Vodafone has signed a multi-year deal with Oracle to modernize and move the telco’s European IT infrastructure to the cloud.
Per the accord, Vodafone will move a significant number of its systems to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Dedicated Region. The fully managed region is set to integrate Oracle’s public cloud offerings into Vodafone’s network and data centers.

The strategic move places Vodafone in an ideal position to modernize its existing Oracle databases, while also supporting the scale-out of mission-critical OSS and BSS systems.
“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,” stated Oracle.
Vodafone’s partnership with Oracle also supports the telco’s multi-year initiative to transform its pivotal IT infrastructure into a shared, on-premises, open-standard platform that supports and scales the next generation of digital services.
“As Vodafone focuses on growth, data is key to how we evolve our business, build new capabilities and innovate to meet the needs of our customers. Our collaboration with Oracle supports our vision of becoming a technology communications company,” said Scott Petty, chief digital & IT officer at Vodafone.
“The agreement enables Oracle to bring its entire portfolio of cloud services directly into Vodafone data centers. This includes the same architecture, software, services and control plane used in OCI public cloud.”
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,” added Petty.
