In February 2017, Oracle announced the expansion of its cloud coverage in Australia, with Oracle Cloud Platform services being made available locally. This is part of Oracle's investment expansion aimed at taking on global cloud leaders AWS and Azure at their own game of regional presence. Oracle has also been offering its suite of software-as-a-service in Australia, allowing it to become the only service provider that offers (its own branded) three layers of cloud services (e.g., IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS) in Australia.


  • Cloud data centers are capex-intensive investments, and global service providers have been very selective in the countries they are willing to place their bets on.
  • Australia has been very successful in attracting early cloud data center investments, with AWS, SoftLayer, Azure, CenturyLink, Dimension Data, and Rackspace all having been established there for a few years now. These providers also have multiple data centers in Australia.
  • In late 2016, Google committed to opening a data center in Australia over the next 12 months.
