The Internet2 Cloud Connect (I2CC) service recently added two 100 Gbps connections to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) via Oracle FastConnect in San Jose, California.

San Jose is now the third location where I2CC offers OCI connectivity, in addition to Ashburn, Virginia, and Dallas, Texas. Those connections tie to OCI’s U.S. West (San Jose), U.S. East (Ashburn), and U.S. West (Phoenix) regions, respectively.

I2CC is available to R&E institutions connected to the Internet2 network. The service enables those institutions to use a combination of the Internet2 infrastructure along with their regional or state network infrastructure to obtain up to 5 Gbps of private Layer 2 and Layer 3 access at no additional fee from Internet2.
