NetSuite moves to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

It is now almost 3 years since Oracle’s takeover of NetSuite. When it was first announced, part of the expected benefit for NetSuite was to be the ability to leverage Oracle’s existing global infrastructure. As NetSuite Chief Executive Officer, Zach Nelson said at the time:

“NetSuite will benefit from Oracle’s global scale and reach to accelerate the availability of our cloud solutions in more industries and more countries. We are excited to join Oracle and accelerate our pace of innovation.”

Now, a big step has been taken with the announcement that NetSuite, the world’s #1 Cloud ERP software is moving onto Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).

Oracle Cloud ‘is a Generation 2 enterprise cloud that delivers powerful compute and networking performance and a comprehensive portfolio of infrastructure and platform cloud services. Built from the ground-up to meet the needs of mission-critical applications, Oracle Cloud supports all legacy workloads while delivering modern cloud development tools, so enterprises can bring forward their past as they build their future. ‘ (Source: https://www.oracle.com)

Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud which is autonomous, is specifically designed to meet the needs of Enterprise Companies and offers an impressive formation of advanced Cloud Services. As NetSuite’s client base is typically mid-market companies, NetSuite customers can be assured that the OCI is more than capable of meeting their needs, providing best-in-class security and consistent high performance.




What Is an Autonomous Database?

Oracle’s autonomous database uses machine learning to eliminate the human interaction required for tasks such as database tuning, security, backups, updates, and other routine management tasks.

Self-Driving: Companies can benefit from reduced full-stack admin costs as with Oracle Autonomous Database the management of the database and infrastructure is automated, as is monitoring and tuning.

Self-Securing: Oracle Autonomous Database automatically encrypts all data meaning your company is protected from cyberattacks and careless internal users, reducing the risk from growing security threats.

Self-Repairing: Oracle Autonomous Database will automatically detect errors and take corrective action meaning you have non-stop access to your data.


How the Oracle Autonomous Database Works


Of NetSuite’s existing customers, those based in the London and Frankfurt datacentres have already moved on to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Over the next 18 months, NetSuite is aiming to go live in a total of 18 OCI data centres across the US, EMEA and JAPAC. By Spring 2020 100% of new NetSuite customers in Europe will also be on OCI. Eventually, the goal is to have all NetSuite customers provisioned on OCI, although NetSuite hasn’t yet revealed a time frame for moving the remainder of existing customers.

The investment costs of this side of the business will also be carried by Oracle which should make NetSuite even more competitive. This is a good step for NetSuite, as Oracle takes care of the data, NetSuite can focus on what it’s really good at – innovation, so we can expect plenty of advancements in the software in the next few years.


When we speak with potential clients, one of the biggest areas of concern is the storage and management of their data. It’s a legitimate concern too, particularly with GDPR legislation and one of the most critical areas of running a business in the 21st century. Your data is valuable, and a breach or loss is potentially fatal, not only leading to the possibility of large fines but loss of trust in you by your customers. The comfort of knowing NetSuite keeps your data in one of the most advanced and secure databases on the planet will reduce risk and allow you to focus on what you’re good at – growing your business.
