NetSuite plans to double global data centre footprint

NetSuite has announced that it plans to expand its global data centre footprint to more than double of its current footprint.

The move would come as part of global expansion initiatives designed to boost international growth.

The company, which was acquired by Oracle in 2016, together became Oracle NetSuite Global Business Unit (GBU).

NetSuite currently operates five data centres across North America, Amsterdam, Netherlands and Dublin and is in plans to add a fourth site in North America.

Jim McGeever, EVP, Oracle NetSuite Global Business Unit, speaking at the company’s SuiteWorld conference in Las Vegas said:: “Leveraging Oracle’s global scale, we are able to massively accelerate NetSuite’s vision of bringing a single unified suite to companies all over the world.

“Oracle’s technology infrastructure and global reach enables us to help ensure customer success no matter where they are located in the world.”

The business also has plans to launch data centre sites in Australia, Singapore, Japan and China. The partnership of Oracle’s data centres joined with NetSuite’s operations is expected to offer better security, redundancy, performance and scalability for both new and existing customers across the globe.

According to McGeever’s announcement at this week’s Suite World conference 2017, the budget for all new data centre plans have been confirmed, along with doubling of its data centre estate, an increase in field offices and other expansion initiatives.

In relation to its increase in field offices, NetSuite also expects to double its global presence. This means an expansion from its current state of offices in 10 countries, to 23 across the world.

Oracle’s field offices will also effectively boost NetSuite’s plan to meet the increasing demand for cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
