Oracle CloudWorld Event in Abu Dhabi: A Dedicated Cloud Region
This IDC Market Note discusses relevant news, announcements, and themes from Oracle's CloudWorld 2023 event held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, on May 3, 2023.
"Public cloud adoption has increased in the Middle East. According to a recent IDC survey, most workloads that are now deployed in public clouds are not sensitive; they are generally for testing and development. Local organizations still prefer to deploy sensitive workloads and production applications in private clouds or on-premises datacenters. Oracle's decision to launch a dedicated cloud region for the UAE federal government, in partnership with Injazat, will help the hyperscaler gain share across regulated industries in the country." — Senior Research Analyst Nitesh Rathi, Software and Cloud Computing, IDC META
