Global high bandwidth connectivity solutions provider Colt has increased its capabilities to provide connection services to the Oracle Cloud Milan Region through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect.
Colt’s 100Gbps capable global fiber network, the Colt IQ Network, also spans Italy and connects over 3,100 linked corporate buildings and 55 connected data centers. The Colt network is connected to Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs) in Milan, Turin, Rome, and Genova. It now allows Oracle Cloud clients in this area to immediately benefit from this cloud-optimized intelligent network.
Colt’s network service offering, when combined with OCI FastConnect, would provide a high-performance, end-to-end connection experience for organizations in Italy’s industrial and financial sectors to connect to Oracle Cloud. Furthermore, compared to public Internet-based connections, this solution can support the creation of a more secure, reliable, and low-latency networking experience.
Users can self-provision secure, high-bandwidth connectivity to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regions in minutes, and flexibly scale bandwidth up or down in near-real-time with Colt On Demand for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Colt On Demand for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is managed through an online customer interface and purchased on a flexible, pay-as-you-go basis.
“This past year has highlighted not only the importance of agile, on-demand, high bandwidth network infrastructure, but also the wider technological ecosystem that had to rapidly come together as the world changed,” said Jaya Deshmukh, Executive Vice President (EVP) of Strategy and Transformation at Colt. “Our growing relationship with Oracle is one we’re extremely proud of, as it’s facilitated numerous cloud transformations which have allowed enterprises to continue to evolve in a time of great uncertainty. By adding a further Oracle point of presence in Italy, Oracle and Colt will continue to support the growing needs of enterprises in these critical regions.”
Customers may connect to Oracle Cloud regions and OCI services through OCI’s broad network of more than 70 FastConnect global and regional partners, giving good alternatives wherever throughout the globe.
