5 Using On-Premises Oracle Integration Cloud Service

When you subscribe to Oracle Integration Cloud Service, you also have the option to install an on-premises version of Oracle Integration Cloud Service in your local environment. This installation provides you with an expanded domain that consists of one administration server and one managed server on the same host. This enables you to use on-premises Oracle Integration Cloud Service as a proxy server that sits between your internal company server hidden behind a fire wall and the cloud version of Oracle Integration Cloud Service. After installation, you can create users and assign roles to these users on the Users page of on-premises Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

On-premises Oracle Integration Cloud Service is highly available.  On-premises Oracle Integration Cloud Service is useful for development and test environments. All messages are processed on-premises. The primary use case is where the application endpoints are both on-premises. Message data remains on-premises, which helps with data sovereignty. 

Key differences from the public cloud version are as follows:

  • No agent support is provided.

  • You must manually upgrade the installation to the latest version.

  • An external on-premises database is recommended that requires an additional license.

On-premises Oracle Integration Cloud Service can call external systems.  To receive calks from external systems, you must open your company firewall. For bidirectional access to cloud systems, it is recommended that you instead use the public cloud version of Oracle Integration Cloud Service.
