Track and React to Cloud Native Events

Mohamed Sleem
Senior Manager, Product Management

We're pleased to announce the Limited Availability release of the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Events service.

This service is a fully managed event-routing platform that simplifies the creation of event-driven cloud native applications and serverless workflows. Rather than continuously polling for changes in your cloud infrastructure, you can use Events to subscribe to the events that you care about, and then automatically react to them in near real time by using functions, triggering notifications, or writing to streams for later analysis.

Open Source

As part of our commitment to open compatibility and putting customers first, the Events service implements the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s (CNCF) CloudEvents open source standard. CloudEvents describes event data in a common, consistent, and accessible way across cloud native applications. Using CloudEvents enables you to seamlessly interoperate with other compatible cloud providers, and with the rest of the CNCF serverless ecosystem.

Robust Event-Routing Platform

Events offers the following features:

  • Integration with Oracle FunctionsOracle Streaming, and Oracle Notifications, which provides you with a powerful reactive programming model for staying informed about your cloud environment.
  • Security with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management (IAM), which lets you control who can access your events and their actions.
  • Diverse suite of out-the-box event types. For Limited Availability, Events supports all API call events from all your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure resources (Create, Update, Delete via Audit), as well as scenario-specific events from Object Storage and Autonomous Database (such as Database Backup Complete).
  • Available through the Console, API, or CLI.

Common Use Cases

Following are some common actions that Events can perform:

  • Trigger a function when new files are uploaded in an Object Storage bucket.
  • Publish a notification when long-lived tasks complete, such as Autonomous Database backup completion.
  • Archive all events in a specific compartment to a stream for later analysis.
  • Publish a notification when a new resource is created or deleted in a compartment.

Getting Started

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Events will be generally available later in 2019, but we are currently providing access to selected customers through our Cloud Native Limited Availability Program. To learn more about Events or to request access, register at oracle.com/cloud-native/.
