Oracle Launches Bare Metal Cloud Computing Services

Friday Oct 21st 2016 by DevX Staff

The company continues to expand its cloud computing offerings.

Oracle's Bare Metal Cloud Services are now generally available. The infrastructure as a service offering will initially run out of a US-Southwest region based in Phoenix, but Oracle hopes to add a second region in Ashburn, Va., within a few months.

In order to create the service, Oracle recruited cloud computing veterans from Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. "It was a compellingly awesome proposition for me and others who came to Oracle to work on this project," said Deepak Patil, vice president of development in Oracle's IaaS Platform group. "Thomas [Kurian, Oracle's president of Product Development,] and the rest of Oracle's leadership said, Hey, you guys have built successful, very large-scale, global cloud platforms over the better part of the last decade. You made a lot of mistakes, learned a lot of lessons, and talked with thousands of customers. How would you like to take what you've learned, start with a clean slate, and build the first second-generation cloud platform in the industry? I mean really, how could anyone say no to that?"
