You might run your cloud workloads on Oracle Cloud and one or more other cloud providers for various business and technical reasons. Cross-cloud workloads need a secure, low-latency interconnection between Oracle Cloud and the other cloud providers.
About Multicloud Deployments
A multicloud deployment uses public cloud services from more than one cloud provider.
- Oracle E-Business Suite running on Oracle Cloud, with datasets replicated to Microsoft Azure Data Lake, for analytics.
- .NET applications deployed on Microsoft Azure using a database running on Oracle Cloud.
Note that the term multicloud in this solution refers to multiple public clouds. An environment that spans private and public clouds is considered a hybrid cloud deployment.
This architecture shows an application running in a third-party cloud connected to a database in Oracle Cloud.
- To administer and maintain the resources in the cloud, you need private access to both the clouds.
- You can set up a private connection from your data center to Oracle Cloud by using either Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect virtual circuits or IPSec VPN connections. FastConnect provides a dedicated connection that bypasses the public internet. IPSec VPN connections are secure tunnels through the public internet.
- To administer the resources in the other cloud providers, you need similar private access.
- As shown in the architecture, a key requirement for a multicloud topology is a secure, low-latency connection between the cloud providers.
The method that you use to interconnect the third-party cloud with Oracle Cloud depends on your security constraints, latency requirements, and budget.
