What’s New for Oracle Container Cloud Service

As soon as new and changed features become available, Oracle Container Cloud Service instances are upgraded in the data centers where Oracle Cloud services are hosted. You don’t need to request an upgrade to be able to use the new features—they come to you automatically. Here’s an overview of new features and enhancements added recently to improve your Oracle Container Cloud Service experience.

March 2018

Feature Description
Stopping, starting, and restarting Oracle Container Cloud Service instances

You can now stop, start, and restart Oracle Container Cloud Service instances.

See Stopping, Starting, and Restarting Oracle Container Cloud Service Instances.

Stopping, starting, and restarting manager nodes and worker nodes

You can now explicitly stop, start, and restart the manager node and individual worker nodes in an Oracle Container Cloud Service instance.

See Stopping, Starting, and Restarting Manager and Worker Nodes.

Specifying the compute shape of manager nodes

You can now specify the shape that determines the number of CPUs and amount of memory assigned to the manager node in an Oracle Container Cloud Service instance.

See Creating Oracle Container Cloud Service Instances

May 2017

Feature Description
Adding and removing worker node hosts

You can now change the number of worker node hosts that are available to run Docker containers in an Oracle Container Cloud Service instance:

  • by ‘scaling out’ to add more worker node hosts

  • by ‘scaling in’ to remove worker node hosts that you’ve previously added

See Changing the Number of Worker Node Hosts in Oracle Container Cloud Service Instances.

March 2017

Feature Description
SSH access to worker nodes

Previously, you could only access manager nodes using SSH. Now, you can also access worker nodes using SSH, enabling you to:

  • Get direct access to Docker on the host to run docker build or to setup mount points to use with containers.

  • Make configuration changes to the Docker daemon running on worker nodes.

  • Add certificates to worker nodes.

  • Import and export container tarballs.

  • Add more ssh keys to the host.

  • Check system logs.

  • Modify and tune specific performance settings.

  • Partition and format additional attached storage devices.
