This datasource reads metadata, vendor-data and user-data from Oracle Compute Infrastructure (OCI).

Oracle Platform

OCI provides bare metal and virtual machines. In both cases, the platform identifies itself via DMI data in the chassis asset tag with the string ‘’.

Oracle’s platform provides a metadata service that mimics the 2013-10-17 version of OpenStack metadata service. Initially support for Oracle was done via the OpenStack datasource.

Cloud-init has a specific datasource for Oracle in order to:
  1. allow and support future growth of the OCI platform.
  2. address small differences between OpenStack and Oracle metadata implementation.
