Oracle Cloud Infrastructure , as its name suggests provides you a full infrastructure to run your application. It is a set of cloud services that supports you to build and run an extensive range of services and applications with high availability , scalability and high performance.

It provides you high performance of compute and storage capability with flexible virtual network which is securely accessible from your on premise network.

And in forthcoming articles we are going to discuss each and every component of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure whether it be compute , storage , network etc.

Lets first see what are the main components which builds the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure :

Being a DBA , we are familier that to build any infrastructure which runs our application we need following things :

1.Physical Server with compute power, memory and storage.
2.Network to communicate between servers and end users

Oracle Cloud Infrasture provides this. However , the setup is different. OCI is extra mile ahead of this traditional setup.

It includes following components.

Compute : There are different types of compute available , Bare Metal , Virtual Machine (Multi Tenant Option) and Dedicated VM hosts (Single Tenant).

Storage : There are different types of storage options available like Block Volumes , File Storage , Object Storage etc. You can choose this options based on the nature of data.

Network : You can create virtual cloud network , which is private to your tenancy.

Load Balancer : Load balancer helps you route your request to healthy and available server and balances load between your servers.

IAM : It is an identity access management in OCI. You can manage identity of each and every user that manages or uses your OCI.

Data Safe : With data safe you can do user activity assessment , user assessment and security assessment etc. It saves your time and mitigates security risks.

Billing :It is important part of your OCI. There are different options available to check cost , compartment wise , tag wise , date wise etc. You can even set budget alerts when it reaches specific threshold.

And there is lot more in Oracle cloud infrastructure. We will discuss each topic in depth in next posts.
