Tech: Oracle Adds 12 New Data Centers in an Effort to Reposition itself as a Cloud Infrastructure Company

Tech: Oracle Adds 12 New Data Centers in an Effort to Reposition itself as a Cloud Infrastructure Company

Oracle is making heavy investments in its cloud infrastructure with the addition of 12 new data center locations around the world, the company announced Monday.

“As we invest, our margins will continue to expand. And with our global datacenter expansion, we are able to help customers lower IT costs, mitigate risks and compete like they never have before,” said Oracle co-CEO Mark Hurd in a statement. Mr Hurd was quoted on Business Insider.

The 12 new locations include China, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and South Korea in Asia, as well as Amsterdam and Switzerland in Europe. Oracle will also open two new data centers in both Canada and the US, the news website reported.

Oracle’s cloud services will now have the capacity to automate key operational functions like tuning, patching, backups and upgrades while running to deliver high performance and availability, with an increased emphasis on security.  

In addition, Oracle Cloud Platform is incorporating additional autonomous capabilities specific to application development, app and data integration, and analytics.  

“At Oracle, we are making this a reality. We are weaving autonomous capabilities into the fabric of our cloud to help customers safeguard their systems, drive innovation faster, and deliver the ultimate competitive advantage with smarter real-time decisions,” said Amit Zavery, Oracle Cloud Platform executive vice president of product development.. Mr Zavery was quoted on IT Brief Australia.

Oracle, which made its name and fortune selling on-premise databases, is in the midst of repositioning itself as a cloud provider. However, the company consistently ranks behind other tech giants – including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft, Google, and IBM – in terms of market share.
