Global interconnection and data center company Equinix and software vendor Oracle have announced an agreement to provide dedicated, direct access to Oracle Public Platform and Infrastructure Services, via the Equinix Cloud Exchange in six markets worldwide. Oracle Cloud will be available on the Equinix Cloud Exchange in Amsterdam, Chicago, London, Singapore, Sydney and Washington, D.C.
Oracle would bring strategic value to the Equinix Cloud Exchange and its enterprise customers, particularly as the company continues to mirror its enterprise product suite in the cloud. Enterprises will now be able to “safely, securely and seamlessly” connect their existing Oracle applications, databases, compute and storage to Oracle’s new Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-as-Service (PaaS) public clouds.
The Oracle Cloud enables customers and partners to build new applications, extend Oracle Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, and migrate existing on-premises applications to the cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform offers customers and partners the same PaaS foundation upon which Oracle runs its own SaaS applications.
Cloud is the fastest growing part of Oracle’s business, and Oracle Cloud would continue to show strong adoption, supporting 62 million users and 23 billion transactions each day. Oracle Cloud runs on 30,000 devices and 400 petabytes of storage in 19 data centers around the world.
The Equinix Cloud Exchange is an advanced interconnection solution that would enable seamless, on-demand and direct access to multiple clouds, across multiple networks around the globe. The Equinix Cloud Exchange is currently available in 21 markets globally – Amsterdam, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, New York, Osaka, Paris, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto, Washington D.C., and Zurich.
