Getting started with Kubernetes in the Oracle Cloud

In this blog post I am going to explain how to create and configure the Kubernetes Cluster in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Oracle offers its own service called Oracle Kubetnetes Engine (OKE).

As a prerequisite, a user must already exist in the cloud who has permission to create and manage the Kubernetes cluster in a compartment. The following policies are necessary to create, update and delete cluster components:

Allow group <group-name> to manage instance-family in <location>
Allow group <group-name> to use subnets in <location>
Allow group <group-name> to read virtual-network-family in <location>
Allow group <group-name> to use vnics in <location>
Allow group <group-name> to inspect compartments in <location>

For more information about users, groups and policies refer to my post Oracle OCI : Administer User, Groups, Compartments in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Part 2: Create the Oracle APEX Database in Amazon Relation Data Service (RDS)

This is the second part of my blog series about the installation and configuration an APEX database in the Amazon Cloud. Refer to following posts for the explanation of the whole solution:

Create the Virtual Private Cloud (Network) in AWS

At first, I will create my customer network in AWS.

In the AWS Console navigate to VPC and click on „Create VPC“. Specify the IPv4 IP Range (CIDR Block) and try „Create“:

Create Oracle APEX Environment in the Amazon Cloud with RDS: Part 1 – Overview

In this article I will describe the installation of APEX Environment in Amazon Web Service (AWS).

The whole environment includes following components:

  • AWS RDS: Oracle Database with activated APEX
  • VM (EC2 Container) with:
    • Oracle Rest Data Service (ORDS)
    • Apache Tomcat for the Hosting of the ORDS
    • Nginx: http Server

The major challenge is to install APEX without SYSDBA privilege, because the Oracle Database in the RDS is Vendor-Managed. Users cannot access the OS and do not have the database DBA role.

Blue Print of the APEX environment in the AWS:

In my next Posts I will cover the following topics:

Part 2: Create the APEX Database in Amazon Relation Data Service (RDS)

Part 3: Configure APEX with Oracle Rest Data Service (ORDS) in the new EC2 Container

Part 4: Configuration APEX with ORDS, Apache-Tomcat und Nginx

Part 3: Configure APEX with Oracle Rest Data Service (ORDS) in the new EC2 Container

In my previous blog posts, I have described how to create the customer Oracle Database in the RDS with APEX Component:

In this post, I will explain the configuration of Middleware components needed to present apex content in web. We will build the separate VM (EC2 Container) in AWS and configure following components: ORDS, Apache Tomcat und Nginx Server.

Oracle Forms & Reports 12.2.1.2.0: Create and Configure on the OEL 7.2 Server

Introduction

This post focuses on the creation, configuration and tuning of an initial Forms & Reports 12.2.1.2.0 Domain on the OEL 7.2 Server.

The WebLogic Server is a necessary requirement, and must already be installed. For instruction how to install the WebLogic Server 12.2.1.2 please refer to my previous post: WebLogic Server 12.2.1.2.0: Installation on the Linux OEL 7: step by step instruction

The following tasks will be implemented:

  • Preparing the Operating System for the installation of the WebLogic Server 12.2.1.2, Installation JDK 1.8 and the WebLogic Server 12.2.1.2:
  • Creating of database schemas
  • Installing and Configuring a Forms & Reports Domain
  • Post-Installation Tasks:
    • Configuring of components
    • Creating of Start & Stop scripts for the automatic start/stop of components
  • Tuning and Troubleshooting

The Domain will be created on the one OEL 7.2 server: host03.example.com (IP 192.168.75.35)

Installation Forms & Reports 12.2.1.2

SOA Suite 12.2.1.1.0: Create, configure and tune a SOA/OSB Domain

Introduction

This post focuses on the creation, configuration and tuning of an initial SOA Suite 12.2.1.1.0 Domain.

The WebLogic Server is a necessary requirement, and must already be installed. For instruction how to install the WebLogic Server 12.2.1.1 please refer to my previous post:  WebLogic Server 12.2.1.1.0: Installation on the Linux OS

The following tasks will be implemented:

  • Preparing the Operating System for the installation of the WebLogic Server 12.2.1.1, Installation JDK 1.8 and the WebLogic Server 12.2.1.1: WebLogic Server 12.2.1.1.0: Installation on the Linux OS
  • Creating of database schemas
  • Creating a SOA Suite Domain
  • Post-Installation Tasks:
    • Configuring of components
    • Creating of Start & Stop scripts for the automatic start/stop of components
  • SOA Suite Domain Tuning and Troubleshooting

The SOA/OSB Domain will be installed without BAM (different Domain) because of:

–    Oracle Best Practices and our experience

–    In order to stabilize the system (BAM is unstable at the moment)

The Domain will be created on two servers (OS OEL 6.7):

  • host01.example.com
  • host02.example.com

We will configure four clusters:

  • OWSM Cluster (Oracle Web Services Management)
  • ESS Cluster (Enterprise Scheduler Services)
  • SOA Cluster
  • OSB Cluster (Oracle Service Bus)

Installation SOA / OSB 12.2.1.1

Note: All tasks described in this chapter must be running on both servers: host01 and host02
