OCI Networking offers performance for up to 90% less


1. Experience the performance of on-premises networks in the cloud

OCI Networking brings on-premises capabilities to the cloud, including high bandwidth, low latency, low jitter, and the consistent throughput that enterprise workloads require.

2. Serve data from the cloud for up to 90% less

OCI public data egress rates are significantly lower than other cloud service providers and include 10 TB per month for free. OCI-dedicated FastConnect doesn’t charge for data transmission; it only requires a low, per-hour port charge.

3. Access supercomputing for AI or HPC with far less effort

Run distributed AI and HPC workloads on super large clusters with over 32,000 GPUs on a dedicated, non-blocking network running RDMA over converged ethernet. Leverage networking speeds up to 3.2 Tb/sec with clusters up to 16,000 GPUs.
