Oracle and Microsoft have built a dedicated, high-throughput, low-latency, private network connection between Azure and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure data centers. Customers can use the connection to securely transfer data at a high enough rate for offline handoffs and to support the performance required for primary applications that span the two clouds. Customers can access the connection by using either Oracle FastConnect or Microsoft ExpressRoute, and they don’t need to deal with configuration details or third-party carriers.
This dedicated virtual circuit also enables you to deploy Kubernetes clusters that span Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Microsoft Azure. I’ve created a step-by-step guide for deploying a cross-cloud, GPU-enabled Kubernetes cluster running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Microsoft Azure using the interconnect. Although the guide walks through deploying a GPU-enabled Kubernetes cluster, you can deploy any workload depending on your needs.
You can find the step-by-step instructions in this repository.
