“Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has seen stellar growth over the past year,” said Clay Magouyrk, EVP – Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
“We’ve introduced several hundred new cloud services and features and are continuing to see organisations from around the world increasingly turn to OCI to run their most mission-critical workloads in the cloud,” added Magouyrk.
These additional cloud regions, according to Magouyrk will allow more organisations to use Oracle cloud services to support their growth and overall success.
To address customers’ need for business continuity, disaster protection and their in-country data residence requirements. It plans to establish at least two cloud regions in almost every country where it operates. The U.S., Canada, U.K., South Korea, Japan, Brazil, India, and Australia already have two cloud regions.
