True public cloud means the elasticity of the cloud resources. The newest feature related to OCI DBSystem enhanced a few days back means exactly this, true database resource elasticity. I can imagine that in many cases your current DBSystem shape is too small or too large for the workload which is executed. In that case, it would be great to have some simple way to change CPU power by alternative VM shapes. That is why recently I was extremely excited about the dynamic option for DBSystem in case of virtual machine shape change. You know that for sure, I am a huge fan of automation, Infrastructure as Code approach and Terraform runtime. So I have checked immediately if we can find the corresponding change in the Terraform OCI Provider code. Guess what? Version 3.65.0 supports this new OCI feature. Below a short video shows how it was easy to use this new feature in brand new Terraform OCI Provider.
