"The arrival of the second Oracle Cloud Region in Chile is a significant milestone as it allows our customers to gain the benefits of OCI's services, while leveraging best practices for business continuity and disaster recovery," said Joaquin Ma-Shichoy, managing director at Oracle Chile.

"With the opening of the Oracle Cloud Valparaíso Region, we're strengthening our commitment to Chile's technological development by enabling organizations – including those in highly regulated industries and with in-country data residency requirements – to accelerate their journeys to the cloud."

This is the company’s 48th public cloud region and offers more than 100 OCI services. This week Oracle founder and CTO Larry Ellison said the company was currently building out around 100 cloud data centers globally.

Oracle’s first Chilean cloud region – located in Santiago – launched in December 2020.

2023 has seen Oracle launch Latin American regions in Colombia and Mexico. Outside of Chile, the company now has two regions in Brazil, two in Mexico, and one in Colombia.
