Create an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure Resource

You create an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resource from the Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure page.

  1. Go to Autonomous Transaction Processing in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.

    For instructions, see Access Autonomous Transaction Processing in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.

  2. In the side menu’s list of Autonomous Transaction Processing resource types, click Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure.

    The list of Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resources in your current Compartment is displayed.

  3. In the side menu’s Compartment list, choose the Compartment where you want to create an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resource.

    The list of Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resources refreshes to show those in the selected Compartment.

  4. Click Create Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure.

  5. On the Create Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure page, enter the following:

    • Select a compartment: Confirm that the Compartment listed is the one in which you want to create the Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resource.

    • Display name: A user-friendly description or other information that helps you easily identify the resource. The display name does not have to be unique, and you can change it whenever you like.

    • Select an availability domain: Choose the availability domain where you want the resource placed.

    • Select a shape: Choose the type of Oracle Exadata Database Machine you want the allocate to this resource.

      Note: Exadata.Quarter2.92 (92 OCPUs) is the only shape currently available.

      For capacity information about the available shapes, see Characteristics of Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure Resources.

    • Configure the network settings: Choose the Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) in which to launch this Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resource, first changing Compartments to the one hosting the VCN if necessary. Then, choose the Subnet to which this Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resource is to attach, first changing Compartments to the one hosting the Subnet if necessary. Do not use a subnet that overlaps with 141.144.75.0/24.

    • Configure the automatic maintenance schedule: to configure a preferred maintenance schedule, click Modify Schedule and then select Specify a Schedule.

      Choose the months when Oracle can schedule maintenance. You must select at least one month in each quarter. Then select the week, weekday within that week and hour within that day when Oracle can begin performing maintenance operations on this Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resource. When you are finished, click Update Maintenance Schedule.

    • Choose a license type: Choose the type of license to use for Autonomous Transaction Processing Databases created on this Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resource.

  6. If you want to use Tags, click Show Advanced Options and then enter the TAG KEY and VALUE. Tagging is a metadata system that allows you to organize and track resources within your tenancy. Tags are composed of keys and values which can be attached to resources.

  7. Click Create Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure.

The list of Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resources refreshes to show the new resource with a status of Provisioning until the new Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resource is available.
