Oracle is expanding its cloud region footprint to reduce latency and improve customer performance for its services across Europe.
Over the next year, Oracle says it will open 14 cloud regions with new locations across EMEA, Asia and Latin America.
Upcoming cloud regions include Milan, Stockholm, Marseille, a location in Spain, Singapore, Johannesburg, Mexico and Colombia.
“Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has seen stellar growth over the past year,” said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). “With the additional cloud regions even more organisations will be able to use our cloud services to support their growth and overall success.”
To help customers build true business continuity and disaster protection, while helping them address their in-country data residence requirements, Oracle plans to establish at least two cloud regions in almost every country where it operates. The US, Canada, the UK, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, India, and Australia already have two cloud regions.
Services delivered through the data centres include Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes, Oracle Cloud VMware and Oracle Fusion Cloud applications.
OCI’s network of more than 70 FastConnect global and regional partners offer customers dedicated connectivity to Oracle cloud regions and OCI services.
