In the past, I have written several posts about the interconnect between Oracle Cloud (OCI) and Microsoft Azure. Usually, this interconnect is used to host databases in OCI. However, Azure is used to run applications and other components. While it could be a good solution for some businesses, it had several drawbacks for companies who wanted to run Oracle databases in the cloud without having to manage multi-cloud environments. In a new PaaS-style approach to running databases in OCI and hiding much of the interconnect complexity from Azure users, Oracle has released Oracle Database Service for Azure (ODSA). In my post, I will take a brief look at this solution.
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.
Cloud Automation: Autoregistering Virtual Machines with Private DNS Zones in Oracle OCI using Serverless Functions
This post describes how to use cloud events and serverless in Oracle Cloud functions to keeping the records of a private DNS Zone up to date.
Just this week I published a Terraform module for setting up an OCI-Azure interconnect. This basically is the code I already provided earlier and described in a few of my older posts. What you will get The module will create a few resources on Azure and OCI to set up Read more…
Wouldn’t it be nice to have some low-code app built with APEX that integrates nicely with your Azure AD for authentication? Actually it is pretty easy to do so, i will show you the simple steps to get it done.
I will show how to establish routing that will let a client on Azure access an Autonomous Database (or in fact any other OCI Service) without leaving the Azure and OCI networks. This will increase performance, security and reliability of this connection.
The interconnect between Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud seems to be a hot topic lately. I often hear of the scenario to run an Oracle database on OCI and some applications on Azure, which is interesting to companies moving to the cloud. But one of the major concerns always seem Read more…
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.
