FastConnect via Digital Realty Service Exchange helps ensure high performance and optimal reliability for critical enterprise applications

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of data center, colocation and interconnection solutions and a Silver level member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), announced today it will offer dedicated and private access to Oracle Cloud through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect in 14 major metropolitan areas.  These connections help ensure high performance and optimal reliability of critical enterprise applications within Oracle's cloud, which occupies more than 500,000 square feet across 16 Digital Realty locations. 

Access to OCI is being made available through Digital Realty's Service Exchange in Ashburn, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle and Silicon Valley.  As a result, a total of 59 Digital Realty data centers support private connections to Oracle's Infrastructure as a Service.  

Oracle FastConnect enables customers to set up a hybrid cloud by providing an easy and cost-effective way to create fast, low-latency, private and dedicated connectivity to Oracle Cloud.  Digital Realty's Service Exchange gives enterprises private, secure, high-throughput, and low-latency access over a single interface to OCI and other cloud providers, overcoming some of the limitations of the public Internet.  It allows users to manage physical and virtual connections through a single portal and gives them the visibility and reporting capabilities they need to address their connectivity requirements more rapidly and efficiently.  

"Customers require seamless connectivity from their data centers and networks to Oracle Cloud for their most demanding workloads and applications," said Don Johnson, Senior Vice President Product Development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.  "With Oracle's FastConnect service via Digital Realty, customers can provision the dedicated and private connections they need today and easily scale with their growing business demands." 

"Our direct connections to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure build upon our commitment to ensure that our customers have interconnected access to the critical IT resources they need to drive business success," said Digital Realty Chief Technology Officer Chris Sharp.  "The rapid growth of Oracle Cloud is a testament to its strength in the marketplace, and we are extremely pleased to be working closely with Oracle to accelerate its momentum."
