Exadata Insights application within Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Operations Insights service now has support for Oracle Exadata Database Service on Dedicated Infrastructure in the Oracle public cloud.
Exadata Insights provides a holistic view of all Exadata systems across your enterprise (on-premises and cloud) to help you optimize their capacity for your proactive planning and database consolidation use cases.
OCI Operations Insights enables business executives, database professionals, or those in IT Ops or DevOps roles to make informed, data-driven compute resource, and performance management decisions. Key Operations Insights Exadata Insights capabilities include:
Using the latest enhancements, you can now analyze Exadata resource utilization to identify spare capacity suitable for new workloads that can be fully managed on OCI (Oracle Database 19c and greater).
Using the Capacity Planning capability for Exadata systems you can perform:
Communication between the Operations Insights service and Exadata Cloud Infrastructure uses the Private Endpoint technology. The Private Endpoint is a representation of OPSI in the VCN in which the Oracle Cloud Database can be accessed and acts as a VNIC using private IP addresses in a subnet of your choice. While the Private Endpoint does not need to be on the same subnet as the Oracle Cloud Database, it must be on a subnet that can communicate with the Oracle Cloud Database. The Private Endpoint enables the data transfer from Exadata Cloud Infrastructure and its respective databases into Operations Insights-owned Autonomous Data Warehouse and enables Operations Insights Exadata Insights and Capacity Planning capabilities.
Once a Private Endpoint has been created to communicate with the Exadata Cloud Infrastructure residing in your private Virtual Cloud Network (VCN), an Exadata system can be added to utilize that endpoint. To do that, navigate to the Administration and then Exadata Fleet menu and select the Cloud Infrastructure icon Exadata Cloud Service.
Once the Exadata system has been added and enabled in Operations Insights, it is then ready to be utilized by Exadata Insights service for resource utilization and capacity planning.
