Montreal, Canada

Oracle has announced its new Gen 2 Cloud region in Montreal, Canada, following the launch of its Toronto Cloud region last year.

The company revealed that the opening is part of Oracle’s global plans to operate 36 Generation 2 Cloud regions by the end of 2020.

Canadian customers and partners will have access to all Oracle Cloud services, including Oracle Autonomous Database and Oracle Autonomous Linux, as well as Oracle Cloud Applications, according to the company.

“Oracle’s Canadian customers and partners are at the forefront of cloud innovation,” said Don Johnson, executive vice president, product development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

“Our investment in the region reflects unparalleled demand for our Gen 2 Cloud, built to run customers’ most important business applications securely.

“The new Montreal Region coupled with the Toronto Region enables Oracle to provide multi-region deployments in the country to address Canadian organisations’ disaster recovery and compliance requirements.”
