On May 12, 2021, Oracle announced that its second Brazilian cloud region would be in Vinhedo, a city in Sao Paolo. After the launch, Oracle’s Gen2 Cloud will be available across 30 locations. The tech company is on its way to having a total of 38 cloud regions up and running fast by the end of 2021.
The new region will make Oracle the only cloud provider with two regions in Brazil. Since last year, Oracle has had a presence in Brazil when it launched its first Sao Paulo region.
Oracle aims to build at least two regions in most countries that operate cloud infrastructure. It is situated everywhere to help enterprises recover from disasters and meet data residency requirements. It allows customers to gain confidence for their business development if they are thinking of moving critical systems to the cloud
“We have a set of requirements to ensure we’re providing the highest levels from an availability perspective and a scale perspective that can meet our needs and the needs of our customers,” Oracle CIO Jae Sook Evans told ZDNet.
Oracle and Microsoft collaborated and launched their interoperability in 2019 and have already gained six live interconnects in London, Amsterdam, Tokyo, San Jose, Montreal, and Ashburn.
The collaboration between Oracle and Azure is a significant element of Oracle’s expanding portfolio of multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud initiatives.
In the initial part of the year, Oracle announced that TIM Brasil, the largest telecom provider of Brazil, will implement interconnect as a part of the plan to migrate all the on-premises workloads to the cloud.
Oracle has multiple cloud regions across eight countries, including the US, Canada, South Korea, Japan, India, Australia, and the UK. There are also numerous regions of Oracle within the European Union (EU).
Oracle is landing new customers with the expanding cloud infrastructure. And it may appeal to the existing set of customers, and the credit goes to robust databases and enterprise applications.
