Creating a Cluster with Stack Manager

Use Oracle Cloud Stack Manager to provision instances of both Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service and Oracle Big Data Cloud as a single operation.

Oracle Cloud Stack Manager is a component of Oracle Cloud that enables you to create multiple cloud resources as a single unit called a stack. You create, delete and manage these resources together as a unit, but you can also access, configure, and manage them through their service-specific interfaces. Stacks also define the dependencies between your stack resources, so that Oracle Cloud Stack Manager creates and destroys the resources in a logical sequence.

Stacks are created from templates. Oracle Cloud Stack Manager includes a certified Oracle stack template named Oracle-OEHCS-BDCSCE-StackTemplate. This template creates a stack that’s comprised of these resources:

  • A cluster in Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service.

  • A cluster in Oracle Big Data Cloud that is connected to the Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service cluster.

  • A storage container in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic to support cloud backups for both the Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service and Oracle Big Data Cloud clusters.

Get Started

Create a stack using the Oracle-OEHCS-BDCSCE-StackTemplate template. Refer to these topics in Using Oracle Cloud Stack Manager:

Template Parameters

In the Oracle-OEHCS-BDCSCE-StackTemplate template, the values of these input parameters can be customized for each stack creation:

  • Event Hub compute shape, number of Kafka brokers, and usable topic storage

  • Big Data Cloud compute shape, number of nodes, usable HDFS storage, and cluster user name

  • SSH public key for VM administration

  • Name of the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic container to create

  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic user name and password

Customize the Template

Export and update the Oracle-OEHCS-BDCSCE-StackTemplate template in order to customize your stack’s behavior. Modify the template’s name and contents, such as adding a template parameter or changing the parameters used to create the Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service instance. See:
