Big Red will be opening three new data centres in London as part of plans to expand its Oracle cloud services worldwide.

The three new data centres in London form just one new region of three planned by Big Red, with regions in the US and Turkey also set to come online by mid-2017.

Factoring in the three new regions, Oracle has doubled the regional presence of its cloud platform in the last 24 months, with 29 Regions available globally.

“Oracle is committed to building the most differentiated Cloud Platform that delivers on the requirements of a wide array of customer workloads,” said Deepak Patil, vice president of development, Oracle Cloud Platform.

“This regional expansion underscores our commitment to making the engineering and Oracle Cloud expands with three london data centrescapital investments required to continue to be a global large scale cloud platform leader.”

All three new Oracle cloud regions will be made up of three high bandwidth low latency sites – or Availability Domains (ADs). Although a specific location for the London data centres has not been yet disclosed, the ADs will be located several miles from each-other and operate in a completely fault-independent manner. This set-up looks to ensure a high level of failure protection and availability for customers.

“We’ve been consistently impressed with the speed, availability and price of Oracle’s Bare Metal Cloud. This has, in turn, helped us grow our business across the world,” said Gareth Williams, CEO, YellowDog.

“The new EMEA Regions will enable us to offer an improved service to our high-end customers in Europe who look to YellowDog to deliver not only super-fast, super-secure and high availability cloud rendering, but also super-low latency.”

There are plans for even further expansion, with Oracle looking to take Regions online in APAC, North America, and the Middle East through mid-2018.
