Set Up a Virtual Cloud Network

Set up a Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) for your Oracle SOA Suite on Marketplace instance to use.

This VCN quickstart procedure is useful for getting started and trying out Oracle Platform Services on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. For production, use the procedure in VCNs and Subnets in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure documentation. That topic explains features such as how to specify the CIDR ranges for your VCN and subnets, and how to secure your network. When you use the advanced procedure in that topic, remember that the VCN that you create must have a public subnet for Oracle Platform Services to use.

To set up a VCN:

  1. In the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console, from the Regions menu, select the region in which you want to create your Oracle SOA Suite on Marketplace instance.

    Select a region that's within the default data region of your account. For example, if your default data region is EMEA, then select Germany Central (Frankfurt) or UK South (London).

  2. From the Compartment list, select the compartment you created.
  3. Open the navigation menu, click Networking, and then click Virtual Cloud Networks.
  4. Click Networking Quickstart.
  5. Select VCN with Internet Connectivity, and then click Start Workflow.
  6. Enter the following:
    • VCN Name: Enter a name for your cloud network, for example, your_initials_Network (for example, LB_Network). The name is incorporated into the names of all the related resources that are automatically created. Avoid entering confidential information.
    • Compartment: Leave the default value (the compartment you're currently working in). All the resources will be created in this compartment.
    • VCN CIDR Block: Enter a valid CIDR block for the VCN. For example:
    • Public Subnet CIDR Block: Enter a valid CIDR block for the subnet. The value must be within the VCN's CIDR block. For example:
    • Private Subnet CIDR Block: Enter a valid CIDR block for the subnet. The value must be within the VCN's CIDR block and not overlap with the public subnet's CIDR block. For example:
    • Accept the defaults for any other fields.
  7. Click Next.
  8. Review the list of resources that the workflow will create for you. Notice that the workflow will set up security list rules and route table rules to enable basic access for the VCN.
  9. Click Create to start the short workflow.
