Oracle Expands OCI Always Free Services

Oracle has announced the addition of 13 more Always Free services to Oracle Cloud Free Tier, enabling developers and operators to learn, try out, and deploy workloads on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). The announcement was made in a blog post by Joby Menon, senior director product management, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Free Tier, OCI Development User Experience.

In September 2019, Oracle began offering Always Free services including Compute, Storage, and Autonomous Database.

The newest Always Free services include Ampere A1 Compute, Autonomous JSON Database, NoSQL, APEX Application Development, Logging, Service Connector Hub, Application Performance Monitoring (APM), flexible load balancer, flexible network load balancer, VPN Connect V2, Oracle Security Zones, Oracle Security Advisor, and OCI Bastion. 

“Our 13 new Always Free services complement the existing Always Free Compute virtual machines (VM), Object Storage, Block Storage, Load Balancing, Autonomous Data Warehouse, and Autonomous Transaction Processing service. For example, you can now deploy a low-code APEX app, build a WordPress website, or deploy a Minecraft server on OCI, all free of charge for an unlimited time. Our Always Free services can also help you learn about the primitives and capabilities of OCI that you can scale with a paid OCI account in the future. All OCI Always Free services and resources are available to you with an active Oracle Cloud account,” said Menon.
