Creating an Oracle Database Cloud Service Deployment on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure


With my infrastructure resources in
place it’s time to provision an Oracle Database Cloud Service instance. I must
have this service in place before I can create a Java cloud service instance. Before getting started, I need to make sure I have available the following information from the infrastructure resources: The availability domain; the subnet from the VCN that I created on Oracle cloud infrastructure; the object storage bucket name; the Swift password; and the region I created with my Oracle
Cloud Infrastructure resources. Using my Oracle cloud credentials, I’ll log in to the My Services dashboard. From the Action menu for my Database Cloud Service account, I’ll select Open Service Console and, on the service console, launch the Provisioning Wizard by clicking Create Service. First, on the
Basic Service Information page I’ll give my Database instance a name. Then I’ll select the same region in which I created the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
resources earlier. Selecting the region spawns to additional required fields, the Availability Domain and the Subnet. I’ll select values for these fields based on
the information I recorded while creating the infrastructure resources Since I want to use the default values, for the rest of the subscription details, I’ll
click Next and move on to the service details page where I’ll enter critical
information about my service. First, I’ll create and confirm an administration password which I can use when I need to access the database administration
console. Then, I’ll select compute shape that will meet my load and processing
requirements. My options will include only the Oracle cloud infrastructure compute shapes. Next, I’ll insert an SSH public key, which
provides authentication when connecting to a node in my instance through a
secure shell client. I’ll click Edit to open the “Public Key Access for VM” dialog box and here click Choose file to open my local filesystem. I’ll select the public key and then click Open. Now I’ll click Enter… …and the public key
has been inserted. Next, I’ll assure I’m using both cloud storage and local
storage for any backups. For my Cloud Storage Container, I’ll enter
the URL for the Object Storage Bucket I created as one of my infrastructure
resources. This can be a rather long entry since I need to enter the full URL in this fixed format. The variables in this format are the region tenant and bucket. This is why I made sure to copy the name after I created the bucket. Now, I’ll enter the user name and the Swift password I generated earlier. And then accept the remaining defaults and click Next. I’ll verify the details my service paying particular attention to the
compute shape, region, availability domain, subnet, and the storage configuration. These all look fine so I’ll click Create. As it’s being prepared my new service
will appear the Database Cloud Service console. I can track provisioning progress here in the Service Create and Delete History panel, simply by clicking Detail. And I can see that my service instance has been successfully provisioned. now I can go to the overview page for my service and see more details about it. Thank you for watching “Creating a Database Cloud Service Deployment on
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure”. Now that I’ve created a database cloud service deployment I can use it to create a Java Cloud Service instance. To see a demonstration of this task, I invite you to watch “Creating a Java Cloud Service Instance on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure” And for more information about Oracle
