January 17, 2017
plans to bring three new Regions online over the next six months.
The regional expansion of Oracle's cloud footprint will include
Reston, Virginia; London, UK; and Turkey. The new Regions are
expected to come online by mid-2017. With this expansion, Oracle
will have doubled the regional presence of its cloud platform in the
last 24 months, with 29 Regions available globally. Additional
Regions are planned to come online in APAC, North America, and the
Middle East through mid-2018.
Organizations are turning to Oracle at record-rates to build,
deploy, and extend game-changing applications and run
business-critical workloads in a low-latency, highly available,
reliable and secure cloud environment. Today, customers in 195
countries are running their most demanding applications on the
Oracle Cloud Platform.
"Oracle is committed to building the most differentiated Cloud
Platform that delivers on the requirements of a wide array of
customer workloads," said Deepak Patil, vice president of
development, Oracle Cloud Platform. "This regional expansion
underscores our commitment to making the engineering and capital
investments required to continue to be a global large scale cloud
of Oracle's planned new cloud regions will consist of a minimum of
three high bandwidth, low latency sites – or Availability Domains (ADs).
These ADs are to be located several miles from each-other and
operate in a completely fault-independent manner. This unique,
differentiated approach provides the highest levels of failure
protection and availability to Oracle customers' most demanding
cloud applications. Availability Domains are deeply integrated into
the Oracle Cloud Platform, easing use and eliminating complex
architectural decision-making around availability.
"We've been consistently impressed with the speed, availability and
price of Oracle's Bare Metal Cloud. This has, in turn, helped us
grow our business across the world," said Gareth Williams, CEO,
YellowDog. "The new EMEA Regions will enable us to offer an improved
service to our high-end customers in Europe who look to YellowDog to
deliver not only super-fast, super-secure and high availability
cloud rendering, but also super-low latency."
