Elke Phelps

Oracle VM Templates for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 for Exalogic are now available on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.  The templates contain all the required elements to create an Oracle E-Business Suite R12 demonstration system on an Exalogic server. You can use these templates to quickly build an EBS 12.1.3 demonstration environment, bypassing the operating system and the software install (via the EBS Rapid Install).

    Hi Steven, this is a very pleasant surprise, thank you very much! We have strength in both E-Business Suite and Exalogic and we have Exalogic Control vDC running in our company.

    We are going to download the templates over the weekend and test them out next week...hopefully I will be able to provide some feedback to you soon.

    Hi Steven,

    We are Oracle E-Business 12.1.3, Database running on Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.4. We would like to migrate to Exadata and Exalogic. Is the Cloning Oracle Applications Release 12 with Rapid Clone (Doc ID 406982.1) the only option to migrate to Exalogic/Exadata? Please advise on the migration options and the best approach.
