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.

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:

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.

Thirteen New E-Business 12.1.1 Database-Tier Only Certifications for 10gR2

Our Applications Platforms Group has just released a flurry of new platform certifications for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 for the 10gR2 10.2.0.4 Database Server.  The following operating systems are now certified for database-tier only deployments:
  • Sun Solaris x86-64 (Solaris 10) 
  • IBM: Linux on System z (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise System 9 and 10)
  • IBM: Linux on Power Systems (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise System 9 and 10)
  • Linux Itanium (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise System 9 and 10)
These database-tier only platforms were previously certified with E-Business Suite 12.0 and 10gR2.  Customers running those combinations can now apply the 12.1.1 Maintenance Pack to upgrade their application tier to EBS 12.1.1 while running the 10gR2 database on one of the above platforms.

This is a database-tier only certification (previously known as a 'split configuration database tier' certification), where the application tier must be on a fully certified E-Business Suite R12 platform.

Still Underway


The certification of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 with Windows 2003 (x64) and Windows Itanium as database tier-only platforms is still underway.  I don't have firm schedules for this certification yet, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.

Tablespace Encryption 11.1.0.7 Certified with EBS 12

Oracle Advanced Security is an optional licenced Oracle 11gR1 Database add-on.  Oracle Advanced Security Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) offers two different features:  column encryption and tablespace encryption.  We certified the TDE column encryption feature with the E-Business Suite last year.  We're pleased to expand our 11gR1 Database certification to include the tablespace encryption feature.  This option was recently certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i, and now Tablespace Encryption 11.1.0.7 is certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12, too.

What is Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) ?

Advanced_Security_Overview.gif

Oracle Advanced Security Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) allows you to protect data at rest. TDE helps address privacy and PCI requirements by encrypting personally identifiable information (PII) such as Social Security numbers and credit card numbers.

TDE is completely transparent to existing applications with no triggers, views or other application changes required. Data is transparently encrypted when written to disk and transparently decrypted after an application user has successfully authenticated and passed all authorization checks. Authorization checks include verifying the user has the necessary select and update privileges on the application table and checking Database Vault, Label Security and Virtual Private Database enforcement policies.

Existing database backup routines will continue to work, with the data at rest remaining encrypted in the backup. For encryption of entire database backups, TDE can be used in combination with Oracle RMAN.

What is Tablespace Encryption ? TDE_Key_Management_Architecture.png

New in Oracle Database 11g Release 1, the Oracle Advanced Security now includes support for tablespace encryption.

When a tablespace is created through Enterprise Manager or on the command line, an option now exists to specify that the file be encrypted on the file system. When new data is added to the new tablespace using the insert command or datapump, entire tables will be transparently encrypted. When the database reads data blocks from the encrypted tablespace it will transparently decrypt the data blocks.

With this certification, Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 environments can be migrated to encrypted tablespaces. For more information, please refer to:

Prerequisites

  • Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 version 12.0.4 or higher

Platforms certified for 12

  • Linux x86 (32-bit)
  • Linux x86-64 (64 bit)
  • Sun Solaris SPARC (64-bit)
  • IBM AIX Based Systems (64-bit)
  • HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit)
  • HP-UX Itanium
  • Microsoft Windows Server(32-bit)
