    @TimboJones said: 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.

    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.

    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).

    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...

    stop talking about other things and start getting on topic. Im still banned.

    As I'm sure you should be. Lay off the crack.

    The Linux images on the Oracle instances have iptables enabled, and you'll have to modify them in order to open ports. This is in addition to opening ingress through the Networking section of the web interface.

    I tried UFW multiple times, but it didn't work.
    For iptables, I used this video.

    Do I have the opportunity to change the location from Amsterdam TO Frankfurt if we're talking about the free tier? If someone has a Frankfurt LG, please let me know :)

    Once your home region is selected it cannot be changed.
