Redwood Shores, CA, USA, Aug. 5, 2020 -- Oracle announced its San Jose Cloud Region, marking the company's 25th Cloud Region worldwide. The opening is part of Oracle's aggressive plan to add 11 Cloud Regions by July 2021, bringing its total to 36. Now, North American customers and partners on the west coast have regional access to all of the company's cloud services, including Oracle Autonomous Database and Oracle Autonomous Linux, as well as Oracle Cloud Applications to unlock innovation and securely protect their applications and data. The San Jose site also houses the sixth multi-cloud interconnection between Oracle and Microsoft Azure. These interconnects enable customers to run their mission-critical workloads across Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Azure seamlessly.
"We're doubling-down on our global expansion and rapidly scaling our public cloud around the world to meet growing customer demand," said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. "Enterprises need fully independent Cloud Regions in multiple sites and in-country, to meet data residency requirements and to safeguard disaster recovery measures."
Oracle opened eight Cloud Regions in 2020 and currently operates 25 regions globally. Oracle plans to establish at least two regions in almost every country where it operates. The U.S., Canada, E.U., South Korea, Japan, India and Australia already have two Cloud Regions. Upcoming Cloud Regions include second regions in the U.K., Brazil, U.A.E, and Saudi Arabia, additional E.U. regions in Italy, Sweden, and France; as well as new regions in Chile, Singapore, South Africa, and Israel.
