Here are a few basic networking scenarios to help you understand the Networking service and generally how the components work together.
Advanced Scenarios with Transit Routing Through a Single VCN
The following advanced routing scenarios give your on-premises network additional access beyond the resources in the connected VCN. Traffic travels from your on-premises network to the VCN, and then transits through the VCN to its destination. See these topics:
- Transit Routing: Access to Multiple VCNs in the Same Region: Your on-premises network has access to multiple VCNs in the same region over a single FastConnect private virtual circuit or VPN Connect. The VCNs are in a hub-and-spoke topology, with the on-premises network connected to the VCN that acts as the hub. The spoke VCNs are peered with the hub VCN.
- Transit Routing: Private Access to Oracle Services: Your on-premises network has private access to Oracle services in the Oracle Services Network by way of the connected VCN and the VCN's service gateway . The traffic does not go over the internet.
Advanced Scenario with Multiple DRGs and Multiple VCNs
There's an extra advanced scenario that illustrates the use of multiple VCNs. In this case, each VCN has its own dynamic routing gateway (DRG) and its own FastConnect private virtual circuit . Contrast this with Transit Routing: Access to Multiple VCNs in the Same Region, in which there's a single DRG with either VPN Connect or a single FastConnect private virtual circuit.
Here are some restrictions for using the scenario that has multiple DRGs:
- The scenario works only with FastConnect through a third-party provider or through colocation with Oracle. It is not supported for FastConnect through an Oracle partner.
- The scenario is supported only for VCNs in the same region and same tenancy.
