Network as a Service (NaaS) provider Megaport has announced the availability of dedicated and private access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect, in London. This brings the total number of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure locations enabled via Megaport to four metros across North America and Europe and a total of 13 FastConnect locations, globally.
Megaport’s Software Defined Network (SDN) provides on-demand cloud connectivity that enables enterprise customers with dedicated and private access to Oracle’s IaaS and PaaS platforms. This would allow customers to enable connections that bypass the public Internet, and improve network performance and predictability while allowing the enterprise to address and comply with data privacy and regulatory requirements.
With the launch of Oracle’s new FastConnect services in London, customers would also get more options for how they connect to Oracle European cloud infrastructure from anywhere on Megaport’s global SDN.

Megaport Cloud Router’s Layer 3 routing capabilities would enable users to connect distributed workloads between regions quickly and move data between multi-region environments, for example, London and Frankfurt, without the need to hairpin traffic back through physical infrastructure. This would simplify connectivity and create a more efficient path for better performance and scalability while enabling multi-cloud connectivity capabilities.
Connectivity to Cloud Applications
Megaport stated that Oracle customers benefit from reliable network access to their cloud data and applications in London. This would mean improved performance, enhanced control, flexibility, and scalability that can provide access to critical business data and functions.
“Businesses are increasingly in need of direct connectivity to their cloud applications to support the increasing volume of mission-critical data produced by next-generation technologies,” said Vincent English, CEO of Megaport. “Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect is a powerful product which, when combined with Megaport’s Software Defined Network, allows customers around the world to build optimized cloud strategies. Our tight alignment with Oracle enables us to bring this service to market rapidly and provides greater access to Oracle’s integrated services and support for the deployment of critical workloads in this cloud-first era.”
