Oracle Lands at the Top in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Strategic Cloud Platform Services

Oracle has been named a Leader in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Strategic Cloud Platform Services, previously known as Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Services.

“We believe this recognition further demonstrates Oracle’s growth in this key category and places OCI among the four global hyperscale cloud providers in the Leaders Quadrant,” said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Our unique distributed cloud strategy is designed to meet our customers diverse needs and support the growing global demand for OCI. Today, organizations of all sizes and across all industries rely on OCI to give them the flexibility, performance, scale, and availability they need. With built-in-by-default security safeguards and better price performance than other hyperscalers, we expect to continue to strengthen our position.”

Gartner defines strategic cloud platform services as standardized, automated, public cloud offerings integrating infrastructure services (e.g., computing, network and storage), platform services (e.g., managed application and data services) and transformation services (programs/resources that help customers adopt cloud-oriented IT delivery models).

Oracle delivers IaaS, PaaS, as well as SaaS services. This enables Oracle to give customers more choice in how and where they run their applications, including across clouds or in a distributed system.

According to Oracle, this flexibility makes it easier for organizations to meet data sovereignty and other regulatory requirements. Organizations of all sizes are using OCI’s differentiated cloud services.

OCI recently introduced several distributed cloud offerings to the market, including Oracle Database@Azure, Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud, and MySQL HeatWave Lakehouse on AWS. In addition, increased adoption of Oracle Alloy, an award-winning cloud infrastructure platform, has seen customers such as TEAM IM and Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (NRI) innovate at the speed of hyperscalers.

OCI’s distributed cloud model offers customers the same 100-plus OCI cloud services with consistent pricing and in locations that meet their needs, providing more flexibility than other public clouds.

This enables OCI to meet requirements even for customers in highly regulated industries. OCI currently offers 46 public cloud regions across 23 countries, including two EU Sovereign Cloud regions, to address data residency and data sovereignty requirements in that region.

Oracle also operates separate U.S., U.K., and Australian Government Clouds, and Isolated Cloud Regions for U.S. national security purposes.

Additionally, customers can also run OCI cloud services in their own data centers while partners can customize their own branded cloud services using Oracle Alloy.

OCI has garnered consistent industry recognition for its cloud platform services. OCI was named a Leader in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Distributed Hybrid Infrastructure.
