Oracle has announced the opening of two new European cloud regions in Milan and Stockholm.
With strong customer demand for Oracle Cloud services, Oracle now has 36 regions worldwide with plans to have at least 44 cloud regions by the end of 2022, marking one of the fastest expansions of any major cloud provider.
Oracle’s first cloud region in Milan, Italy, was opened 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.
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 start-up communities. Over half of Italy’s industrial and business activity is based in the Lombardy region, which produces almost a quarter of Italy’s GDP.
In addition, with its first cloud region in the Nordics, Oracle is supporting the increasing cloud computing demands of private and public sector organizations. The Oracle Cloud Stockholm Region will provide customers and partners access to Oracle Cloud services to drive business growth.
The Stockholm region is strategically located to support the digitization of the Nordic region, consistently ranked among the most digitally advanced in the world. Most recently, Denmark, Sweden and Finland topped the European Union’s 2021 Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI), which tracks the progress made in EU Member States in digital competitiveness in the areas of human capital, broadband connectivity and the integration of digital technologies by businesses and digital public services.
Additional regions are planned in (Madrid) Spain, Johannesburg (South Africa), Mexico, and Colombia, and second regions will open in Abu Dhabi (U.A.E.), Saudi Arabia, France, Israel, and Chile.
