Oracle and Microsoft announced a partnership in 2019 to connect Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Microsoft Azure with a secure, low-latency, and high-throughput network known as OCI-Azure Interconnect.
This partnership enables private connectivity between OCI and Azure, offering consistent network performance with around 2-millisecond latency.
OCI-Azure Interconnect allows for the establishment of a direct connection without the need for an intermediary network provider.
It enables customers to migrate to the cloud or build cloud-native applications using the strengths of both OCI and Azure
Users can set up single sign-on between Microsoft Azure and OCI for Oracle applications, streamlining authentication.
The private inter-cloud connection bypasses the public internet, enhancing security.
