Configuring the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure NTP Service for an Instance

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers a fully managed, secure, and highly available NTP service that you can use to set the date and time of your Compute and Database instances from within your virtual cloud network (VCN). The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure NTP service uses redundant Stratum 1 devices in every availability domain. The Stratum 1 devices are synchronized to dedicated Stratum 2 devices that every host synchronizes against. The service is available in every region.

This topic describes how to configure your Compute instances to use this NTP service.

You can also choose to configure your instances to use a public NTP service or use FastConnect to leverage an on-premises NTP service.
