OCI Basics

Send lab feedback


In this lab, you will deploy a single instance development environment. You will create a compute instance with a pre-installed development environment, set up a web server, attach block volume storage, and install a simple application that will utilize the block volume storage. Then you'll create a second compute instance that will re-use the boot volume of the first compute instance. And you'll move the application block volume to the second compute instance.

The goal of this lab is to demonstrate the basic functionality of OCI, starting with a simple network. Then add an instance with pre-installed developer tools. Eventually, everyone needs more storage so you'll learn how to add that. And you'll learn to move storage around to where it might be needed.

Lab Objectives

Upon completion of this Lab you will be able to:

  • Create a VCN
  • Launch a Compute Instance
  • Create and mount a Block Volume
  • Install a Web Server
  • Move boot and block storage to different instances
