Digital Realty has said it will provide customers within the Interxion Paris Digital Park (IPDP) access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services via the new Oracle Paris Cloud Region.
IPDP is Interxion’s largest campus in France, situated 3km from Paris.
According to a statement from Digital Realty, the decision to open Oracle’s second cloud region in France followed growing demand for hybrid cloud services from the public sector, enterprises and SMEs.
Oracle’s second cloud region with Interxion in France extends an existing partnership, following the launch of its first cloud region in Marseille last year, and at a global level with Digital Realty.
This marks the opening of Oracle’s 38th cloud region worldwide.
“After the opening of our first cloud region in Marseille, we have selected Interxion again to help deploy our critical infrastructure and offer Oracle Cloud Infrastructure via our newest cloud region in Paris,” said Christophe Negrier, SVP EMEA South, Cloud Business and Managing Director, Oracle France.
“This relationship is based on a common objective to support the digital transformation of companies by limiting their environmental impact. Interxion France’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy has thus proved to be an important criterion of choice for us, particularly in view of their contribution to carbon neutrality for scopes one and two. In addition, Interxion’s use of renewable energy corresponds to Oracle’s commitment to sustainability and its pledge to power all Oracle Cloud regions worldwide with 100 percent renewable energy by 2025, which is already the case in all of our data centres in Europe.”
Fabrice Coquio, SVP, Digital Realty & Managing Director, Interxion France, added, “We are very excited to welcome Oracle’s second cloud region in France to Interxion. This partnership enriches our value offering for our customer communities by removing the barriers associated with the adoption of hybrid and multi-cloud environments in the Paris market. It is also satisfying to see that our commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our data centres was a key factor in Oracle’s decision to select Interxion again. We are proud to provide this level of service while supporting companies in their digital and environmental transformations.”
