Megaport, a global provider of “elastic” interconnection services and Silver level member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork, has announced its cloud connectivity collaboration with Oracle. Through this initiative, Megaport and Oracle would be able to provide an “easy, cost effective” way for enterprises to create dedicated and private connectivity to Oracle Cloud services that can scale rapidly with changing business needs.
Taking advantage of Megaport‘s global network and API integration with Oracle Network Cloud Service – FastConnect, customers would now be able to quickly establish connectivity between their on premise data center and Oracle cloud environments with higher bandwidth options and a more reliable and consistent networking experience when compared with internet-based connections.
Oracle customers can obtain access to the Megaport global network through the Megaport portal (megaport.al) in more than 20 major markets in Asia Pacific, North America and Europe with 150 Points-of-Presence (PoPs). From any of these locations Oracle customers can self-provision FastConnect via Megaport‘s Web based portal/ API to the supported Oracle regions. Initial integration will be available at Ashburn and Phoenix with additional locations to be added in the near future.
“Oracle is a major innovator of public cloud infrastructure, as evidenced by the announcement of their latest cloud offerings at Oracle OpenWorld 2016,” said Vincent English, CEO of Megaport. “Its loyal base of large enterprise customers, global reach, and focus on developing faster, better, and more cost effective services make it the perfect partner to enable with our elastic interconnection services. In the new era of cloud-enabled IT, enterprises require a cloud provider that can power a full breadth of integrated services and provide end-to-end support with applications (SaaS), platform (PaaS) and compute and storage infrastructure (IaaS). Oracle FastConnect can provide reliable and dedicated connectivity enabling faster deployment and migration of critical workloads in the cloud. We are happy to have forged a global collaboration with Oracle and the talented teams behind Oracle Cloud.”
