Megaport opens up Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in London

29 Jun 2018

Megaport recently announced the availability of dedicated and private access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (FastConnect) in London.

The number of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure locations enabled by Megaport is now four metros across North America and Europe, with a total of 13 FastConnect locations around the world.

The launch of the service in London opens up a number of options for customers wanting to connect to Oracle European cloud infrastructure from anywhere on Megaport’s global SDN.

According to the company, its routing capabilities enable users to connect distributed workloads between regions quickly and move data between multi-region environments (for example London and Frankfurt) without having to hairpin traffic back through physical infrastructure, thus simplifying connectivity and enabling multicloud capabilities.

This allows customers to utilise connections that bypass the public internet and improve network performance and predictability.

Ultimately, this means for Oracle customers improved performance, enhanced control, flexibility, and scalability that can provide access to critical business data and functions.

“Businesses are increasingly in need of direct connectivity to their cloud applications to support the increasing volume of mission-critical data produced by next-generation technologies. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect is a powerful product which, when combined with Megaport’s Software Defined Network, allows customers around the world to build optimised cloud strategies,” says Megaport CEO Vincent English.

“Our tight alignment with Oracle enables us to bring this service to market rapidly and provides greater access to Oracle’s integrated services and support for the deployment of critical workloads in this cloud-first era.”

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect caters for enterprise connectivity to Oracle Cloud from trusted data centres throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia to offer SaaS application suites for ERP, HCM, and CX, in addition to PaaS and IaaS.
