Getting ready to run SOA on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with Terraform by Robert Wunderlich


Oracle has a robust portfolio of cloud offerings ranging from SaaS to IaaS.  Some of the services like Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP), or Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) are fully managed by Oracle, lifting the burdens from DBAs and System Administrators.  These services run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) sometimes referred to as the “gen 2 cloud“.
