Oracle has announced its plans to aggressively expand its modern cloud infrastructure footprint across Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Driven by strong customer demand for its cloud services worldwide, the expansion plans include the opening of 12 new datacenter regions and increase the breadth and depth of Oracle Cloud services.
Oracle remains an industry leader, delivering a complete and integrated portfolio of cloud services (SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS) and new services in security, Blockchain, and Artificial Intelligence.
“The future of IT is autonomous. With our expanded, modern data centers, Oracle is uniquely suited to deliver the most autonomous technologies in the world,” said Oracle CEO Mark Hurd. “As we invest, our margins will continue to expand. And with our global datacenter expansion, we are able to help customers lower IT costs, mitigate risks and compete like they never have before.”
The regional expansion of Oracle’s cloud footprint will include locations in Asia including China, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and South Korea; Europe including Amsterdam and Switzerland; and North America including two in Canada and two new US locations to support U.S. Department of Defense workloads.
Organizations continue to turn to Oracle Cloud at record-rates to build, deploy, and extend game-changing applications and run business-critical workloads in a low-latency, highly available, reliable and secure cloud environment. Today, customers in more than 195 countries are running their most demanding applications on Oracle Cloud Platform and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
