Deploy on OCI using Ampere Compute Instances !

Yesterday, Oracle announced a new range of Arm compute instances based on Ampere’s ARM processors

This is a very nice announcement ![1], [2] and something also very cool is that you are eligible for an Always Free instance up to 4 OCPUs, 24GB of RAM and 4Gbps network bandwidth !!

This is the max you can have and you define it during the shape selection:

I have already updated all the Stacks I propose to support Flex Shapes and of course the Ampere ones:

When you select a Flex Shape you will be invited to also fill the OCPUs and Memory you want to deploy:

Enjoy deploying your application on OCI and for the database, no worry, relax and trust MDS !

If you don’t have yet an OCI account and would to receive $300 credits to use with MySQL Database Service:

  1. Hi

    I attempted this on the always free OCI tenancy – but failed at the point of the NAT gateway creation — Is this usable (or meant to be usable) with the free tier ?

    I don’t belief the NAT gateway is a free (available) construction under the always free tier.

    Interested in your reply — thanks

  2. Hi
    Thanks for the reply – this really deals with the terraform (stack job) this attempts to execute- it attempts to create NAT gateway
    But always free – doesn’t include that .
    Additionally even a MySQL DB cannot be created.
    Hence my question is this really – is for an always free after the 30 days free with $300 has elapsed?
