How to provision a Node API Gateway in the new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) - part 1

Introduction API platforms enable enterprises to accelerate innovation, provide shared services and data, and adapt to market and customer needs. APIs have become the foundation of the fast-moving digital economy. As customer expectations increase, companies need to be able to meet those demands with flexible and scalable technology. Oracle’s API Platform Cloud Service offers full life cycle API management: planning, design, implementation, publication, operation, consumption, maintenance and retirement of APIs. It includes a developer’s portal to target, assist and govern the communities of developers who embed the APIs, as well as runtime management and analytics, all built on top of a mature gateway used by telecommunication companies for a decade. Oracle API Platform comprises 3 major components as stated below to serve specific purpose: Management Portal – This is used to create and manage APIs, deploy APIs to gateways, and manage gateways, and create and manage applications. You can also manage and Deploy APIs and manage gateways with the REST API. Developer Portal – Application developers subscribe to APIs and get the necessary information to invoke them from this portal. Gateway Node – This is the security and access control run-time layer for APIs. Each API is deployed to a gateway node from the Management Portal or via the REST API. API Gateway Nodes are the runtime components that enforce all policies specified through the management portal. Gateways also help in collecting data for analytics. The gateways can be deployed anywhere – on premise, on Oracle Cloud or to any third-party cloud providers. This allows the gateways to be closest to your backend services. Some organizations may not want to expose their data at runtime through the cloud, so it is possible for them to deploy the gateway on premise. Their data is never published back to the cloud. For analytics also, only the aggregated information is passed back periodically to the management service running on the cloud. In this blog miniseries, I will show how to successfully provision your Node API Gateway in the new OCI to start the full life cycle of your APIs. For this installation I am going to use two third-party tools – in this case, Putty and WinSCP. Make sure you have them installed if you are going to follow through the entire miniseries. In this first part, I will cover some of the prerequisites that you have to meet before installing the Node API Gateway on your VM from OCI. On the second part, I will cover the rest of prerequisites and, finally, on the third part I will cover the installation process with registration and testing of the Node API Gateway.   Prerequisite: Create a new VM in OCI To successfully provision a Node API Gateway, you must first create a new VM running on Linux in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. In order to accomplish this task, you must have a Compartment and a Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) or create them. By default, when you receive your Oracle Cloud Account you should already have a Compartment and a VCN created for you.   Create a new Compartment Open the navigation menu. Under Governance and Administration, go to Identity and click Compartments. Click Create Compartment. Enter the following: Name: Enter a name (required), for example "DemoVM". Description: Enter a description (required), for example: "Demo compartment for the VM". Click Create Compartment. Your compartment is displayed in the list. Switch to your new compartment by selecting it from the Compartment list on the left side of the Console.   Create a new VCN Open the navigation menu. Under Core Infrastructure, go to Networking and click Virtual Cloud Networks. Ensure that the “DemoVM” compartment (or the compartment designated for you) is selected in the Compartment list on the left. Click Create Virtual Cloud Network. Enter the following: Create in Compartment: This field defaults to your current compartment. Select the compartment you want to create the VCN in, if not already selected. Name: Enter a name for your cloud network, for example “VCNforAPINodeGateway”. Select Create Virtual Cloud Network Plus Related Resources. The dialog expands to list the items that will be created with your cloud network. Accept the defaults for any other fields. Scroll to the bottom of the dialog and click Create Virtual Cloud Network.   