Oracle New Cloud Region in Tokyo

Oracle Corporation has announced the opening of its cloud service data center region in Tokyo. The facility is now available for customer use.

The Tech giant claims that the 50 biggest companies (by revenue) in Japan use Oracle software in their own data centers. Hence, this new Tokyo facility addresses the needs for high performance, security, resiliency, and local data residency that Japanese organizations require to increase cloud adoption with confidence.

“Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides powerful data solutions that aren’t available on any other cloud platform, and we’re excited to make these solutions available locally in Japan. Some of our most important solutions are Exadata Cloud Service, Autonomous Database services, and high-performance computing (HPC) options, including our state-of-the-art GPU and HPC compute shapes,” said Andrew Reichman, Director of Product Management, Oracle.

The new facility is expected to provide the following products at or shortly after the opening:

  • Compute services: Intel-based VM and bare metal compute instances, GPU instances, HPC bare metal instances and Container Engine for Kubernetes Engine and Registry.
  • Storage services: Block Volumes, File Storage, Object Storage and Archive Storage.
  • Network services: Virtual Cloud Network, Load Balancing, FastConnect and DNS.
  • Database and Analytics services: Oracle Database as a Service, Exadata Cloud Service, Autonomous Transaction Processing, Autonomous Data Warehouse and Analytics Cloud.
  • Management and Security: Identity and Access Management, Tagging, Audit, Key Management and Identity Cloud Service (for hybrid cloud and multicloud).
  • Application Platform and Integration services: Java Cloud Service and SOA Cloud Service.

“At All Nippon Airways (ANA), we have fully embraced digital transformation and the use of cloud. As such, we have high expectations for the new Oracle Cloud Tokyo Data Center. With Oracle’s enhanced support for innovation as one of the leading data centers choice of the market and as our strategic partner, we believe that will help us to accelerate our service platform strategy,” said Norihisa Fujimoto, Director of Service Platform, Digital Transformation Division, All Nippon Airways.

Oracle also announced that its customers should expect a second Japan region, in Osaka, later this year, which the company said will further enable effective workload deployment among the most demanding enterprises and public-sector organizations in the country.
