Oracle and Verizon will pair their respective cloud-related services into a joint offering. The new Verizon Secure Cloud Interconnect for Oracle FastConnect enables enterprises to access Oracle's FastConnect services suite via Verizon's Secure Cloud Interconnect connectivity options.

The combination offers connectivity to Oracle Cloud data centers in the U.S. and Europe with options for consumption-based bandwidth, pre-provisioned on-demand resources, controlled application performance, and varying classes of service provisioned via Verizon's Dynamic Network Manager. Fast Connect services enable customers to establish a secure high-speed private MPLS connection between their existing IT infrastructure and the cloud compute resources on the Oracle Cloud.

Verizon says they also will enable customers using Oracle's services to store data in multiple settings, including a traditional IT environment as well as dedicated on or off premises clouds.

"With Verizon's leading Secure Cloud Interconnect service, Oracle customers can benefit from the latest in networking technology as they continually groom their networks to handle the demands of their business," said Diby Malakar, vice president of product management at Oracle. "We are providing multiple ways for our customers to deploy their applications in the way that makes good business sense via what is arguably one of the industry's most reliable networking platforms."

The pact with Oracle brings to nine the number of cloud providers Verizon supports via its Secure Cloud Interconnect platform. The others include Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, HPE Rapid Connect, IBM Cloud Softlayer, Microsoft ExpressRoute for Office 365, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, Microsoft Azure Government, Salesforce, SAP, and Verizon Cloud and Enterprise Cloud Federal Edition.
