Oracle expands global cloud footprint to meet continued triple-digit growth

CloudNetworkingTop Stories

Oracle has announced plans to expand its cloud region footprint to support strong customer demand for Oracle Cloud services worldwide. Over the next year, Oracle will open 14 cloud regions with new locations across Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Latin America. Upcoming cloud regions include Milan (Italy), Stockholm (Sweden), Marseille (France), Spain, Singapore (Singapore), Johannesburg (South Africa), Jerusalem (Israel), Mexico and Colombia. Additional second regions will open in Abu Dhabi (UAE), Saudi Arabia, France, Israel and Chile. Oracle plans to have at least 44 cloud regions by the end of 2022, continuing one of the fastest expansions of any major cloud provider. 

Oracle provides a broad and consistent set of cloud services across 30 commercial and government cloud regions in 14 countries on five continents to serve its growing global customer base. OCI currently operates 23 commercial regions and seven government regions in addition to multiple dedicated and national security regions. 

“Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has seen stellar growth over the past year,” said Clay Magouyrk, Executive Vice President, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “We’ve introduced several hundred new cloud services and features and are continuing to see organisations from around the world increasingly turn to OCI to run their most mission-critical workloads in the cloud. 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, UK, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, India and Australia already have two cloud regions.  

Oracle’s strategy is to meet customers where they are, enabling customers to keep data and services where they need it. Customers can deploy Oracle Cloud completely within their own data centres with  Dedicated Region  and  Exadata [email protected], deploy cloud services locally with public cloud-based management or deploy cloud services remotely on the Edge with Roving Edge Infrastructure. 

OCI’s next-generation architecture provides a high-performing, resilient foundation for cloud services, while its physical and virtual network design maximises performance and security. For example, each Oracle Cloud region contains at least three fault domains, which are groupings of hardware that form logical data centres for high availability and resilience to hardware and network failures. Some regions (Ashburn, Phoenix, Frankfurt and London) provide further resilience to entire data centres through multiple availability domains (ADs), which each contain three fault domains. 

For Business Continuity and compliance requirements, Oracle’s unique dual-region cloud strategy enables customers to deploy resilient applications in multiple geographically separated locations – without having sensitive data leave the country. To help customers plan data centre deployments to meet application requirements and optimise their cloud infrastructure, OCI provides a no cost inter-region latency dashboard that provides insights into real-time and historical latency for Oracle Cloud regions around the globe.
