Oracle EBS virtualization process overview

The following material introduces you to the overall process of deploying the Oracle EBS virtualization solution. A sequence of high-level steps is presented; each step briefly describes the task and the expected result. Refer to the embedded links for more detailed information. 

  • Begin by reviewing the general Delphix Continuous Data Engine architecture diagrams. Identify existing or new Oracle EBS source and target Environments, the underlying Operating Systems, and Oracle EBS versions. This will give a good understanding of the architectural strategy and confirm support. 

  • Reviewing the Oracle EBS Support Matrix. Confirm that your combination of Oracle EBS software, host operating system, Delphix Engine version and Oracle EBS connector version are supported for the various environments which will integrate into your Oracle EBS deployment. Early validation will reduce unexpected issues later.

  • Deploy and configure Delphix Continuous Data.

  • Installing the Oracle EBS connector. The Oracle EBS connectors extend the Delphix Continuous Data Engine to Oracle EBS datasets. It is recommended to stay current with the latest version of the connector.

  • Preparing source and creating target environments. Prepare source and create the target hosts and ensure that they are running and reachable. Follow the host requirements to configure the respective environments. The source environment is the R12.2 E-Business Suite that the Delphix Continuous Data Engine will ingest from. The target environment will host one or more EBS instance(s) in which the virtual database copies will be created.

    1. Consult the source environment and target environment requirements documentation for configuration details.

  • Discovering source and target environments in the Delphix Continuous Data engine. Use the "Add Environment" operation in Delphix Continuous Data Engine for each host, which causes Delphix to register the specific host and catalog the EBS software installation(s) on that host.

  • Linking the source database. Configure and create a dSource which allows the Delphix Continuous Data Engine to capture a copy of the source data. There are many ingestion methods that can offer a variety of methods to capture the data to be virtualized by Delphix. Therefore, we encourage you to identify the ingestion method that best suits your organization and infrastructure policies.

  • Provisioning virtual EBS dataset. Administrators and users can provision multiple copies of the source data as virtual copies.
