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.
The new service is part of Oracle’s comprehensive hybrid cloud portfolio, which provides customers with more flexibility and control over their cloud deployments than other vendors. Global customers across financial services, public sector, healthcare, logistics, and communications industries are using Oracle’s hybrid cloud solutions to support their cloud transformations without the trade-offs in scale, data sovereignty, and control that they have had to make in the past.
“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. Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure is the latest example, delivering core infrastructure services to remote locations,” said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Oracle’s hybrid cloud portfolio essentially delivers a cloud region wherever and however a customer needs it.”
Oracle Roving Edge Infrastructure 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, enabling low-latency processing closer to the point of data generation and ingestion, which provides timely insights into data.
The new offering 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, 512GB RAM, and 61TB of storage, and can be clustered into groups of 5 to 15 nodes in a single cluster, starting at $160 per node per day.
