Five New Data Centres Added to Oracle's Cloud Computing”

Oracle Corp on Monday said that it has completed adding new cloud data centers in five countries.

The openings bring to ten the number of cloud regions Oracle has opened over the past six months. Oracle plans to add a second region in Saudi Arabia later this year, as well as two regions in the UAE.

Oracle has also announced its plans to put a minimum of two regions in nearly every country where it operates, and claimed these new regions "mark a big step toward this goal".

The launches come on the heels of 10 new regions Oracle added in the past year.

"We now offer preconfigured, high-bandwidth, low-latency links between Oracle and Microsoft cloud regions in the Eastern United States, London, and Toronto, with more expected to go live soon", he said. It must give more confidence to business customers who want to move critical systems to the cloud.

Oracle didn't have a great start to it cloud business which saw the likes of Amazon and Microsoft taking the lead.

Five New Data Centres Added to Oracle's Cloud Computing

With current capital expenditure trends among the largest cloud services providers, Oracle's massive investment is necessary to keep pace with competitors in a rapidly growing market.

Besides data residency and compliance issues, cloud regions are also important to satisfy the performance demands of enterprise customers, Constellation Research Inc. analyst Holger Mueller told SiliconANGLE. In a blog post, Oracle Director of Product Management Andrew Reichman said the company has partnered with Microsoft to offer a "unique multicloud interconnection" between Oracle and the Azure cloud.

Oracle is the modern platform for retail.

"We march toward the ultimate goal of giving you a fully autonomous cloud".

That said, building cloud regions is not the be-all and end-all of Oracle's cloud strategy. In Japan, for example, all 10 of the largest companies in the country that use Oracle Cloud. In Europe, it already has commercial Cloud Infrastructure Data Centres in London, Frankfurt and Zurich, on top of the new Amsterdam data centre, with one planned for Newport in Wales.

Al Thehaiban said Saudi Arabia is one of the fastest growing cloud adoption markets in the region and that the opening of the data center will add pace to the adoption rate.
