MUMBAI/NEW DELHI: Oracle has launched its second data centre in Hyderabad, quickly expanding in the country after its first such centre was unveiled in Mumbai last year.

This is part of Oracle’s global plans to operate 36 second-generation Cloud regions by the end of this year, in countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan.

The centre is expected to meet increased demand for secure cloud services from existing and new clients, Shailender Kumar, 

regional managing director, Oracle India told ET.

The two data centres are aimed at providing its more than 15,000 clients with business continuity and disaster recovery options.

Kumar said mission critical services, including the banking sector, worked with it to shift most their services to a work-from-home model and to deliver loan relaxations provided by the finance ministry.

"BFSI (banking, financial services, insurance) in the last three months has been one of the mission critical services (that have seen a lot of interest),” he said.
