Businesses across the UK will soon be able to utilise a significant boost in cloud computing as Oracle and Microsoft confirmed they would launch multi-cloud capacity services to London.

Leading technology players have announced that customers in London will be able to interconnect Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for the first time as they plan to increase multi-cloud services worldwide. Microsoft and Oracle confirmed their multicloud partnership just a few months ago after a number of customers were seeking to work within both platforms.

Oracle recently stated that London was one of the highest and active Oracle Cloud regions and explained that their latest announcement would enable customers in the London area to access more services than previously offered.

The London announcement represents the first expansion outside of the US for the Microsoft-Oracle collaboration. Interconnected cloud regions will enable conditions for less latency, resulting in higher data transfer levels and improved application interaction speeds within the cloud.

Oracle confirmed that the partnership would enable a wider range of customers across London to launch innovative new solutions for their business systems. Oracle highlighted that the service will provide customers with a diverse range of new services in Azure, which can be used within the cloud.
