Zain Group announced it will offer dedicated and private access to Oracle Cloud through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect, becoming one of the first mobile operators in the region to receive this accreditation.

The elevation of Zain to becoming a gold level member with Oracle means the telco can now connect customers directly with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure including to applications such as compute, storage and content delivery, databases and other services. The collaboration bolsters Zain’s own Cloud-based activities that allow customers to connect their office/data centers to Oracle’s Cloud over Zain’s international MPLS network with dedicated bandwidth options ranging from 10Mbps up to 10Gbps.

Zain Cloud Connect is a platform that connects customers and different cloud service providers (CSP) in a simple and cost-effective way. It may enable customers to build flexible and scalable hybrid cloud-based solutions, providing customers with the most convenient way to connect to different CSPs.

“We have identified the government and enterprise market as key strategic customers and we are dedicated to providing them with the latest and most robust tools and solutions for them to go about their businesses successfully.” Henri Kassab, Zain Group’s Managing Director, International, Wholesale & Roaming

Kassab continued, “Zain has been a pioneering company since inception and so we are proud to introduce another first to the communications sector in the MENA region through the availability of Oracle FastConnect. We believe strongly that innovation is driven by the delivery of cutting-edge solutions, and Zain continues to seek out partnerships with market-leading technology providers to achieve this goal.”

“Customers require seamless connectivity from their data centers and networks to Oracle Cloud for their most demanding workloads and applications. With the FastConnect service, customers can provision the dedicated and private connections they need today and easily scale with their growing business demands.” Vinay Kumar, vice president of product management, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
