Oracle has announced the opening of its first cloud region in the Nordics to support the increasing cloud computing demands of private and public sector organisations. The Oracle Cloud Stockholm Region will provide customers and partners access to Oracle Cloud services to drive business growth.
The Stockholm region is strategically located to support the digitisation of the Nordic region, consistently ranked among the most digitally advanced in the world. Most recently, Denmark, Sweden and Finland topped the European Union’s 2021 Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI), which tracks the progress made in EU Member States in digital competitiveness in the areas of human capital, broadband connectivity and the integration of digital technologies by businesses and digital public services.
Oracle’s next-generation cloud is now available in 35 regions worldwide with plans to have at least 44 cloud regions by the end of 2022, continuing one of the fastest expansions of any major cloud provider. The Stockholm region strengthens Oracle’s extensive network in the European Union, with Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Marseille already available, a second region in France and one in Italy and Spain planned to open. Oracle Cloud Regions are also already available in the UK and Switzerland.
“It is important that we offer Nordic organisations access to cloud infrastructure locally to help manage their most critical data and applications,” said Pelle Ewald, Country Manager, Oracle Sweden. “We currently see significant growth in our cloud business that reflects our customers’ desire to rapidly scale their digital operations in an effort to continue to best serve their consumers now and in the future.”
“European organisations want to store their data in Europe or in their local country where possible. Oracle’s launch of its new cloud region in Stockholm will enable them to meet this requirement,” said Carla Arend, Senior Program Director, Cloud Research Europe, IDC.Click below to share this article
