Global digital transformation company Atos, with over 110,000 employees in 73 countries and annual revenue of over € 11 billion, has strengthened its strategic partnership with Google Cloud with two regional extensions of existing Google Cloud data centers in Frankfurt (Germany) and Ashburn VA (United States), to support Oracle database customers.

These two regional extensions in Germany and the US will be equipped with Atos’ “high-performance” BullSequana S servers, enabling Oracle database customers to run their workloads “efficiently and effectively” and “benefit” from Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Atos brings its expertise in end-to-end cloud orchestration and management, and infrastructure services and support, to offer Oracle database customers a fully managed and secured cloud service that would seamlessly be integrated with Google Cloud Platform.

The BullSequana S from Atos (PDF) is a “high-performance, modular and highly scalable” server. Atos claims its server to be easily configurable to fit specific customer needs and therefore optimize costs for Oracle customers. These regional data centers are certified by Google Cloud to provide “direct, secured and high-performance” network connectivity, for faster and optimized access to Google Cloud resources.

“I’m delighted to expand our global partnership with Google Cloud, to now bring Oracle database customers the benefits of Google Cloud Platform so that they may harness the power of AI and ML to solve business challenges and innovate” said Thierry Breton, Chairman and CEO of Atos. “This announcement reinforces all the fruitful work we have done together over the last year, which has seen us bring our customers new end-to-end offers (encompassing AI, ML, Hybrid Cloud and Digital Workplace), and innovative services such as our joint customer AI Labs in Europe and in the US, to enable them to transform their business.”

Oracle Database Workloads

Atos and Google Cloud will provide customers with a single, unified process for identity management, access management, governance and administration across all environments, from GCP-based applications to database instances. This new offering will be available in the second half of 2019 directly from the GCP console via the Google Marketplace.

“Running Oracle database workloads, while also taking advantage of all the features of the Google Cloud Platform is a priority for many customers, so we are delighted to partner with Atos to help them do so,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud. “This solution from Atos means Oracle database customers can take advantage of Google Cloud’s performant infrastructure and scale, as well as our strengths in areas like AI and ML, backed by Atos’ expertise in business transformation and migration.”

Atos was recently recognized as Google Cloud’s ‘Global Breakthrough Partner of the Year’ at Google Cloud Next 19 in San Francisco.
