FastConnect allows customers to connect directly to their Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) virtual cloud network via dedicated, private, high-bandwidth connections. Then, based on the amount of data, customers simply choose an appropriate port speed and pay a consistent, low price each month. Other providers charge for the amount of data moved, which can be expensive and unpredictable.

FastConnect use cases

  • Latency-sensitive enterprise applications

    Applications with relational database back-ends are especially vulnerable to latency and require predictable performance. Oracle FastConnect ensures consistent network performance and low latency.

  • Big data and high performance computing

    When transferring large amounts of data—for example, running batch jobs or analyzing real-time queries—high performance and low latency are a must. With dedicated connections, Oracle FastConnect provides the throughput and consistency required for data-intensive jobs.

  • Sensitive data that cannot traverse the internet

    FastConnect isolates sensitive data traffic and improves security and privacy because data traffic flows strictly over trusted endpoints. Use an optional site-to-site IPSec VPN to encrypt the data.

  • Lift and shift to the cloud

    Moving applications and databases often requires dedicated network connectivity. Migration activities typically involve large data transfers and short-time windows. FastConnect meets both needs by providing high performance at a market-leading price point. Plus, customers are not forced to pay for the volume of the data.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect customer successes

Customers in diverse industries leverage Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect to create dedicated, private connections with high-bandwidth options to ensure a more reliable and consistent networking experience when compared to internet-based connections.
