Oracle and Microsoft have extended their cloud partnership with a new cloud interconnect location in Amsterdam. The new Amsterdam interconnect will enable businesses that rely on software from both companies to share data across applications running in Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud.
The expansion of the Oracle-Microsoft cloud partnership was announced in a blog post by Vinay Kumar, vice president, product management, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
The facility in Amsterdam—a strategic data center hub for Europe—joins interconnected regions already up and running in Toronto; Ashburn, Virginia; and London, and is part of a broader Oracle-Microsoft cloud interoperability partnership announced last year.
The goal of the overall collaboration is to make it faster and easier for enterprises to move their on-premise workloads to the cloud that best suits the specific needs of an application.
Oracle and Microsoft plan to interconnect additional cloud regions on the U.S. West Coast, Asia, and regions dedicated to U.S. public sector customers.
