The Indian data canter’s prime focuses would be PaaS and SaaS
Oracle, a California-headquartered computer technology company is planning to open its first data center in India with an intention to enhance its cloud offerings. Reportedly, the company would locate the data center in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
The company is willing to place multiple data centers in India
Andrew Mendelsohn, Executive Vice President, Oracle Database, stated, “We see huge prospects for India which is currently the sixth biggest country in the world for us in terms of revenue standpoint. That is why we are building up a data center for the Cloud here. I am sure that is just the first of the many data centers coming as our business grows.”
According to reports, the data center will be focusing on Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) workloads. Besides, the company is also testing for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), along with other modalities before its rollout.
Shailender Kumar, regional managing director, Oracle India, told, “We are committed to bringing our enterprise Cloud to customers globally. Continuing to support customer and partner demand, our Co-founder, Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison outlined the roadmap for Oracle’s Next Gen Data centers at the ‘Oracle OpenWorld 2018’ in San Francisco.”
Further, Shailender informed that Oracle has many customers and partners who want to run their business applications on Oracle’s Gen 2 Cloud. Moreover, he informed that the giant is looking ahead to open additional regions in a number of countries, including India, to support its customers and fast-growing cloud business in the country.
According to Kumar, clients from India are quickly embracing and upgrading to Autonomous Database, a “self-driving” software that uses Machine Learning (ML) to enable unprecedented availability, high performance and security at a much lower cost. He quoted, “These early adopters represent a mix of large enterprises, mid-size firms and born-in-the-Cloud start-ups, hailing from diverse industries — from banking to footwear, spices to digital commerce and consulting to IT services.”
