Digital Realty to offer connectivity to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud

Wed 20 Sep 2023

Digital Realty has announced it will offer connectivity to the recently-launched Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud via Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect.

Connectivity will be provided to the Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud regions in Frankfurt and Madrid, with options to use Digital Realty to interconnect their Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud-based applications and workloads to other cloud platforms.

Located entirely within the European Union, the cloud platform provides customers with access to OCI’s public cloud services, while giving them additional control over their data privacy and sovereignty requirements.

“Reliable connectivity is necessary for critical, high bandwidth workloads like analytics, artificial intelligence, data warehousing, and streaming. Partners like Digital Realty play a key role in supporting the hybrid multicloud solutions that users expect,” said Yogesh Kaushik, Vice President of Product Management for Networking Services at Oracle.

Designed to address the EU’s evolving regulatory landscape, Oracle’s sovereign cloud solution offers customers the services and capabilities of OCI’s public cloud regions with the same prices, support, and service level agreements (SLAs) to run all workloads.

The OCI FastConnect interconnection to the sovereign cloud is facilitated by Digital Realty’s proprietary interconnection and orchestration solution ServiceFabric, which also extends access to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud from more than 130 locations globally.

“As more organisations harness the power of the cloud, prioritising data protection, reliability, latency and compliance become mission critical. We believe that embracing the cloud should not come at the cost of compromising data privacy or facing regulatory hurdles,” said Harm Joosse, Global Head of Strategy & Business Segments, Service Providers at Digital Realty.

In addition to OCI FastConnect connectivity in Madrid, Digital Realty currently hosts nine other OCI FastConnect points-of-presence (PoPs) globally, including Amsterdam, Chicago, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, London, Madrid, Marseille, and Sao Paulo.
