Oracle talks up new SA data centres
ITWeb | January 15, 2020
Oracle’s new data centres, due to launch in SA later this year, promise to bring unmatched performance, high security and new experiences to local organisations. This was the word from Andrew Sutherland, SVP business development, technology licence and systems at Oracle EMEA and APAC. Speaking this week during a media roundtable discussion at Oracle OpenWorld 2020, at the Dubai Trade Centre Arena, where hundreds of delegates gathered, Sutherland discussed Oracle’s plans to establish two data centres in SA before the end of the year. In September, the US-based enterprise software giant announced plans to build 20 new cloud regions by the end of 2020, for a total of 36 Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regions. These are set to be established in SA, US, Canada, Brazil, UK, European Union (Amsterdam), Japan, Australia, India, South Korea, Singapore, Israel, Chile, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.
