We are proud to announce the updated Images for Oracle Database on Oracle Cloud Marketplace.

Oracle Database Images for Oracle Cloud provide a fast and easy way of deploying a Single Instance Oracle Database or an Oracle Restart (SIHA) on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, for test and production environments.

The automation is driven by the same framework that powers the decade long Oracle VM Templates for Oracle Database which have thousands of downloads and customers using it.

Automatically deploy a fully functional Database environment by pasting a simple cloud-config script. The deployment allows for basic customization of the environment, further configurations, like adding extra disks, NICs, is possible post-deployment and the framework allows for simple cleanup and re-deployment.

This updated release includes ALL the latest bits for Oracle Database Releases:

  •, and patched to October 2019 PSU/RU (.191015)
    • Oracle Linux release 7 Update 7
    • Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 5 Update 2

Same updated images are also available, on-premise, as Oracle VM Templates for the Oracle Database and further information are available on "VM Templates for Oracle Database" webpage; additional Oracle Database Template releases for Oracle VM are also available and details can be found in the My Oracle Support Note ID 1185244.1

Oracle VM Templates for Oracle Database provide a framework that automates the creation of a Single Instance, Oracle Restart (Single Instance/HA), or an Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) configuration in an Oracle VM environment. In a matter of minutes, the versatile and powerful Oracle VM Templates for Oracle Database can be cloned into any number of VMs and deployed as a Single Instance, Oracle Restart (Single Instance/HA) or Oracle Real Application Cluster instance.

Both solutions, based on same kind of automation, can really help to build your automation for Hybrid Cloud solution for the Oracle Database.
