EM 13.5 Release Update 5 image on OCI Marketplace supports both single-node (collapsed install) and multi-node configurations using an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Resource Manager Stack.  The use of the OCI Resource Manager Stack allows you to deploy both EM and its underlying infrastructure in a variety of shapes and sizes and eliminates the need for pre-requisite steps.  An easy-to-follow workflow allows you to quickly deploy Enterprise Manager with separation of the Oracle Management Server (OMS) and OMR and load balance it across multiple OMSs.  Refer to Figure 3 for the single node EM deployment architecture on a Private subnet with Bastion host.

Refer to Figure 4 for the Multi-node deployment architecture with the Load Balancer in Private subnet. You can extend your multi-OMS environment to a Level 3 High Availability setup by configuring Data Guard for your repository database.

Let us see how to quickly provision a ‘Simple’ Deployment type which is a ‘Single Node’ install of EM on OCI.

The 'Single Node' setup is supported with two options:

  • Instance (EM & DB) placed in Public Subnet
  • Instance (EM & DB) placed in Private Subnet. (This deploys an additional bastion host for connectivity and management purposes)


1.    On the Configure Variables section, select the Deployment Size as Simple. Fill in all the parameters as per your network requirements.

2.    Choose the Subnet type as Public / Private to switch between the setup options.
3.    Fill in the Bastion Host details, if you choose ‘Private Subnet’ option.
4.    Proceed to the Review page. Review the inputs and variables select Create. Make sure Run Apply is checked for direct deployment.

Get started today!

To follow the comprehensive installation and configuration guide, see Setting Up Oracle Enterprise Manager 13.5 on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The total time to complete the setup is approximately 20 minutes for a Single node and approximately 3 hours for a multi-Node deployment. We hope you leverage this capability to quickly and easily deploy Oracle Enterprise Manager 13.5 in Oracle Cloud!

Be sure to follow the appropriate Oracle Enterprise Manager licensing applicable to your environment.
