Oracle’s universal cloud credits for Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) metered services are now available on Tech Data’s StreamOne cloud marketplace. This would give channel partners in the Americas and Europe an easy way to provision, manage and deliver the solutions for cloud-based or hybrid customer deployments.
Oracle’s universal cloud credits are a flexible way of buying and consuming cloud services. Through one universal SKU, customers have unlimited access to all current and future Oracle Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings, spanning both Oracle Cloud and Oracle Cloud at Customer. Customers will have on-demand access to all PaaS and IaaS services with flexibility to upgrade, expand or move services across data centers based on their requirements.
“Oracle IaaS and PaaS are popular solutions and significant additions to StreamOne,” said Sergio Farache, senior vice president, Global Cloud Solutions at Tech Data. “The elasticity and utility that Oracle IaaS delivers are perfectly suited to the cloud. Our customers can now take advantage of IaaS at any time, without making a long-term commitment. Through StreamOne, Oracle resellers can offer IaaS and PaaS for provisioning and use, with simple management and billing capabilities.”
Tech Data’s StreamOne platform, developed by Tech Data to provide its channel customers with the capability to manage the entire end-user lifecycle for consumption- and subscription-based cloud services, includes tools and resources that enable resellers to learn about, buy and manage services. Tech Data’s Cloud Solutions team provides specialist support to resellers, making it easier for them to engage on and benefit from vendor and service provider programs, and to transition their business models.

The addition of Oracle IaaS and PaaS would further enhance the value of StreamOne for channel partners. With the wide range of enterprise-class solutions now available on StreamOne, including those from AWS, IBM, Microsoft, Veeam and Veritas, resellers can cater to their customers’ various cloud services requirements via the platform.
“Tech Data has an excellent reputation for developing and driving growth for its partners,” said Al Patel, senior director, VAD Channel Sales, Oracle EMEA. “In addition to driving accelerated cloud revenue and adoption, we can also support existing partners with their on-premise and on-premise-to-cloud needs, leveraging the strengths of Tech Data. Oracle is investing heavily in net-new cloud business with value-added distributors in EMEA, and Tech Data is an important part of this initiative.”
