Oracle announced the opening of its Oracle Cloud Singapore Region. The new Singapore region will support growing demand for enterprise cloud services in South East Asia and expands Oracle's reach to 33 cloud regions globally; fueling the region's economic recovery and contributing to its digital economy. Cloud infrastructure underpins Singapore's drive for innovation and digital initiatives. To accelerate this, Oracle is offering 100 startups USD 30,000 each in Oracle Cloud credits over the next two years.

Customers will also have access to the full suite of Oracle Cloud Applications, as well as Oracle Autonomous Database, giving them the opportunity and choice to create the architecture that best suits their business needs.
