Hyderabad, NFAPost: Oracle, to support burgeoning customer demand for enterprise cloud services, announced its second Cloud region in Hyderabad on Monday.

Hyderabad’s Cloud Region is part of Oracle’s global plans in which it would operate 36 second-generation Cloud Regions by the end of the year.

The Hyderabad Cloud region would enable Indian customers and partners to have access to all Oracle Cloud Services, including Oracle Autonomous Database and Oracle Autonomous Linux, as well as Oracle Cloud Applications, which would help in innovation and driving business growth.

Hyderabad Cloud Region is Oracle’s second in the country after the launch of its Mumbai Cloud Region in 2019. This makes India, Oracle’s latest country with multiple cloud regions available and capability to effectively meet the increasing demand for secure and stable enterprise cloud services.

The Cloud Regions are equipped with strengthened capabilities for business continuity and disaster recovery.

Oracle will provide enterprise customers in India better performance, pricing, and security based on its second-generation Cloud.
With the Hyderabad Cloud Region launch, India joins the US, Canada, Japan, Australia, South Korea, and the European Union in having multiple Oracle Cloud regions that facilitate enterprise-class disaster recovery strategies.

Oracle’s modern, second-generation cloud is built and optimized specifically to help enterprises run their most demanding workloads securely. With unique architecture and capabilities, Oracle Cloud delivers unmatched security, performance, and cost savings.

Oracle’s second-generation Cloud is the only one built to run autonomous services, including Oracle Autonomous Linux and Oracle Autonomous Database, the industry’s first and only self-driving database. Oracle Cloud offers a comprehensive cloud computing portfolio, from application development and business analytics to data management, integration, security, artificial intelligence (AI), and blockchain.

Garrett Ilg, Oracle’s Executive Vice President of Japan and the Asia Pacific region said the dual Cloud Regions would send Oracle’s intention to renewing its commitment to growth. “Enterprises across JAPAC are turning to Oracle Cloud to rapidly improve performance and accelerate innovation to launch new products faster to market and create incredible customer experiences. With Oracle opening dual cloud regions in Australia, Japan, Korea and now India, we are further renewing our commitment to support growth in the new decade,” Ilg said.

Oracle’s unique dual region strategy enables customers to deploy resilient applications in multiple independent cloud regions for disaster recovery — without having sensitive data leave the country, thereby complying with regulatory requirements around data sovereignty as well as operational issues associated with operating in multiple countries. 

Shailender Kumar, Regional Managing Director, Oracle India, said, “A large number of Indian organizations are looking to change growth orbits with a greater focus on cloud-led innovation. With two Oracle Cloud regions live in India, we’re fully geared to support our 15, 000 plus customers in their innovation journey, with adequate support by nearly 1000 specialized Oracle partners.”

Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary, Industries & Commerce and IT, Government of Telangana lauded Oracle on being their trusted technology partner. “Oracle continues to be a trusted technology partner for us, powering a large number of our citizen-centric services. We congratulate Oracle India on opening their second Cloud region in Hyderabad. This will surely help both public and private enterprises in our state to take advantage of Oracle cloud services,” Ranjan said.

Oracle opened 20 Cloud regions in the past year and currently operates 24 regions globally – 16 commercial and six government – the fastest expansion by any major cloud provider. By the end of this year, the company plans to open additional new cloud regions in the US (San Jose, CA), Brazil (Vinhedo), the UK (Cardiff, Wales), Singapore, Israel, South Africa (Johannesburg), Chile (Santiago), Saudi Arabia and two in the United Arab Emirates.

Indian Customers, Partners Welcome Hyderabad’s Oracle Cloud Region

Hyderabad, NFAPost: Oracle announced the launch of its second Cloud Region in India in Hyderabad on Monday. The Cloud Region is part of Oracle’s global plans in which it would operate 36 second-generation Cloud Regions by the end of the year.

The Cloud Regions are equipped with strengthened capabilities for business continuity and disaster recovery.

Oracle will provide enterprise customers in India better performance, pricing, and security based on its second-generation Cloud.
Oracle’s customers – large and midsize organizations across India – who use Oracle Cloud to run their mission-critical workloads have lauded and welcomed the Hyderabad’s Cloud Region. 

Raveendrababu BN, Executive Director, Manappuram Finance Limited, one of India’s top NBFCs said Manappuram’s shift to using Oracle’s modern cloud platform promises guaranteed growth and would help in gaining performance improvements.

“Manappuram is helping several customers realize their near-term aspirations, empowering many people with an on-ramp for upward mobility. Underpinning our business is modern technology, which allows us to serve customers better, faster and more efficiently.

“To make our organization more robust and support our next growth curve, we wanted to run our business on a secure, modern cloud platform. After much consideration, we decided to go with Oracle’s second-generation Cloud for their enterprise-grade features – primarily topnotch security and extreme performance capabilities. With Oracle Cloud, we’ll gain 2X-3X performance improvements over the next 5 years vis-à-vis our current IT setup, while also unlocking 30-40 per cent additional cost savings,” Raveendrababu added.

For BITS, Pilani, a premier institute for higher education in India, moving to Oracle cloud helped them focus on core priorities. Ramachandra P, Head-IT at BITS Pilan, said the institute had a complex, hybrid IT landscape spanning multiple campuses.

“Different departments were using varied applications, so coordinating with many different technology providers was further adding to the complexity. Also, our traditional IT infrastructure was stressed with seasonal spikes in demand, especially during student enrollment. By moving to Oracle Cloud, we’re able to focus more on our core priorities,” said Ramachandra P, Head-IT at BITS Pilani.

In addition to realizing the enterprise-grade capabilities, such as high performance, ease of scalability and advanced security, Ramachandra P, Head-IT at BITS Pilani said Oracle also help in schieving significant cost savings.


Rajeev Khade, VP & Global Head-IT, Sigma Electric, said his business has gained a 30% improvement in performance and visible cost savings too.

“We wanted to expedite our digitalization and innovation efforts to add value to our business but were constrained by an on-premise IT setup, with application continuity, availability and scaling challenges. Also, managing our own datacenter was becoming a drain on our resources and our efficiency. That’s when we decided to move to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for its enterprise-grade capabilities, including advanced security, guaranteed high performance and high availability. Along with a 30% improvement in performance, the switch to an OPEX IT model will help us realize upfront cost savings to the tune of 20-30%,” Khade added.

One of Oracle’s partner program – Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) – that provides partners with a differentiated advantage to develop, sell and implement Oracle solutions. OPN offers resources to train and support specialized knowledge of Oracle’s products and solutions and has evolved to recognize Oracle’s growing product portfolio, partner base and business opportunity.


The key to the latest enhancements to OPN is the ability for partners to be recognized and rewarded for their investment in Oracle Cloud. Partners engaging with Oracle will be able to differentiate their Oracle Cloud expertise and success with customers through the OPN Cloud program – an innovative program that complements existing OPN program levels with tiers of recognition and progressive benefits for partners working with Oracle Cloud.

Suneratech President and CEO Ravi Reddy said, a digital-first approach, with a strong cloud foundation, has become a critical need for any organization.

“As more and more organizations look to get their businesses back onto the growth track, we anticipate increasing demand for enterprise-grade, secure cloud services in the country. With Oracle’s second-generation Cloud region now live in Hyderabad, organizations can better address disaster recovery, data sovereignty and regulatory compliance,” said Suneratech President and CEO Ravi Reddy.

Together with Oracle, Suneratech President and CEO Ravi Reddy said the company will look to engage with customers more deeply and help them achieve extreme performance, greater security and increased cost savings by using Oracle Cloud.
