In order to fulfill the country’s quickly expanding demand for business cloud services, Oracle created its first Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) region in Spain. With the opening of the new cloud region in Madrid, Oracle’s public and private sector clients and partners in Spain will have access to a variety of cloud services that will help them update their applications, experiment with data and analytics, and move mission-critical workloads from their data centers to OCI.
The new Madrid area will include more than 100 OCI services, including the converged database capabilities of Oracle MySQL HeatWave and Oracle Autonomous Database, making it the 40th cloud region overall for Oracle. Organizations in Spain may increase IT and operational efficiency, gain quicker insights from their data, and create and deploy cloud-native apps with the aid of this comprehensive range of cloud services offered by OCI.
“Local organizations and public institutions are taking firm steps to establish Spain as a country focused on technology-driven innovation,” said Albert Triola, General Manager at Oracle Spain. “With the opening of the Oracle Cloud Madrid Region, we’re reinforcing our commitment to help our customers take advantage of the best cloud technologies while enabling the highest security standards, availability, and performance.”
Madrid is the sixth cloud region for Oracle in the European Union (EU). Organizations would be enabled to build resilient applications across a number of sites to provide catastrophe protection without having to transfer sensitive data outside of the EU. In 2023, OCI intends to provide the EU with brand-new sovereign cloud regions in Germany and Spain.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Ecosystem
Oracle has pledged to supplying all global Oracle Cloud regions with 100 percent renewable energy by 2025, highlighting its continuous commitment to sustainability. A number of Oracle Cloud regions, including those in North America, South America, and 10 cloud regions in Europe (including Madrid), are already entirely powered by renewable energy.
Organizations may access Oracle Cloud regions and OCI services with dedicated connectivity thanks to OCI’s extensive network of more than 75 global and regional OCI FastConnect partners. In comparison to open, Internet-based connections, FastConnect would offer a quick, adaptable, and affordable option to set up a dedicated, private network connection with more bandwidth, reduced latency, and more reliable performance.
The host partner for the new Oracle Cloud Madrid Region’s FastConnect facility is Interxion, a Digital Realty Company. Colt, DECIX, Equinix, and Interxion are some of the partners that are now accessible for the Oracle Cloud Madrid Region.
“The opening of an Oracle Cloud region in Spain is more than good news,” said Ramón Pérez, Chief Sales and Portfolio Officer at Capgemini. “We congratulate Oracle for this decision, which will greatly contribute to the innovation of new products and services in the cloud. This is a great opportunity for our joint customers and, without a doubt, a great boost for their cloud journeys.”
