Private Endpoints for OCI Autonomous Database

Pic. Topology Diagram for Private Endpoint for ATP

It is not the first blog post about ATP, but I think this one is even more interesting. For your information, a few days back at OCI Release Notes webpage I have found information about new features for OCI Autonomous DB offering. I am talking about Private Endpoints for ATP or ADW databases. This feature has been awaited for a very long time. Previously your ATP or ADW databases were available only via public IPs. Now you can nest them inside a particular VCN and subnet. It means your database will be available under private IP enclosed in your subnet’s CIDR. Of course, you need to prepare some Network Security Groups (NSG) on ATP/ADW level and VM level. Since that moment VM can connect to ATP/ADW with SQLNet connection via private IP. For testing purposes I have created small GitHub repo and below you can find a video about how to use that repo. I believe you will find this dish very delicious. 🙂

Bon Appetit,

OCI File Storage Service + Network Security Groups (NSG) with Terraform

What is the topic for today? Network security of your OCI cloud infrastructure! Honestly speaking always an important topic, right? The basics of Network Security Groups (NSG), for the first time I have described in this blog post. Recently I have found in OCI Release Notes, that OCI File Storage Services supports now NSG. Immediately I have checked Terraform OCI Provider, just to confirm my favorite automation runtime also supports it. And guess what? Terraform OCI Provider in version 3.55.0 fully covers this feature. That is really amazing! Just one week later, after OCI release, Terraform Provider codebase has been updated! That is why I have decided to test it and add this stuff to my Terraform+OCI tutorial as a lesson 5a. I hope you will find it interesting! If it is true I really encourage you to subscribe to our YouTube Channel 🙂 One more thing – File Storage Service UDP and TCP ports for NSGs and Security Lists have been documented here.

Bon Appetit,
