NEW DELHI: Vodafone has struck a multi-year deal with Oracle to upgrade its European IT infrastructure and accelerate transition to the cloud.

Under the multi-year agreement, Vodafone said it will modernize and “migrate a large number of its systems to OCI Dedicated Region”. Oracle, in turn, will deploy OCI Dedicated Region in Vodafone’s main data centers that manage its European IT and network operations, an official statement said.

Oracle’s Dedicated Region product launched in mid-2020, acts as a fully managed private cloud that brings all of Oracle’s cloud services into customers’ data centers.

This will provide a dedicated cloud platform for Vodafone to modernize its “thousands of Oracle databases” as well as to support and scale its mission-critical OSS and BSS systems, including CRM and order management, the statement added.

The OCI Dedicated Region brings more than 100 public cloud services into customers’ data centres to help them meet strict latency, data residency, and data sovereignty requirements that are key to many IT modernisation efforts.

The implementation will also enable Vodafone to build new cloud-based applications faster, and by taking advantage of its geographical scale, launch them in multiple markets at the same time.

“The flexibility offered by OCI enables us to build a robust, secure, and extensible cloud platform in our own data centers, while also providing the operational agility and scalability required to support the growth and diversification of our business,” said Scott Petty, Chief Digital & IT Officer, Vodafone.

“We are excited to bring the power of OCI to Vodafone’s data centers to support the company and its partners as they fast-track this vision and deliver the next generation of connected services,” said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
