Today we are talking about E-Business Suite on OCI (Oracle Cloud)
This blog entry is an extension of this one, about OCI topic.
We will talk about the benefits of this solutions, some of them are not E-Business Suite specific (like cost saving when migrating to Cloud), and many others that they are, like using EBS Cloud Admin Tools.
First of all, we want to say that, for a final application user, there is no difference at the EBS interface, in fact if it’s well sized; there will be an improved performance.
Also, the power of scaling that the cloud provides, sometimes we may need extra compute power, we can scale-up our compute capacity, making an “horizontal scale”, adding application nodes, or making a “vertical scale” adding OCPUs to the database tier (located at DBCS on the PaaS Service)
To use vertical scaling on Database node, must be located at DBCS, where we will keep “sudo” user in the machine, and we will have some additional settings (database encrypted).
The main key factor that we found using Oracle IaaS to manage our environments and provisioning new ones, we are talking about EBS Cloud Admin Tools.
Using these tools we could do the following things:
- Creating a Fresh or Demo Environment.
- Backup creation.
- Snapshot creation.
- Clone deployment (from Backup, Snapshot, or Stage Area)
- Refresh an environment from Backup.
- Other functionalities (Horizontal Scale, or Workflow Notification mailer configuration)
These functionalities, make our life easier, improving times on task that would take few hours, or even days (like cloning an environment), reducing it to minutes- Using FastClone utility.
But Cloud Admin Tools are not the only key factor, there are utilities to deploy new environments using Marketplace machine images, using these images we could create new environment in a few minutes, with the las versions of EBS (12.2.6, 12.2.7).
Also with the proper configuration, in case of disaster, you may redirect the work charge to a second AD (Availability Domain) located in the same location that the first, using the Dataguard technology, ensuring the information is replicated by itself between both CPD. Ensuring always High Availability, and the application will be always as secure as possible.
From the Acevedo team, we know by ourselves all the process of migrating E-Business Suite to Oracle cloud, we have experience in this kind of solutions, and we think that Oracle Cloud is the best option for all these utilities and tools that they provide.
