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.
Extend your on-premises environment to Oracle Cloud by choosing one or more than 50 Fast Connect partners representing the top carrier and network providers globally, and get responsive access for your cloud-based workloads.
Connect to Oracle Cloud using a FastConnect partner, a third-party provider, or from within a colocation environment.
Upgrade and downgrade port speed based on your business needs and data transfer profile at the moment, and change it as requirements shift.
FastConnect provides a predetermined path for data movement, avoiding collisions, packet ordering, and security and latency issues inherent with data transfer over the public internet.
Leverage the industry-standard Border Gateway Protocol for routing to manage the exchange of routes between Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and your network.
Using our virtual cloud network capabilities, FastConnect flows data traffic strictly over defined, trusted endpoints across your OCI tenancy and your private network.
Save as much as 80% compared to alternative cloud providers and take advantage of Oracle Cloud’s leading economics in network egress and networking costs.
Customers will not find surprises in their bills based on data moving over FastConnect lines because pricing is based on a flat rate (per port speed chosen) with zero data transfer charge. As a result, costs remain low and predictable. Billing based upon time in use and carrier costs is billed directly by the carrier partner.
Pricing for the Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure Interconnect is based solely on the capacity of the ports provisioned on OCI FastConnect and Azure ExpressRoute Local Circuit. There are no additional charges for inbound or outbound bandwidth consumed.
Oracle has more than 50 FastConnect partners with pre-established connections across our global regions ready for use right now.
Direct connection between the customer and Oracle when customers haves a presence in the Oracle region location.
If you have a preferred carrier that is not currently a member of the FastConnect service program, we can offer direct connection between the customer’s preferred network provider and Oracle using a dedicated circuit.
Different workloads have different needs. Choose between FastConnect private or public peering options—or use both—to fit your requirements.
Customers configure and change circuits via our easy-to-use and intuitive console interface, or programmatically via API to enable automation.
With FastConnect, customers have the tooling to easily create redundant connections required for critical applications and workloads quickly.
When connecting via FastConnect partners, virtual circuits can be provisioned within minutes where there is an existing relationship in place.
Extend your on-premises environment to Oracle Cloud by choosing one of more than 50 Fast Connect partners representing the top carrier and network providers globally, ensuring customers responsive access for their cloud-based workloads.
Applications with relational database back-ends are especially vulnerable to latency and require predictable performance. Oracle FastConnect ensures consistent network performance and low latency.
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.
FastConnect isolates sensitive data traffic and improves security and privacy because data traffic flows strictly over trusted endpoints.
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.
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.
