Oracle FastConnect

Direct Cloud Connectivity for Mission-Critical Applications


Extend Your Infrastructure to an Integrated Cloud Platform

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) FastConnect delivers cloud connectivity from your on-premises infrastructure to OCI through fast, private, direct connections. Dedicated connectivity enables you to run your workloads in the cloud with high throughput, reduced latency and consistent network performance.  

Reduce the time required to augment network capacity and support the next wave of high-bandwidth, low-latency hybrid applications such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and digital media production.

Gear transitioning into data Digital Transformation Icon
Bring the power of analytics to any data at any scale, across platforms and environments, with predictable costs and economical, fast data transfer. Choose 1Gbps, 10Gbps, 20Gps and 50Gps port speeds. Gather and transform diverse sources of data rapidly to produce insights that can boost your competitive advantage. Make data-driven decisions about efficiency, risk, security and go-to-market campaigns.
Server with cloud Virtualized Servers Icon
Run large or small database workloads on OCI to consolidate databases and support mission-critical applications. Back up databases with one click. Support Oracle Cloud services workloads with high availability, redundancy, security and scalability. Monitor and manage your hybrid environment connectivity from a single point.
Enterprise building icon
Access FastConnect in CoreSite’s Northern Virginia and Los Angeles data centers through direct fiber connectivity. The Open Cloud Exchange (OCX) provides connectivity in other CoreSite markets. Together, FastConnect and the OCX offer on-demand connectivity and the ability to build a fully redundant architecture ready to support nearly any data-driven business need.
Interconnection icon
Access all supported OCI services within one region with a single FastConnect virtual circuit connection, which can be set up in minutes. But is this optimal? It depends on the redundancy requirements you need for your Oracle network. We typically recommend multiple connections as part of a business continuity and disaster recovery strategy.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIGH-SCALE AND HIGH-PERFORMANCE COMPUTING? High-scale refers to the ability of a system like an Oracle network to accommodate large volumes of work, data or computing requests by distributing workloads to achieve parallel processing. High-scale workloads include big data analytics, artificial intelligence and financial modeling. High-performance refers to processing speed and throughput accompanied by low latency and responsiveness. Examples are high-performance computing, or HPC, for scientific and supercomputing applications. Some people view HPC as a type of high-scale workload.  
WHAT ARE THE TOP BENEFITS OF USING FASTCONNECT ORACLE CLOUD SERVICES? Oracle offers Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions that enable enterprises to solve a range of business challenges without capital investment. Users can scale resources up and down on demand, and high-scale/high-performance computing supports complex workloads and large dataset processing. 
DOES ORACLE CLOUD FASTCONNECT SUPPORT REGIONAL CONNECTIVITY? Yes, FastConnect can be used to connect to multiple Oracle Cloud regions to extend private networks in multiple geographies.
HOW DOES ORACLE CLOUD FASTCONNECT SUPPORT DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION? Oracle Cloud services offer advanced database services and access to technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), blockchain and internet of things (IoT). Collaboration and productivity tools can help innovate business processes and teamwork. 
HOW DOES IN-REGION FASTCONNECT CONNECTIVITY SIMPLIFY NETWORK ARCHITECTURE AND IMPROVE PERFORMANCE? Proximity is the key. When FastConnect and Oracle Cloud resources are near each other, enterprises often find it’s easier to configure, troubleshoot and manage the network. And, data transfers occur rapidly over private, direct connections.  
HOW DOES DIRECT CONNECT ENABLE DISASTER RECOVERY? In addition to private, secure connections over which data can be replicated between on-premises infrastructure and Oracle Cloud, FastConnect tools assist with automated failover and testing of disaster recovery plans. Bypassing the internet and its congestion and security risks also enhances disaster recovery.
