“Enterprises need fully independent Cloud Regions in multiple sites and in-country, to meet data residency requirements and to safeguard disaster recovery measures,” said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

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 would enable customers to run their mission-critical workloads across Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Microsoft 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.”

Commercial and Government Cloud Regions

Oracle opened eight Cloud Regions in 2020 and currently operates 25 regions globally – 19 commercial and six government. To help customers build true business continuity and disaster protection while meeting in-country data residence requirements, Oracle plans to establish at least two regions in almost every country where it operates.
