Separate cloud regions for separate uses

Oracle Cloud regions are organized into separate cloud realms for customers with differing security and compliance needs. Realms are isolated from each other and share no physical infrastructure, accounts, data, resources, or network connections. Customer tenancies exist in a single realm and can only access regions that belong to that realm.

Commercial cloud regions

Oracle Cloud regions accessible to any customer.

Sovereign cloud regions for the European Union

Launching in 2023, these regions are separated from the commercial regions and operated entirely within the European Union.

  • Two regions planned (in Spain and Germany) to support EU customers
  • Designed to address data sovereignty requirements under EU laws
  • Located and operated within the EU by a separate EU legal entity
  • Access to the same services, value, and innovation as the public cloud for the same price

Cloud regions for the US government

A highly secure, enterprise-scale cloud ecosystem that is isolated from commercial customers and built to support regulatory-compliant, mission-critical US public sector workloads. Oracle operates multiple separate cloud realms that are certified under different compliance standards for the US government.

  • Several cloud regions to protect government data
  • U.S. Defense Department (DOD): Impact Level 5–accredited cloud to support DOD’s most sensitive unclassified data
  • US government: FedRAMP High JAB–accredited cloud for US federal and civilian agencies and state and local offices
  • US national security: Air-gapped, isolated cloud to support secret and top secret classified data

Oracle Cloud’s high availability and disaster recovery capabilities

Oracle Cloud’s high availability and disaster recovery capabilities

All OCI regions are architected to enable high availability architectures for applications and databases.

Each region supports high availability architectures using fault domains (FDs) to address the most common issues at a metropolitan scale, similar to the Availability Zones (AZs) offered by other cloud providers. Each fault domain is like a virtual data center with power and network redundancy at the physical level. Software deployment in a fault domain is staggered to minimize the blast radius and helps avoid single points of failure (SPOFs) in resource deployment, ensuring application availability.

For applications with higher availability needs, workloads can add disaster recovery capabilities (extreme reliability architecture) for protection in case an entire data center becomes unavailable. In these cases, OCI recommends replication across dual Oracle Cloud regions to enable geographic disaster recovery. Oracle Cloud regions are in different cities to provide geographical distance and operate on different power grids, network infrastructure, and flood plains, offering resiliency against data center failures and natural disasters. Multiregion architectures that leverage fault domains in each region represent the best option to protect your workloads against geographic disaster.
