EXPANDING ITS CLOUD PARTNERSHIPS
Digital Realty has announced a new partnership with Oracle which will enable customers located in Interxion’s Paris data center campus to gain direct access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) through the new Oracle Cloud Paris region.
Interxion is a Digital Realty company which provides cloud, data center, colocation, and interconnection solutions in EMEA. The opening of Oracle’s second cloud region with Interxion in France is an extension of its existing partnership, following the launch of its first OCI region in Marseille last year.
“We are very excited to welcome Oracle’s second cloud region in France to Interxion. This partnership enriches our value offering for our customer communities by removing the barriers associated with the adoption of hybrid and multi-cloud environments in the Paris market,” said Fabrice Coquio, SVP, Digital Realty & Managing Director, Interxion France.
“It is also satisfying to see that our commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our data centers was a key factor in Oracle’s decision to select Interxion again. We are proud to provide this level of service while supporting companies in their digital and environmental transformations.”
The new Oracle second cloud region in Paris, France, marks the company’s 38th cloud region globally. This has been followed by the opening of Oracle’s 39th cloud region few weeks ago in Mexico, precisely located in the state of Querétaro.
“After the opening of our first cloud region in Marseille, we have selected Interxion again to help deploy our critical infrastructure and offer Oracle Cloud Infrastructure via our newest cloud region in Paris. This relationship is based on a common objective to support the digital transformation of companies by limiting their environmental impact,” said Christophe Negrier, SVP EMEA South, Cloud Business and Managing Director, Oracle France.
“Interxion France’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy has thus proved to be an important criterion of choice for us, particularly in view of their contribution to carbon neutrality for scopes one and two. In addition, Interxion’s use of renewable energy corresponds to Oracle’s commitment to sustainability and its pledge to power all Oracle Cloud regions worldwide with 100 percent renewable energy by 2025, which is already the case in all of our data centers in Europe.”
More recently, Oracle and Claro also announced a partnership to jointly offer Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) services in Colombia, further expanding its global cloud services footprint.
