Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect Overview
Oracle FastConnect allows you to create a private, direct connection to your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure environment without traversing the public internet. This means your connection is faster, more secure, and allows for a higher bandwidth.
Private vs. public virtual circuits
Each FastConnect connection is built as either a private or public virtual circuit.
- Most customers will use a private virtual circuit. This is a private connection to resources in your Oracle VCN (Virtual Cloud Network).
- A private virtual circuit requires an Oracle DRG (Dynamic Routing Gateway).
- Reach OCI public services while still bypassing the public internet.
- Public services include Object Storage, OCI Console and APIs, and public load balancers in your VCN.
PacketFabric has on-ramps in the following Oracle Cloud regions:
- US East (Ashburn)
- US West (Phoenix)
PacketFabric follows the standard Hosted cloud connectivity prices found here: Cloud Connectivity
Technical notes and specifications
- Available capacities
- 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, 5 Gbps, or 10 Gbps
(Oracle does not support connections under 1 Gbps)
- There is no inherent redundancy in a FastConnect virtual circuit. You can add redundancy by building a secondary connection across unique equipment to avoid having a single point of failure. For more information, see OCI Docs - FastConnect Redundancy Best Practices.
- Jumbo frame support
- Up to 9000 bytes
You must set up BGP between your on-premises router and the IBM XCR to reach your VPC.
- Oracle-side ASN
Public: You can use the PacketFabric public ASN
4556or a public ASN owned by you.
Private: Select a private ASN from
65534is reserved for OCI use.
- IP subnet ranges
- Specify a
/31range. One pair per virtual circuit.
- Prefix limit
- Public virtual circuits: 200 prefixes.
Private virtual circuits: 2000 prefixes.
- Not supported.
- Keep-alive interval
- 60 seconds
- Hold-time interval
- 180 seconds
