OCI Overview

In order to onboard an OCI Tenant into the Valtix Controller, the Tenant needs to be properly setup. The following are the general steps required to prepare the Tenant. More detailed instructions are provided in OCI Setup.

Tech Notes

Valtix supports both Ingress and Egress/East-West protection for OCI. Inventory and Traffic Discovery are not supported.

In order to onboard the OCI Tenant, it is required to subscribe to the US West (San Jose) Region. If this Region is not subscribed, then the onboarding of the OCI Tenant will result in an error.

In order to deploy a Valtix Gateway into OCI, the Terms and Conditions for the Valtix Compute image must be accepted in each OCI Compartment. Otherwise the deployment will error out with an unauthorized error.
