Creating a QuickStart Database Deployment

Not Oracle Cloud Infrastructure This topic does not apply to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

For accounts that use the Universal Credits payment model, Oracle Database Cloud Service provides QuickStart templates that create database deployments of commonly used configurations. You simply pick a template and, if desired, change the default deployment name. Database Cloud Service then uses an Oracle Cloud Stack template to provide all the other configuration information.

Note:

QuickStart database deployments use the "Bring Your Own License" feature. This feature enables you to use an existing perpetual Oracle Database license to establish the right to use Oracle Database on a deployment. If you do not wish to use this feature, you must create a customized deployment. Follow the steps in Creating a Customized Database Deployment and, for the License Type option, select Subscribe to a new Oracle Database software license and the Oracle Database Cloud Service.

Procedure

  1. Go to the QuickStarts page:

    1. Open the Oracle Database Cloud Service console.

      For detailed instructions, see Accessing the Oracle Database Cloud Service Console.

    2. Click the QuickStarts link.

      The QuickStarts page is displayed.

  2. If desired, change the Instance Name from the default one that’s provided. The name must start with a letter, and can contain up to 25 letters or numbers.

  3. Review the information about the available templates and decide which one you want to use.

    For more information about the database deployments these templates create, see Standard Edition, Enterprise Edition, and Extreme Performance.

  4. Click the Create button below the template you want to use.

    The Confirmation window is displayed. Note that the Create button is disabled.

  5. Click the Download link and save the zip file containing the SSH key pair and administrator password that will be used to create your deployment. You will need this information to access your database deployment after it is created.

    The Create button is now enabled.

  6. Click Create.

    The Confirmation window closes, Database Cloud Service begins creating the deployment using theOracle Cloud Stack template, and the Services page is displayed.

  7. Periodically refresh the Services page to monitor the creation of your new database deployment.

Standard Edition

When you use the Standard Edition QuickStart option, Database Cloud Service uses an Oracle Cloud Stack template to create a database deployment consisting of a single-instance Oracle Database 12.2 Standard Edition database housed on a single compute node. In brief, the template performs these actions:

  • Creates a compute node of 1 OCPU with 7.5 GB RAM and its own public IP address.

  • Installs Oracle Linux, Oracle Database 12.2.0.1 Standard Edition, and cloud tooling software on the compute node.

  • Creates storage for 15 GB of database data and storage for the fast recovery area and redo logs needed for the database.

  • Creates Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute Classic networking resources to provide access to the compute node, setting all except SSH access on port 22 to a disabled status.

  • Creates an Oracle database with the SID (System ID) ORCL and a single PDB (pluggable database) named PDB1.

  • Configures Oracle Net Services to listen for database connections on port 1521.

  • Starts the database and starts the Oracle Net Services listener.

Note that the template does not configure automatic backups for the database deployment. To set up automatic backups, see Changing the Backup Configuration on Database Deployments Hosting Single-Instance Databases.

Enterprise Edition

When you use the Enterprise Edition QuickStart option, Database Cloud Service uses an Oracle Cloud Stack template to create a database deployment consisting of a single-instance Oracle Database 12.2 Enterprise Edition database housed on a single compute node. In brief, the template performs these actions:

  • Creates a compute node of 2 OCPUs with 15 GB RAM and its own public IP address.

  • Installs Oracle Linux, Oracle Database 12.2.0.1 Enterprise Edition, and cloud tooling software on the compute node.

  • Creates storage for 512 GB of database data and storage for the fast recovery area and redo logs needed for the database.

  • Creates Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute Classic networking resources to provide access to the compute node, setting all except SSH access on port 22 to a disabled status.

  • Creates an Oracle database with the SID (System ID) ORCL and a single PDB (pluggable database) named PDB1.

  • Configures Oracle Net Services to listen for database connections on port 1521.

  • Starts the database and starts the Oracle Net Services listener.

Note that the template does not configure automatic backups for the database deployment. To set up automatic backups, see Changing the Backup Configuration on Database Deployments Hosting Single-Instance Databases.

Extreme Performance

When you use the Extreme Performance QuickStart option, Database Cloud Service uses an Oracle Cloud Stack template to create a database deployment consisting of a single-instance Oracle Database 12.2 Enterprise Edition database housed on a single compute node. In brief, the template performs these actions:

  • Creates a compute node of 2 OCPUs with 15 GB RAM and its own public IP address.

  • Installs Oracle Linux, Oracle Database 12.2.0.1 Enterprise Edition, and cloud tooling software on each compute node.

  • Creates storage for 1 TB of database data and storage for the fast recovery area and redo logs needed for the database.

  • Creates Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute Classic networking resources to provide access to the compute node, setting all except SSH access on port 22 to a disabled status.

  • Creates an Oracle database with the SID (System ID) ORCL and a single PDB (pluggable database) named PDB1.

  • Configures Oracle Net Services to listen for database connections on port 1521.

  • Starts the database and starts the Oracle Net Services listener.

Note that the template does not configure automatic backups for the database deployment. To set up automatic backups, see Changing the Backup Configuration on Database Deployments Hosting Oracle RAC Databases.
