Hi [subscriber:firstname | default:subscriber],

Good Friday! Slow week feature wise but if nothing else a new Region, KIX. And possibility to export data from OCI using Data Transfer Appliance.

New Features

New Region available, KIX, as usual it starts only with one Availability Domain. So where is KIX? It's in Japan, Osaka!
You can use Data Transfer Appliance Export to move Tera or Petabytes of data from multiple Object Storage locations to your own Datacenter. Neat!
