Equinix lengthens global reach of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure will use FastConnect in Equinix IBX data centres

Equinix has announced that it has extended the global reach of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to help enterprises across five continents connect to Oracle Cloud on Platform Equinix.

As a part of the expanded collaboration, Oracle customers using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in the Phoenix data centre region can also now directly connect to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect from Equinix International Business Exchange data centres in Los Angeles via ECX Fabric.

The need to deploy private, hybrid cloud architecture by connecting to cloud service providers, is becoming increasingly important for global enterprises as digital transformation fuels the need for on-demand access to cloud-based services.

“As a company with a 100-year track record as an innovator in industrial silica products and solutions, our customers have high expectations of us,” said Mohammed Shareef, Director, IT Applications and Enterprise Architecture, U.S. Silica.

“When we made the critical decision to upgrade our ERP and migrate it to the cloud, we knew we needed the right partners in place to succeed.

“With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect through ECX Fabric, we were able to bring applications and services closer to our users, implement a robust DR solution, increase agility, and enhance security and reliability.”

Currently, Oracle FastConnect is deployed in six Equinix IBX data centres, including Amsterdam, Chicago, Frankfurt, London, Sydney and Washington, D.C./Northern Virginia.

“As companies around the world are prioritising digital transformation as a way to gain a competitive advantage, we’re seeing increased customer demand to migrate Oracle workloads to Oracle Cloud,” said Robert Blackburn, Global Managing Director, Oracle Strategic Alliance, Equinix.

“The reality is that companies that are adopting digital transformation are thriving, and those that are not are being left behind.

“With this direct access, our mutual customers can create a high-speed, low-latency connection that allows them to fully realise the benefits of their Oracle deployment.

“We are excited to deepen our collaboration with Oracle and offer this service in these new metros across the globe.”
