Running Oracle E-Business Suite on Exalogic Elastic Cloud

[Dec. 10, 2010 update:  Clarified EBS R12-only compatibility with Exalogic. Exalogic does not offer 32-bit OS support. Since Release 11i runs on 32-bit Linux only, it cannot be deployed on Exalogic.]

We unveiled the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud at OpenWorld 2010.  Oracle Exalogic is an engineered system comprising both hardware and software components, providing an application tier server complement for the Oracle Exadata Database Machine.

exalogic architecture diagram with picture of Exalogic server tower exalogic_architecture.png
Since then, we've been receiving a steady series of questions about the feasibility of running Oracle E-Business Suite on Exalogic servers.  Our position on Exalogic application compatibility is straightforward and the same as for Exadata: Exalogic is 100% compatible with all standard Oracle Linux 5 and Solaris 11 applications. No special certification for Exalogic is required - all Oracle applications that are certified for the appropriate releases of Oracle Linux and Solaris are supported on Exalogic.

E-Business Suite runs on Exalogic

Oracle E-Business Suite releases that are certified on 64-bit Oracle Linux 5.x (which includes several versions of R12, 12.1) are supported on Exalogic.  Exalogic does not offer 32-bit OS support, and since Release 11i runs on 32-bit Linux only, it cannot be deployed on Exalogic.

We are finding that many customers are interested in consolidating existing Oracle software into an Exalogic environment.  For the E-Business Suite, keep in mind that existing versions of EBS would be installed as a full stack (including Oracle Application Server 10g), just as they are today on any other 64-bit Oracle Linux 5 (on x86-64) machine.  However, older Oracle Application Server releases are not optimized for the Exalogic environment and therefore will not be able to take advantage of some of the performance benefits of the system in the same manner as applications running on the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g stack.

E-Business Suite environments running on Exalogic derive other benefits of the updated kernel, including bug fixes, enhanced security, and data integrity features.  For more information about the updated kernal, see:

EBS R12 Sparse Mid-Tier Template for Oracle VM Now Available

Yes, it's true: the title is not a typo. We have an Oracle VM (OVM) template that works against any E-Business Suite Release 12 version.  It works against your current E-Business Suite Release 12 installs, whether physical or virtual.

Instructions for downloading these new templates are here:

Screenshot of edelivery page for sparse Oracle VM downloads for ebs R12 application tier images sparseOVM.jpg
We listened to you: you wanted a small OVM template, and this one is small at around ~600MB.

How does this work?

On first boot, OracleVM machines based on this template will prompt for an exported Linux EBS shared file system location. They will mount it and create an Apps middle tier node which you can use to scale up your existing EBS instance or to start a new instance.

If you have development or testbed environments where you can re-use the database, this template is an easy way to create new Linux middle tiers.

Your Feedback is Welcome

We're extremely interested in hearing about your use cases and your experiences with our new templates and virtualization kit.  Tell us what you think via our new OVM Templates discussion forum.

11gR2 11.2.0.2 Database Certified with E-Business Suite

[Jan 20, 2011 Update: Removed erroneous Linux x86-64 SLES 9 database tier reference]

[Nov 18, 2010 Update: Added HP-UX Itanium to the EBS 11i list of pending certifications]


We certified the 11gR2 11.2.0.1 Database with E-Business Suite 11i and EBS 12 late in 2009.  It's taken a little longer than we had hoped to certify 11.2.0.2, the first patchset for the 11gR2 Database.  The reasons: the release cycle for 11.2.0.2 overlapped with our EBS 12.1.3 release cycle, and some of the ports for this patchset weren't released until just before Halloween.  Our Server Technologies team is as-yet working on other ports, too.

I know that some of you have been eager to apply this latest patchset to your E-Business Suite databases, so I'm very pleased to announce that Oracle Database 11gR2 Patchset 1 Version 11.2.0.2 is now certified with the E-Business Suite.

E-Business Suite 12 Now Available on Linux on IBM System z

logo_ibm.jpg
Every new E-Business Suite release, patch, roll-up patchset, Family Pack, Consolidated Update, or technology stack certification needs to be tested on every platform that we support for the E-Business Suite.  This is a lot of work.  My teams test on the base Oracle Enterprise Linux platform, and Terri Noyes' Applications Platforms Group tests everything on all of the other operating systems that we support.

As you can imagine, it is very big news when we expand our E-Business Suite operating system portfolio to include a new platform.  This always constitutes a major new commitment to that platform. 

This is why we are pleased to announce that the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 is now available on a new fully certified EBS platform - Linux on IBM System z. This IBM platform (i.e. Linux running on an IBM mainframe) is also known as 'Linux on System z' and appears in our Oracle systems (My Oracle Support, aru, bug, etc.) as 'IBM: Linux on System z'.

The Linux on System z platform was previously a 'database tier only' platform (for EBS 11i and 12.0) and will continue to be supported as such on those releases. With this announcement for 12.1, we are supporting the platform as a fully certified EBS platform (i.e. for both application and database tiers).

The release is based on the 12.1.2 EBS codeline and includes a Rapid Install wizard to support new installations as well as 11i upgrades (from a certified EBS 11i platform) to Release 12 on Linux on System z. This first release includes the Oracle Database 10gR2 on the database tier, and Application Server versions 10gR2 and 10gR3.

Various technology certifications are planned as well for the currently available versions of technology products on the platform (such as 10.1.2.3 OID/SSO, 10.1.2.3 Discoverer, AS 10gR3 Patchset 5, etc.) or those expected at some point in the future (such as Oracle Database 11gR2). Separate announcements for these certifications will be sent out as they become available.

The operating systems certified with EBS on this platform are:
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) version 5 (64-bit)
  • Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) version 9 (64-bit)
  • Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) version 10 (64-bit)
Please review the documents below for all requirements and additional details on the use of EBS Release 12 on IBM: Linux on System z. All general documentation pertaining to EBS Release 12.1.1 (such as the Rapid Install Guide and the Upgrade Guide) are relevant as well to this release of 12.1.2 as the general functionality of EBS is the same on this platform.

The release is available now on our public edelivery web site for download.

Database 10gR2 10.2.0.5 Certified with E-Business Suite

With the July 4 weekend coming up, it's nice to wrap up the week with a bang.  This final announcement for the week is cause for celebration.

Oracle Database 10gR2 10.2.0.5 is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i (11.5.10.2) and Release 12 (12.0.4 or higher; 12.1.1 or higher).  The 10.2.0.5 database patchset is the terminal release for the 10gR2 codeline. 

Premier Support for 10gR2 ends July 31, 2010

We've covered this several times already, but it never hurts to keep reminding you that Premier Support for the 10gR2 (10.2) database ends on July 31, 2010.

Regular readers may recall that fees for the first year of Extended Support for the 10gR2 database are waived. There is nothing that customers need to do to remain fully supported other than keep your support contracts current. Higher fees for Extended Support will start August 1, 2011 for most platforms.

This is formally documented in two different places, for those of you who appreciate convergent validation:
If you haven't already done so, I strongly recommend that you review the following article to understand the support implications for E-Business Suite environments:
If you are considering upgrade paths for your EBS environment from 10gR2, you have the choice of either 11gR1 (11.1) or 11gR2 (11.2).  For the longest Premier Support coverage, choose 11gR2.  Here's a snapshot of our EBS database roadmap as of today:

Snapshot of E-Business Suite database certification roadmap as of July 2010 showing end of premier support dates for each database release
