Oracle Cloud growth driving aggressive global expansion

12 Feb 2018 New York - Driven by strong customer demand for its Cloud services worldwide, Oracle has launched plans to significantly expand its modern Cloud infrastructure footprint. The company's rapid expansion plans include the opening of 12 new data centre regions and increase the breadth and depth of Oracle Cloud services available across Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Oracle continues its industry leadership position, delivering a complete and integrated portfolio of Cloud services (SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS) and new services in security, Blockchain, and Artificial Intelligence.

"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", stated 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."

The regional expansion of Oracle's Cloud footprint will include locations in Asia including China, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and South Korea; Europe including Amsterdam and Switzerland; and North America including two in Canada and two new US locations to support U.S. Department of Defense workloads.

Since launching Oracle Cloud, the company has seen an ever-growing set of customers, across the Global 2000, as well as small and medium businesses. Organisations continue to turn to Oracle at record-rates to build, deploy, and extend game-changing applications and run business-critical workloads in a low-latency, highly available, reliable and secure cloud environment. Today, customers in more than 195 countries are running their most demanding applications on Oracle Cloud Platform and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