Create a new VM in OCI To create a Linux instance using the Console: Open the navigation menu. Under Core Infrastructure, go to Compute and click Instances. Choose a Compartment you have permission to work in, and then click Create Instance. In the Create Compute Instance dialog box, you specify the resources to use for your instance. By default, your instance launches in the current compartment, and the resources you choose also come from the current compartment. In the Create Compute Instance dialog box, you can specify the following: Name your instance, for example “APINodeGatewayVM” Choose an operating system or image source: The source of the image to use for booting the instance – by default it should be Oracle Linux 7.6. If not, click Change Image Source, the Browse All Images dialog box opens with the operating system or image source options. Select Oracle Linux 7.6 for this example. Select an availability domain for your instance: The availability domain in which you want to run the instance – just leave the default. Choose instance type: Select Virtual Machine. Choose instance shape: A template that determines the number of CPUs, amount of memory, and other resources allocated to a newly created instance – by default it should be VM.Standard2.1. For this example I am going to use VM.Standard2.2, so click Change Shape, the Browse All Shapes dialog box opens with a list of the virtual machine (VM) that are available for the instance type that you selected. Choose VM.Standard2.2 shape and then click Select Shape. Configure boot volume: Size and encryption options for the instance's boot volume – just leave the default (nothing checked). Configure networking: The network details for the instance. Just make sure you are in the right compartment, “DemoVM” in this case. Add SSH key: You need to have a SSH key previously configured. Here you will add the public key portion of the key pair that you want to use for SSH access to the instance. Show Advanced Options: Advanced networking and management options – there is no need to access advanced options for our scenario Click Create. To track the progress of the operation, you can monitor the associated work request. After the instance is provisioned, details about it appear in the instance list. To view additional details, including IP addresses, click the instance name.   Prerequisite: Open the communication ports 8011 and 9022 Oracle API Gateway Node communicates with the exterior world on 2 (two) main ports: 8011 for HTTP and 9022 for HTTPS. In order to obtain this communication, you must open these ports on the VM and on the OCI level through the “Ingress Rules”. This information can be seen in the Security List Details under the VCN you created or you already have (for this example, the name of the VCN is “VCNforAPINodeGateway”)   Open ports 8011 and 9022 on the VM To open the ports on the VM, I use Putty to connect via SSH to the VM instance. Once you have access to the terminal from your VM instance, run the following commands: sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=8011/tcp sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=9022/tcp sudo firewall-cmd --reload     Very important! The VMs on OCI already have installed a firewall package. If you are doing these actions on other machines/VMs please install the firewall package by running the following command: sudo yum install firewalld   Open ports 8011 and 9022 on OCI level Open the navigation menu. Under Core Infrastructure, go to Networking and click Virtual Cloud Networks. Click the VCN you're interested in. In this case, it’s the “VCNforAPINodeGateway”. Under Resources, click Security Lists. Click the security list you're interested in. In this case, it’s the “Default Security List for VCNforAPINodeGateway”. Under Resources, click on the Ingress Rules. Add a new ingress rule Click on Add Ingress Rule. Choose whether it's a stateful or stateless rule. In this case, rules are stateful. Enter the source CIDR (for ingress). For this example, use 0.0.0.0/0 to indicate all IP addresses. Select the IP protocol (for example, TCP, UDP, ICMP, "All protocols", and so on). Enter further details depending on the protocol: Choose TCP and only enter the “Destination Port Range” with the value of 8011. You can enter "All" to cover all ports for “Source Port Range”. Click on the Add Ingress Rules button. Changes should be active almost immediately. Repeat the process for the value of 9022.   Stay tuned for part 2 of this blog mini series where I will list the other prerequisites that you have to meet before installing the Node API Gateway on your VM from OCI.

