Microsoft stated it was catering to Canadians’ data sovereignty “concerns” when it launched its first Azure cloud data centers in Canada earlier this year; Amazon cited similar concerns in Germany when it declared a cloud data center in Frankfurt in 2014.
Oracle, a latest software giant has around 20 data centers worldwide. The company is not interested in sharing any further information about its data center infrastructure, but when it declared the opening of a cloud facility in Japan earlier this year, it confirms it was its 19th worldwide.
