Infrastructure VAD Arrow ECS has extended its collaboration with Oracle, adding Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) services to its ArrowSphere offering. Under the agreement, approved channel partners across EMEA will be able to access a range of Oracle Cloud services including storage, compute, database and analytics.
Oracle’s modern, next-generation cloud is built and optimized specifically to help enterprises run their most demanding workloads securely. With unique architecture and capabilities, OCI helps deliver security, performance, and cost savings.
Regarding the new agreement, Eric Nowak, president for Arrow ECS in EMEA, said: “our relationship with Oracle spans over two decades, and adding OCI services to ArrowSphere is the next logical step. We’re committed to helping our customers grow their cloud businesses, and these products combine the flexibility and cost benefits of a public cloud with the predictability, security and control of an on-premises environment. Our customers want easy access to cloud solutions, and ArrowSphere delivers by removing complexity and simplifying the connection between cloud and ‘as-a-service’ providers, channel partners and end-users.”
“Today’s announcement with Arrow ECS provides customers with more choice and flexibility in their use of cloud to help them solve their most pressing and complex business problems”, said Havovi Yazdabadi, VP of EMEA technology alliances and channel at Oracle. “OCI currently operates 33 commercial regions and seven government regions, in addition to multiple dedicated and national security regions. By making OCI services available to Arrow’s cloud channel network more customers than ever will gain access to the cloud.”
ArrowSphere helps channel partners to manage, differentiate and scale their cloud business. Its marketplace includes all the leading hyperscale providers, as well as public and private IaaS, PaaS, SaaS and cloud software offerings. The platform provides end-to-end cloud lifecycle management with features like automated provisioning, comprehensive billing integration, reporting and predictive analytics. ArrowSphere also offers integrated DevOps and customizable storefronts that enable end customers to manage their own transactions.
Arrow Electronics has teamed with Oracle for more than 20 years. It offers a host of dedicated services that help customers go to market, sell and deploy OCI services, as well as dedicated training programmes to help ensure customers are able to extract the most value possible from their move to Oracle Cloud.
