Cause: VM Standard 1.1 shape is Deprecated in Few Regions
When you fill up the Instance Details, you have to select the Compte Shape. If you will select the Shape as VM.Standard1.1 then your Database creation will get failed. In order to create the DB, you have to select the VM.Standard2.2 Shape.
The X5 (VM Standard 1.1 shape) is deprecated in few regions and was never available in UK-London-1.
To know more Please check (Doc ID 2443502.1)
Select the VM.Stanadard2.2 Shape at the time of Database creation steps.
The X7 (VM Standard 2.1 shape) is the new instance to use. The deprecated shapes are still shown in UI as the customers may still want to use this shape as long as it is available in some regions.
