Check out the updated Enterprise Deployment Guide and the new Enterprise Deployment Workbook for Oracle Analytics Server (OAS).

Enterprise Deployment Guide:

The Enterprise Deployment Guide (EDG) provides detailed, validated instructions that help you plan, prepare, install, and configure a multi-host, secure, highly available, production topology for selected Oracle Fusion Middleware products. An updated copy is located in the Books section of the Oracle Analytics Server (OAS) Library.

It is important to understand the tasks that need to be performed to prepare for an enterprise deployment. Check out the new section related to the Enterprise Deployment Workbook that can help you with your deployment.

What is the Enterprise Deployment Workbook?

The Enterprise Deployment Workbook is a spreadsheet that is used by architects, system engineers, database administrators, and others to plan and record all the details for an environment installation (such as server names, URLs, port numbers, installation paths, and other resources).

The Oracle Analytics Server Enterprise Deployment workbook is available as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet in the Oracle Fusion Middleware documentation library. It is available as a link on the Oracle Analytics Server page of the library.

The Enterprise Deployment workbook serves as a single document that you can use to track input variables for the entire process, allowing for:

  • Separation of tasks between architects, system engineers, database administrators, and other key organizational roles.
  • Comprehensive planning before the implementation.
  • Validation of planned decisions before the actual implementation.
  • Consistency during implementation.
  • A record of the environment for future use.


Typical Use Case for Using the Workbook

It is important to understand the roles and tasks involved in a typical use case of the Enterprise Deployment workbook.
