Opposites Attract: 8 Cloud Deals Forged To Deliver Hybrid Solutions
Oracle And Equinix
Equinix is the world's largest data center operator with an unrivaled roster of multinational co-location customers. Oracle is showing success leveraging its massive customer base and technological aptitude to charge into the public cloud with a unique value proposition. Together, the two companies see an opportunity to capitalize on more enterprise business.
Last week they expanded Oracle's private, dedicated network link, FastConnect, to 16 more Equinix data centers across North America and Europe.
FastConnect already had been deployed at Equinix's facility in Washington, D.C. The latest investment in the hybrid enabling capability allows customers to directly connect to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure through that existing link from additional data centers by leveraging Equinix Cloud Exchange.
Direct connections to Oracle's cloud were previously available in some of those Equinix facilities only through a predecessor technology, Oracle FastConnect Classic.
