0 135

The US Department of Defense (DoD) has authorised Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to host Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmentalized Information (TS/SCI) and Special Access Program (SAP) missions, according to an announcement made by Oracle on Tuesday. This adds to Oracle’s increasing list of government accreditations, which now include FedRAMP High and DoD Impact Level 5 workloads.

Oracle National Security Regions (ONSR) will be used by the Department of Defense, which are dedicated Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regions that are separated from the internet and connected to only government-specified networks that match the required security classifications. The Authority to Operate (ATO) was issued by DoD assessors, allowing secure processing of some of the Air Force’s most sensitive data. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services such as OCI Container Engine for Kubernetes and Oracle Database Cloud Service are used by the Air Force. This includes accelerating data analysis with Oracle Exadata Cloud Service’s spatial and graph functionalities.

In addition to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s global network of US DoD, US FedRAMP, and commercial cloud regions, Oracle has additional National Security Regions. National Security Regions are designed to host missions at DISA Impact Level 6/Secret and Top-Secret security levels, with capabilities such as robust encryption and security controls, as well as in-depth auditing, and fulfill both ICD 705 and ICD 503 criteria. National Security Regions are designed to provide cloud services that are equivalent to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure commercial regions.

“Oracle has long provided high performance, high availability, and open computing to the DoD and Intelligence Community to securely run their most-demanding, mission-critical classified workloads. Oracle’s broad data management services and analytics, including built-in AI, are immensely valuable additions to the DoD’s multi-cloud strategy,”

said Glen Dodson, senior vice president, National Security Group, Oracle.  

Oracle has been a strategic technology partner of the US government for many years. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure supports the Department of Defense’s data directives, as well as the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Acceleration Initiative (ADA), using open data standards and an architecture powered by embedded machine learning. Oracle is used by many federal, state, and municipal government customers to supply important government services. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is used by the US Army, Navy, and Air Force, as well as other military agencies and the Pentagon’s Office of the Secretary of Defense. Oracle’s industry-leading solutions are used by over 1,000 public sector organisations throughout the world.
