"From this day forward, Oracle Database deployment will never be the same"

....just because in about 7~20 minutes you will have a fully functional Single Instance Oracle Database on any Oracle Cloud Infrastructure shape, BareMetal included!!!

I'm so pleased and honored to announce the "Oracle Database" availability in the "Oracle Cloud MarketPlace".

By leveraging the "Oracle Database" you will have the option to automatically deploy a fully functional Database environment by pasting a simple cloud-config script; the deployment allows for basic customization of the environment, further configurations, like adding extra disks, NICs, is always possible post-deployment.

The framework allows for simple cleanup and re-deployment, via the Marketplace interface (terminate instance and re-launch), or cleanup the Instance within and re-deploy the same Instance with changed settings (see Usage Info below).

To easily introduce to the different customization options, available with the "Oracle Database" we also created a dedicated document with examples on the Oracle Database customization deployment.

The deployed Instance will be based on the following software stack:

  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Native Instance
  • Oracle Linux 7.6
  • UEK5 (Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, release 5)
  • Oracle Database 12cR2 or Oracle Database 18c
