In a significant move to enhance cloud interoperability, Oracle and Google have unveiled a new multicloud offering that connects Google Cloud and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). This collaboration aims to benefit enterprise customers by allowing them to deploy applications seamlessly across both cloud environments.

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

“Oracle and Google Cloud have many joint enterprise customers,” said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet. “This new partnership will help these customers use Oracle database and applications in concert with Google Cloud’s innovative platform and AI capabilities.”

Initially available in 11 global regions, Google Cloud’s Cross-Cloud Interconnect will enable customers to handle general-purpose workloads without incurring cross-cloud data transfer charges. Regions include 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), and US East (Ashburn). More regions will be added in the future, providing a private, low-latency, high-throughput connection between the two cloud providers, promoting seamless interoperability and enabling customers to:

  • Innovate using the best combination of Oracle’s and Google Cloud’s services.
  • Utilize a direct interconnection between OCI and Google Cloud for low-latency network performance.
  • Run multiple Oracle applications with distributed data stores across OCI and Google Cloud.
  • Develop new cloud-native applications using Google Cloud and OCI technologies, including Google Cloud’s enterprise-grade AI technologies.

Later this year, Oracle Database@Google Cloud will be launched, offering the highest level of Oracle database and network performance, along with feature and pricing parity with OCI.

The Oracle Database@Google Cloud service allows customers to access Oracle database services running on OCI, deployed in Google Cloud data centers. This new service aims to accelerate cloud migration, enabling businesses to modernize their IT infrastructure and leverage Google Cloud’s infrastructure, tools, and AI services, such as data analytics, Vertex AI, and the Gemini foundation models.

Key benefits for customers include:

  • Flexible Migration: Simplified and accelerated migration of Oracle databases to Google Cloud, compatible with tools like Oracle Zero-Downtime Migration.
  • Streamlined Purchasing: A simplified purchasing and contracting process via Google Cloud Marketplace, allowing the use of existing Google Cloud commitments and Oracle license benefits.
  • Unified Experience: Combined customer support and experience from Google Cloud and Oracle.
  • Integrated Operating Environment: A secure, low-latency unified operating environment within Google Cloud to deploy a full range of Oracle database services.
  • Enhanced AI Integration: Connecting Oracle data with Google’s AI services, enabling advanced AI applications across various business domains.

Oracle and Google will jointly market Oracle Database@Google Cloud, providing significant benefits to enterprises worldwide across various industries, including financial services, healthcare, retail, and manufacturing.

The new multicloud capabilities offer a fully integrated experience for deploying, managing, and utilizing Oracle database instances within Google Cloud. This integration allows for seamless data movement and the deployment of new cloud-native applications across both cloud environments. Consequently, organizations can achieve breakthroughs in the cloud by leveraging their existing skills and the combined strengths of Oracle and Google Cloud.
