Colt Technology Services will offer connectivity to Oracle Cloud through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect in Singapore within Oracle’s new Singapore cloud region. Oracle customers can harness the power of Oracle Cloud locally, including Oracle Autonomous Database, to help unlock innovation and drive business growth.

Colt’s Dedicated Cloud Access and On-Demand offerings combines Colt’s highly-secure network solutions – used globally by enterprises and capital market firms alike – with OCI, a pre-built, cloud-based system, which also supports enterprises requiring the strongest security credentials.

Colt On Demand for OCI can also enable customers to access secure, high bandwidth connectivity to OCI cloud regions in near-real-time, allowing them to also scale bandwidth up or down dynamically in near-real-time. Colt On Demand for OCI is controlled by an online customer portal and is consumed through a flexible, pay as you use commercial model, delivering a best-in-class, cloud networking experience.

Colt’s cloud connectivity and on demand propositions are underpinned by the Colt IQ Network – a 100Gbps optimised, intelligent network that spans four continents with Colt-owned infrastructure in 32 countries. Its global coverage connects more than 900 data centres and 29,000 on net buildings globally, including over 90 data centres and 2,500 on net buildings in Asia.

With OCI, customers benefit from built-in security, consistent high performance, simple predictable pricing, and the tools and expertise needed to bring enterprise workloads to the cloud quickly and efficiently.

Ashby Corrigan, Colt’s Regional Sales Director, Enterprise and Capital Markets Asia in Singapore said: “Multinational companies across various industries are selecting Singapore as their business hub for Asia. We are keen to support enterprise customers with existing Oracle applications and also those who are hoping to do secure migration to Oracle Cloud in Asia. Through our expanded collaboration with Oracle, enterprises in Singapore will be empowered to grow their business securely, underpinned by a best-in-class enterprise cloud platform. We look forward to enabling customers in Singapore and any others in Asia also looking to migrate to OCI, realise an optimal cloud connectivity experience with OCI and Colt.”

The Colt IQ Network was expanded to Singapore in 2015 and now supports strategic customers across all key industry verticals following strong customer demand. In June 2020, as COVID-19 became a catalyst for enterprises requiring even greater flexibility, Colt launched its On Demand proposition in Singapore; enabling enterprise customers locally to also benefit from this cloud-like networking experience.

OCI’s extensive network of more than 70 FastConnect global and regional partners offer customers dedicated connectivity to Oracle Cloud regions and OCI services – providing customers with the best options anywhere in the world.
