Oracle Teams Up with Verizon to Ease Enterprise Customers’ Move to the Cloud

Verizon has announced that Oracle is now offering customers secure connections to its cloud via Verizon's Secure Cloud Interconnect services. With Verizon Secure Cloud Interconnect for Oracle FastConnect, Oracle customers can now connect to Oracle Cloud data center sites located in the U.S. and Europe.

According to Verizon, the partnership allows enterprises to take advantage of the service's Software Defined Networking (SDN) capabilities to gain greater control over their cloud environments, including consumption-based bandwidth, pre-provisioned on-demand resources, controlled application performance and varying classes of service that can be provisioned via Verizon's Dynamic Network Manager.

Verizon says the Secure Cloud Interconnect for Oracle FastConnect supports Oracle's broader portfolio of Fast Connect services which allow customers to establish a secure high-speed private MPLS connection between their existing IT infrastructure and the cloud compute resources on the Oracle Cloud. The services are delivered by a set of offerings within the Oracle Network Cloud Service portfolio that are designed to give customers consistent network performance, as well as hybrid cloud deployment options.

Verizon Secure Cloud Interconnect for Oracle FastConnect also allows enterprises to store data in a variety of settings, including a traditional IT environment and a dedicated on or off premises cloud.

Including Oracle, Verizon's Secure Cloud Interconnect now offers access to nine cloud providers (Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, HPE Rapid Connect, IBM Cloud Softlayer, Microsoft ExpressRoute for Office 365TM, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, Microsoft Azure Government, Salesforce, SAP, and Verizon Cloud and Enterprise Cloud Federal Edition) at more than 20 global peering locations in North America, Latin America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
