With the addition of the Oracle Cloud Chicago Region, Digital Realty now hosts nine OCI FastConnect PoPs across four continents, including Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, London, Madrid, Marseille, and Sao Paulo.

“Access to OCI FastConnect at our Chicago facility enables Digital Realty customers to achieve low-latency connectivity to the new Oracle Cloud Chicago Region,” says Chris Sharp, CTO at Digital Realty. “Our global customers can quickly establish access to the Oracle Cloud Region via ServiceFabric™, regardless of where they are located, bringing enhanced connectivity to customers and partners across the globe.”

By colocating IT infrastructure at Digital Realty’s Chicago data center in a hybrid cloud architecture, customers can benefit from low-latency access to the Oracle Cloud Chicago Region locally. Mission-critical workloads with a requirement to reside near or adjacent to the cloud benefit from colocation on our global platform.

“For example, customers can deploy Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer running Oracle databases that require a private infrastructure and connect these to the Oracle Cloud Chicago Region via the OCI FastConnect PoP located within the same facility. Digital Realty operates ten data centers in Chicago, offering 3.4 million square feet of colocation space,” adds Sharp.

“Customers require seamless connectivity from their data centers and networks to Oracle Cloud for their most demanding workloads and applications,” says Leo Leung, Vice President, OCI and Oracle Technology. “With the FastConnect service, customers can provision the dedicated and private connections they need today and can now easily scale with their growing business demands across all markets, thanks to Digital Realty’s global footprint.”
