Oracle Adds New Cloud Data Centers In 5 Continents


Expanding its cloud footprint, Oracle has added new cloud regions in Saudi Arabia (Jeddah), Australia (Melbourne), Japan (Osaka), Canada (Montreal), and The Netherlands (Amsterdam).

“We’ve already opened 10 cloud regions in the last six months, and with these five new regions, we now have Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud available in 21 fully independent locations,” Oracle said.

The database giant said it is targeting 36 cloud regions available by the end of 2020.

Oracle plans to put a minimum of two regions in almost every country where they operate. The United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, South Korea, India, and Brazil will also have two regions live by the end of 2020.

Four of these new regions—Osaka, Melbourne, Montreal, and Amsterdam—give customers a second site within the same country. The fifth region, in Saudi Arabia, will be joined by a second region later this year.
