Our most awaited training Oracle E-Business Suite (R12) on Cloud for Apps DBAs started with 25 Attendees (We limited this to 25 as this is our first batch).
Oracle E-Business Suite (R12) on Cloud is comprehensive Training for Apps DBAs, DBAs or Beginners who want to learn Oracle E-Business Suite R12 on Cloud covering Provisioning, Management, Backup & Recovery, High Availability, Lift & Shift etc
b) Pizza Delivered represents PaaS
c) Dined Out represents SaaS
Below are some handful queries asked by Trainees in very interactive session and worth sharing:
Q: Do we need to understand separate classes for Database as a Services (DBaaS), if we need managing EBS DB?
A: Oracle EBS (R12) on Oracle Cloud can be configured on IaaS or PaaS. If EBS Database is deployed on PaaS (DBCS/DBaaS) then you should learn and understand DBCS or DBaaS (Database as a Service)
Q: How is DBCS different than DBaaS?
A: DBCS stands for Database Cloud Service and DBaaS stands for Database as a Service. Oracle’s DBCS contains four main services
a) Database Schema Service where you get fully managed database Schema as part PDB (Pluggable Database)
b) Database as a Service (DBaaS) complete database with O.S. Access – this is most common and widely used
c) Exadata Cloud Service – Database running on Exadata Machine (Oracle’s Engineered System) for mission critical applications
d) Database Backup Service – Backup solution for On-Premise and Cloud Database
We cover this and lot more in Module 3 of Cloud DBA Training http://k21academy.com/cloud
Q: In Oracle PaaS SOA CS, middleware RCU will be maintained by Client or Oracle?
A: Oracle’s SOA Cloud Service uses DBCS in for Database Schema and RCU (Repository Creation Utility) is handled by Oracle.
Q: What on Hybrid Cloud?
A: Hybrid Cloud depending on context can be
a) Some EBS Environment (like PROD & OAT) running on Cloud while other EBS Environments (DEV, TEST or DR) running on Cloud
b) Some applications running on One Cloud vendor (Oracle HCM/Financials) while other applications running on other Cloud Vendor (SalesForce or Workday)
Q: Is Oracle Fusion – SaaS or PaaS?
A: Oracle Fusion is SaaS and there is not much role of Cloud Apps DBA, apart from integration with OAM/SSO for Federation or Data Export/Import. EBS on Cloud is IaaS or IaaS with PaaS and there will be lot of work for Oracle Apps DBA so it’s time to learn Cloud Apps DBA http://k21academy.com/ebs-
Q: Is it possible to EBS DB on PaaS and Application node on Premise?
A: Technically this is possible via VPN but because of Latency this should be avoided. More common is primary Apps & DB on premise while DR is on Oracle Cloud
Overall, it was a fantastic session and got very good feedback. All are now excited to learn Cloud technology and transform from Apps DBA/DBA to Cloud Apps DBA.
Stay tuned for the further session. Many things to learn in Oracle Cloud!!
