VM flexible shapes support for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 7.2.1

The VM flexible shapes now supported for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) permit customization for OCPU and memory resources.

When you create a VM instance using a flexible shape, you can select the number of OCPUs and the amount of memory that you need for the workloads that run on the instance. The network bandwidth and number of VNICs scale proportionately with the number of OCPUs.

For more information about instance type support, see the FortiAnalyzer OCI Administration Guide.

When creating a FortiManager-VM or FortiAnalyzer-VM instance in OCI, you can select one of the following flexible shapes:

  • VM.Standard3.Flex (Intel)

  • VM.Standard.E3.Flex (AMD)

  • VM.Standard.E4.Flex (AMD)

When creating an instance with a flexible shape, you can use the horizontal scrolls to customize the Number of OCPUs and the Amount of memory (GB).

Note

VM BYOL licenses are based on vCPUs. The minimum vCPU support for FortiManager-VM and FortiAnalyzer-VM is 4. 1 OCPU equates to 2 vCPUs. Ensure that you meet the requirements for your license.

Once the instance is created, you can check the instance shape from the dashboard as well. For example, see the dashboard for a VM.Standard3.Flex (Intel) shape below.

With this flexible shape, you can customize the number of OCPUs and the amount of memory when launching or resizing your VM.
