Amazon said several applications of Oracle are now available in its Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, or EC2, a commercial web service that allows customers to rent computers on which to run their own computer applications.
EC2 allows users to rent virtual computers on which to run their own computer applications. EC2 also allows scalable deployment of applications by providing a web service through which a user can boot an Amazon Machine Image to create a virtual machine, which Amazon calls an instance, containing any software desired.
The following applications are now available as Application Management Interfaces for use with EC2:
*Oracle PeopleSoft CRM 9.1 PeopleTools
*Oracle PeopleSoft CRM 9.1 Database
*Oracle PeopleSoft ELM 9.1 PeopleTools
*Oracle PeopleSoft ELM 9.1 Database
*Oracle PeopleSoft FSCM 9.1 PeopleTools
*Oracle PeopleSoft FSCM 9.1 Database
*Oracle PeopleSoft PS 9.1 PeopleTools
*Oracle PeopleSoft PS 9.1 Database
*Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 App Tier
*JD Edwards Enterprise One - ORCLVMDB
*JD Edwards Enterprise One - ORCLVMHTML
*JD Edwards Enterprise One - ORCLVMENT
The application AMIs are all based on Oracle Linux and run on 64-bit high-memory instances atop the Oracle VM, said Jeff Barr, Senior Manager, Cloud Computing Solutions at Amazon.com.
You can use them as-is or you can create derivative versions tuned to your particular needs. We'll start out in one Region and add more in the near future, Barr said in a statement.
Barr said one can use their existing Oracle licenses at no additional license cost or you can acquire new licenses from Oracle.
We implemented Oracle VM support on Amazon EC2 with hard partitioning so Oracle's standard partitioned processor licensing models apply, Barr said.
Customers with active Oracle Support and Amazon Premium Support will be able to contact either Amazon or Oracle for support.
