SES will be offering private, dedicated connectivity to Oracle Cloud through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect. Customers can harness the power of Oracle Cloud locally, including Oracle Autonomous Database, to unlock innovation and drive business growth.
The direct access to Oracle Cloud as a FastConnect partner is part of SES’s strategy of offering customers high-performance, low-latency and secure connections to the leading public cloud providers.
SES will be using its Cloud Direct service to connect customers to Oracle Cloud applications and services over its network of medium earth orbit (MEO) and geostationary (GEO) satellites – a key advantage for enterprises, the government and other customers who require low-latency and secure connections in remote, rural or other locations with limited network options. The Cloud Direct service will also be available on SES’s next-generation MEO constellation, O3b mPOWER, launching this year. O3b mPOWER will provide SES customers with satellite-enabled cloud connection, supporting multi-gigabit services that adapt dynamically to network demand.
With OCI, customers benefit from best-in-class security, consistent high performance, simple predictable pricing, and the tools and expertise needed to bring enterprise workloads to the cloud quickly and efficiently.
“As the only multi-orbit satellite provider with direct cloud connections to four of the top five public cloud providers, SES empowers our customers with the flexibility and options to optimize their cloud services for reach, latency, performance or other business requirements,” said Sergy Mummert, senior vice president, sales global cloud & strategic partnerships at SES. “The launch of O3b mPOWER this year will massively scale the intelligent service automation and flexibility of our Cloud Direct service and help with new cloud capabilities for customers around the world.”
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.
