This note updates my last article @ Free Trials of Oracle Analytics on Laptops and on Cloud.
New for 2018 is the arrival of greatly increased free trial capacity for OAC. The “burn rate” on all Oracle “free trial” PaaS and IaaS cloud services has been reduced, with for example, OAC trials at $0.10 per hour giving our customers and partners a month of Analytics and Big Data cloud service access to trial these services.
“Free Oracle Cloud Promotion”
The Free Oracle Cloud Promotion allows you to sign up for a 30-day free Oracle Cloud account and receive $300 in free credits to get started. During the promotion period, you will be able to try out all eligible IaaS and PaaS services. Your promotion is active until your Free Oracle Cloud Promotion credits are spent or the promotion period of 30 days has expired, whichever comes first. You have the option to continue using the same account after the promotion period by upgrading to a paid account.
The “Try for Free” trials page has been updated to give an indication of how many hours of each service are possible with the trial, e.g. Database = 720 hours & 4TB of Storage; Big Data Compute = 3000 hours, Analytics = 3000 hours.
