Oracle Launches Exadata Cloud@Customer in Pakistan


Leading organizations in Pakistan will now be able to join those from across Asia Pacific that are turning to Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer to run their businesses and adapt to unpredictable business environments. By delivering high-performance capabilities of Exadata Cloud Service behind a customer’s own data center firewalls it gives them the ability to gain a full public cloud experience and quickly get more value from their data while meeting the country’s strict requirements for data sovereignty and security.

Amer Khan, Senior Director and Head of Cloud Platform Group, Pakistan and Afghanistan said:
“Organizations in Pakistan have been among the earliest adopters of technological advancements in the
region, embracing digital, cloud, and other emerging technologies as they modernize their operations and drive innovation. Now, with the recently announced Cloud-First Policy we expect to see accelerated digital transformation in public sector organizations too. A truly hybrid platform like Exadata, available on premises, in the public cloud, and now as Cloud@Customer, meaning data doesn’t ever have to leave a customer’s data centre, has the potential to really help with that shift. Another important benefit of the
Exadata platform, given that data, is at the heart of digital government transformation, is that it also
makes cutting-edge technologies like Oracle’s autonomous database, which includes built-in machine
learning, more easily available.”
