This datasource reads metadata, vendor data and user data from Oracle Compute Infrastructure (OCI).
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
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:
Allow and support the future growth of the OCI platform.
- Address small differences between OpenStack and Oracle metadata

may change in the future).
An example configuration with the default values is provided below:
