In a significant move to improve cloud interoperability, Oracle and Google have unveiled a new multicloud offering that integrates Google Cloud and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). This collaboration aims to benefit enterprise customers by allowing seamless application deployment across both cloud environments.

Larry Ellison, Oracle Chairman and CTO, emphasized the growing demand for multicloud solutions: “Customers want the flexibility to use multiple clouds. To meet this growing demand, Google and Oracle are seamlessly connecting Google Cloud services with the very latest Oracle Database technology.” And he add – “By putting Oracle Cloud Infrastructure hardware in Google Cloud datacenters, customers can benefit from the best possible database and network performance.

Initial availability and expansion plans

Initially, the multicloud solution will be available in 11 global regions, including:

  • Australia East (Sydney)
  • Brazil East (São Paulo)
  • Canada South East (Montreal)
  • Germany Central (Frankfurt)
  • India West (Mumbai)
  • Japan East (Tokyo)
  • Singapore
  • Spain Central (Madrid)
  • UK South (London)
  • US East (Ashburn)

These regions will provide a private, low-latency, high-throughput connection between the two cloud providers, promoting seamless interoperability. More regions are planned for future integration, ensuring broader access.
