Unique Features in Oracle Cloud for Oracle Database Workloads

Cloud is a cloud is a cloud – true, but there are differences. Most of us know it costs twice as many licenses to run Oracle on non-OCI clouds. What are the other benefits for Oracle database customers and DBAs on OCI cloud? Let’s go over the various cloud offerings, free product licenses, built-in tools, automation, and orchestration in Oracle Cloud that are not available on other clouds.
