This is the second installment of the series "Oracle's Property Graph Database in Shining Armor." In this blog, I am going to talk about setting up the property graph database on Oracle Cloud, and specifically, Oracle Database Cloud Service - Bare Metal.
The database creation is straightforward. Just login to OCI with your credential (a screenshot as follows). Click on Database tab, and follow the UI. I must say the UI is really intuitive and easy to use. I did not read a single page of documentation and I managed to get a 18.104.22.168 database up and running in a few minutes.
Note that in order to use the property graph feature in Oracle Spatial and Graph, you can choose either Oracle Database 12.2 or 18.1. Once your database is installed, write down the IP address and of course the database name.
The following screenshot shows the DB info, shape, and the public IP (masked out). For performance, I selected Bare Metal (BM DenseIO).
And you can find Database Unique Name in the Databases section. In my setup, the unique name is graph_phx1hc, highlighted below.
In a follow up blog, I am going to talk about a few simple configurations required to get the property graph functions ready for business.
