This post covers one of the component of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) which is Compute. This the post is for beginners as Well for Professionals who are just starting to Learn Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Note: OCI is offering a form of IaaS Service model (other 2 Cloud Service models are SaaS & PaaS), where OCI is re-branding of Bare Metal Cloud Service (BMCS).
This Video is from our OCI Training in which Oracle ACE Atul Kumar has covered one of the services of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure which is Compute.
Overview of the Compute Service
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute lets you provision and manages compute hosts, known as instances. You can launch instances as needed to meet your compute and application requirements. After you launch an instance, you can access it securely from your computer, restart it, attach and detach volumes, and terminate it when you’re done with it. Any changes made to the instance’s local drives are lost when you terminate it. Any saved changes to volumes attached to the instance are retained.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers both Bare Metal and Virtual Machine instances:
- Bare Metal – A bare metal computes instance gives you dedicated physical server access for highest performance and strong isolation.
- Virtual Machine – A Virtual Machine (VM) is an independent computing environment that runs on top of physical bare-metal hardware. The virtualization makes it possible to run multiple VMs that are isolated from each other. VMs are ideal for running applications that do not require the performance and resources (CPU, memory, network bandwidth, storage) of an entire physical machine.
An Oracle Cloud Infrastructure VM compute instance runs on the same hardware as a Bare Metal instance, leveraging the same cloud-optimized hardware, firmware, software stack, and networking infrastructure.
Computes Shapes Available on OCI
Compute is nothing but a Combination of CPU + Memory + Local Storage which you choose while launching/creating your instance.
