A new data center that supports Oracle Cloud is helping enterprises in Canada transition from on-premise networking infrastructures to a cloud infrastructure. Located in Toronto, the new data center supports customer demand for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Companies can now run traditional and cloud-native workloads on the same platform.
“Enterprises in the region still have limited ability to run mission-critical applications in the cloud,” says Don Johnson, executive vice president, product development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “With this new location Oracle is delivering on its promise to deliver even more customers with consistent, high-performance, low-predictable pricing and the flexibility our cloud brings to the table.”
While cloud adoption has increased, many organizations are still hesitant to make the transition to the cloud due to security concerns and a desire to protect existing investments. First generation public cloud offerings were not architected to accommodate traditional application architectures. Oracle’s next-generation cloud infrastructure is built specifically to help organizations of any size run the most demanding workloads securely while delivering unmatched security, performance, and cost savings.
“Oracle’s innovative cloud technologies will help our commercial and public sector customers in the region transform their business and improve citizen services. The new Toronto data center is supporting the fast-growing customer demand for an enterprise-grade cloud in the region. Canada is a very strategic marketplace for Oracle and we are excited to continue to invest in the country,“ adds Rich Geraffo, executive vice president, North American Technology Division, Oracle.
By the end of this year, the company plans to open additional regions in Australia, Europe, Japan, South Korea, India, Brazil, the Middle East, and the United States, including Virginia, Arizona, and Illinois to support public sector and Department of Defense customers. This expansion complements an existing Edge network consisting of more than 30 global locations and 300 plus sensors, providing Oracle customers with a comprehensive Internet performance data set, and deep edge services capabilities.
