Oracle Launches Bare Metal Cloud Computing Services

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?"
