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:
We are ready to login to My Services Administration dashboard, we use Identity Domain and My Services URL found in the welcome email:
(in my case it is under EMEA Data Jurisdiction and within EMEA Data Center):
Note: You must create an instance of Oracle Integration Cloud Service in My Services.
Note: The Service Instance URL is used by the end-users in your organisation to sign in to Standard Developer Service.
Enjoy your 30 days free Oracle Cloud Subscription plan. In next articles we will take a closer look at particular services. We will get started with Oracle Database Cloud Service , stay tuned!
