    Example of Terraform configuration for maximal compute resources on OCI's Free Tier

  • terraform-oci-free-compute-minimal-example

    Example of Terraform configuration for minimal compute resources on OCI's Free Tier

    I was first exposed to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure by having to spearhead my employer's tenancy there in addition to AWS and Azure. After realizing OCI offered a fairly generous amount of compute resources on its Free Tier, I decided to explore moving some of my own personal workloads there.

    As I ended up creating Terraform configurations for my experimentation, I decided to refine them and make them potentially useful for those who want to try running compute instances on OCI or want to see samples of Terraform configurations for OCI.

    The one I've submitted provisions the maximum amount of compute resources available on the Free Tier in terms of processing power, memory, and block storage along with managed volume backups.

    I've also created a similar configuration that provisions a "minimal" amount of resources in the form of a single compute instance: https://github.com/RhubarbSin/terraform-oci-free-compute-min...

    I hope someone may find these examples helpful and informative.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.