What to look for in brand new Oracle Database 19c

Oracle database 19c builds on top of the innovation and improvements of previous releases such as Multitenant, In-memory, JSON object support for Developers, Sharding and many other features that enable Oracle’s Autonomous database cloud services . Oracle Database 19c is a long term support release of Oracle database 12c Family (which includes Oracle database 18c) . Oracle Database 19c is now available on (AIX , HP/UX , Windows ,zlinux , linux ) for you to download, but you can also retrieve ready Oracle database 19c single instance EE & SE Docker images via GitHub ,  Vagrant box that provisions Oracle Database on Linux software automatically and Oracle VM Templates for Oracle Database 19c, Single Instance, and Oracle Real Application Clusters. For more information and latest versions available check the Release Schedule on Document ID 742060.1 at My Oracle Support What is New for DBA & developers in Oracle database 19c? Here is a sample features of cool new things in Oracle database 19c but make sure to check out all New features mentioned below . General - Flashback Standby database when Primary database is flashed back: Flashback Database moves the entire database to an older point in time and opens the database with RESETLOGS. In a Data Guard setup, if the primary database is flashed back, the standby site is no longer in sync with the primary. In previous releases, getting the secondary to the same point in time as the primary requires a manual procedure to flash back standby databases. A new parameter is introduced which enables the standby database to be flashed back automatically when Flashback Database is performed on the primary database. RAC & Grid infrastructure - Zero-Downtime Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patching: Zero-Downtime Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patching enables patching of Oracle Grid Infrastructure without interrupting database operations. Patches are applied out-of-place and in a rolling fashion, with one node being patched at a time, while the database instances on the node remain operational. Zero-downtime Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patching supports Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) databases on clusters with two or more nodes. Zero-Downtime Grid Infrastructure Patching significantly increases database availability by allowing customers to perform a rolling patch of Oracle Grid Infrastructure without interrupting database operations on the node being patched and without impacting capacity or performance on those database instances. Performance - SQL Quarantine: SQL statements that are terminated by Oracle   Database Resource Manager due to their excessive consumption of CPU and I/O resources can be automatically quarantined. The execution plans associated with the terminated SQL statements are quarantined to prevent them from being executed again.This feature protects an Oracle database from performance degradation by preventing execution of SQL statements that excessively consume CPU and I/O resources.  Availability - Dynamically change Fast-Start Failover (FSFO) target : Currently the DBA must disable Fast_Start Failover in order to change the FSFO Target standby. With the arrival of multiple FSFO targets in Oracle Database 12.2.0.1, this becomes even more important. This new command allows the user to dynamically change the FSFO Target standby to another standby in the target list without requiring that FSFO be disabled.Forcing the user to disable FSFO to move to a new target standby exposes the configuration to a period where automatic failover cannot be used at all. Application Development - REST Enabled SQL Support: As opposed to creating Database Links, Oracle Application Express installations that utilize Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) 17.3 or later, can now execute any SQL through a REST endpoint. Developers can easily create REST Enabled SQL references by defining a name, the endpoint URL, and authentication information within Shared Components. Do you want to find more about what is New in Oracle database 19c such as Automatic Indexing, Secure Cluster Communication, Trace File Analyzer, Cluster health checks, Machine learning user interface (Data Miner), Security, Big data & Data warehousing ,Diagnosability and more. Please take a look at the following resources: Oracle Database 19c White paper : https://www.oracle.com/a/tech/docs/database19c-wp.pdf Oracle Database 19c Documentation and references : https://docs.oracle.com/en/database/oracle/oracle-database/19/newft/new-features.html Try Oracle Database 19c Now and see it in action : https://livesql.oracle.com Oracle Database Upgrade Guide and the new AutoUpgrade tool :https://docs.oracle.com/en/database/oracle/oracle-database/19/upgrd/index.html And feel free to contact us in case of upgrade/migration/adoption projects.

Partner Webcast - Oracle Digital Assistant Conversational Design & UX

The power of a conversational interface, such as Oracle Digital Assistant, lies in the ability for a user to communicate using natural language using phrases and terms with which they are familiar and comfortable. Oracle Digital Assistant goes well beyond standard chatbots available today that provide simple, single skilled, linear responses. By applying AI for natural language processing (NLP), natural language understanding (NLU) and machine learning (ML), Oracle is in a unique position to leverage its breadth and depth in enterprise applications, and offer a digital assistant that can truly span the enterprise. The very nature of language is complex, often imprecise and ambiguous. It is therefore critically important to design conversational interfaces with strategies and techniques to mitigate this complexity. The freedom of an open and loosely structured interface such as spoken and written language may exponentially add to the complexity of how you design these systems. So, rather than a user interaction being railroaded by the implementation of an IT system, what we will have is a naturally flowing conversation.

