Access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic

There are two ways to set up a connection between an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic IP network and an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure virtual cloud network (VCN):

  • Option 1: Connection over the Oracle network

    • You file a ticket with My Oracle Support and Oracle provisions a connection between the IP network's private gateway and the VCN's attached dynamic routing gateway (DRG). The connection runs over Oracle's network and not the internet.
    • The two environments must be in the same geographical area (Ashburn or London), and the connection is available only between these specific regions:

      • Between Oracle Cloud Infrastructure us-ashburn-1 region and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic uscom-east-1 region
      • Between Oracle Cloud Infrastructure uk-london-1 region and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic gbcom-south-1 region
    • The two environments must belong to the same company. Oracle validates this when setting up the connection.
  • Option 2: Connection over an IPSec VPN

    • You set up an IPSec VPN between the IP network's VPN as a Service (VPNaaS) gateway and the VCN's attached DRG. The connection runs over the internet.
    • The two environments do not have to be in the same geographical area or regions.
    • The two environments do not have to belong to the same company.
