Some Oracle Employees Stop Work in Protest of Larry Ellison’s Politics

ORCL DTRUMP

(Bloomberg) -- While a wave of employee activism marked by walk-outs and protests has rippled through Silicon Valley the past few years, Oracle Corp. glided along unscathed. People left their desks Thursday at Oracle offices around the world to protest Chairman Larry Ellison’s fundraiser a day earlier for President Donald Trump, according to people familiar with the matter. News of the fundraiser for Trump’s re-election campaign at Ellison’s home in Rancho Mirage, California, spurred a petition at Change.org from some of the company’s 136,000 employees. Many had asked the company’s human resources officials whether they would be targeted for participating and didn’t receive a response before the protest, so they took the precaution of participating on their own time, the people said. Others who supported the action, but were leery about the company’s potential response, chose to donate money to charitable groups that oppose Trump administration policies rather than leave work, the people said. Some employees received a warning Thursday when trying to access the protest organizers’ website from a work computer: “Access to this site may not be permitted by the Oracle Acceptable Use Policy. However, if user is authorized and has legitimate business reason to access the requested site, then click below to access.

Oracle Adds Data Centers in Five New Countries to Its Cloud Platform

ORCL

This week Oracle announced the addition of five new regions to its Generation 2 cloud platform across the globe. Instead of focusing on traditional Infrastructure- or Platform-as-a-Service, for example, it's focusing on offering bare metal machines, which it says are more secure than cloud VMs -- these claims have been met with a lot of scepticism -- as well as a similar experience to having their own dedicated machines at colocation facilities but without the CapEx. It’s also partnered with Azure to bring direct fiber connections between Oracle data centers and Microsoft’s cloud platform, helping bare metal users take advantage of services offered by traditional clouds. So far these low-latency, high-bandwidth links to Azure are only available in eastern US, London, and Toronto, but the company is promising that more will go live "soon." Oracle has also been working to make sure its cloud plays into its strengths, not only by making its own business software and databases available as SaaS but by optimizing cloud for Oracle software for those who want to take a do-it-yourself approach. Oracle Cloud Expansion. Almost all of the large public clouds have "availability regions" and "availability zones" within those regions, although each platform's definition for those is somewhat different from the others'. But the common thread is they offer customers a way to choose where their data resides and multiple locations in each region for backup.

ORCL

By Stephanie Condon for Between the Lines | February 3, 2020 -- 19:05 GMT (19:05 GMT) | Topic: Cloud. Oracle on Monday announced five new cloud regions, spanning five continents. The other four new regions are in Melbourne, Australia; Osaka, Japan; Montreal, Canada and Amsterdam in The Netherlands.

Oracle has pitched its Gen2 Cloud as purpose-built for the enterprise, but the company remains a niche infrastructure provider, with a fraction of the market share held by Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. However, in its blog post Monday, Oracle said it's moving quickly to build up its infrastructure business, with an automated region building process that lets it expand rapidly. Oracle has also partnered with Microsoft Azure, a much larger public cloud vendor, to offer a unique interoperability partnership that could help Oracle's cloud business make inroads with companies that are adopting multi-cloud strategies. Oracle highlighted the progress it's making in specific regions.

Since then, we’ve developed an approach that supports our plan to quickly meet enterprise requirements around the world,” he said.

Oracle adds cloud data centers in five countries, sets new 2020 target

ORCL

"Overall, the strategy is to put lots of regions around the world to give customers data sovereignty," he said. Each cloud vendor promotes its data center footprint with different terminology, but in most cases a "region" can have multiple data centers in physically separate locations called "availability" zones or domains. Amazon has 22 regions but has 69 availability zones. Oracle on Monday added regions in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Osaka, Japan; Melbourne, Australia; Montreal, Canada; and Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The company plans to add a second region in Saudi Arabia this year, as well as two in the United Arab Emirates. Oracle said the 10 largest businesses in Japan were using its cloud computing offerings, but did not give any names. Oracle's cloud rivals, some with much bigger balance sheets, also continue to add data centers, with Amazon planning five more regions and 16 availability zones. But Deepak Mohan, a research director at IDC, said aiming for geographical reach in the wake of new data regulations, is solid strategy given Oracle's customer base of large businesses.

Utilities Forge Beyond SCADA with Oracle Advanced Distribution Management

ORCL

SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DISTRIBUTECH -- The proliferation of distributed energy resources (DERs) and new field data sources has made managing the energy grid significantly more complex. Based on LiveData's Operational Technology Message Bus (OTMB) server platform, the jointly developed technology is delivered and supported within Oracle Utilities NMS, giving utilities an integrated, real-time grid management platform with a single user interface and point of contact. "Whether a utility is dealing with high DER penetration or simply needing to expand its network control to field devices and sensors, Oracle NMS SCADA applications provide the ability to scale to give grid operators more control, greater flexibility and faster response times," said Brad Williams, vice president of industry strategy at Oracle Utilities. The SCADA capabilities in NMS represents a technological leap beyond legacy solutions. As a fully embedded, scalable component of the Oracle NMS platform, the OTMB communications adapter enables real-time communications to substations, distribution network assets and DERs, as well as grid devices and energy resources well beyond the SCADA network. As such, grid operators get instant visibility across their network, even without an existing distribution SCADA or distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) in place.
