Secure and reliable connectivity to the cloud

Establish private connectivity to OCI from your data centre, office or co-location environment to reduce your network costs, increase bandwidth throughput and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections. With our direct cloud connect service (Colt Dedicated Cloud Access), we provide secure and reliable network connectivity between enterprise data centres or office locations and the Oracle Cloud (this includes connectivity to both the OCI Public Cloud as well as the OCI Cloud specifically for the UK Government).

Colt is a Oracle Partner Network member and a Global OCI Fast-Connect Partner, providing point-to-cloud and multi-cloud Ethernet connectivity solutions (on request a managed router or IP-VPN integration can be offered). Your Dedicated Cloud Access solution will be delivered in sync with OCI - so you can benefit from an end-to-end cloud experience from the very first minute.
