Oracle has announced a new cloud region in Brazil.

The company’s new Vinhedo Cloud region, in the state of São Paulo, is the second cloud region the company offers in Brazil, joining a separate São Paulo region launched last year.

Telco TIM Brasil and satellite TV operator SKY are customers of the new region.

"We're thrilled to open Oracle's Vinhedo Cloud region as our second region in Brazil. Part of our strategy has been to build a true disaster recovery solution with two regions to help our customers bring their most critical workloads to Oracle Cloud," said Scott Twaddle, vice president, product, industries, and partnerships, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

"With the Vinhedo Cloud region, customers across South and Latin America are able to move to the cloud faster and build resilient workloads that meet data sovereignty requirements and keep their data or metadata within borders."

This is Oracle’s 30th Cloud region globally, with the company planning to have 38 by the end of the year. Its only other region in Latin America opened in Chile late last year.

Second regions are planned in UAE and Saudi Arabia, as well as additional European regions in Italy, Sweden, and France. New regions in Singapore, South Africa, and Israel are also in development.
