You can also deploy Oracle WebCenter Sites on Kubernetes. Oracle WebLogic Kubernetes Operator helps you deploy and manage Oracle WebCenter Sites domains in a Kubernetes environment.
The following topics provides an overview of deploying and running Oracle WebCenter Sites on Kubernetes:
Container Image of Oracle WebCenter Sites
Container images are portable software bundles that you can distribute across environments.
You can use these images to instantiate containers where applications run in isolation from other applications running in different containers on the same host operating system.
You can install Oracle WebCenter Sites container images in one of the following ways:
- Download a prebuilt Oracle WebCenter Sites image from Oracle Support. See Doc ID 2777062.1. This image is prebuilt by Oracle and includes Oracle WebCenter Sites 18.104.22.168.0 and the latest Patch Set Updates (PSU).
- Build and patch your own Oracle WebCenter Sites container image by using the WebLogic Image Tool. For information about the different ways to build your own container images, see Building the WCS Image.
- For test and development purposes, create an Oracle WebCenter Sites image using a Dockerfile. See Creating Oracle WebCenter Sites Docker Containers.
Note:Oracle WebCenter Sites container image is supported according to the Supported Virtualization and Partitioning Technologies for Oracle Fusion Middleware. Oracle WebCenter Sites container image excludes components such as SatelliteServer, SiteCapture, and VisitorServices.
Oracle WebCenter Sites on Kubernetes
Kubernetes is an orchestration system that enables the deployment and running of containerized applications across clusters.
Oracle WebCenter Sites domains deployment on Kubernetes uses the Oracle WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator framework. Oracle provides an open-source WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator, which has several key features to assist you with deploying and managing Oracle WebCenter Sites domains in a Kubernetes environment.
To configure the Oracle WebCenter Sites containers with Kubernetes, see Oracle WebCenter Sites on Kubernetes.
