Microsoft and Oracle to Interconnect Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud

Microsoft Corp. and Oracle Corp. on Wednesday announced a cloud interoperability partnership enabling customers to migrate and run mission-critical enterprise workloads across Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud. Enterprises can now seamlessly connect Azure services, like Analytics and AI, to Oracle Cloud services, like Autonomous Database. By enabling customers to run one part of a workload within Azure and another part of the same workload within the Oracle Cloud, the partnership delivers a highly optimized, best-of-both-clouds experience. Taken together, Azure and Oracle Cloud offer customers a one-stop shop for all the cloud services and applications they need to run their entire business.

Managing Autonomous Datawarehouse using oci-curl

oci-curl

oci-curl is a bash function provided in the documentation that makes it easy to get started with the REST APIs. You will need to complete a few setup operations before you can start calling it.
