Lydia Leong, Distinguished VP Analyst at Gartner, celebrated the emergence of a “sparkly pink unicorn” from Oracle that will enable public sector organizations to address their biggest cloud challenges. In her article, she described this new public cloud experience as the mythical beast sought after by all as the new Oracle. Why? Because Oracle’s Dedicated Regions Cloud@Customer will have all of the top features that customers have asked for, including: location of the customer’s choice, single-tenant, isolated control plane and private, self-service interfaces. Most sparkly of all is the same pricing model as public cloud services while containing all the most desired cloud services. In other words, there is now a public cloud model that replicates benefits of the private cloud but retains the flexibility of the public cloud.
Over the years, there have been “many attempts to introduce public-cloud-consistent private cloud offerings,” Leong noted. AWS, IBM, Microsoft, and Google have released their versions of a public cloud experience, but they were all unable to deliver on everything customers really wanted. Recently, next-generation cloud solutions, including Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer, introduced the first fully-managed cloud region.
Leong explained that through Oracle Dedicated Regions Cloud@Customer “the customer basically provides co-location (either their own data center or a third-party co-location) to Oracle, and Oracle delivers the same SLAs as it does in OCI public cloud.”
Public cloud platforms are able to bridge the gap between cloud and on-premises environments. Deepak Mohan, Research Director at IDC, said new public cloud services bring together the “capability with the compliance, latency, and co-location benefits of on premises, which can be a game-changer for large-scale digital transformation efforts at enterprises.” Public cloud developments will only continue to grow in the near future.
