What is Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute Classic?
What subscription options does Compute Classic offer?
- Dedicated Compute Classic: With this offering, you get a compute environment (called a site) that’s isolated at the hardware level. Your virtual machines (called instances) run on hardware that’s dedicated to you. You enjoy complete network isolation from other tenants. You can choose Oracle's enterprise grade x86 servers.
- Compute Classic: In this offering, which is priced lower than Dedicated Compute Classic, your instances run on hardware that’s shared with other tenants.
