Oracle selected as UK MoD cloud provider

Oracle has announced that Defence Digital, the UK Ministry of Defence’s technology arm, has added it to its list of assured public cloud providers.

Defence Digital oversees the deployment of IT tools and services to members of the military as well as providing the UK’s defence community with access to certified and assured private and public cloud services.

Oracle is now approved to process and store data for the UK defence community, with its flexible hybrid cloud infrastructure enabling the choice and scale of technologies to manage data in a highly compliant environment.

Richard Petley, Oracle UK senior vice president and country leader, said: “By adopting Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, the Ministry of Defence will be one step closer to realising its wider transformation strategy. The MoD will capitalise on the choice and economic benefits Oracle Cloud Infrastructure can provide, all of which will help meet challenges that lie ahead.”
