We’re excited to announce that Oracle Enterprise Manager (EM) 13.5 is now available as an app on Oracle Cloud Marketplace. That means customers who are interested in trying the latest version of EM 13.5 without having to provision on-premises hardware have an easy path to start working with a fully-configured, updated EM instance with minimal installation effort.
Why is this important?
In the past, Oracle Enterprise Manager has provided application-to-disk management for the Oracle stack and especially Oracle Database environments. Over the years, customers have repeatedly asked us for simple ways to try out the latest-and-greatest EM environments without starting a large IT project on-premises. Customers have been anxiously awaiting a new version Oracle Enterprise Manager app that will provide a simple, easy-to-use "test drive" environment at their fingertips!
This latest release of the app makes it possible to quickly deploy both test-drive and production application environments of Enterprise Manger with just a few clicks.
This version of the Oracle Enterprise Manager App includes:
To get to the new App, sign in to OCI, navigate to the OCI Main Menu and then to Marketplace. Search for "Oracle Enterprise Manager" and click on Oracle Enterprise Manager.

This version of the App 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 deployment of both EM and its underlying infrastructure in a variety of shapes and sizes, as shown in Figure 3. This eliminates the need for prerequisite steps. It also means that a simple, easy-to-follow workflow, quickly deploys Enterprise Manager with Oracle Management Server (OMS) and OMR or separate nodes, as well as load balancing across multiple OMSs . Refer to Figure 4 for a sample multi-node architecture. You can extend your multi-OMS environment to a Level 3 High Availability setup by also configuring Data Guard with your repository database.
