NTT Communications has announced the extension of its Multi-Cloud Connect connection to Oracle Cloud to help multi-national customers take advantage of performance, cost and innovation benefits of the cloud.
While enterprises understand the promise and many benefits of the cloud, most experience issues such as latency, packet loss and security threats given that connectivity to cloud services are still heavily dependent to public Internet. With Multi-Cloud Connect, Oracle Cloud users will be able to leverage NTT Com’s MPLS network to access their business critical applications.
Multi-Cloud Connect will connect directly to Oracle Cloud’s platform through Oracle Network Cloud Services – FastConnect – enabling private connection to its broad portfolios and features: platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). This includes middleware such as “Oracle Database Cloud Service” and “Oracle Java Cloud Service”, as well as integration and business analytics features.
Also, NTT Com and Oracle will enable hybrid deployment of Oracle Cloud and Oracle software hosted on-premises or “Oracle Cloud at Customer”, under one global network.
Multi-Cloud Connect currently connects to Oracle Cloud as well as other third party cloud services – such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Office 365, Dynamics CRM Online as well as NTT Com’s private cloud service – via a security-enhanced, private Layer 3 connection.
Multi-Cloud Connect allows enterprises to easily meet the needs of different applications, by enabling a hybrid cloud environment, such as a mix of public cloud and private cloud, or on-premises, private cloud (Enterprise Cloud) and/or public cloud.
Multi-Cloud Connect is directly connected to public clouds hosted in key markets of Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
