Data centers in19countries
The fastest growing network of global data centers, with 36 cloud regions available and 8 more planned by the end of 2022.
Oracle offers more than 80 cloud infrastructure and platform services. Most regions also offer our Cloud Application (SaaS) portfolio. Across Applications and Infrastructure, with public and hybrid cloud options, Oracle supports local access, regional compliance, and true business continuity.View the Oracle Cloud regions
Oracle Cloud is available globally from more than 30 cloud regions, and we are rapidly building new regions. 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.
Oracle Cloud serves commercial businesses, the US and UK governments, and the US Department of Defense with distinct regions that must 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 range of options provides customers access to all cloud services—current and future—the same SLAs for availability, performance, and management, as well as consistent APIs for simplified management.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s (OCI) 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 80 cloud services, including unique bare metal GPUs, clustered databases (Oracle RAC), and Oracle Exadata database-optimized shapes.
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. Availability Domains in some regions provide additional resiliency.
OCI offers more than 80 cloud services, with many more on their way. Our cloud services are open, and they embrace industry standards like 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 for both existing and new applications, which is optimized for transaction processing, data warehousing, or JSON, with automatic tuning, scaling, and patching.
Oracle Cloud Regions deliver a more 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 has a goal of achieving 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.
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 like Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP, Oracle Human Capital Management, and Oracle Supply Chain Planning, providing unmatched speed, security, and continuity.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Microsoft Azure 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 six 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 re-architecture. They can also migrate existing applications or develop cloud native applications that use a mix of OCI and Azure services.
Oracle Cloud data centers incorporate physical security controls (PDF), such as physical access, alarms, CCTV monitoring, 24X7 onsite guards, and more.
Our data centers align with Uptime Institute and Telecommunications Industry Association ANSI/TIA-942-A Tier 3 or Tier 4 standards, and follow a N2 redundancy methodology for critical equipment operation. Data centers use redundant power sources and maintain generator backups in case of widespread electrical outage.
Temperature and humidity are controlled to align to industry standards, enabling optimal performance. Server rooms are equipped with feature fire-suppression systems to protect Oracle’s equipment.
Data center sites undergo a risk evaluation that considers environmental threats, power availability and stability, vendor reputation and history, neighboring facility functions (for example, high-risk manufacturing or high-threat targets), and geopolitical considerations, among other criteria.
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.
Oracle today announced the opening of its first cloud region in Milan, Italy, to support the increasing cloud computing demands of private and public sector organizations. The Oracle Cloud Milan Region will provide customers and partners access to Oracle Cloud services to drive business growth. Oracle’s next-generation cloud is now available in 36 regions worldwide with plans to have at least 44 cloud regions by the end of 2022, continuing one of the fastest expansions of any major cloud provider.
The Milan region is strategically located in the heart of Italy’s business and industrial hub, supporting some of Italy’s largest public sector organizations and its most important industries including banking, fashion, food and tourism—as well as one of Europe’s largest startup communities.Read the complete article
