Digital Realty Offers Access to Oracle Cloud with FastConnect

Digital Realty, a provider of cloud- and carrier-neutral data center, colocation, and interconnection solutions, and member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), announced it will offer connectivity to an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect point-of-presence (PoP) within the newly launched Oracle Cloud Chicago Region.

The new connectivity deployment located at Digital Realty's  data center will provide customers with a low-latency route into the Oracle Cloud Chicago Region, with multi-cloud access from its global facilities through PlatformDIGITAL, Digital Realty's global data center platform, ServiceFabric, its recently launched orchestration platform, and its various Connected Campus solutions.

With the addition of the Oracle Cloud Chicago Region, Digital Realty now hosts nine OCI FastConnect PoPs across four continents, including Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, London, Madrid, Marseille, and Sao Paulo.

"Access to OCI FastConnect at our Chicago facility enables Digital Realty customers to achieve low-latency connectivity to the new Oracle Cloud Chicago Region," said Chris Sharp, CTO at Digital Realty. "Our global customers can quickly establish access to the Oracle Cloud Region via ServiceFabric, regardless of where they are located, bringing enhanced connectivity to customers and partners across the globe."

By colocating IT infrastructure at Digital Realty's Chicago data center in a hybrid cloud architecture, customers can benefit from low-latency access to the Oracle Cloud Chicago Region locally. Mission-critical workloads with a requirement to reside near or adjacent to the cloud benefit from colocation on our global platform.

Oracle Cloud is a next-generation cloud that delivers powerful compute and networking performance, and a comprehensive portfolio of infrastructure and platform cloud services.
