Oracle announced that the regional expansion of its cloud footprint will include Reston, Virginia, and Turkey and they are expected to come online by mid-2017. With this expansion, Oracle says that it will have doubled the regional presence of its cloud platform in the last 24 months, with 29 Regions available globally.
Oracle says that it has planned additional regions to come online in APAC, North America, and the Middle East through mid-2018.
Deepak Patil, Vice President of Development, Oracle Cloud Platform said:
Oracle is committed to building the most differentiated Cloud Platform that delivers on the requirements of a wide array of customer workloads.
This regional expansion underscores our commitment to making the engineering and capital investments required to continue to be a global large scale cloud platform leader.
Oracle announced that each of its planned new cloud regions will consist of a minimum of three high bandwidth, low latency sites. These sites are to be located several miles from each other and operate in a completely fault-independent manner.
