Oracle - Red Bull

Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), one of the biggest worldwide suppliers of cloud- and carrier-neutral data center, colocation, and interconnection solutions, made the announcement that it will provide connectivity to the newly released Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud by means of the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect service.

The colocation provider’s customers may take advantage of “secure and reliable” connectivity to the Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud regions in Frankfurt and Madrid, while they have the option of using Digital Realty to link their Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud-based applications and workloads to other cloud platforms.

Oracle’s EU Sovereign Cloud is wholly located inside the borders of the European Union (EU), and it gives clients access to OCI’s public cloud services while also providing them with extra control over the data privacy and sovereignty needs specific to their businesses. Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud was developed to meet the changing legislative environment of the EU. It would provide users with the same services and capabilities that are available in OCI’s public cloud regions, as well as the same rates, support, and service level agreements (SLAs), allowing users to run all types of workloads.

ServiceFabric, which is a proprietary interconnection and orchestration solution developed by Digital Realty, is responsible for facilitating the OCI FastConnect connections to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud. This solution offers access to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud from more than 130 locations across the world. Clients will be able to connect to the service from any location in the world as a result of this move.

“Critical, high-bandwidth tasks like analytics, artificial intelligence, data warehousing, and streaming all need reliable connectivity to function properly. Customers have the ability to achieve high service levels and consistently high throughput in their network connection to Oracle Cloud when using OCI FastConnect,” said Oracle’s Vice President of Product Management for Networking Services, Yogesh Kaushik. He added that partners such as Digital Realty play an important role in the company’s ability to deliver hybrid multicloud solutions that its customers require.

“With Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud, companies are able to maximize the benefits of digital transformation while maintaining the highest possible levels of data security and conforming to all applicable sovereignty regulations,” said Harm Joosse, Global Head of Strategy and Business Segments for Service Providers at Digital Realty. “We’re delighted to work with Oracle to drive demand for its new Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud and to enable our joint customers to seamlessly and securely interconnect to OCI FastConnect and other cloud platforms.”

Digital Realty currently hosts nine other OCI FastConnect points-of-presence (PoPs) globally, including Amsterdam, Chicago, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, London, Madrid, Marseille, and Sao Paulo, in order to provide customers with low-latency, secure, and high-performance connectivity to OCI FastConnect. This connectivity is provided in addition to OCI FastConnect connectivity to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud in Madrid.
