Oracle, Fujitsu team up in enterprise cloud push


Oracle and Fujitsu have announced a partnership designed to push enterprise cloud computing solutions forward. Earlier this week, the tech giants said Oracle Cloud Application and Platform services -- such as Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud -- will now be powered by Fujitsu's data centers in Japan. As part of the companies' agreement, Fujitsu will also push Oracle cloud solutions to enterprise clients in the country and beyond. Oracle and Fujitsu say that the business decision will result in "a high-performance cloud environment to meet the IT and business needs of customers." Oracle's cloud solutions will be supported by Fujitsu's data centers as well as the firm's K5 cloud service, an enterprise cloud platform which supports OpenStack, VMware and Bare Metal.

Oracle Announces Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer


Driven by strong customer demand, Oracle announced Oracle Dedicated Region CloudCustomer, the industry's first fully-managed cloud region that brings all of Oracle's second-generation cloud services, including Autonomous Database and Oracle Cloud applications, to customer datacenters, starting at only $500K a month. With this offering, enterprises get the exact same complete set of modern cloud services, APIs, industry-leading SLAs, superior price-performance, and highest levels of security available from Oracle's public cloud regions in their own datacenters. This is ideal for highly regulated or security-focused businesses needing to meet demanding latency and data residency requirements, reduce operational costs, and modernize legacy applications. Over the past few years, enterprise adoption of public clouds has gone mainstream as companies took advantage of the pay-as-you-go economics, scale, and agility of cloud computing. However, most enterprises expect to continue to run a portion of their workloads in on-premises data centers for the foreseeable future.