Use Multiple Identity Instances with Oracle Identity Cloud Service

            To effectively run an enterprise Identity Management program, more than one instance of your identity solution is often required. Whether you are separating a testing environment from production or isolating administrators and users for 2 separate use cases in your organization, you need fully isolated identity environments. This is why Oracle Identity Cloud Service supports multiple Identity Cloud Service Instances. It only takes a few minutes for a customer to create an entirely new, isolated identity instance within their Oracle cloud account. Let’s take a look at 2 of the most common use cases for multiple identity instances.   Production and Testing Environments Whether it’s a policy change, a new custom sign-in page, an update to MFA settings or a call to a new API, we want to know exactly how changes to our identity management settings will work before unleashing them on our user population. Multiple Identity Instances allow you to try these settings out before implementing them in your production environment. In addition, the people you want to access all these settings are likely different in a test environment vs production. Separate identity instances make sure you can maintain different sets of admins and users allows you to keep production environment in compliance while a different group of people are allowed to test.   Multiple IDCS Instances – Prod/Dev/QA Example   Separate User Populations When trying to protect resources for different user populations, everything can be different including administrators, users, access policies, and the sign-in experience. By leveraging multiple identity instances you can create the separation needed for each of these requirements. In addition, the license structure may be different from one population to the other. For example, if you have a set of consumers and a set of employees, you can create each identity instance with the appropriate license to fit the user type.   Multiple IDCS Instances – Employees/Customers Example Oracle Identity Cloud Service multiple instance capabilities will support you in either of these scenarios. For details on how to use this capability and understand the limits here are a few useful resources. Product Documentation Many thanks for contributing on this blog post to Jason Oeltjen, Director of Product Management, IDM Cloud Services for Oracle.

Partner Webcast – Oracle on Serverless Computing: Developing FaaS with Oracle Fn Project

It is probably one of the most wrongly named idea in the world of IT (what do you mean ‘serverless’, there are no servers? Where should I run my code then?) which is quite likely to take the current and future cloud by storm. The concept is simple – you don’t pay for cloud infrastructure (in fact you don’t care about IaaS at all, thus the confusing ‘serverless’), you rent it for each invocation of your business logic and immediately release after that so it can be used by someone else. This gives you massive scalability and absolutely no worries about picks and fluctuations in demand. What’s even more appealing businesswise - your bill is directly linked to your success (pay per invocation), no fixed or upfront costs. In fact, ‘serverless’ does not really equal FaaS (Function-as-a-Service), the latter being one of the propositions to solve the scalability and cost efficiency issues which still linger even in the modern cloud solutions. And here comes the catch - adopting FaaS is quite a brave architectural decision. You will need a platform which gets you there without falling into common pitfalls and makes you productive regardless of programming language you are skilled in. FN: Container-Native Serverless Platform, the FnProject, is an open source, cloud agnostic, serverless platform by Oracle which aims to solve all the infancy issues of the FaaS. It is 100% portable, polyglot platform based on containers to deliver the same experience regardless of where the function is being deployed: on the developer’s laptop or in the huge production cluster in the cloud. One of its unique features is the FDK, especially Fn Flow API which provides elegant and functional way to compose functions (inspired by Java’s CompletionStage and CompletableFuture constructs). In this webcast we will show how to get started with FnProject how to create and run functions both on your laptop and in the cloud. We will also shed some light on the future of the Oracle serverless computing platform which will be based on FnProject. Agenda: What is serverless and why it matters to your business? Introduction to FaaS (and what will happen to my microservice architecture after adopting FaaS) FnProject, basic facts and concepts Demo – developing and running Fn functions Oracle Functions, present and future of the Oracle Serverless Cloud offering Wrap-up - Q&A Presenter:  Lukasz Romaszewski - FMW and Cloud Specialist, Oracle Innovation and Modernization Center Poland Delivery Format This FREE online LIVE eSeminar will be delivered over the Web.

Partner Webcast – Enterprise ready production microservices on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes

There is a huge shift in application development where containerisation has become very popular with the move away from monolith application to microservices. Containers provide a level of isolation that, although not fully multi-tenant, can prevent applications from causing problems with other applications running on the same physical host. As containers grow in organisations, management of these containers becomes a problem and raises a need for container orchestration to help manage these containers. Kubernetes is the most popular container orchestration tool available and is maintained by one of the fastest-growing open-source communities. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes is a fully-managed, scalable, and highly available service that you can use to deploy your containerised applications to the cloud. Use Container Engine for Kubernetes when your development team wants to build, deploy, and manage cloud-native applications reliably. You specify the compute resources that your applications require, and Container Engine for Kubernetes provisions them on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in an existing OCI tenancy. Getting a Kubernetes cluster up and running, let alone a production ready one, has not historically been quite as straightforward. Please join us as we go through setting up a Kubernetes cluster on OCI, as we dive head first into the capabilities and benefits in a simple, intuitive and highly educational manner. Agenda: What is Containerization?

