Cloud software plan to expand its global footprint

November 7th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

To support its customers globally, Oracle plans to launch 20 new Oracle Cloud regions by the end of 2020, for a total of 36 Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regions. Oracle Cloud is scheduled to build new cloud regions in the US, Brazil, UK, European Union, Japan, Australia, India, South Korea, Singapore, Israel, South Africa, Chile, two in Saudi Arabia and two in the United Arab Emirates. Oracle also intends to open two regions for usage by the UK Government and one for the Government of Israel. The company also announced updates to its roadmap for its interconnect with Microsoft Azure. Oracle’s Gen 2 Cloud Infrastructure makes this possible through highly-optimised region deployment technologies, which can implement an entire software defined data centre and customer-facing cloud services in days. Since June 2019, Oracle has announced two commercial regions that are interconnected with Microsoft Azure (Ashburn and London). In the next few quarters, it is globally expanding the interconnect to US West, Asia and Europe. Similar to commercial regions, Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure will extend their interoperability into government regions. This will now enable joint Oracle and Microsoft government customers to more easily move applications to the cloud, preserving their existing technology investments while taking advantage of next generation cloud native technologies.
