Automating the Provisioning of Oracle SOA Suite on AWS by Fabio Douek

image1. Overview

Rubicon Red MyST delivers automated platform provisioning and continuous delivery for Oracle Middleware, enabling users to deliver a consistent and reliable platform in minutes.

MyST also provides infrastructure independence; enabling customers to deploy consistent middleware platforms across all infrastructure types: on-premise and various cloud providers including Oracle and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

In this post we will show how to provision an Oracle SOA Suite environment within minutes on AWS.

If you want to use an AWS Oracle RDS instance, you can follow the instructions in this post: http://blog.rubiconred.com/configuring-amazon-rds-as-the-oracle-soa-suite-database/ .

Alternatively, you can provision against an Oracle database running on an AWS EC2 instance.

We will provision the following, using the standards defined in the Oracle Enterprise Deployment Guide (EDG):

  • A two node cluster environment
  • OFMW Components: SOA, OSB, WSM, BPM, OHS

We will use MyST Studio to:

  • Discover the AWS resources, and define our Infrastructure Provider
  • Define the Platform Blueprint
  • Define the Platform Model
  • Provision two EC2 instances On-Demand
  • Provision Oracle Fusion Middleware:
    • Install the required binaries
    • Run RCU to create the database objects against RDS
    • Create the WebLogic Domain
    • Apply the Oracle EDG recommended configurations, which is a MyST knowledge module

Security Groups:

A security group allows us to control access to specific inbound/outbound ports, as well as restrict access based on source address.

The following table details the Security groups we are using for the purpose of this blog post: Read the complete article here.
