Oracle said it plans to expand its cloud infrastructure footprint to 14 new regions as a result of strong customer demand for cloud services worldwide at a time when global cloud revenues for the first half of 2021 have jumped 25% to US$235 billion compared to H1 2020.

The investment will see sites being launched over the coming 12 months, 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 (U.A.E.), Saudi Arabia, France, Israel, and Chile.

Oracle said it plans to have at least 44 cloud regions by the end of 2022. The company has also said it plans to establish at least two cloud regions in almost every country where it operates and where it currently only has one region.

Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, commented: “Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has seen stellar growth over the past year.

“We have introduced several hundred new cloud services and features and are continuing to see organizations from around the world increasingly turn to OCI to run their most mission-critical workloads in the cloud. With the additional Cloud regions, even more organizations will be able to use our cloud services to support their growth and overall success.”

Currently available Oracle Cloud regions:

  • Asia Pacific: Tokyo (Japan), Osaka (Japan), Seoul (South Korea), Chuncheon (South Korea), Mumbai (India), Hyderabad (India), Sydney (Australia), Melbourne (Australia)
  • Americas: San Jose (United States), Phoenix (United States), Ashburn (United States), Toronto (Canada), Montreal (Canada), São Paolo (Brazil), Vinhedo (Brazil), Santiago (Chile)
  • Europe: Frankfurt (Germany), London (United Kingdom), Newport, Wales (United Kingdom), Zürich (Switzerland), Amsterdam (The Netherlands)
  • Middle East: Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), Dubai (U.A.E)
  • Government: Two general U.S. Government regions, and U.S. National Security regions, three U.S. Department of Defense specific Government regions, two in the United Kingdom (London and Newport, Wales)

Elsewhere, and also worth noticing, Oracle, TIM (Telecom Italia) and Noovle, TIM Group’s cloud company, have announced that they have signed a collaboration agreement as part of a plan to offer multicloud services for enterprises and public sector organisations in Italy.

Carlo d’Asaro Biondo, CEO, Noovle, said: “The collaboration with Oracle is a key element for accelerating our Group’s transition to more flexible models and supporting the digitization of businesses and public administration.

“By adopting a multicloud model, we can enrich our offer of high value-added services, enabling our customers to promptly seize the best business opportunities while simultaneously improving efficiency. This partnership also broadens the portfolio of solutions brought to the market by Noovle along with other major cloud players, facilitating openness, interoperability and flexibility.”
