Free Minecraft Server on OCI- Free Forever

A couple of years ago I helped my son set up a Minecraft Server on an RPi. It worked fine. It was a little slow, but that could be my internet connection.

But soon after I got here at Ampere, I learned that many people had set up a Minecraft Server on OCI that is free forever (as you won’t get a bill randomly one month because you forgot to turn off your free tier). So I thought that I would post this in case other need the encouragement to try it out.


My son runs two Minecraft servers on OCI using his FREE OCI tier account. They both run great!



I use mine OCI instance as a quick trial for lots of work type things. Also it hosts a browser for quick personal look ups and email during the work day. It makes quite a powerful Nextcloud trial instance too.
