Colt Technology Services Announces Expanded Cloud Offerings with Oracle FastConnect

Cloud

 Colt Technology Services, a leading provider of agile, high bandwidth connectivity solutions and a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) today announced it will provide dedicated, private and on-demand access to Oracle Cloud through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect.

The Colt IQ Network is a 100Gbps optimised intelligent network that’s distributed to data centres and data network connection points around the world. The expanded collaboration between Colt and Oracle allows customers to take advantage of on-demand, high-speed secure connectivity from their sites to Oracle Cloud.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect provides dedicated connectivity to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and other Oracle Cloud services. FastConnect provides an easy, elastic, and economical way for companies in the UK to connect to Oracle Cloud with high bandwidth and low latency, providing a more reliable and consistent networking experience versus public internet-based connections.  

Colt On Demand for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure allows customers to self-provision secure, high bandwidth connectivity to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regions in a matter of minutes, and allows them to dynamically scale bandwidth up or down in near-real-time. Colt On Demand for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is controlled by an online customer portal and purchased through a flexible, pay as you use commercial model.

Colt and Oracle announced their initial relationship in October 2018. Today, through further collaboration, Oracle customers can now benefit from reliable high bandwidth access to their Oracle Cloud data and applications globally via The Colt IQ Network. 

Keri Gilder, Chief Commercial Officer for Colt said: “These next few years are going to see the momentum shift for enterprises who are starting to migrate more and more business-critical applications to the cloud. In order to experience a truly successful cloud migration, you need a network that reacts in the same way as the cloud – flexibly and intuitively. 

“By deepening our relationship with Oracle, a best-in-class network is being paired with a best-in-class cloud platform, and we know this partnership will enable enterprises to enter the next decade in the best possible position; able to digitally evolve and thrive,” Gilder added.  

“Enterprise customers require seamless secure connectivity from their data centres and networks to Oracle Cloud for their most demanding workloads and applications,” said Vinay Kumar, vice president, product management, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “The expanded collaboration between Colt and Oracle will allow enterprises who rely on latency sensitive enterprise applications, big data and high-performance computing to really make the most of their cloud environment. Usage of Oracle’s highly secure Generation 2 Cloud via the dedicated private line connection that’s pre-configured with Colt gives enterprise customers the performance, compatibility and security they require to run their most demanding workloads in cloud, and easily connect them with the workloads they continue to run in their own data centres.”

Oracle Cloud is built and optimised specifically to help enterprises run their most demanding workloads securely. With unique architecture and capabilities, Oracle Cloud delivers unmatched security, performance, and cost savings. Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud is the only place to run Oracle Autonomous Database, the industry's first and only self-driving database. Oracle Cloud offers a comprehensive cloud computing portfolio, from application development and business analytics to data management, integration, security, artificial intelligence (AI), and blockchain.
