Learn more about our pricing and low data egress costs. Learn more about our connectivity models and FastConnect partners.

Separate cloud realms 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

Cloud regions located and operated entirely within the European Union, separated from Oracle's commercial cloud regions.

  • Two regions in Madrid and Frankfurt to support EU customers
  • Designed to help customers align with EU data sovereignty and residency requirements
  • 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

Cloud regions for the UK government

Oracle Cloud operates the first and only sovereign, dedicated dual-region cloud for UK government and defense customers. The realm is designed in collaboration with multiple UK government and defense ministries.

  • Two geographically separated regions in London and Newport as part of the UK government cloud
  • Built to support official-sensitive workloads
  • Follows a sovereign operating model with dedicated UK-based operations, support, and networking

Cloud region for the Australian Government

Oracle Cloud operates a government cloud region that is isolated from commercial customers and built for the Australian Government, including defense customers and their service providers.

Regions and fault domains

Regions and fault domains

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is hosted in regions across the world that are situated in different cities, providing geographical separation. Regions operate on distinct power grids, network infrastructures, and geographic natural disaster areas, such as flood plains. To address common component failures, all regions are designed to support high availability architectures for applications and databases using fault domains (FDs).

Fault domains provide anti-affinity: They let you distribute your instances so the instances are not on the same physical hardware. Each region has at least three fault domains. In regions with multiple availability domains (ADs), ADs can be used for high availability similar to FDs but with a slightly higher latency. Read more about availability domains.

Software deployments across multiple fault domains are staggered to minimize the impact and prevent single points of failure in resource deployment, achieving continuous application availability.

Deploying applications and replicating data to at least two OCI regions helps you with business continuity and disaster protection. In the OCI commercial realm, the following countries already have two cloud regions: the US, Canada, the UK, France, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, India, the United Arab Emirates, and Australia. OCI is continuously building more regions across the world.

OCI has made multiregion architectures secure, easy to build, high performance, and affordable.

  • Each region is interconnected with other regions through a private, redundant, Oracle-managed backbone.
  • OCI provides 10 TB per month of outbound bandwidth at no cost and offers substantially lower prices than other providers for bandwidth usage beyond 10 TB.
  • Traffic between regions and between availability domains is encrypted.
  • OCI landing zones offer predefined secure environments, simplifying the deployment of multiregion applications. Landing zones can easily be provisioned using prebuilt Terraform scripts.

With more than 40 regions globally, you can deploy resources nearby to provide end users with fast access and meet various requirements such as regulatory compliance and data residency requirements.
