(Bloomberg) — The internet is steadily pulling in more shoppers, advertisers and businesses, helping the largest technology companies including Amazon.com Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Alphabet Inc. churn out strong revenue and profit growth for another quarter.
All three beat analysts' sales and profit estimates in the September quarter, sending their shares higher in late trading Thursday and putting the stocks on course to hit records or come close Friday. Consumers and corporations are moving more of their day-to-day functions and business to the internet, from advertising and shopping to workplace software, data storage and applications hosting. That means increased sales for Amazon's online marketplace, more eyeballs on ads dished out in Google's mobile search results, and busier servers in all three companies' data centers.
Even technology companies on the periphery of this internet boom managed to catch some of the wave. Intel Corp.'s server-chip business has struggled as big companies use their own data centers less and move operations to the cloud. However, the semiconductor company is now selling more to the big internet companies that lead in those services.
There are risks: regulators around the world are considering how to control internet companies' influence, and in the U.S., Google and Facebook Inc. are facing criticism after their advertising services were misused by Russia-linked groups to influence last year's presidential election. But

REDWOOD CITY, CA – Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company and a Gold-level member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced a significant expansion of its dedicated, private access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to 16 additional Equinix International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers in North America and Europe. As a part of the expansion, customers can now easily and privately connect to OCI using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect within the Equinix FR5 IBX data center in Frankfurt via dedicated cross connects and the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ (ECX). Additionally, the Oracle and Equinix partner and platform integration now provides connectivity to OCI FastConnect via ECX to customers in eight new metros in North America and seven new metros in Europe.

The expansion brings the total number of Equinix IBX data centers where Oracle FastConnect is deployed to six and total number of locations where connectivity to FastConnect is available to 18 metros, globally.

  • New North American metros where access to OCI FastConnect is now available via ECX include Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Silicon Valley and Toronto. This adds to the existing North American OCI FastConnect deployment at Equinix in Washington, D.C.
  • In addition to Frankfurt, new European metros where OCI FastConnect is now available via ECX include Amsterdam, Dublin, London, Manchester, Paris, Stockholm and Zurich.
  • This expansion will enable enterprise customers across North America and Europe to migrate and run compute, applications and data workloads to Oracle Cloud in a high-throughput, scalable manner that delivers consistent and predictable performance. This marks a significant investment in the Equinix and Oracle relationship, building upon Oracle’s highly successful and growing OCI FastConnect Classic service previously launched in 2015 and deployed in Equinix IBX data centers in Amsterdam, Chicago, London, Sydney and Washington, D.C.
  • Whether a customer requires direct connection to Oracle as part of a broader interconnection strategy, or if they need to migrate data-heavy applications to the cloud, connection to OCI inside Equinix is a highly scalable solution for many enterprise users. It can further a customer’s efforts to address increasing data privacy and other regulatory requirements and general data sovereignty concerns.
  • Interconnection is paramount for companies across North America and Europe. In fact, according to the Global Interconnection Index, a market study published recently by Equinix, the U.S. is the largest and most advanced region for Interconnection Bandwidth growth, with 82 percent of enterprises’ bandwidth expected to be dedicated to interconnection to networks and cloud by 2020. The Index also found that Interconnection Bandwidth in Europe is expected to grow 44% per annum to reach 1,450+ Tbps by 2020. Europe’s growth in Interconnection will be driven by a number of factors, including data sovereignty and the need for European businesses to exchange information with other businesses and services, like Oracle, in-region.
  • Oracle Cloud delivers nearly 1,000 SaaS applications and 50 enterprise-class PaaS and IaaS services to customers in more than 195 countries around the world, and supports 55 billion transactions each day.

“We are excited to continue our collaboration with Oracle and extend this service to multiple U.S. and European metros. The ability to connect directly to Oracle is an essential strategy for enterprises as they deploy workloads to the cloud. By providing direct access, our mutual customers can create a high-speed, dedicated and low-latency connection that allows them to fully realize the benefits of Oracle deployment, while complying with local data sovereignty regulations. We look forward to ongoing collaborations with Oracle, bringing this solution to additional Equinix metro areas across the globe.” Robert Blackburn, Global Managing Director, Oracle Strategic Alliance, Equinix

“Customers require seamless connectivity from their data centers and networks to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for their most demanding workloads and applications. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using FastConnect in Equinix IBX data centers, customers can provision the private connections they need today and easily scale with their growing business demands. We look forward to helping more customers connect to Oracle cloud using FastConnect and ECX in a growing number of markets.” Kash Iftikhar, Vice President IaaS, Public Cloud Services, Oracle
