Oracle announces Data Center plans for India
Oracle announced it will expand its cloud services in India over the next six to nine months with plans for an Oracle data center in India.
Globally, Oracle has over 20 data center and this is the first time the company announced its plans to set up data center in India. This continued expansion is likely to include cloud facilities in India, which would fit into the government’s Digital India plan, said the company.
Over the coming months Oracle will be reviewing proposals from government and business partners to provide customers with the capability to build and move workloads to an India-based cloud. The services will offer uncompromised security and performance at a significant price advantage over both existing on-premises infrastructure and competitive cloud offerings.
Oracle’s expanded infrastructure footprint is a result of tremendous cus- tomer demand.
“Our customers and partners in India have trusted their businesses and mission-critical workloads to the Oracle Cloud for years,” said Thomas Kurian, president of product development, Oracle. “With this expansion we will be able to further support customer choice adding to capabilities already available through deployments of Oracle Cloud at Customer, as well as other Oracle Cloud data center regions in Asia Pacific.”
