    Just don't use/provision anything without knowing about it & it's pricing.

    After all it's cloud just like AWS or GCP. If you don't use any paid resources it's better not to upgrade PYG account.

    I actually wanna setup a vm in different region (from the free option only)... Will try that out. Thanks

    Always free available only in the home region. You can't use free compute instance or any other resources in a different region. You have to pay for that.

    Ohh. So even if I go to Pay-as-you-go plan, I cannot create instances in different regions?

    Bruh, you can create instances in different regions, but you will have to pay for them. How hard is it to understand?

    Also there is like a 85 euro hold when upgrading

    I just saw that its possible to change boot/block volume performance (they call it "VPU"). I tried to increase it to the max and instead of usual 1.5k IOPS I got 13.5k IOPS for 4K read/write! 1M sequential write jumped from ~25MB/s to ~100MB/s.

    The question is - are we, as free tier users allowed to use this without cost? I couldn't find any info about limits for free tier or maybe my Google is broken lol. For "normal users" this faster storage is more expensive. Anybody tried it for longer time?

    If you don't know where it is - go to your instance details, scroll down, choose "boot volume", click on name of your boot volume and then click blue "edit" button.

    Yabs after this tweak

    Total 187.94 MB/s (367) 188.15 MB/s (182)

    Will Oracle charge account for increasing IOPS (VPU) of Block storage?

    Have you successfully managed to increase VPU without incurring costs?

    I have maximum VPU on free tier from date that I posted that comment here.
    No charges.

    No charges either for two friends who also did it when I showed them method.

    In this thread there was someone who contacted support about it and support told him that if its available on free tier it means it is free for now.

    They likely have enough bandwidth and they don't care about it. It may change however and they could slow it down.

    how many oracle free vps can i have?

  • @letlover said:

    NO

  • martheenmartheen Member

    @letlover said:

    A maximum of four. Total storage is 200 GB while each VPS can't have storage smaller than 50 GB. This could be 2 x64 + 2 arm64, 4 arm 64, or 1 x64 + 3 arm 64.

  • Free tier only includes two block volumes, can't have more than two VPS while staying fully free

    I'm pretty sure this is false. I had 3 vps (1x 64, 2x ARM) for almost a year on free tier, each 50GB

    When you crate a VPS it's called boot volume

    I tried to register twice, both failed. All of my info is real. Seems it closes the free tier.

  • JabJabJabJab Member

    Yes, because they still want your personal data and they won't totally announce closing of free tier. The would just make it hard to register.

    Have you ever considered that they simply don't want you there and/or deemed you high risk? :D

    Oracle can shut down your free tier account anytime. Don't bother signing up, even for testing stuff, it's not worth it. Get a cheap $20 vps instead.

    Just got mine terminated after 2 days without citing any reason.

    All I did was install an nginx using "apt install nginx". Next day I get authorization error on my oracle account

    I didn’t have bad terms with Oracle.

  • For arm, I can have a total of 4 core and 24 gb? So I can have 4x (1 core, 6gb)?

    @dotcomUNDERGROUND said:

    Yes, you can divide 4c/24g to 2/3/4 VMs if you want.
    Keep in mind that minimum boot volume is 47GB and your limit for block storage is 200GB. So if you have 4 ARM instances then you have only 12GB block storage left - you cant create x86 instance (as it requires 47GB too).
    Boot volumes are calculated as block storage on Oracle Cloud.

    Thanks.

    So after 2 x86 instances I'll get 2x (2 core, 12gb) arm

    That’s maybe issue with your cards or something. Been using for 2 years and no problem so far :D

    no dmca issues with public torrents?

    Public, yes. It’s been going on since a few months now so I assume DMCA isn’t a thing for that location.
