Create an Instance in Another Region

If you want to create an Oracle Content Management instance in a region other than your primary region, there are some preliminary steps you need to perform before you create the instance.


If you're creating an instance in your primary region, you can skip this step and go straight to creating your instance.

Oracle Infrastructure and Platform Cloud Services (Oracle IaaS/PaaS) are enabled in different data centers. These data centers are grouped into data regions based on their geographic locations. When you purchase these services or sign up for a free promotion, you typically choose the data region closest to your location to access them. This becomes your primary data region. However, if required, you can extend your subscription to other geographical regions (within the same cloud account) and use the services there. For example, if you selected North America as your primary data region during your purchase, you can extend your subscription to the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) data region. By doing so, you’ll enable your users to use services available in the EMEA data centers.

To create an instance in another region, perform these preliminary steps:

  1. Extend your subscription to another region.
  2. Federate Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) from the new region with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).

If you don't want to create a private instance, you can skip to create your instance. When you create your instance, make sure to sign in to OCI Console with the new federated provider and select the appropriate region during instance creation.
