Since it's Oracle, I'd be terrified of accidentally clicking the wrong thing and enabling a feature that sends a bill for thousands of dollars. It's very much the sort of thing that they'd do: Oracle is going after companies using Virtualbox Extension Pack with download logs and their office IP. Oracle copying the old Torrenting lawsuits for its free for home user licenses that exclude businesses.

It's not bad, but basically like the free tier that other cloud providers have

So can you run a web server with 100 GB of storage with this? And no traffic limits?

I haven't used OCI before but what's so special about this offer? AWS offers free-tier and I'm pretty sure GCP offers something similar

There is some limits, but enough for personal site or running some python scripts

Two VMs and load balancing is unusual for a free tier, I don't think any of the other major cloud providers offer more than one. Good if you want to play around with high availability and failover stuff. I'm not sure if it lets you run the free VMs in different datacentres, if so you could actually use it to host a live service with some degree of redundancy. It's an interesting offering, and never bad to have another free tier cloud provider to increase competition. Thanks for the heads up!
