Oracle to Invest More Than $8 Billion in Cloud Computing and AI in Japan

Planned investment will grow Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's footprint in Japan

Expanded local support and operations team will help customers and partners address digital sovereignty requirements

AUSTIN, Texas and TOKYO, April 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Oracle Corporation Japan today announced that it plans to invest more than $8 billion over the next 10 years to meet the growing demand for cloud computing and AI infrastructure in Japan. The investment will grow Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's (OCI) footprint across Japan. In addition, to help customers and partners address the digital sovereignty requirements in Japan, Oracle will significantly expand its operations and support engineering teams with Japan-based personnel.

"We are dedicated to meeting our customers and partners where they are in their cloud journey," said Toshimitsu Misawa, member of the board, corporate executive officer and president, Oracle Corporation Japan. "By growing our cloud footprint and providing a team to support sovereign operations in Japan, we are giving our customers and partners the opportunity to innovate with AI and other cloud services while supporting their regulatory and sovereignty requirements."

Oracle plans to increase local customer support of its public cloud regions in Tokyo and Osaka and its local operations teams for Oracle Alloy and OCI Dedicated Region. This will enable governments and businesses across Japan to continue to move their mission-critical workloads to the Oracle Cloud and embrace sovereign AI solutions. Oracle sovereign cloud and AI services can be delivered securely within a country's borders or an organization's premises with a range of operational controls. Oracle is the only hyperscaler capable of delivering AI and a full suite of 100+ cloud services locally, anywhere.
