Most Oracle Cloud services are designed to run in an Oracle Cloud account paired with Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS). However there’s also what’s known as a Traditional Cloud Account which uses traditional identity and access management software.
Traditional Cloud Accounts have a 1:1 mapping between the Identity instance and the Traditional Cloud Account.
An Oracle Cloud Account uses IDCS to manage users and control access to cloud services. IDCS allows a one-to-many mapping, which means many instances can be associated with a single cloud account.
When setting up your cloud account note that the name you choose will also be used to create the URLs to access all of your cloud services and once you create the account name you can’t change it, so take extra care in creating your cloud account name.
