Polyglot platform. Use the language of your choice. Today we have Java SE, Node.js, PHP, and will be adding support for Java EE WAR deployment, as well as Python and Ruby. We're open to supporting other languages if the demand is there.
Open platform. Run anything. This is an ideal platform for running open source stacks and containers like Tomcat, Jetty, Express, etc.
Elastic. Applications can be scaled in/out and up/down to meet demand. Auto-scaling is coming soon so that, based on metrics, scaling actions can be triggered.
Integrated with Oracle Developer Cloud Service. Handy for end-to-end continuous integration, build, test, and deployment.
Integrated withOracle Public Cloud ecosystem. This combination is ideal for building cloud native (microservice style) applications that need messaging, storage, etc.
Also, Java SE Advanced is included, i.e., you're able to interact with Flight Recorder under the Admin tab. Once there, you'll see "Recordings". The help text explains what you can do. The best strategy in production is to turn on Flight Recorder in "continuous" mode so that it is recording all the time, keeping a user-specified amount of data/minutes of data. Then, in ACCS, one can trigger the dump of this data if any anomalous behavior is detected. From ACCS, you can download Flight Recorder data dumps and open in Mission Control on your desktop.
