Each and every cloud vendor is trying to attract consumers by giving flexible services with flexible prices without disrupting security requirements. Within Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) we can expect the same approach. Flexibility is a fundamental principle of OCI design. Within this self-study course, I will try to walk through all of the commonly used OCI services to review their flexible features. (…)

Terraform is a well-known technology that implements in practice Infrastructure as a Code paradigm. Since the early days of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), a Terraform tool has been used to automatically deploy cloud topologies. In this zero to hero self-study course, you will learn how to build OCI infrastructures automatically, with the usage of the Terraform platform. (…)

In this short self-study online training, I will show how to deploy OCI Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) instance with the usage of Terraform automation. After successful deployment, you easily clone ATP instance directly or via backup. This will be a topic for the second lesson. The last lesson in the first part of the course will cover the Private Endpoint feature of OCI Autonomous Database. (…)

In this mini-training, I am trying to explain how to use OCI Resource Manager inside your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) tenancy.

Behind the scene, OCI Resource Manager uses Terraform technology. That means you can install, configure, and manage OCI resources through the “infrastructure-as-code” model. (…)
