Interconnection services provider Megaport has sealed a deal with Oracle to facilitate connections for Oracle customers via its data centre network.

Under the cloud connectivity partnership, Oracle will look 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.

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.

"Oracle is a major innovator of public cloud infrastructure, as evidenced by the announcement of their latest cloud offerings at Oracle OpenWorld 2016,” said Vincent English, chief executive of Megaport.
