Oracle Exalogic VBlock private cloud

The following high level steps (probably others) that would need to be performed to get a the application server software running on a VBlock platform. Because Oracle Exalogic is a hardware and software solution, these steps are not required: 1. Assess your application requirements. This includes what operating systems, database drivers, application server, SOA software, integration software, and application management software is required. 2. Research available component technologies and vendor products. Review the products and technologies from vendors that span operating systems to application management and monitor to application servers. 3. Identify all software components and evaluate their compatibility, required drivers, and vendor certifications. Ensure that the application’s middleware software will work with the hardware you have selected. 4. Obtain application server, management software, and database driver components from vendor(s) for trial use. This includes negotiating with all the vendors to obtain the software required to perform a Proof of Value (POV) or POC. 5. Assemble the software components, including the application software design. 6. Install the base software components sufficient for performing a network test. 7. Test the physical system, working with vendors to identify areas where they will need to supply changes or fixes. 8. Obtain and deploy patches and fixes from software vendors and deploy them to the test system. 9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 until the test environment is stable. 10. Finalize vendor price negotiations, support contracts, and vendor service-level agreements (SLAs). 11. Fully document the platform state and platform-specific operating/maintenance procedures, vendor support engagement practices, and internal triage protocols. 12. Move the system from testing/development to production. 13. Start over when someone changes the application requirements, when a key vendor product is discontinued or reaches end of life (EOL) prematurely, or when a key component vendor is no longer viable.
