    @Bonsai99 are you sure Montreal is your "Home region"? Check what it says in the drop-down on the top-right. Or maybe they rearranged regions somehow, and you now get a quota somewhere else. Also see the "Manage regions" page.

    Yep, I'm not subscribed to any other regions.

    Seems like that region doesn't have a free quota for some reason. They do state that free stuff is limited to some regions only.

  • finally I can signed up for this free tier lol. Anyone care to share the uptime and any precautions? As i'm only using this for my bouncer lol.

    Sir even a bouncer is mission critical, to risky.

    All what has to be said, has been written down.
    There is no need of such what you call /s tag.

    Using VMs in Tokyo region. Haven't experienced a downtime. With its 10 TB data transfer, it's definitely much better than Google's one.

    As you can't control rDNS and there's no IPv6, people are going to point and laugh at you on IRC, for showing up with a mere IP instead of a cool DNS record, and even just an IPv4 at that.

    It's free, good ddos protection, stable network, it's like it was made for IRC. xD

    They fuck up from time to time. The first two servers I made were lost completely, despite sending an email days later saying they recovered them (they didn't). Another time, they emailed an internal memo (that wasn't meant for public viewing) that they're running out of space and need to free up some.

    Network is limited to 48Mbps. Disk speed is limited to 50MB/s.

    Using console requires setting up ssh proxy that changes (so it's a bit more hassle).

    Average load times have been as high as 60 at times, but recently I don't recall it being crazy.

    I wouldn't even put our company website on it, that gets like 10 viewers a month.

    Didn't put pihole on it because latency is too high for across the country for a DNS server.

    For a long time, I put them on par with Cloud at Cost. (Legendary fuckups).

    I get the impression they are getting better, but they either rushed to get out this free tier or they don't even have their "B team" working on it. But they're improving.

  • @TimboJones said: Network is limited to 48Mbps.

    I think they mentioned 480Mbps on their page. But I guess it says "Up to" lmao

  • Network is limited to 50 mbps in the free tier in Mumbai DC

  • 30mbit unmetered in Mumbai. That's what 10TB represents. 💯

    how long oracle cloud will be activated?

    but my account until now Not activated, since two week ago.

    Is your account active now?

    I have 2 VPSes with them. Work perfectly. I wish I could choose 1 VPS with 4 cores and 100 GB HDD than 2 with 2 cores 50 GB HDD each.

    You do get 480 Mbit between your two VPSes in the same DC. But the Internet is capped to about 40-50 Mbit, both in and out.

    I think it's described as ⅛ OCPU?

    You can certainly allocate 100GB disk, but then you can only have one VM instead of two.

  • My one instance running Bitwarden has an uptime of 350 days right now (security updates say what?) currently. So guess that's pretty prevalent. So far only one hiccup with networking in Zurch (and other regions) for around 1/4 of the day. But my setup is HA so was able to use fallback for time being.

    Still, free.99 is free.99 so I can't complain.

    Pretty pathetic considering they're the 3rd or 4th largest software company in the world.

    The reality is that all of Oracle Cloud was rushed and they've been playing catch-up since day one. As a company, they completely and doggedly resisted cloud computing until they started losing sales, then they jumped in very late. Every year, Larry Ellison makes a big keynote speech and it was funny to watch him snark about how stupid cloud computing was one year and then two years later announce how groundbreaking (not really) Oracle Cloud was.

    I think they're 5th or 6th atm...it really depends how you count. Clearly, AWS is #1 and Azure is close behind, Google is #3, and then after that probably IBM just based on legacy business, and then maybe Oracle. But of course, there's also SalesForce in there if you could pure SaaS, SAP, etc.

    Managed to deploy in Frankfurt yesterday. CPU steal is constantly between 5%-15%.

    Once you work out how to open the ports and use the control panel its great for free

  • Anyone know when Oracle will open a data center in China? Until then what's their best location for bandwidth into China? South Korea or India?

    They have a datacentre in Mumbai, India.

    The default firewall is very strict. I'm going to write a tutorial on this.

    HostLoc MJJ says South Korea has good connectivity to China.

    I picked Tokyo. It has good connectivity within Japan and to USA. Traffic to Europe and China would both go through USA.

  • Until then what's their best location for bandwidth into China? South Korea or India?

    Try these for Test IPs:
    India 140.238.246.254
    Japan 132.145.120.1
    Korea 132.145.90.145

    Japan seems single-homed to NTT, I think it will be bad for China (going via USA). And India is unlikely to be good (could be going around the world entirely).

    Tag me when you finish it, please. I'm having a lot of issues wrapping my head around it.

    How? You open a port that you need... there's almost always a default SSH rule to use as reference to copy or just edit and add the additional ports...
