Prior to Oracle OpenWorld 2017, we updated our automation for Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic, and in addition released new automation for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Since then, there have also been a number of important changes to the terminology used. This article provides a summary of the new and original terms you can refer to when you want to know what's what.

Oracle Cloud Service Names

The following table provides a list of the new and original service names that are relevant to Oracle E-Business Suite customers.

You will see that the key new term is "Oracle Cloud Infrastructure", supplemented where applicable by "Classic" to reflect an older service that is still available under a new name.

New and Original Cloud Service Names
New Name Original Name
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Service
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Compute
