The regional expansion of Oracle’s cloud footprint will include Reston, Virginia; London, UK; and Turkey. Additional Regions are planned to come online in APAC, North America, and the Middle East through mid-2018.   

Deepak Patil, vice president of development, Oracle Cloud Platform, says the company 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.”

“The new EMEA Regions will enable us to offer an improved service to our high-end customers in Europe who look to YellowDog to deliver not only super-fast, super-secure and high availability cloud rendering, but also super-low latency.”
