London – 19, May 2021 – Logicalis Group, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, and a member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) today announced it has been chosen as the Oracle Cloud Partner of Choice for the Open Clouds for Research Environments (OCRE) framework across Germany and Ireland. The tender issued by GÉANT (the pan-European network for the research and education community) gives researchers and the education community across 40 European countries access to commercial cloud services without the need to run complex public procurements and competitive tenders. The framework agreement with Logicalis provides universities and research facilities in Germany and Ireland with access to modern, secure and scalable Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), awarding a call-off contract. This allows researchers and members of the education community a quicker and easier way to access the benefits of cloud services, leveraging Logicalis’ expertise.

We’re delighted that our Cloud Services combined with Logicalis’ expertise will help empower the research capabilities of European institutes and universities on their cloud journey”.

Bob Bailkoski, CEO, Logicalis Group, adds: “This project signifies a positive step in the digital transformation of the European research landscape, and we are proud to be part of it. Our participation in this framework, means members of the research community can access best-in-class cloud solutions, while leveraging Logicalis’ proven expertise in the provision of Oracle Cloud Services to unlock the full benefits of cloud computing.”
