Megaport (USA), the US subsidiary of Megaport, has announced it is collaborating with Oracle to provide an easy, cost-effective way for enterprises to create dedicated and private connectivity to Oracle Cloud services that can scale rapidly with changing business needs.

Enterprise customers continually look for more choices when it comes to designing networks that can flexibly and quickly address ever-changing workload requirements. Taking advantage of Megaport’s global network and API integration with Oracle Network Cloud Service (FastConnect), customers can quickly establish connectivity between their on-premise data center and Oracle cloud environments with higher bandwidth options and a more reliable and consistent networking experience compared with internet-based connections.

Oracle customers can obtain access to the Megaport global network through the Megaport portal in more than 20 major markets in Asia Pacific, North America and Europe with 150 points of presence. From any of these locations Oracle customers can self-provision FastConnect via Megaport’s Web based portal/ API to the supported Oracle regions.

Initial integration will be available at Ashburn and Phoenix, with additional locations to be added in the near future.

“Cloud is the fastest growing part of Oracle’s business,” said Thomas Kurian, president of product development at Oracle. “Customers require seamless connectivity from their data centers and networks to Oracle Cloud for their most demanding workloads and applications. This relationship will help our customers leveraging the Oracle Cloud, execute on their business strategies by taking advantage of the Megaport platform for their high bandwidth connectivity needs.”

“In the new era of cloud-enabled IT, enterprises require a cloud provider that can power a full breadth of integrated services and provide end-to-end support with applications (SaaS), platform (PaaS) and compute and storage infrastructure (IaaS),” commented Megaport CEO Vincent English.
