In my previous blog posts, I have discussed the generic security concepts and Identity and Access Management in OCI. This part of the series discusses OCI Networking Service. Its concepts and best practices for securing networks in OCI.
High-throughput and reliable networking is fundamental to public-cloud infrastructure that delivers compute and storage services at scale. As a result, Oracle has invested significant innovation in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure networking to support requirements of enterprise customers and their workloads. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regions have been built with a state-of-the-art, non-blocking Clos network that is not over-subscribed and provides customers with a predictable, high-bandwidth, low latency network. The data centers in a region are networked to be highly available and have low-latency connectivity between them.
In this post, I will go into depth on the components that make up the networking layer, and the security rules which can be applied to them.
