Google Cloud to deliver managed Oracle data centre service with Atos

Written by Tue 2 Jul 2019

New offering will be available in the second half of 2019 

Google is expanding two of its data centres in Germany and North America in order to provide its cloud customers with local access to managed, cloud-based versions of Oracle database services.

Google is partnering with technology partner Atos on the expansions, equipping the facilities with the company’s BullSequana S servers to run the workloads.

Atos said the modular and scalable servers can be customised to customer needs, thus optimising costs for Oracle users. The company will also be managing the Oracle service, which will be available to Google Cloud customers in the second half of 2019.

Thierry Breton, Atos chairman and CEO said the solution represents an expansion of its partnership with Google Cloud:

“This announcement reinforces all the fruitful work we have done together over the last year, which has seen us bring our customers new end-to-end offers (encompassing AI, ML, Hybrid Cloud and Digital Workplace), and innovative services such as our joint customer AI Labs in Europe and in the US, to enable them to transform their business,”  he said.

Thomas Kurian, Google Cloud CEO and ex-Oracle president, said that customers are increasingly demanding the ability to take advantage of GCP features while running Oracle database software.

“This solution from Atos means Oracle database customers can take advantage of Google Cloud’s performant infrastructure and scale, as well as our strengths in areas like AI and ML, backed by Atos’ expertise in business transformation and migration,” Kurian said.
