Oracle Cloud Infrastructure: System Requirements

early release

The following requirements apply when using the Virtual Server Agent with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.


Add a separate hypervisor definition for each Oracle Cloud Infrastructure region.

Proxy Requirements

  • The VSA proxy must be an instance running in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  • The proxy must run one of the following operating systems:
    • Windows Server 2016
    • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Deploy a VSA proxy for each availability domain.

Guest Operating System Support

The following guest instance operating systems are supported for VM conversion:

  • CentOS 7
  • RHEL 6, RHEL 7
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2008 R2

Note: You can only back up and restore instances in the root compartment and first-level compartments for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regions. You cannot back up instances in subcompartments or restore instances to subcompartments. As a workaround, either move the instances to the root compartment or a first-level compartment, or install an agent such as a file system agent on the guest instances.
