Oracle plans to open a second cloud region in Singapore.
The new region, which is one of 10 planned public regions to join the 41 regions that Oracle currently operates, will offer over 100 OCI services and applications, including Oracle Autonomous Database, MySQL HeatWave Database Service, Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes, and Oracle Cloud VMware Solution.
“Our upcoming second cloud region in Singapore will help meet the tremendous upsurge in demand for cloud services in South East Asia,” said Garrett Ilg, president, Japan & Asia Pacific, Oracle. “With the new region, Oracle offers customers true business continuity and disaster protection while meeting in-country data residency requirements. As a result, we’re extending our commitment to helping organizations in South East Asia embrace technologies like AI, machine learning, and IoT to address their most complex challenges and achieve more with less.”
The first Oracle Cloud Singapore Region has supported the innovation needs of more than 1,000 customers in South East Asia, including Pacific International Lines and Siam Makro.