Partner Webcast – Oracle Database running on Docker in Oracle Container Cloud service

Docker has been an incredible success over the last few years. From a rather technical open source technology in 2014, it has evolved into a standardized runtime environment, that Developers & SW development companies use for faster time to market with continuous integration. The core concepts of Docker are images and containers. A Docker image contains everything that is needed to run your software: the code, a runtime (e.g. the JVM), drivers, tools, scripts, libraries, deployments, etc. Together, Oracle and Docker enable developers to quickly build cloud-native applications using Docker Enterprise Edition as their container platform and with Oracle’s Technology, such as Databases and developer tools, immediately available as Docker containers through the Docker Store.  Oracle Container Cloud service is a new, open, enterprise-grade, container-native platform, fully integrated with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. It's a service that addresses those additional requirements for running Docker in production, now officially supported for many Oracle enterprise products, including the #1 Oracle Database. Through this technical webcast we will discuss and demonstrate Oracle Database on Docker for automating development, test operations, and automating production operations. Join us for this Partner Webcast and learn how easily you can provision Oracle Database running on Docker in Oracle Container Cloud and take advantage of the benefits of Oracle's unique Container Cloud service architecture.

Partner Webcast – Building event driven microservices with Oracle Event Hub CS

If we are about to pick one word which would characterize the microservice approach, it would probably be the word freedom. It is all about freedom to change, freedom to deploy at any time, finally freedom to replace with a completely new technology stack when needed. The latter ability is actually the key driving architectural principle for microservices, which can be summarized as built to be replaced (in a contrast with the built to be reused SOA approach). Such freedom can be achieved only if we truly decouple each microservice at all levels from other services it interacts with. One of the most effective ways to provide such decoupling is using asynchronous communication between services. There are numerous asynchronous broker platforms available, both commercial and open source, but the market seems to favor Apache Kafka as de-facto standard technology and key enabler for the modern EDA (Event Driven Architecture) solutions. Kafka provides very efficient way to publish and subscribe to events and it is designed to be easily scaled, starting from small pilot deployments up to planet scale distributed systems. Having that said Kafka – being rather low level technology building block – is quite complex in terms of design and maintenance. The efficient and scalable architecture of Kafka makes it at the same time difficult to deploy and run on the same platform (e.g. Docker or Kubernetes) as consuming microservices, mainly because it does not comply with the 12 factor principles of stateless applications. Therefore it is common nowadays to find Kafka being rather an infrastructure element, and not just another service, especially in the dynamic cloud deployments. Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service follows precisely this approach. It provides an easy way to create and manage Kafka clusters for numerous other platform services and custom applications. As an architectural building block it enables various scenarios, starting from asynchronous communication patterns between the cloud native applications, data and service integration between cloud and on-premise deployments, serving as an efficient Big Data streaming channel and up to being used as a main event hose in the IoT world. We kindly invite you to this webinar during which you will learn how to configure and manage the OEHCS Kafka cluster and how to use it to provide reliable asynchronous event broker between microservices deployed in the Oracle Cloud.

Partner Webcast – Oracle Modern Application Development for Enterprises

Today’s global marketplace dictates that every organization - from large to small and across all industries - can only remain relevant through successful digital initiatives. These initiatives can span anything from mobile and chatbots, blockchain, artificial intelligence, customer experience, to cost reduction and much more. It is therefore imperative to be able to ‘do digital’ quickly, at low cost and across a variety of projects running in parallel. It is also important to shake away ‘old world’ habits and instead embrace a new digital character and new ways to execute. To deliver significant business value, digital organizations must develop unique systems of innovation. This is because custom development allows for greater control to deliver software capabilities that matter to the business and help differentiate from competition. It allows for speed to deciding on the roadmap, executing and adjusting. Cloud platforms can take away the complexities – leaving coders to code and deploy instead of setting up development infrastructure. Developers can now release new capabilities at higher quality and at speed, via a streamlined and integrated ‘Continuous Integration’ and ‘Continuous Delivery’ mechanism that delivers automation, reliability and repeatability of software releases. Join us in this webcast to learn more about how Oracle Cloud Application Development is helping developers to build new systems of innovation and adopt modern technologies easier and faster.

