Oracle cloud free tier feedback

Does anyone have any experience (positive or negative) of running julia on the oracle cloud free tier (4 arm cores / 24GB ram). The generous memory allocation would obviously be helpful for Julia.

Are you sure? 24 GB RAM? That is an unusual configuration…

I’ve used it to test some ARM things with no issue. It should all just work though I think you can ask for the OS to be Ubuntu. Which is probably better tested.

I like the usability of AWS and Google Cloud more, but the free tier machine from Oracle is on a completely other level than what Google (or AWS) is offering.
It is really great to get such a powerful machine for free. I just looked into it, it is up for 230 days, executing a small julia web application and a julia data pipeline. :+1:

You also get a public IP for your machine for free, however I’m not sure if it is static, maybe it can change on reboot.
