On May 7th we announced the General Availability (GA) version of the WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator, including certification of WebLogic Server and Operator configurations running on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). In this initial announcement, WebLogic Server and Operator OCI certification was provided on Kubernetes clusters created on OCI using the Terraform Kubernetes Installer. For more details on this announcement, please refer to the announcement blog Announcing General Availability version of the WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator.
Today we are announcing the additional certification of WebLogic Server and Operator configurations on the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes running on OCI, please see blog Kubernetes: A Cloud (and Data Center) Operating System?. The Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes is a fully-managed, scalable, and highly available service that you can use to deploy your containerized applications to the cloud.
In the blog How to run WebLogic clusters on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes, we describe the steps to run a WebLogic domain/cluster managed by the WebLogic Kubernetes Operator running on OCI Container Engine for Kubernetes with WebLogic and Operator images stored in the OCI Registry.
Very soon, we hope to provide an easy way to migrate existing WebLogic Server domains in Kubernetes using the WebLogic Deploy Tooling, add CI/CD of WebLogic deployments on Kubernetes with Oracle Container Pipelines, and add new features and enhancements over time. The WebLogic Server and Operator capabilities described are supported on standard Kuberntes infrastructure with full compatibility between OCI, and other private and public cloud platforms that use Kubernetes. The Operator, Prometheus Exporter, and WebLogic Deploy Tooling are all being developed in open source. We are open to your feedback – thanks!
