Oracle has expanded its hybrid cloud portfolio with Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure, a new offering that brings core infrastructure services to the edge with Roving Edge Devices (REDs) – ruggedized, portable, scalable server nodes. Using Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure, organizations can run cloud workloads wherever they need them, even in the world’s most remote locations.
Whether it is in the back of a plane, a polar observatory, or an oil tanker in the mid-Atlantic, the power of Oracle Cloud is always accessible with Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure.
The new service is part of Oracle’s comprehensive hybrid cloud portfolio. Global customers across financial services, public sector, healthcare, logistics, and communications industries are using Oracle’s hybrid cloud solutions to support their cloud transformations.
“Customers want choice when it comes to running workloads in the cloud. Each customer has different requirements based on data sovereignty, scale, or wanting the full experience of a public cloud on-premises with all of Oracle’s cloud services,” said Clay Magouyrk, Executive Vice President at Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure is the latest example, delivering core infrastructure services to remote locations. Oracle’s hybrid cloud portfolio essentially delivers a cloud region wherever and however a customer needs it.”
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure delivers core infrastructure services, platform software, “enterprise-grade” security, and applications to the edge and disconnected locations with Roving Edge Devices, ruggedized, portable, scalable server nodes. It enables customers to operate cloud applications and workloads in the field, including machine learning inference, real-time data integration and replication, augmented analytics, and query-intensive data warehouses.
In addition, it delivers cloud computing and storage services at the edge of networks for government and enterprise organizations. This would enable low-latency processing closer to the point of data generation and ingestion, which can provide timely insights into data.
Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure is a fully mobile, connection-independent extension of customers’ Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) tenancy with a similar interface and workflow to provide a consistent, unified experience. An Oracle RED device is equipped with high-performance hardware including 40 OCPUs, an NVIDIA T4 Tensor Core GPU, 512 GB RAM, and 61 TB of storage. It can be clustered into groups of 5 to 15 nodes in a single cluster.
“With Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure, Oracle yet again broadens its hybrid cloud portfolio by giving customers a taste of its public cloud wherever they may need it,” said Sriram Subramanian, Research Director at IDC. “Oracle designed its cloud infrastructure portfolio to make it as easy as possible for customers to move workloads to the cloud. Oracle Roving Edge, along with other offerings of the Oracle Cloud portfolio, gives customers multiple deployment and control options to run their most important workloads.”
