    Hello world!

    Welcome to the Oracle Cloud Blog! My Name is Richard Garsthagen, I work for Oracle, but all things published here are my own opinions and views. I love technology and to share cool stuff around technology. Before I worked for Oracle I was employed by VMware and run for many years a virtualization blog called run-virtual.com. As the Oracle Cloud is getting cooler and cooler, I thought it would be fun again to blog, this time about the Oracle Cloud and the cool things it can do. While the Oracle Cloud is huge, I will mainly focus in this blog about the Infrastructure and Platform Services. Hope you will enjoy…
