Fault resilence of Regional Subnets

Regional subnets are relatively new to OCI - are they protected against failure from broadcast storms?


I'm embarking on a new PaaS/IaaS platfrom design which has to include full DR - whether this is between ADs in a region, or across regions, is still to be decided.

Regional subnets have been available in OCI for a year or so, and Oracle seems to be recommending their use (and has made them the default when creating subnet in the console).

A regional subnet appears to be stretching a layer 2 network across data centres. The debate about the use of stretched subnets has raged for some years with on-prem systems - I think it's fair to say that the network teams at the largest sites have avaoided their use, except for specific subnets where the application or appliance couldn't manage without them.

Howdy, Stranger!
