OCRE Framework Sees Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Available to Researchers Across Germany and Ireland

IT solutions and managed services provider, Logicalis Group, has won the tender for the Open Clouds for Research Environments (OCRE) framework across Ireland and Germany.


The OCRE project aims to contribute to establishing a service delivery chain, to enable Research and Education institutes in Europe to adopt and use digital Earth observation and cloud solutions, in an easy, safe, predictable and controlled manner. The tender was issued by GÉANT (a network of 39 European National Research and Education Network (NREN) organisations) and 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 Ireland and Germany with access to modern, secure and scalable Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), awarding a call-off contract. As an Oracle partner since 1999, researchers and members of the education community will benefit from Logicalis’ expertise and know-how of the entire Oracle portfolio.


Logicalis Group CEO, Bob Bailkoski, said; “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.”


The Oracle Partner Network (OPN) is designed to enable partners to accelerate the transition to cloud,  driving superior customer business outcomes. The OPN program allows partners to engage with Oracle through track(s) aligned to how they go to market: Cloud Build for partners that provide products or services built on or integrated with Oracle Cloud; Cloud Sell for partners that resell Oracle Cloud technology; Cloud Service for partners that implement, deploy and manage Oracle Cloud Services; and License & Hardware for partners that build, service or sell Oracle software licenses or hardware products.



Christoph Heiming, Senior Director, A&C Oracle Germany said; “There is a strong demand for commercial cloud services in the European research community that has, until now, been limited by the absence of procurement frameworks and the lack of technical skills.

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.”


Aside from being a member of Oracle Partner Network (OPN), Logicalis has partnerships with Cisco, Microsoft, HPE, IBM, NetApp, ServiceNow, and VMware), and their 6,500 employees serve 10,000 customers around the world in key IT industry drivers such as Security, Cloud, Data Management and IoT.
