Web chat accessibility testing Oracle products are tested for accessibility using a variety of techniques including automated tools, expert heuristic review, visual inspection, manual operation, and testing with various AT by both disabled and non-disabled users. We report the outcome of that testing using the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). The VPAT was developed by ITI and GSA to assist Federal contracting officials and other buyers in making preliminary assessments regarding the availability of commercial ICT products and services with features that support accessibility. See Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates for an in-depth discussion of how we use the VPAT, and to locate the VPATs for Oracle products.

Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started Oracle Cloud processes the order, sets up the service, and sends an email to the account administrator when the service is ready to be activated. The account administrator then uses the MyAccount application to activate the service. When the activation of a paid subscription to an Oracle Cloud service is complete, the designated service administrator and identity domain administrator (if different) receive a postactivation email from Oracle Cloud. As a service administrator or an identity domain administrator, you use My Services to verify that your Oracle Cloud service is up and running. You can also use My Services to monitor utilization, view service details, and access any control panels and associated tools for the Oracle Cloud service.

Scaling

Scaling
Independence of resources Oracle’s cloud services are architected from the ground up to serve the needs of large enterprises. Our elastic cloud architecture supports independent scaling at each of 3 tiers: Web, Application, and Database. Our provisioning and load balancing processes dynamically add additional resources based on current and anticipated usage. Because Oracle owns its own data centers and all elements of the hardware and software stack, we are also uniquely able to scale our cloud solutions.
