The city will be the first hub in Europe through which Microsoft and Oracle clouds will interconnect

UK companies using Oracle and Microsoft Azure clouds are about to benefit from a huge boost in performance after the two companies announced they are bringing their multi-cloud partnership to the capital.

The companies said that London customers will be able to connect their Azure and Oracle infrastructure as they announced further support for the multi-cloud service across the world.

The partnership, unveiled in June this year was struck in response to high demand from joint customers and simplifies the management of IT environments and applications that span both clouds. It was initially made available to certain Azure regions in the US and it is the first time joint customers in Europe can take advantage of the service.

The companies said London’s status as one of the most active Oracle Cloud regions was a key factor in their decision to open up the service in the capital, which will boost customers in UK and Europe by providing improved data and application speeds between the two clouds.

“A wide range of customers their deploy solutions that span mission-critical systems of record, cloud native deployments of innovative new solutions, and everything in between,” the companies wrote in a press release announcing the expansion.

“Joint customers can create their ideal combination of services from each cloud, matching each part of their workload inventory to the optimal cloud for each, without added complexity or settling for an inferior environment for parts of what they run.”