Creating a Custom Component in Oracle JET

Introduction Oracle JET (JavaScript Extension Toolkit) is a collection of open source libraries for JavaScript developers to develop client-side applications. It comes with lots of responsive components and layouts. You can explore them in Oracle JET's cookbook here. There could be cases when you need to create and use your custom components in Oracle JET. In this post, I will create a simple component and register it to be able to use it in my JET application.   Requirements Netbeans 8.1 with JET plugin installed. (You can visit this link to configure it). Oracle JET QuickStart Application created. (New Project -> Samples -> HTML5/JS -> Oracle JET QuickStart Basic).   Get Started Suppose that I have a requirement to create a component to place my links inside and specify link names dynamically as a component attribute. Let's see it. Below is the view that represents the component. It renders an array of links based on the names array. This array will be defined later when I create the viewModel of the component. <div>   <ul data-bind="foreach: names">             <li>                 <a data-bind="text: $data, attr: { id: 'id_' + $index() }"></a>             </li>   </ul> </div> Create the folder structure <site_root>/js/composites/my-comp and put my-comp.html there. I will refer to that location as <comp_home>. Add some CSS to it. Put my-comp.css in  <comp_home>. my-comp ul {     list-style: none;     background-color: #79a6d2;     overflow: hidden;     margin: 0;     padding: 0; } my-comp li {   float: left;   padding: 5px;   color: white; } my-comp li:hover {   background-color: #111111;   cursor: pointer; } my-comp a{     text-decoration: none;     color: white; } my-comp a:hover{     text-decoration: none; } As you'd figure, component name will be my-comp which will be registered later on. Now I need a metadata file to describe the component, properties etc. Put my-comp.json under <comp_home>. {     "name": "my-comp",     "description": "My custom link component",     "version": "1.0.0",     "properties":  {         "linknames": {             "type": "object"         }     } } Note the property linknames. This is going to be the component attribute that accepts an array of link names to be rendered. Now I need a viewModel to provide the data that come from linknames to the component as a names array. Put my-comp.js under <comp_home>. define(['knockout'], function (ko) { function model(context) { var self = this; context.props.then(function (properties) { if (properties.linknames) { self.names = properties.linknames; } }); } return model; }); One last thing to do is to register the component so that I can use it in my application. Put loader.js under <comp_home> define(['ojs/ojcore', 'text!./my-comp.html', './my-comp', 'text!./my-comp.json', 'css!./my-comp', 'ojs/ojcomposite'], function (oj, view, viewModel, metadata) { oj.Composite.register('my-comp', { view: {inline: view}, viewModel: {inline: viewModel}, metadata: {inline: JSON.parse(metadata)} }); } ); Notice the component is registered as my-comp and the files we created earlier are provided as view, viewModel and metadata. You can verify your directory structure below.    Now it's just a matter of requiring the component wherever you want to use. Let's open up incidents.js under <site_root>/js/viewModels and define a dependency shown in the 1st line as 'composites/my-comp/loader' to the component we created. While here, create some links as in 6th line. define(['ojs/ojcore', 'knockout', 'jquery', 'composites/my-comp/loader'], function(oj, ko, $) { function IncidentsViewModel() { var self = this; self.names = ["New Incident", "Open Incidents", "History"]; Open up incidents.html under <site_root>/js/views and place the component. <my-comp linknames='{{names}}'></my-comp> <div class="oj-hybrid-padding"> <h3>Incidents Content Area</h3> <div> .... Run the application and go to Incidents page. You should see your custom component there.  Summary Oracle JET is a toolkit for JavaScript developers that gives them great flexibility in developing client-side applications. It is an ideal collection of tools for any type of client-side Javascript application and if you are especially developing applications that interact with Oracle Cloud services and you want to utilize the same look and feel that Oracle Cloud services have been using.

