Hi [subscriber:firstname | default:subscriber],

Nice updates this week! Autonomous Database - Shared private endpoints came out, this means you can access them now straight from your VCN.

If you are planning to up your skills check tip of the week too!

New Features

Autonomous Database - Shared has now private endpoints, why is this a big thing? Earlier you had to do some extra magic to access ADB-S but now you can do it really easily by configuring a private endpoint. That way traffic will flow within your VCN to ADB-S and you don't need even a public subnet!
Autonomous Exadata Dedicated Infrastructure now supports X8 shapes, half rack and quarter rack available. This actually has two updates included, X8 shapes and then half rack deployment possibility!
Oracle Functions service is now integrated with Notifications. Here is an example scenario on this feature.
And for Autonomous Database - Dedicated you can now restart your ADB-D database with a single-click! I don't actually know how you did it earlier.. with two?
