Oracle opens second cloud region in France to improve services

Oracle has opened a second cloud region in France to better support service providers and enterprises.

In addition to the Oracle Cloud Marseille region in the south of France, the firm has opened its La Courneuve facility, near Paris.

The dual-region strategy enables French customers to deploy resilient applications in multiple geographical locations in-country.

“Organisations have reached a critical milestone in how they deploy data for strategic planning and operations," said Christophe Negrier, general manager for Oracle France. "Oracle is helping customers realise their cloud-first strategy to grow faster, become more sustainable, and increase their security posture with Oracle's two cloud regions in France and 38 cloud regions worldwide."

The new Paris region expands Oracle Cloud's European presence, which already includes more than ten cloud regions in Frankfurt, London, Zürich, Amsterdam, Milan, Stockholm and Newport in Wales already live, and with Madrid due to come online this year.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) services available in the Oracle Cloud Paris region include Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes and the Oracle Cloud VMware Solution.

Jacques Orsini, deputy director of SNCF - e.SNCF Solutions, said: "SNCF is delighted that Oracle, one of its technology partners, is continuing to invest in France."

Frederic Malicki, chief technology officer of Southern Europe for Atos, added: "The opening of a second region in Paris is great news and demonstrates Oracle's commitment to Europe. This new cloud region will allow our clients to deploy more use cases and accelerate their move to the cloud, leveraging the Atos One Cloud portfolio."
