Oracle Corp. has expanded its data center footprint worldwide with four new facilities in Canada and Germany.
The data centers bring Oracle’s cloud infrastructure to a total of 17 data centers worldwide intended to deliver applications, social platforms and infrastructure services, Oracle said Tuesday.
Oracle intends for the data centers to help customers meet data storage and regulatory requirements.
“Oracle also delivers on the requirements of enterprise IT, including important corporate and regulatory requirements around data privacy and security,” said Mark Hurd, Oracle president.
“We are excited to announce this expansion as further commitment to our global customer base and their data residency requirements,” he added.
Oracle’s data centers are designed to provide human capital management, customer support and resource management services, according to the company.
The new data centers are scheduled to begin operations in the second quarter of 2014.
