Global cloud and data center solutions provider Digital Realty has announced it will offer connectivity to the recently launched Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud.
The new Oracle cloud offering is targeted at Governments and enterprises to help them meet evolving data residency and privacy regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) while moving to the cloud.
The product differs from others in the market because it is physically separate from its existing ten cloud regions in the E.U.
Accessing via Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect, Digital Realty customers can benefit from secure and reliable connectivity to the Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud regions in Frankfurt and Madrid and can choose to use Digital Realty to interconnect their Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud-based applications and workloads to other cloud platforms.
Located entirely within the E.U., Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud provides customers access to OCI's public cloud services while giving them additional control over their data privacy and sovereignty requirements.
Designed to address the E.U.'s evolving regulatory landscape, Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud 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 Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud is facilitated by Digital Realty’s proprietary interconnection and orchestration solution called ServiceFabric, which extends access to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud from more than 130 locations globally. This helps ensure that customers can connect from anywhere around the globe.
In addition to OCI FastConnect connectivity to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud 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, to provide customers with low-latency, secure, and high-performance connectivity to OCI FastConnect.
