About Your Application and Oracle Application Container Cloud Service

Oracle Application Container Cloud Service lets you deploy Java SE, Node.js, PHP, Python, Ruby, Go, and .NET Core applications to Oracle Cloud. You can also deploy Java EE web applications.

Subscribing to Oracle Application Container Cloud Service makes all languages available when you deploy your application.

Each application instance you deploy to Oracle Application Container Cloud Service runs in its own Docker container. A container is like a very lightweight virtual machine. Your application runs in its own isolated execution space, with its own memory, file system, and network access. Access to these operating system resources takes place without the cost of having to implement an entire virtual operating system.
