Oracle’s cloudy partnership with Microsoft, announced in June, was one of the more eyebrow-raising stories of 2019. On the surface, it may have seemed peculiar, but digging down, the duo’s focus on retail customers particularly with some retailers wishing to steer clear of AWS made sense.Now, the two companies are extending their alliance with the launch of a new cloud interconnect in Amsterdam. Organisations who are customers of both, already able to connect Azure and Oracle Cloud seamlessly in the US, will be able to build workloads which seamlessly interoperate between Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud regions within the European Union data jurisdiction.Alongside the interoperability between both clouds is integrated identity and access management, meaning customers do not have to play around with entering multiple passwords when accessing their cloud resources and applications
