Oracle Expands UK Presence with Dedicated Oracle Government Cloud

Are you working in the Public Sector and concerned about your critical data and where it is stored? Oracle are leading the way with the new dedicated UK Government Cloud or “Government Cage”. With your data never leaving the UK and the Cyber Essentials Plus certificate, this award winning offering is now being endorsed by the UK Government.

Mike Parsons, Director General, Capabilities and Resources at the Home Office said, “The security of our data is of paramount importance to us. The solution Oracle has built for us is delivering the security we need, meaning we can confidently begin to move away from our existing on-premise infrastructure and realise the benefits of hosting our business-critical data in the public cloud.”

Dermot O’ Kelly (senior vice president and country leader, Oracle UK Ireland & Israel) stated “Security is at the heart of everything we do, we understand that the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your information is vital to your business. Security is embedded in Oracle’s “DNA”- within the product, the development cycle, and Cloud Operations practices – to ensure your information remains your information. Mission critical data can only be maintained by having the most stringent security measures in place”

As well as having the confidence that your critical data is being looked after by Oracle’s most secure data centers yet, according to Nucleus Research, Cloud delivers 2.1 times more return on investment compared to an on-premise solution and Cloud deployments incur 63 percent lower initial consulting cost than on-premise ones. Whilst It’s not all about money savings, it’s also good news for the environment, because Nucleus also say in an early assessment that cloud applications use 91 percent less energy than on-premise ones.
