Oracle Database 12c: quickly create a virtual machine with OEL 6.4 and Oracle Database 12c (for dummies)4
I am first and foremost a developer. I am not an administrator. I know more about IDEs and GUIs than about command line. I have always been a little scared of system administration and non-wizard (next-next-finish) based installations. I am not proud of it. I have other skills and interests. I know how to drive my car but I cannot do engine maintenance. Something like that. Now Oracle has released Oracle Database 12c. And the only way for me to run it today is to install it on Linux. So I have a big impetus to finally get started. First with the creation of a Virtual Machine (VirtualBox) with Oracle Enterprise Linux inside (I wrote about my baby steps in this article http://technology.amis.nl/2013/06/29/how-to-create-a-virtual-box-vm-with-oracle-enterprise-linux-inside-a-dummy-guide/) and next with the installation of the Oracle Database 12c in that machine.
This article describes how I went from a clean Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.4 environment in a VirtualBox VM to a VM with additional hard disk, volume group and logical volume with the Oracle Database 12c up and running. The steps are: (more…)
Oracle Database 12c: How to create a Virtual Box VM with Oracle Enterprise Linux inside – A dummy guide4
I have a confession to make. I have not been into Linux very much. When I started my career at Oracle, back in 1994, I had to do a little bit of development work on a UNIX machine. That’s where I acquired from cd, vi, sed, grep and ls skills. But in later years, on my own laptop, I took the easy way out and succumbed to Windows and GUIs. Then I started using Virtual Machines and even they had Windows as their client operating system most of the times. I have occasionally downloaded Linux based VMs from OTN – and used as the server side in my development efforts quite happily – and I was supplied with such Linux VMs by several very helpful colleagues no many occasions, for example for doing the work in the various beta-programs AMIS is involved in. But I was a little scared of Linux if truth be told. And the idea of creating a virtual machine by myself seemed preposterous.
Larry Ellison – Opening Keynote of Oracle Open World 2010 – announcing Exalogic, the cloud in a box.1
The first major keynote of this year’s Oracle Open World conference was last night – Larry Ellison announcing the Oracle Exalogic machine, the “cloud in a box”. A high end machine that is meant for consolidation (through virtualization) of many applications on a single piece of highly optimized infrastructure.
