Teaching How to Provision Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) with Cloud Stack and Terraform

We have covered multiple blogs on how to use Terraform to help automate the provisioning of environments and treat your Infrastructure as Code. Until now, for PaaS stacks, we have used Terraform together with Oracle PaaS Service Manager (PSM) CLI. This gives us great flexibility to script our own tailored PaaS stacks the way we … Continue reading “Teaching How to Provision Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) with Cloud Stack and Terraform”

Teaching How to use Terraform to automate Provisioning of Oracle API Platform

Previously, I showed how to use Terraform and PSM CLI to spin up a “Build Server” and use it to provision Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) environments. You can find this blog here. In this blog I am going to show you how to do the same, but to provision Oracle API Platform environments. The approach … Continue reading “Teaching How to use Terraform to automate Provisioning of Oracle API Platform”

Teaching How to use Terraform to automate Provisioning of Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC)

In a previous blog, I explained how to treat your Infrastructure as Code by using technologies such as Vagrant and Terraform in order to help automate provisioning and decommissioning of environments in the cloud. Then, I evolved those concepts with this other blog, where I explained how to use Oracle PaaS Service Manager (PSM) CLI … Continue reading “Teaching How to use Terraform to automate Provisioning of Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC)”

Teaching How to use Terraform to Manage Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as Code

Infrastructure as Code is becoming very popular. It allows you to describe a complete blueprint of a datacentre using a high-level configuration syntax, that can be versioned and script-automated. This brings huge improvements in the efficiency and reliability of provisioning and retiring environments. Terraform is a tool that helps automate such environment provisioning. It lets … Continue reading “Teaching How to use Terraform to Manage Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as Code”

An automated approach to provisioning the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes

I was reflecting recently on how IT tools and productivity aids often allow us to make a mess real quickly. There is often some underlying basics that need to be considered before using the productivity tool in order to get a sustainable outcome. As the old adage goes … A fool with a tool is … Continue reading “An automated approach to provisioning the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes”

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure OCI Gen-2 Cloud Security – Part II (Identity and Access Management)

In my previous blog post Oracle Cloud Infrastructure OCI Gen-2 Cloud Security – Part I , I have discussed the seven pillars of information security upon which Oracle Cloud Infrastructure OCI (Oracle Gen-2 Cloud) is built. The cloud shared security and responsibility model was discussed along with the concepts such as Regions, Availability Domains and … Continue reading “Oracle Cloud Infrastructure OCI Gen-2 Cloud Security – Part II (Identity and Access Management)”

Teaching How to Get Started with Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE)

In a previous blog, I explained how to provision a Kubernetes cluster locally on your laptop (either as a single node with minikube or a multi-node using VirtualBox), as well as remotely in the Oracle Public Cloud IaaS. In this blog, I am going to show you how to get started with Oracle Container Engine … Continue reading “Teaching How to Get Started with Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE)”

Teaching How to Provision Oracle Autonomous API Platform and API Gateway

Oracle is adding a secret recipe to all their Cloud Services with a nice touch of Machine Learning. This makes it possible to have the new series of “Autonomous” Cloud Services that are self-driving, self-healing and self-securing. Stay tuned, because we are going to keep listening a lot about them. In this blog I am … Continue reading “Teaching How to Provision Oracle Autonomous API Platform and API Gateway”

Teaching How to Get Started with Oracle Visual Builder 2.0

In this blog, I am going to show you how quickly you can use data in an existing Excel spreadsheet with multiple tabs and use it to auto-generate API-based microservices using Oracle Visual Builder. Then, we are going to consume our own generated APIs via a rich set of HTML5 components. For demonstration purposes, I … Continue reading “Teaching How to Get Started with Oracle Visual Builder 2.0”

Teaching How to Get started with Kubernetes deploying a Hello World App

In a previous blog, I explained how to provision a new Kubernetes environment locally on physical or virtual machines, as well as remotely in the Oracle Public Cloud. In this workshop, I am going to show how to get started by deploying and running a Hello World NodeJS application into it. There are a few … Continue reading “Teaching How to Get started with Kubernetes deploying a Hello World App”
