Bengaluru, NFAPost: Oracle Corporation announced that it was chosen to become TikTok’s secure cloud technology provider.
Oracle decision comes at a time when Tiktok is facing global outages with regulators from the US and India. Also, TikTok is going ahead with its strategic move of selling its country specific stake for respective country specific partners.
According to Arvian Research, the technical decision by TikTok is heavily influenced by Zoom’s recent success in moving a large portion of its video conferencing capacity to the Oracle Public Cloud.
Commenting on the development, Oracle Chief Technology Officer Larry Ellison said TikTok picked Oracle’s new Generation 2 Cloud infrastructure because it’s much faster, more reliable, and more secure than the first generation technology currently offered by all the other major cloud providers.
“In the 2020 Industry CloudPath survey that IDC recently released where it surveyed 935 Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) customers on their satisfaction with the top IaaS vendors including Oracle, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, IBM and Google Cloud …. Oracle IaaS received the highest satisfaction score,” said Commenting on the development, Oracle Chief Technology Officer Larry Ellison.
Expressing happiness over taking stake in TikTok, Oracle CEO Safra Catz said as a part of this agreement, TikTok will run on the Oracle Cloud and Oracle will become a minority investor in TikTok Global.
“Oracle will quickly deploy, rapidly scale, and operate TikTok systems in the Oracle Cloud. We are a hundred percent confident in our ability to deliver a highly secure environment to TikTok and ensure data privacy to TikTok’s American users, and users throughout the world. This greatly improved security and guaranteed privacy will enable the continued rapid growth of the TikTok user community to benefit all stakeholders,” said Oracle CEO Safra Catz.
Based on decades of experience securing the world’s most sensitive data, the Oracle Generation 2 cloud was built from the ground up to fully isolate running applications and autonomously respond to security threats.
Oracle will combine its secure cloud technology with continuous code reviews, monitoring, and auditing to provide unprecedented assurance that US TikTok user data is private and secure.
The Oracle Cloud offers a complete suite of integrated applications for Sales, Service, Marketing, Human Resources, Finance, Supply Chain and Manufacturing, plus Highly Automated and Secure Generation 2 Infrastructure featuring the Oracle Autonomous Database.
