  • What is OCI Arm Accelerator?

    Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Arm Accelerator is a 365-day Free Trial that offers free credits to open source developers, research universities, industry partners, and Oracle customers to run their workloads on Arm and contribute to the Arm ecosystem. The free credits can be used toward OCI Ampere A1 Compute and other OCI services for the duration of the trial or until all the credits are used, whichever comes first.

  • How do I get access to Arm Accelerator?

    Once you provide your email address, you will receive an email to apply for the Arm Accelerator. We’ll review your application and get back to you within five business days. Approved applicants will be invited to sign up for a new Oracle Cloud tenancy to receive free Oracle Cloud Universal Credits

  • How is Arm Accelerator different from the Oracle Cloud Free Tier?

    Oracle Cloud Free Tier allows you to sign up for an Oracle Cloud account that provides a number of Always Free services and a Free Trial with US$300 of free credits to use on all eligible OCI services for up to 30 days. OCI offers the most generous Always Free Arm resources (4 OCPUs, 24 GB memory) in the industry for a user to build and run Arm-based workloads. The 30-day Free Trial with US$300 in free credits is an excellent way to get started with your Arm initiative.

    Arm Accelerator is intended for those users who want to accelerate their Arm development. It grants a higher amount of Arm compute resources than those offered in the 30-day Free Trial and for a longer period of time.

  • Can I use the credits toward using OCI services other than OCI Ampere A1 Compute?

    Yes, in addition to OCI Ampere A1 Compute, you can use the credits toward other OCI services such as Object Storage and Networking for running Arm-based workloads.

  • I already have an Oracle Cloud tenancy. Can the Arm Accelerator free credits be applied to my existing tenancy?

    No, you must apply to OCI Arm Accelerator. Approved applicants must set up a new Oracle Cloud tenancy to receive free Oracle Cloud Universal Credits.
