Oracle and Partners Make It Easier for Global Organizations to Move to the Cloud

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Oracle today announced the addition of new partners to Oracle Network Cloud Service: FastConnect, a program that enables enterprise cloud connectivity through the points of presence for global members of Oracle PartnerNetwork. The new and extended partner relationships support the strong demand for Oracle Cloud. These collaborations help global enterprise customers break down barriers to cloud adoption and take advantage of performance, cost and innovation benefits of the Oracle Cloud.

Equinix has extended its relationship with the Oracle FastConnect program to include Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. A similar relationship with Megaport was announced in April to enable Cloud through the FastConnect program. Other recent partners include Verizon, BT and NTT.

Oracle FastConnect addresses one of the most important issues that impacts migration to a cloud service: the unpredictable nature of the Internet. With FastConnect, customers can create a high-throughput and low-latency connection that delivers the benefits of a hybrid cloud setup by providing an easy, cost effective way to create dedicated and private connectivity to Oracle Cloud. In addition, customers can address common concerns with security and performance issues associated with cloud technologies. This is especially true for mission-critical enterprise workloads that frequently demand high levels of availability, security and performance.

Together, Oracle and its FastConnect partners aim to remove barriers to cloud adoption by providing additional options for connectivity to Oracle Cloud from trusted enterprise data centers. In-region accessibility helps to improve performance by reducing latency and providing strong quality of service, all while supporting data residency requirements. Connecting directly to the Oracle Cloud through Oracle FastConnect enables a fast, private connection to the industry's broadest and most integrated cloud platform, with a complete range of services across Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

"We continue to see tremendous growth across our cloud business," said Thomas Kurian, president of Product Development, Oracle. "These collaborations further help our customers achieve business transformation in the cloud and execute on their business strategies by taking advantage of the breadth and depth of our partners' global networks."
