News from Suiteworld17: NetSuite to double number of datacentres; adding one in Australia
NetSuite today announced plans for new data centres in Asia-Pacific, including one in Australia.
At Tuesday’s opening keynote of Oracle + NetSuite SuiteWorld 2017, Jim McGeever, executive vice-president, NetSuite Global Business Unit, announced the new data centres.
McGeever said NetSuite had five data centres currently, three of which are in the US. By contrast, Oracle’s core strategy is Platform as a Service (PaaS) with 21 state-of-the-art data centres built just in the last few years.
“NetSuite is going to more than double the amount of data centres as soon as possible,” McGeever said.
The new data centres will be rolled out to Chicago, Frankfurt, China, Japan, Singapore and Australia.
McGeever also spoke about the Oracle acquisition of NetSuite, saying that it means “more” for NetSuite’s future.
“More countries, more industries, more products, more customer success,” McGeever said.
Leveraging Oracle’s size and resources allow NetSuite to truly go global, and advance much deeper, much faster, he said.
NetSuite has field offices in about 10 countries, while Oracle has vastly more. NetSuite now has the go-ahead to launch offices in more countries.
He said NetSuite was hiring and would take in more people in FY2018 than they had total employees in 2012.
“NetSuite can deliver to any company, any size, any country, any vertical and is the most widely deployed cloud ERP on the planet,” McGeever said.
