A year after Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ:ORCL) launched its first cloud in Mumbai, India, it opened a second one in Hyderabad.
The Hyderabad Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) region comes with availability of one domain. Usually, OCI hosting in regions includes availability of domains. A localized geographic area represents a region, and domain availability is the number of data centers available in that region, and thus a region will have one or more available domains.
Indian customers to choose either OCI region for primary applications
Most importantly, domains exist autonomously, and as a result, if one fails, the other may be working. With this second OCI addition in India, customers can choose Hyderabad or Mumbai region as their primary region while also using the other for disaster or business continuity purposes.
The company employs a distinctive dual region approach that enables clients deploy strong applications in various autonomous cloud regions for disaster recovery purposes. This enables customers recover data without leaving the country and, as a result, helps comply with regulations regarding the independence of data and operational issues connected with running operations in several countries.
Oracle has launched 36 Cloud regions in 2020
The Hyderabad region will be Oracle’s 36th-second-generation OCI region launched globally in 2020. Partners and customers in India can access all Cloud services that include Oracle Autonomous Linux and Oracle Autonomous Database and Oracle Cloud Applications. Besides the Hyderabad Cloud region, the company recently opened five cloud regions in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Chuncheon in South Korea, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, Melbourne in Australia, and Osaka in Japan.
The launch of a cloud region in Hyderabad is a huge opportunity for Oracle, considering it is one of the fastest-growing IT hubs in the country. For instance, in FY2018-2019, IT exports from the Telangana regions were around $15 billion from $14 billion the previous year. There are several It Enabled Services firms in the region with global system integrators like IBM, Accenture, and HCL.
