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 Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) currently operates 23 commercial regions and seven government regions, in addition to multiple dedicated and national security regions, the company said.
"Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has seen stellar growth over the past year," said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. "We've introduced several hundred new cloud services and features... With the additional Cloud regions, even more organizations will be able to use our cloud services to support their growth and overall success."
Oracle said it plans to establish at least two cloud regions in almost every country where it operates. The United States, Canada, Britain, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, India, and Australia already have two cloud regions.
