Oracle has announced the availability of the first of two planned second-generation Cloud Regions in the UAE. The addition of the Dubai Cloud Region marks the availability of 26 Oracle Cloud Regions worldwide.
The opening is part of Oracle’s aggressive plan to have 36 Cloud Regions by July 2021. Located in Dubai, the new Cloud Region will offer all Oracle cloud services, including Oracle Autonomous Database and Oracle Cloud Applications.
The contribution of the digital economy to the UAE’s GDP stood at 4.3 per cent in 2019 and the target is to double this by enhancing the country’s digital readiness.
Oracle’s second-generation Cloud Region in Dubai will help accelerate the digital transformation initiatives of organizations across the UAE’s government entities, large enterprises and SMEs, thus directly supporting the country’s economic vision.
UAE organizations that have chosen Oracle Cloud include DP World, a leader in global supply chain solutions; and DAMAC, a premier luxury property developer.
