Cloud Notifications

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Notifications is a highly available, low-latency publish/subscribe (pub/sub) service that sends alerts and messages to Oracle Functions, email, SMS, and message delivery partners, including Slack, PagerDuty, and ServiceNow. The service integrates with Oracle Identity and Access Management for secure access, and delivers each message, even during traffic bursts.

Highly available architecture

Notifications can handle bursts in traffic and failures in infrastructure.

Support for cloud native applications

Notifications can deliver any type of payload (XML, JSON, and binary) to various microservices.
