Oracle includes Spain in cloud region expansion

It will open its first data centre in Spain in the coming year, from where it will provide all its cloud services 

Oracle has announced a plan to expand its presence with cloud regions around the world to support strong demand from customers working with Oracle Cloud services. Over the next year, the company will open 14 cloud regions in Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Latin America. These will include the US company's first data centre in Spain, which will provide all its cloud services. "Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has seen stellar growth over the past year", said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. "We've 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".

Oracle plans to make the leap from the current 30 commercial and government cloud regions located in 14 countries on five continents and expand to 44 regions by the end of 2022. The multinational's strategy is to reach customers exactly where they are located, allowing them to keep data and services where they need them. Users can deploy Oracle Cloud entirely within their own data centres with Dedicated Region and ExdataCloud@Customer, allowing them to implement local cloud services with public cloud-based management. The company also aims to improve investments in the countries where it operates and achieve triple-digit growth.
