Megaport has announced the expanded availability of Oracle FastConnect onramps to allow customers to interconnect to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure easily and flexibly. Megaport now offers direct connectivity to Oracle Cloud regions across four continents. Recently enabled FastConnect locations enabled across the Megaport network include Chicago, Los Angeles,​ London, Melbourne, Zurich, Osaka, and San Jose.

There are now 17 FastConnect onramps enabled via Megaport, providing greater choice for how businesses architect their cloud for performance, availability, and in-country data sovereignty requirements.

Customers connecting to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure through Megaport can also take advantage of Megaport Cloud Router (MCR), a virtual routing service.  MCR removes complexity by allowing customers to connect and route traffic without the need for physical routers and supports Oracle’s fast enablement of new cloud regions by providing rapid, reliable connectivity to the applications and platforms that power businesses every day. 

MCR also allows customers to build cloud to cloud connections in a point and click manner and in real time. This means more organisations can take advantage of multi-cloud architectures. With Megaport, organisations have the choice of connecting their services and applications from 15 Oracle Cloud regions to 30+ Azure Cloud regions and 16+ AWS regions. This extended reach taps into the multi-cloud strategy many enterprises prefer as they increase cloud adoption. 

Benefits of accessing Oracle Cloud Infrastructure on Megaport:

  • Agility: On-demand, reliable connectivity to the applications and services that power businesses.
  • Performance: Reduce jitter and decrease latency by localising traffic over a predictable, private network.
  • Reach: Access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure from 700+ data centres globally.
  • Compliance: Keep data local on a private network to meet in-country data sovereignty and compliance requirements.
  • Reduced cost: Pay as you go with flexible bandwidth speeds.
  • Ease-of-use: Point and click provisioning for multi-cloud and hybrid connectivity.

“Network latency and jitter play an important role in application performance,” said Matt Simpson, VP of Cloud Services at Megaport. “To ensure peak performance, applications -- whether on-premises or in the cloud - should be as close to your infrastructure as possible. Connecting to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure on Megaport allows businesses to localise traffic and optimise their connectivity for performance. Plus, with our API-based integrations with Oracle, customers can get connected in a matter of minutes.”

“Megaport’s SDN gives customers the performance, speed, and control to do smart business in the cloud,” added Ross Brown, Vice President, Marketing, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “. With Megaport, our customers now have another option to connect seamlessly with a multi-cloud strategy.”
