Patching Compute Instance Fleets with Oracle Cloud (OCI) OS Management

An annoying thing when you cannot have immutable infrastructure is that you need to patch and update your compute instances from time to time. In the worst case this needs to be done manually, a painful and error-prone process. Of course there are tools to do that in a more sensible way, one of them being the OS Management tooling that is available for free in Oracle Cloud. This post shows how to do so using OCI CLI.

Oracle Cloud (OCI) to Microsoft Azure Interconnect

Oracle and Microsoft announced a few weeks ago that their cloud offerings Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Microsofts Azure will have a stronger interconnection, thus making multi-cloud setups for enterprises a tad easier.

There are guides for both Oracle Cloud (OCI) and Microsoft Azure that show the setup of an interconnection in a more or less detailed way, still each focuses on just one part of the setup. Since i still missed a more integrated description of how to get OCI and Azure interconnected, i decided to create the required configurations for terraform and write down an explanation of the required steps.
