Oracle ORCL has demonstrated its commitment to delivering innovative cloud infrastructure services across Mexico, by becoming the first hyperscaler to open two cloud regions in the country. This expansion is part of ORCL's distributed cloud strategy.
TELMEX-Triara is the host partner for the new Oracle Cloud Monterrey Region. Through this partnership, TELMEX-Triara becomes one of the first telecommunications operators in Mexico to offer Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (“OCI”) services to organizations.
The new region will offer Oracle Cloud's full capabilities, including more than 100 OCI services and cloud applications.
