Platform for Innovation – Interview with Oracle’s VP of Java Cloud Services by Alexandra Huff

clip_image002In an interview with Mike Lehmann, vice president of product management for Oracle's Java Cloud Services and the Cloud Application Foundation group, you can hear about Oracle's most recent developments in Java for the Cloud, related technologies, and developer-friendly design concepts.
"Architecturally, without a lot of effort, you can bring multi-tier architectures together in interesting ways that previously would have taken weeks or maybe even months, depending on the complexity of your IT environment," says Lehmann. "Now it's basically on demand. So it really changes how you think about your applications. You're getting an enterprise-quality solution out of the box from Oracle."
We think Java developers will be very interested to explore these services, and take note of the rapidly expanding offerings being rolled out over the course of the year. You can read the full article in the most recent edition of Java Magazine. Learn more about our Java Cloud Services and related offerings online.

Java Cloud Service – initial impressions for WebLogic architects and administrators by Simon Haslam

clip_image003There's no doubt that "the cloud" is coming, even in the relatively conservative world of mission-critical Oracle platforms.

At the end of 2012 I took a trial of what was then "Java (or WebLogic) as a Service" (now known as "SaaS Extension"). Back then I wasn't hugely impressed - yes, I could deploy a simple web app, but the WebLogic environment was very heavily constrained and almost entirely hidden from the administrator - no WebLogic console, no WLST, minimal logs. As a result as soon as I tried to deploy something non-trivial, in this case Apache Roller (the software running this blog), I ran into all sorts of class white-list issues and with little debug information so I quickly gave up in despair!

Anyway here we are, over 2 years later, and Oracle's latest "Java Cloud Service" (JCS) is looking far more promising, so here are my initial impressions of what I've seen and read. First things first: JCS comes in 3 variants:

  • Java Cloud Service - SaaS Extension: essentially this is product I tried previously which is now targetted at extending Oracle's SaaS applications (including cloud-based Oracle Fusion Applications), presumably with relatively simple ADF apps.
  • Java Cloud Service - Virtual Image: this is a single instance WebLogic VM intended for development use and simple testing.
  • Java Cloud Service: the "full" version (Oracle doesn't seem to have a distinct name to differentiate it) which can be clustered and is designed for production workloads.

For this article I'm only going to focus on the last of these options, i.e. fully clustered WebLogic with root level access to the VMs but automated provisioning and management provided by Oracle! clip_image001

Pricing

Before we get into too much technical detail, let's get an idea of pricing for a single, production-grade environment. To keep it simple I'm going to make some assumptions:

  1. I need WebLogic Suite for all its various benefits, as well as the option to run SOA Suite, etc.
  2. I'm only considering a 2 node cluster of 2 x 2 vCPU (or 2 x 4 vCPU) running in a single data centre.
  3. The cluster is of static specification and running 24/7 for a year.
  4. I need a load balancer to front my cluster and for SSL termination.

Oracle has come up with a term called the Oracle (OCPU) for billing purposes. 1 OCPU equates to the "CPU capacity of an Intel Xeon E5-2600 ... processor core with hyper threading enabled. Each OCPU corresponds to two hardware execution threads, known as vCPUs." Elsewhere (I can't find it now) I've seen it called a "2012 model 3.0 GHz Xeon core", which would be an E5-26xx (v1) processor, though, like Amazon EC2, I suspect there will be some variability - if you're lucky you might "land" on a new E5-26xx v3-based server. Very sensibly Oracle are allocating those vCPUs from the same cores (see below) - modern hyper-threading gives you a performance boost but it's a long way from double the single core performance, and having vCPUs on hyper-threads on different, fully populated, cores would be very bad for performance.

The virtual machines, aka instances, come in what Oracle called "shapes". A shape is a very similar concept to Amazon's EC2 instance type and describes fixed vCPU/memory permutations. There's a full table of VM shapes here but, for this article, we're interested in the following:

  • OC3: 2 vCPU, 7.5 GB => 1 OCPU (general purpose)
  • OC1M: 2 vCPU, 15 GB => 1 OCPU (high memory)
  • OC2M: 4 vCPU, 30 GB => 2 OCPU (high memory)

Creating and Managing a Java Cloud Service-Coherence Instance

clip_image002Purpose

This tutorial tells you how to create an instance of Oracle Java Cloud Service that has Oracle Coherence enabled. You also learn about other tools and software (WebLogic Server Administration Console, Fusion Middleware Control, Oracle Coherence, and Oracle Traffic Director) that help you manage your instance in the cloud.

Time to Complete

Approximately 30 to 45 minutes, plus the time needed for Oracle Cloud to provision your instance. (Provisioning is the process of allocating cloud resources for your service.)

Introduction

Oracle Java Cloud Service is part of the platform service offerings in Oracle Cloud. Powered by Oracle WebLogic Server, it provides a platform on top of Oracle's enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure for developing and deploying new or existing enterprise Java applications. You have the option of adding an Oracle Coherence caching and data grid tier to your deployment.

With Oracle Java Cloud Service, you can quickly create and configure Oracle WebLogic Server instances that are preconfigured to Oracle Database Cloud Service, set up your enterprise Java application environment without worrying about the underlying infrastructure, and thus get your application users up and running faster.

Scenario

You have subscriptions to Oracle Java Cloud Service, Oracle Database Cloud Service, and Oracle Storage Cloud Service. You have already provisioned instances of Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Storage Cloud Service, and now you want to get started with Oracle Java Cloud Service. This tutorial takes you through that process. When you are finished, you will have an instance of Oracle Java Cloud Service that you can use to deploy applications and provide access to users. With Oracle Coherence enabled, you can also use Coherence caching and data grid functionality.

In this tutorial, you will create an instance with the following configuration:

  • Oracle WebLogic Server 12c (12.1.3)
  • One Oracle Compute Unit (OCPU) and 7.5 gigabytes of memory allocated for the service instance in the Virtual Machine (VM)
  • One storage-disabled WebLogic Server cluster with two Managed Servers
  • One storage-enabled WebLogic Server cluster with three Managed Servers (this is the Coherence data tier)
  • An SSH public key (associated with a private key) that you have in a file stored locally
  • A load balancer, configured with the policy Least Connection Count

Get the Tutorial here.
