Oracle Cloud at a glance

Worldwide and on-premises

Oracle Cloud is available globally from 40 cloud regions, and we are adding new regions more than twice as fast as other providers. Our goal is to offer regions in proximity to our customers to meet their data sovereignty requirements while providing true disaster protection with multiple geographically distributed cloud regions in every country. We currently have at least two regions in nine countries and the European Union.

Oracle Cloud serves commercial businesses, the U.S. and UK governments, and the U.S. Department of Defense with distinct regions that meet specific security, compliance, and other tenancy requirements.

Oracle also has unique hybrid cloud options, including Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer, which offers Oracle Cloud services on the customer’s premises. This solution provides customers access to all cloud services—current and future—the same SLAs for availability, performance, and management, and consistent APIs for simplified management.

Performance and reliability

OCI's next-generation architecture provides a high-performing, resilient foundation for cloud services.

OCI’s physical and virtual network design maximizes performance and security, and enables the fast provisioning and on-demand consumption of more than 100 cloud services, including unique bare metal GPUs, clustered databases (Oracle Real Application Clusters), and Oracle Exadata database-optimized shapes. OCI is the only major provider that offers financially backed performance SLAs for networking, block storage, and storage within compute instances.

Within each cloud region, customers can distribute their applications across at least three fault domains, a grouping of hardware and infrastructure that enables protection against common hardware or power failures, while also supporting rolling maintenance. Multiple availability domains in some regions provide additional resiliency.

High availability

Each Oracle Cloud region contains at least three fault domains, which are groupings of hardware that form logical data centers for high availability and resilience to hardware and network failures. Some regions (Ashburn, Phoenix, Frankfurt, and London) provide further resilience to entire data centers through multiple availability domains (ADs), which each contain three fault domains.

For business continuity and compliance requirements, Oracle’s unique dual-region cloud strategy enables customers to deploy resilient applications in multiple geographically separated locations—without having sensitive data leave the country. To help customers plan data center deployments to meet application requirements and optimize their cloud infrastructure, OCI provides a no-cost inter-region latency dashboard that provides insights into real-time and historical latency for Oracle Cloud regions around the globe.

Ten geographies—nine countries and the European Union—currently host multiple cloud regions to enable geographic resiliency within their borders. Along with the five cloud regions currently operating in the EU, OCI has at least two cloud regions in Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Japan, South Korea, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates. Additionally, all Oracle Government Cloud realms in the US and UK contain at least two cloud regions.

Built for every workload

OCI offers more than 100 cloud services, with many more on their way. Our cloud services are open, and they embrace industry standards such as Kubernetes, CloudEvents, and Terraform so that customers can enjoy portability, lower overhead, and lower costs. We built our cloud to deliver the performance and scalability customers need to run the most demanding enterprise workloads and modern cloud native applications. For example, we uniquely offer Oracle Autonomous Database—which is optimized for transaction processing, data warehousing, or JSON, with automatic tuning, scaling, and patching—for both existing and new applications.

Built for Multicloud

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides superior cloud services for many workloads and optimizes multicloud operations, especially with Microsoft Azure. Oracle and Microsoft have a strategic partnership that enables joint customers to run workloads across the two clouds.

This partnership provides a low-latency, cross-cloud interconnect between OCI and Azure in 11 regions, federated identity for joint customers to deploy applications across both clouds, and a collaborative support model.

Customers can run full stack applications in a multicloud configuration while maintaining high-performance connectivity without requiring rearchitecture. They can also migrate existing applications or develop cloud native applications that use a mix of OCI and Azure services.


Oracle is committed to helping customers operate globally in a fast-changing business environment and to address the challenges of an ever more complex regulatory environment. Oracle Cloud Regions are regularly assessed as part of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s compliance programs. We meet more than 80 global, regional, and industry standards including SOC, PCI DSS, HIPAA, HITRUST, and GDPR.

Net zero targets

Oracle Cloud Regions deliver a sustainable computing platform that is efficient and renewable. Our data centers enable higher utilization rates than on-premises systems. We leverage state-of-the-art intelligent energy management and cooling techniques while providing elastic computing platforms that grow dynamically as needed, eliminating excess capacity builds for future demands.

Oracle’s goal is to achieve 100% renewable energy use in all its OCI data centers by 2025.

By having full visibility and control over the hardware at the end of its useful life in Oracle Cloud, Oracle is also able to repurpose equipment more effectively, harvest spare parts, and maximize the recycling of materials.

Additional resources

Enterprise SaaS

Oracle is also taking advantage of our own infrastructure innovation with Oracle Cloud Applications. For the first time, customers can run applications they migrate, applications they build, and a broad range of horizontal and industry SaaS all out of the same cloud. Oracle Cloud Regions can not only run customer workloads but also offer enterprise SaaS such as Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP, Oracle Human Capital Management, and Oracle Supply Chain Planning, providing unmatched speed, security, and continuity.

Globally consistent pricing

For enterprises that want to expand in multiple geographies without constraints, OCI provides a consistent experience in every region, both in terms of performance and cost. Customers can stay within their original budget and forecast cloud spending accurately, regardless of where they deploy applications. In addition, OCI provides a series of controls for you to limit resource access, manage your budget, tune down underused resources, and forecast your spending.

As an example, compare standard compute instance pricing in different geographies on AWS and on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, and you’ll find AWS has significantly higher prices outside of the US. Specifically, the same compute is 56% less expensive in AWS US East than in AWS Brazil. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers consistent global pricing.
