Importing SOA VM to Amazon Cloud – Part 1 by Grzegorz Lysko



Aldough Oracle is pushing it’s own cloud solutions agresivly there are still other cloud providers in the market that can be used to build similar functionality. Migration of existing infrastructure to the comercial cloud is a scenario worth considering. Today I will show how to use Amazon Cloud Services (AWS) to move an existing SOA suite VM to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). For this porpuose I will use a Oracle Pre-built Virtual Machine for SOA Suite 12.2.1 and import it to AWS. After the import I will create a running instance that can be used further deployment and development of integration solutions.

Prerequsites for the tasks

  1. Installed 7 zip
  2. Oracle VM Virtualbox
  3. Amazon web services account with administrative rights

Downloading and preparing the VM

Before importing the VM from oracle some adjustemnts have to be made for the import to succed. The main reason for the adjustment is the fact that the import task will not allow Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel. Also aldough previous versions where of the VM where in the OVA format the current version is in an OVF (Open Virtualization Format) package. For the amazon import OVA is better so after adjusting the VM i will prepare an OVA file.

  • Download the VM
  • After the download extract the files using 7 zip
Importing and starting the VM in Oracle VM Virtualbox
  • Start Oracle VM VirtualBox
