Enterprises are increasingly seeking alternatives to using the public Internet for connecting their network with cloud services. Specifically, they’re seeking an easy, elastic and economical way to create a dedicated and private connection with higher bandwidth options, as well as a more reliable and consistent networking experience when compared to internet-based connections.

Just recently, EdgeConneX®, which is a Gold level member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), announced it will offer dedicated and private access to Oracle Cloud through Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect. By collaborating with EdgeConneX, Oracle customers will be able to take advantage of reliable network access to their cloud data and applications from across the U.S. The result is improved performance and enhanced control as well as flexibility and scalability that can provide access to business-critical data and functions.

“Enabling and collaborating with the world’s leading service providers is one of the ways EdgeConneX ensures customers always receive the best possible service quality and value,” commented Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing Officer at EdgeConneX.  “Providing Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect from our Edge Data Centers enables enterprises to easily access the complete range of Oracle Cloud services via a high-performance private cloud on-ramp.”

Available via Megaport from Edge Data Centers® (EDCs) in Boston, Portland, Santa Clara, San Diego, Houston, and Phoenix, with several additional locations coming later this year, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect will enable EdgeConneX customers to have rapid, direct access to Oracle’s industry-leading cloud platform with consistent performance, network isolation, and greater availability than possible through the public Internet.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect provides enterprise cloud connectivity to Oracle Cloud from reliable enterprise data centers. Enabling a fast, private connection to the industry’s broadest and most integrated cloud platform, connecting directly to the Oracle Cloud through Oracle FastConnect delivers a complete range of services, including Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

“Customers require seamless connectivity from their data centers and networks to Oracle Cloud for their most demanding workloads and applications,” stated Kash Iftikhar, vice president of product development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “With the FastConnect Service, customers can provision the dedicated and private connections they need today and easily scale with their growing business demands.”
