Australian Data Centres forms alliance with Oracle
Under the agreement, Oracle will host services within Australian Data Centres’ state-of-the-art secure data centre facility in Canberra for government use.
The Australian Data Centres facility will effectively act as another cloud region for Oracle in the Australian market.
Oracle said the agreement will extend the company’s portfolio of services to government, particularly across secure workloads in National Security, Health, Human Services and other departments and agencies dealing with the sensitive data.
“Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer makes it easier for government entities to securely move to the next stage of their cloud-enabled transformation,” Oracle Vice President and Regional Managing Director ANZ Cherie Ryan said.
“It builds on our strong momentum in the Canberra market and provides the equivalent of a third Australian cloud region, complementing our existing investments in second-generation cloud regions in Melbourne and Sydney.”
Australian Data Centres operates a sovereign, Tier III certified data centre designed to be highly resilient with no single point of failure. The facility has efficiencies built into all levels of its technical design and implementation.
Oracle recently also established a whole-of-government procurement arrangement with the Digital Transformation Agency to make it easier for government agencies to purchase Oracle products and services.
The company has also recently disclosed that a number of key components of its Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications suite had been assessed by an Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessor against the Information Security Manual (ISM) PROTECTED controls.
