How to get 30 days Free Oracle Cloud Subscription Plan PaaS IaaS

Oracle now offers the Free Oracle Cloud Promotion plan. With this promotion, we start with $300 (€260) Cloud Service credits in your Oracle Cloud Services Account. This balance can be used towards activating and using any of the metered Oracle Cloud Services in the following categories: PaaS, IaaS, Big Data and Middleware Cloud Services, which are available as Pay-as-You-Go subscriptions.

Previously we were playing with free trial subscription of Oracle Database Schema Cloud Service. This tutorial however is different! We are going to try a 30 days free subscription plan, which includes all we need to get started with Oracle Cloud: Compute, Storage, Database, Database Backup, MySQL, Java, SOA, Application Container Cloud and Developer Cloud Services.

Let’s get started! We sign up for a trial subscription to Oracle Public Cloud Services:

We make sure that we select correct country as we would have to provide a valid mobile number for verification purposes, the country code is selected automatically based upon our country selection.

Shortly after completing sign-up procedure, we’ll receive a confirmation email from Oracle titled:

Oracle Store Account creation confirmation – [First, Last Name]

We are not ready yet! We must wait for another email which will state:

Welcome to Oracle Cloud. Your Oracle Public Cloud Services Free Promotion is ready.

It might take a while though. I’ve received mine next day. At this moment our Oracle Account has already been granted free credits.

In the final confirmation email we can find information about access credentials and URLs to all the services such as:

  • My Services Administration access to manage your cloud services as well as to monitor usage and status.
  • My Account Administration to add additional account admins or review our order.

We are ready to login to My Services Administration dashboard, we use Identity Domain and My Services URL found in the welcome email:
