I think this was the most awaited thing for any Applications DBA for not being left out in the race to the cloud. Oracle did support implementation of E-Buisness suite in the AWS cloud but there was always a question unanswered until now as to why would Oracle not use there own cloud service. As per this article dated 27th October 2015 Oracle launched their Compute cloud services 9 years after Amazon's EC2.
- Software as a Service (Saas).
- Database as a Service (Daas).
- Platform as a Service (Paas).
- Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas).
- EBS 12.2.5 Demo Install Image.
- EBS 12.2.5 Fresh Install Image.
- EBS Provisioning Tools Image.
- EBS Development Tools Image.
- EBS OS-Only Image (supports 12.2 and 12.1.3 cloning).
So if you look at it you either can spin off a OS with pre build RPM's and install E-Business suite instance, clone an existing E-Business suite instance from on-premise to the cloud or use a virgin or demo (vision) instance. You can do a single node, multi-node install by using the provisioning image. Following are some documentations links for your reference:
- Creating a New Oracle E-Business Suite Installation
- Using Automated Provisioning of Oracle E-Business Suite
- Migrating an Existing Oracle E-Business Suite Installation
- Creating an Oracle E-Business Suite Development Environment
- Installing Oracle E-Business Suite Information Discovery 12.2 V6 on Oracle Compute Cloud Service Instances
You may note that RAC is currently not supported on the compute cloud but is available as a service on the Database cloud service or Exadata cloud service. At the time of writing this article there is not RAC image available and has to implemented by contacting the respective service teams through an SR.
FAQ is a good document to go through for any more queries.
