1 Get Started with Administration

Let’s explore Oracle Analytics Cloud and what you need to know to get started with deployment and administration on APAC data regions, such as Tokyo.

Note:

This Guide is for administrators deploying Oracle Analytics Cloud on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in APAC data regions, such as Tokyo.

The way you deploy and manage Oracle Analytics Cloud depends on the region, type, and start date of your subscription. If you subscribed to Oracle Analytics Cloud prior to October 2019 or have access to data regions in North America and Europe, the deployment process is different. See Administering Oracle Analytics Cloud (North America and Europe).

About Oracle Analytics Cloud

Oracle Analytics Cloud is a scalable and secure public cloud service that provides capabilities to explore and perform collaborative analytics for you, your workgroup, and your enterprise.

Oracle Analytics Cloud is available on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in several APAC regions when you subscribe through Universal Credits. You can subscribe to Professional Edition or Enterprise Edition.

When you deploy Oracle Analytics Cloud, you complete some initial setup steps, and then Oracle takes care of most service management, patching, backup and restore, and other maintenance tasks. You can determine the size of your service when you set up the service, that is, the number of Oracle Compute Units (OCPUs) you want to deploy.

For information about editions and features available, see Getting Started with Oracle Analytics Cloud.

Region Availability

Initially, Oracle Analytics Cloud is available in several Asia-Pacific (APAC) launch regions starting with Japan East (Tokyo), and Australia East (Sydney). Thereafter, Oracle Analytics Cloud will be available in other regions.

For the latest information on availability in regions, see Data Regions for Platform and Infrastructure Services.

Service Limits

Oracle Analytics Cloud has various default limits. Whenever you create an Oracle Analytics Cloud instance or scale up, the system ensures that your request is within the bounds of your limit. The limit that applies to you depends on which edition you subscribe to: Professional Edition or Enterprise Edition.

When you sign up for a trial, the default limit is 4 OCPUs (Professional Edition and Enterprise Edition).

Resource Limit Limit Short Name Default Value (Universal Credits) Default Value (Trials) Description
Professional Edition OCPUs se-ocpu-count 4 4 Maximum number of OCPUs available with Oracle Analytics Cloud Professional Edition.
Enterprise Edition OCPUs ee-ocpu-count 12 4 Maximum number of OCPUs available with Oracle Analytics Cloud Enterprise Edition.

You can submit a request to increase your limits from Limits, Quotas, and Usage page in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.

See About Service Limits and Usage.

Service Quotas

You can use quotas to determine how other users allocate Oracle Analytics Cloud resources across compartments in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Whenever you create an Oracle Analytics Cloud instance or scale up, the system ensures that your request is within the bounds of the quota for that compartment.

The quota that you use to allocate Oracle Analytics Cloud resources depends on which edition you subscribe to: Professional Edition or Enterprise Edition.

Quota Name Scope Description
se-ocpu-count Regional Number of Professional Edition OCPUs.
ee-ocpu-count Regional Number of Enterprise Edition OCPUs.

Example Quota Statements for Oracle Analytics Cloud

  • Limit the number of Oracle Analytics Cloud Professional Edition OCPUs that users can allocate to services they create in MyDVCompartment to 2.

    set analytics quota se-ocpu-count to 2 in compartment MyDVCompartment

  • Limit the number of Oracle Analytics Cloud Enterprise Edition OCPUs that users can allocate to services they create in MyEnterpriseCompartment to 10.

    set analytics quota ee-ocpu-count to 10 in compartment MyEnterpriseCompartment

  • Don't allow users to create any Oracle Analytics Cloud Enterprise Edition services in MyTestCompartment.

    zero analytics quota ee-ocpu-count in compartment MyTestCompartment

See About Compartment Quotas.

Service Events

Actions that you perform on Oracle Analytics Cloud instances emit events.

You can define rules that trigger a specific action when an event occurs. For example, you might define a rule that sends a notification to administrators when someone deletes an instance. See Overview of Events and Get Started with Events.

This table lists the Oracle Analytics Cloud events that you can reference.

Before You Begin with Oracle Analytics Cloud

When you order Oracle Analytics Cloud through Universal Credits, you automatically get access to other required services, including Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle Identity Cloud Service.

Here’s some information about how Oracle Analytics Cloud uses other services and what you need to do if you’re setting up Oracle Analytics Cloud for the first time.

Service What is it for? Do I need to do anything?
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management You use compartments within your tenancy to organize resources on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Yes.

Before you create your first Oracle Analytics Cloud instance, Oracle recommends that you set up one or more compartments in which you can deploy and secure your cloud resources.

Oracle Identity Cloud Service

Your Oracle Analytics Cloud tenancy on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is automatically federated with Oracle Identity Cloud Service.

You use Oracle Identity Cloud Service to create user accounts for the people in your organization who will use Oracle Analytics Cloud.

You can also give users permissions to set up Oracle Analytics Cloud.

Yes.

You add users and groups and give them access to Oracle Analytics Cloud services.

You can add users and groups before you create the Oracle Analytics Cloud instance or after; you can decide. See Set Up Users, Groups, and Application Roles.
