Review this topic to learn the differences between Essbase 21c deployment options.
For an Essbase 21c independent deployment, you install and configure Essbase using installation and configuration tools available on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.
If you select to use Essbase 21c deployment on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you do not need to run the installation and configuration tools. The deployment process sets up Essbase on your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) tenancy. Access the deployment stack listings from Oracle Cloud Marketplace.
