Spring 2020 Update to Oracle Enterprise Manager App on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and New Multi Node Configurations Now Available

Dan Koloski
Vice President

We are happy to report that the latest update to the Oracle Enterprise Manager App on the OCI Marketplace is now available!

As regular readers of this blog know, we have been striving to make it easier for our customers to consume the latest-and-greatest EM environments without starting a large IT project on-premises.  The latest release of the app makes it possible to quickly deploy both test-drive and production application environments with a few clicks. 

This version of the Oracle Enterprise Manager App includes:

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager 13.4, Release Update 1 (April 2020 Release)
  • The Oracle Management Repository (OMR) now supports the option to deploy on a RAC 19.6 Multitenant Database
  • The OMR is encrypted out-of-the-box with TDE (Transparent Data Encryption), ensuring data safety on the Cloud
  • Stack update:  Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.8u241
  • Operating system on all hosts is Oracle Linux 7.7

To get to the new App, sign in to OCI, and from the OCI Main Menu navigate to Marketplace. Search for "Oracle Enterprise Manager" and click on Oracle Enterprise Manager. For easier access you can filter by Type: Stack.

In addition, we're excited to let you know that 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 you to deploy both EM and its underlying infrastructure in a variety of shapes and sizes, which eliminates the need for pre-requisite steps and also means that with a simple, easy-to-follow workflow, you can quickly deploy Oracle Enterprise Manager with separation of OMS and OMR as well as load balancing across multiple OMSs.  You can extend your multi-OMS environment to a Level 3 High Availability setup by also configuring Data Guard with your repository database.

To get you started, we've compiled a comprehensive installation and configuration guide -- see Setting Up Oracle Enterprise Manager 13.4 on Oracle Cloud InfrastructureThe total time (attended plus unattended time) to complete the setup is approximately 20 minutes for Single node and approximately 3 hours for a Multi-Node deployment.
