week, has announced its new Tokyo Region Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, in its bid to extend its support for some of the country’s biggest companies. The new data center facility aims to strengthen the company’s market presence in the region, with its cloud database products and services offerings, along with high-performance computing applications.
Oracle in its statement, said the new cloud region aims to address the high performance, security, resiliency, and local data residency demands of Japanese organizations to “increase cloud adoption with confidence”.
Speaking on this context, Andrew Reichman, Director of Product Management, Oracle, said, “Japan is one of the counties in which we’ve built trust over years of adoption by the biggest domestic organizations. To further support customers there, we’ve opened an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure data center region in Tokyo, which is now ready for customer use.”
Adding further, Reichman said, “The 50 biggest companies (by revenue) in Japan use Oracle software in their own data centers. Thirty-two of them also use Oracle Cloud in some way, including cloud applications and services.”
Furthermore, Oracle enables its clientele to put their data wherever they’ve got a user base in the world by employing Oracle’s secure data backbone that ensures regional connectivity to the rest of its global cloud infrastructure.
The Cloud investment scenario in Japan is changing dramatically, growing at an increased pace. As per IDC Japan reports, the market for public cloud services saw a 27% increase than the last year.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides and supports Oracle data solutions including Exadata Cloud Service, Autonomous Database services and high-performance computing (HPC) options, including GPU and HPC compute shapes.
Norihisa Fujimoto, Director of Service Platform, Digital Transformation Division, at All Nippon Airways, stated, “We have fully embraced digital transformation and the use of the cloud. As such, we have high expectations for the new Oracle Cloud Tokyo data center. It will help us to accelerate our service platform strategy.”
