Oracle and Google Partnership: Oracle Database@Google Cloud

On June 11, 2024, Oracle and Google Cloud have unveiled a partnership allowing for a multicloud ecosystem. This will give customers the choice to combine capabilities of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Google Cloud to accelerate application migrations and modernization. Oracle Database@Google Cloud is the new name of the offering. This is Oracle’s latest partnership, after announcing an expanded partnership with Microsoft under the name of Oracle Database@Azure.Oracle and Google partnership - SCHNEIDER IT MANAGEMENT

 

Oracle Database@Google Cloud

To be released later in 2024, Oracle Database@Google Cloud is a new service resulting from the partnership between Oracle and Google Cloud. It allows customers to use Oracle database services directly within Google Cloud datacenters. This service is designed to provide customers with the highest level of Oracle Database performance, feature and pricing parity with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), and the convenience of managing their databases natively on Google Cloud.

 

Oracle Interconnect for Google Cloud

This service facilitates the deployment of workloads across OCI and Google Cloud regions, combining OCI FastConnect and Google Cloud Partner Interconnect for optimal network performance.

Initially, Oracle Interconnect for Google Cloud will be available in 11 global regions, allowing customers to deploy workloads without incurring cross-cloud data transfer charges. These regions are:

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

The service will soon expand worldwide, offering a unified operating environment for Oracle’s comprehensive database services.
