Digital Realty, the leading provider of cloud- and carrier-neutral data center, colocation, and interconnection solutions, has announced that it will provide connectivity to the newly-launched Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect. This offering will enable customers to have secure and reliable connectivity to the Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud regions in Frankfurt and Madrid, and they will have the option to interconnect their Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud-based applications and workloads with other cloud platforms using Digital Realty.

Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud, which is located entirely within the European Union (EU), gives customers access to OCI’s public cloud services while offering enhanced control over their data privacy and sovereignty requirements. The offering is designed to meet the evolving regulatory landscape of the EU and provides customers with the same support, service levels, and service level agreements (SLAs) to run all workloads.

Digital Realty’s proprietary interconnection and orchestration solution, ServiceFabric, facilitates the OCI FastConnect interconnection to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud. This solution also expands access to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud from over 130 locations worldwide, allowing customers to connect from anywhere across the globe.

Yogesh Kaushik, Vice President of Product Management, Networking Services at Oracle, highlighted the importance of reliable connectivity for critical workloads and expressed the key role that Digital Realty plays in supporting hybrid multicloud solutions. Harm Joosse, Global Head of Strategy & Business Segments, Service Providers at Digital Realty, emphasized the company’s commitment to data protection, reliability, latency, and compliance, as well as its collaboration with Oracle to drive demand for the Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud.

In addition to connectivity to Oracle EU Sovereign Cloud in Madrid, Digital Realty currently hosts nine other OCI FastConnect points-of-presence (PoPs) globally, providing customers with secure and high-performance connectivity to OCI FastConnect.
