Cloudflare, Inc. announced that Oracle is joining the Bandwidth Alliance as the latest cloud provider committing to eliminate unnecessary data transfer fees. Now, organizations that use both Cloudflare cybersecurity solutions and Oracle's cloud infrastructure will automatically save money by avoiding the high data transfer fees charged by cloud providers outside of the Bandwidth Alliance. The Bandwidth Alliance, launched in September 2018, is a group of forward-thinking cloud and networking companies committed to discounting or waiving data transfer fees (also known as egress fees) for shared customers. The Bandwidth Alliance now includes 19 partners that are working toward providing the best performing and most cost-efficient experience for mutual customers in the face of egregious high egress fees. By partnering, the Bandwidth Alliance?s members are able to pass on the cost savings directly to their customers so they can choose from multiple cloud providers without needing to factor in bandwidth costs when selecting compute, storage, and other cloud services. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure already offers low networking prices that enable organizations to move significant quantities of data for less. Inbound data transfer is free and outbound is free up to the first 10TB for each regional zone or product SKU. Together with Cloudflare, Oracle will offer mutual customers zero egress for data sourced from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Object Storage starting with regions in North America. In addition, Oracle and Cloudflare will work together to expand this globally and drive to zero the already low data transfer rates compared to the incumbent clouds.