Partner Webcast – Oracle Container Native Application Development Platform – Use with Kubernetes

Containerization of cloud applications rapidly becomes the right (only) way to deploy complex systems architected with microservice approach in mind. Containers solve one of the fundamental issues of software development – dev/test/prod environments disparity. Using containers substantially lowers the risk of changing and deploying new versions of the applications and allows IT to closely follow business needs. However, containers alone cannot be treated as a silver bullet and a remedy to all challenges. Complex systems may consist of dozens or hundreds of containers (following the microservice way), in this case the complexity shifts from developing components to running and managing them in the production environment. DevOps teams face different kind of challenges than in the traditional monolith approach. Fortunately, thanks to open source systems like Kubernetes, this challenge has been already addressed. Kubernetes, made by the cloud giant Google, has gained tremendous popularity recently and becomes de facto new “operating system/application server” in the modern cloud, quickly replacing any older technology. It handles and automates all the tasks needed to keep you application highly available and accessible from the outside word and allows you to manage complex network of inter-dependent containers which form the whole system. The last missing part in the picture has less to do with running applications and more with answering the question – how to shorten time from commit to deploy on production. In other words, we need also a modern CI/CD environment, which natively supports containers and allows automatization of all unit testing, integration testing, deploying on the staging environment, handling different deployment pipelines etc.  Having huge experience with providing variety of cloud services, Oracle has designed a new generation of container native, cloud application platform. It consist of three main services: Oracle Container Pipelines – based on Wercker, 100% containers native CI/CD environment Oracle Container Registry – Docker registry for all cloud native applications Oracle Container Engine – working horse of cloud applications – fast and reliable Kubernetes engine closely integrated with all other cloud services We kindly invite you to this webinar which will cover basics of Oracle’s Container Platform offering, the Next generation of the Containers in the Cloud, and demonstrate key advantages of running application in the modern containerized cloud environment.   Agenda: Oracle Container Native Application Development Platform Quick introduction to Docker and Kubernetes Overview of the process of building, testing and deploying using Oracle Container Pipelines Demonstration Summary – Q&A   Presenter:  Łukasz Romaszewski - Cloud IMC Consultant - Oracle Partner Hub Innovation & Modernization Center Poland Demo: Building and running a simple SpringBoot microservice using pipelines, registry and Kubernetes engine This FREE online LIVE eSeminar will be delivered over the Web.

Data Warehouse In The Cloud (DWaas)

Are you unable to scale your compute platform to meet the current growth in data , is it difficult to handle multiple data types in an era of IoT and Big data? All these questions will come up in your mind and distract you away from your business goals.  First let’s talk about Data warehouse (DWH) and what is your business needs from your enterprise data collection. DWH is a set centralized data repositories that integrate data from various transactional, legacy, or external systems, applications, and sources. The data warehouse provides an environment separate from the operational systems and is completely designed for decision-support, analytical-reporting, ad-hoc queries, and data mining. This isolation and optimization enables queries to be performed without any impact on the systems that support the business’ primary transactions (i.e transactional and operational systems) . So it's time to think about complete solution for consolidating and putting data to use with analytics that empower your entire organization to ask any questions of any data type at any given time. I think this is your primarily objective reaching that level of DWH perfection along with your data analysis capabilities. Let’s see what Oracle DW Cloud services can offer: Autonomous Database cloud service for Data warehouse - Fully automated database for self-tuning, patches , upgrade itself while the system is running and adaptive caching and indexing all powered by Oracle Exadata engineered infrastructure. Highly Elastic Compute platform - Prefigured compute and storage shapes can instantly scale up /Down. Built-in web-based SWL tool - Ready made tool optimized to run from your browser. Enterprise grade security - Data encrypted by default in the cloud as well as in transit. Today’s leading firms differentiate themselves through analytics, these pioneers leveraging their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources so let’s see what are the benefits behind a successful DW implementation. Best Decision-Making - Corporate decision makers will no longer have to make important business decisions based on limited data and hunches. Data warehouses store credible facts and statistics, and decision makers will be able to retrieve that information from the data warehouse based on their personal needs. In addition to making strategic decisions, a data warehouse can also assist in marketing segmentation, inventory management, financial management, and sales Quick and easy data access - Speed is an important factor that sets you above your competitors. Business users can quickly access data from multiple sources from a data warehouse, meaning that precious time won’t be wasted on retrieving data from multiple sources. This allows you to make quick and accurate decisions, with little or no support from your IT department. Data quality and consistency – Since data warehouses gather information from different sources and convert it into a single and widely used format, departments will produce results that are in line and consistent with each other. When data is standardized, you can have confidence in its accuracy, and accurate data is what makes for strong business decisions.
