Expanded DRG functionality

  • Services: Networking
  • Release Date: April 15, 2021

DRG functionality has been expanded to include the following capabilities:

  • You can attach a DRG to more than one VCN to provide inter-VCN network connectivity. VCNs can be in the same or different tenancies. 
  • You can now assign a different route table and policy to each network resource attached to your DRG enabling granular routing control.  For instance, by connecting all your VCNs and on-premises networks to a single DRG used as a “Hub,” you have a single central gateway to configure traffic routing and Layer 3 isolation.  One possible use case of routing policy is directing all traffic passing thru the DRG to a network virtual appliance or firewall.
  • Your on-premises network connected to a DRG in one region can access networks connected to a DRG in a different region using a remote peering connection (RPC).
  • You can now enable equal cost multi-path (ECMP) routing towards your IPSec VPN and FastConnect connections to support active-active scenarios. ECMP is controlled on a per route table basis.
  • Remote peering connections can now connect DRGs in the same region or different tenancies.

This capability is available in the US West (San Jose) and Canada Southeast (Montreal) regions only. See Dynamic Routing Gateways (DRGs) for more information.
