On-premises–level control in the cloud

Oracle virtual cloud networks (VCNs) provide a customizable and private network in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Just like a traditional data center network, the VCN provides you with complete control over your network environment. This includes assigning your own private IP address space, creating subnets and route tables, and configuring stateful firewalls.

Key features
  • Fully configurable IP addresses
  • 10 VCNs per region
  • Up to 300 subnets per region
  • 300 route tables per VCN
  • Up to 100 rules per route table
  • Bring your own IP Address (BYOIP)

Run HPC workloads with minimal latency

Oracle’s cluster networking provides RDMA (remote direct memory access) over converged Ethernet (RoCE) v2 and a 100 Gbps network to create HPC clusters with microsecond latencies—ideal for the most demanding HPC workloads.

HPC use cases
  • Computational fluid dynamics
  • Molecular modeling
  • Automobile collision emulation
  • 3D video rendering and animation
  • Weather forecast modeling
  • Financial risk simulations
  • Contextual search
  • Deep learning, AI, and machine learning

Private, dedicated connection into Oracle Cloud

Oracle FastConnect allows customers to connect directly to their Oracle Cloud Infrastructure virtual cloud network via dedicated, private, high-bandwidth connections. Move data over the dedicated line at a low, flat monthly rate based on the port speed chosen, not the amount of data transferred.

Key features
  • Predictable connectivity via deterministic paths
  • More than 50 FastConnect partners
  • Colocation cross-connects available
  • No charge for inbound or outbound data

Connect securely with Oracle Cloud VPN

Site-to-Site VPN allows you to establish an encrypted IPSec connection (with two IPsec tunnels) from your on-premises data center to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, keeping your data secure while using your existing internet connections.

Key features
  • Static routing
  • BGP dynamic routing
  • Preshared keys
  • IKEv1 and IKEv2
  • Diffie-Hellman groups 1, 2, 5, 14, 19, 20
  • AES 256
  • SHA-2 256 and SHA-2 384
  • HMAC-SHA-196 and HMAC-SHA-256-128

Increasing application availability

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Flexible Load Balancing enables customers to distribute requests across a fleet of servers or automatically route traffic across availability domains, yielding highly available and fault-tolerant applications. The portfolio consists of two services—Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Flexible Load Balancer (OCI Load Balancer) and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Flexible Network Load Balancer (OCI Network Load Balancer).

Key Flexible Load Balancer features
  • Layer 4 (TCP) and layer 7 (HTTP) proxy load balancer
  • Guaranteed and flexible bandwidth (bursting)
  • SSL offload/termination
  • Cookie-based session persistence
  • Supports TLS 1.2
Key Flexible Network Load Balancer features

How to Launch a Virtual Cloud Network Using the Networking Quickstart Wizard and Connect to Your Autonomous Database

Can Tuzla, Senior Product Manager

A virtual cloud network (VCN) is a virtual, private network you set up in Oracle data centers. It is very similar to a traditional network with firewall rules and various gateways. When you work with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), setting up a VCN for your cloud resources is usually one of the first things that you might be doing.
