Oracle Steps Deeper into Mexico’s Cloud Market; Unveils Data Center in Queretaro

Oracle has built a data center in the Mexican city of Queretaro, in an apparent bid to grab a larger slice of the country’s market for cloud computing.

This is the company’s fourth cloud region in Latin America, with the remaining located in Brazil and Chile.

Oracle already has a handful of customers in Mexico for its cloud services, but these clients have no option but to store their workloads in the company’s data centers in and around Texas.

The Queretaro center offers faster access to Mexican clients, Oracle stated in a press release, adding that the new facility will speed up digital transformation activities across the country.

The Austin-based technology company said it will build six more data centers by the end of this year, two of which will be based in Colombia and Chile.

Oracle’s cloud region not only offers cloud computing services but also a range of emerging technology solutions as well as software-as-a-service (SaaS).

The technology industry accounts for 4.3% of Queretaro’s GDP, according to state governor Mauricio Kuri Gonzalez.

The data center will also strengthen the government services, stated the governor, adding that many public agencies are counted among Oracle’s clients.
