Oracle has announced enhancements to its Oracle Cloud EU Region with the addition of “modern” Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) architecture and new IaaS and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud services in Germany.
“Our customers and partners in the EU and in Germany have trusted their businesses and mission-critical workloads to the Oracle Cloud for years,” said Thomas Kurian, president of product development, Oracle. “The expansion of the Oracle Cloud EU Region in Germany will deliver the best cloud services, not only our leading SaaS offerings, but also our new PaaS and IaaS offerings. Oracle will be providing EU-based cloud customers with unmatched performance, availability, and governance, and support of the broadest range of enterprise applications from any cloud platform.”
The Oracle Cloud EU Region in Germany builds on the previously announced Oracle Cloud UK Region. The Oracle Cloud EU Region in Germany is expected to come online in the second half of this calendar year.

The expansion of the Oracle Cloud EU Region in Germany will consist of three “high bandwidth, low latency” sites – or Availability Domains (ADs). These ADs are located within the Frankfurt metropolitan area and operate in a completely fault-independent manner.
This differentiated architectural approach along with cloud technologies like Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), would provide the highest levels of failure protection and availability for Oracle customers’ most demanding cloud-based applications. Availability Domains are deeply integrated into the Oracle Cloud Platform, “easing use and eliminating complex architectural decision-making around availability.”
With this Cloud EU Region expansion news, Oracle will be providing EU-based customers with a comprehensive set of cloud services, including SaaS and the new PaaS and IaaS capabilities to support their journey to the cloud.
“Oracle cloud technology is enabling enterprises to develop new services, create new digital experiences for their customers and compete in new markets,” said Frank Obermeier, vice president and Country Leader, Oracle Germany. “This investment in Germany demonstrates our commitment to provide unrivaled state of the art technology infrastructure where and when our customers need it. This will be particularly important as companies ensure their migration to the cloud complies with impending EU General Data Protection Regulations.”
The Oracle Cloud delivers hundreds of SaaS applications and enterprise-grade PaaS and IaaS services to customers in more than 195 countries while processing 55 billion transactions a day.
