What you will learn

This course is going to walk you through some of the standard day-to-day types of activities that you might find yourself managing in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure ecosystem.

Kick things off with a dive into the automation components, OCI CLI, Terraform and Resource Manager, and Ansible. Next we deal with a few operational tasks associated to custom images, data retention, and security best practices.

At the end of the day, it is critical for the environment to expand with the needs of the application or the customer requirements and at the same time manage costs. Learn to plan your scaling operations, and setup alerting, proper cost management of our environment and troubleshoot any issues encountered.
