I just want to spend a few articles on how easy you can get into the Oracle Cloud and get you a bit more familiar with the Cloud Services that you will find there.

Let’s start with signing up to the Oracle Cloud…

Navigate to https://cloud.oracle.com/trial and sign up for a free account.

When your request is processed, you will be provisioned a tenancy in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Oracle will send you a Welcome email with instructions for signing in to the Console for the first time. There is no charge unless you choose to Upgrade to Paid from My Services.
