Amsterdam is one of two European locations and 12 worldwide, in which Oracle will open a new data centre. The California-based global provider of enterprise cloud computing is expanding to grow its regional cloud infrastructure footprint. The new data centres will support new security, blockchain and artificial intelligence developments.
“The future of IT is autonomous. With our expanded, modern data centres, 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 data centre expansion, we are able to help customers lower IT costs, mitigate risks and compete like they never have before.”
Oracle’s plan also includes locations for new data centres in the U.S., Canada, Switzerland, China, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and South Korea. The company’s expansion continues the growth of American tech companies in the Netherlands.
