Oracle and TIM Collaborate to Accelerate Cloud Adoption in Italy

TIM, the leading telecommunications provider, has partnered strategically with Oracle. This partnership aims to integrate Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) into TIM’s managed cloud services, taking a step towards meeting Italy’s evolving cloud requirements.

As part of this integration, TIM’s business unit, TIM Enterprise, will be the host partner for Oracle’s forthcoming cloud region in Italy, situated within TIM’s data centre in Turin.

Part of Oracle’s distributed cloud strategy, the upcoming Oracle Cloud Turin Region will provide public and private sector organizations access to a wide range of cloud services to migrate all types of workloads from their data centres to OCI, modernize their applications, and innovate with data, analytics, and AI.

Oracle is the only hyperscaler capable of delivering AI and a full suite of 100+ cloud services across dedicated, public, and hybrid cloud environments worldwide.

This includes Oracle Autonomous Database, MySQL HeatWave Database Service, Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes, Oracle Cloud VMware Solution, OCI Generative AI service, and AI infrastructure.

With the new cloud region in Turin and the existing Oracle Cloud Milan Region, Oracle will enable customers in Italy to enhance their business continuity by replicating workloads to distributed locations, while helping address their digital sovereignty and compliance requirements by keeping replicated data in Italy.

The upcoming Turin region will be collocated in one of the data centres in TIM Enterprise’s network of 16 data centres in Italy, which has been developed to the highest technological, security, and environmental standards, and proven to meet the requirements of public and private sector organizations.

“We are pleased to be working with Italy’s leading telecommunications provider to bring OCI to public and private sector organizations and support their migration to the cloud,” said Richard Smith, executive vice president and general manager, EMEA Cloud Infrastructure, Oracle.

“By adding OCI to its robust cloud service offerings, TIM Enterprise will be able to provide a cloud platform used by customers all over the world to run their most mission-critical workloads in the cloud. In addition, with the upcoming second cloud region in Italy, we are reaffirming our commitment to helping Italian organizations of all sizes and industries accelerate the adoption of AI and other innovative technologies.”

“Our collaboration with Oracle is an important milestone for TIM Enterprise and reinforces our commitment to providing innovative, sustainable and secure cloud solutions to public and private sector organizations in Italy,” said Elio Schiavo, chief enterprise & innovative solutions officer, TIM. “Our cloud proposition is enriched by the major global players in the industry and is a strong foundation for our future growth in a highly strategic sector for the country.

Oracle’s selection of our data centre network to support its new cloud region is a testament to the absolute excellence of our infrastructure, which is unique in the Italian market in terms of its reach and performance.”

As part of the agreement, TIM Enterprise will offer OCI services to its public and private sector customers across the region, leveraging its long-standing experience in helping customers in any industry migrate their mission-critical workloads to the cloud.

With built-in security, superior performance, high availability, and lower cost, these services are designed to support mission-critical and cloud-native workloads in large public and private sector environments.

As part of the collaboration, TIM will also use OCI to migrate some of the Group’s internal applications to the cloud.
