The Oracle OCI cloud and Juju

List of supported clouds > Oracle OCI

This document describes details specific to using your existing Oracle OCI cloud with Juju.

See more: Oracle OCI

When using the Oracle OCI cloud with Juju, it is important to keep in mind that it is a (1) machine cloud and (2) not some other cloud.

See more: Cloud differences in Juju

As the differences related to (1) are already documented generically in our Tutorial, How-to guides, and Reference docs, here we record just those that follow from (2).
