When moving into the cloud, one of the first (and probably one of the most important) things to consider is networking. Of all the skills an Oracle DBA needs to be able to master, networking is quickly rising to very high importance. To make matters slightly worse, more experienced cloud users use many acronyms, making it hard to follow the discussion. Since the database is often the heart and soul of an application it is important for the DBA to know the implications of the networking design.

So, what are the aspects of Cloud Networking that you should know about? What are Virtual Cloud Networks, private and public Subnets, and Security Lists? How do you configure firewalls and defence in depth? How can you configure routing? How can you allow servers behind a firewall to access the Internet?

In this talk you care going to hear more about all concepts related to cloud networking with special focus on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (although these concepts are easily transferable to other clouds)

At the end of the talk, attendees should be able to have an informed conversation with network architects about the deployment of an Oracle database in the cloud.
