This blog post summarizes important references available for E-Business Suite customers on Exalogic and Exadata.
For general E-Business Suite recommendations, refer to the current quarterly blog post on the E-Business Suite Technology blog.
For new deployments/installations of E-Business Suite on Exalogic and Exadata, refer to MOS Doc 1460742.1 - Deploying Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle Exadata Database Machine.
Migrating an existing E-Business Suite to Exalogic and Exadata consists of two major phases -
1. Migrating the E-Business Suite database to Exadata - detailed steps in MOS Doc 1133355.1
2. Migrating the E-Business Suite application tier to Exalogic - detailed steps in MOS Doc 438086.1
The list of E-Business Suite (and other software) versions that are currently supported on Exalogic are documented in MOS Doc 1302529.1
Best practices for managing concurrent manager log and out directories are outlined in MOS Doc 1616827.1 - these recommendations are applicable to all platforms, and there is a specific reference pertaining to Exalogic.
E-Business Suite VM templates built specifically for Exalogic are available -
1. For 12.1.3 VM templates, see details in MOS Doc 1499132.1
2. For 12.2.3 VM templates, see details in MOS Doc 1633952.1
These templates provide an easy way to quickly install the latest EBS software bypassing the traditional "install from media and then apply the latest EBS database/techstack/application patches" method. Customers can customize these installs as appropriate and create their own templates as outlined in the Exalogic documentation. Although these templates will create an E-Business Suite database on a Linux VM running on Exalogic, for optimal performance it is recommended that the EBS database tier be migrated to Exadata.
