Arrow Electronics adds Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Services to ArrowSphere
Arrow Electronics, an Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) member, 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 optimised specifically to help enterprises run their most demanding workloads securely. With unique architecture and capabilities, OCI helps deliver security, performance, and cost savings.
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 customisable storefronts that enable end customers to manage their own transactions.
“Our relationship with Oracle spans over two decades, and adding OCI services to ArrowSphere is the next logical step,” said Eric Nowak, president for Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions business in EMEA. “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 Electronics 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, vice president 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.”
