Oracle Opens Cloud Region in Serbia

Oracle has opened the Oracle Cloud Jovanovac Region located in Kragujevac, Serbia.

As Oracle’s first cloud region in Southeast Europe, the new Oracle Cloud Jovanovac Region supports the increasing cloud computing demands of private and public sector organizations in Serbia, and opens up business innovation across the region.

It will enable Serbian businesses to take advantage of the performance and security of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and support the growth of critical regional industries including healthcare, retail, and financial services.


The opening of the Oracle Cloud Jovanovac Region was attended by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia, Ana Brnabić; the Minister of Information and Telecommunications, Mihailo Jovanović; the Ambassador of the United States of America, Christopher R. Hill; the Acting Director of the Office for IT and eGovernment, Milan Latinović; and the Director of Data Cloud Technology, Danilo Savić. The event was hosted by Kenneth Johansen, senior vice president, Cloud Technology, Northern and Eastern Europe, Oracle.

“Local organizations and public institutions are taking firm steps to establish Serbia as a country focused on technology-driven innovation,” said Johansen. “With the opening of the Oracle Cloud Jovanovac Region, we’re helping our customers take advantage of the best cloud technologies while ensuring high security standards, availability, and latency.”

Vladimir Lučić, CEO at Telekom Srbija, a long-standing Oracle customer in the region, said: “As the largest telecom operator in the region, we support the first investment in a cloud data center from a global cloud service provider. With the use of OCI, Telekom Srbija continues the digital transformation and modernization of its operations. This brings us a competitive advantage and enables the development of new services in both the retail and enterprise market segments.”

The Oracle Cloud Jovanovac Region is part of OCI’s distributed cloud strategy. OCI can address customer requirements by delivering required cloud services to needed locations with flexible performance, security, compliance, and operational models. Oracle provides a broad and consistent set of 100+ cloud services across 42 commercial and government cloud regions in 23 countries, as well as multiple additional dedicated regions and US national security regions, to serve its growing global customer base.

This cloud region opening underscores the Serbian government’s prioritization of digitalization and investment in state-of-the-art data center infrastructure, human resources, and technical capabilities. This positions Serbia as a regional leader in technology transformation and a good partner for foreign IT investments.
