  30. 30. Key Takeaways • Oracle/PeopleSoft Installation – Follow the same process to building PeopleSoft in the Cloud as you would normally do. Perform due-diligence and testing to ensure software compatibility. – Validate all software licenses. Leverage other software or network subscriptions the company uses. – Consult with architects and engineers to validate that standards are being followed.

  31. 31.

Amazon provides a utility to enable persistent machine names. – Linux mount points are not automatically configured. Remember to define the mount point in /etc/fstab! © 2011 Robert Half International. All rights reserved. This material is the confidential property of Robert Half31 International.

  32. 32. Key Takeaways • Systems/Storage Performance – Linux and Windows systems performed as expected. Dual CPU systems with a lot of memory are quite fast! – Storage performance differs by Amazon’s hosting regions and availability zones. • Small WRITE operations and general READ operations appeared normal. • Disk performance was slower for large WRITE operations in VPC US East region as compared to EC2 US West. – Example: PeopleSoft database installation script – 8-10 hrs in EC2 compared to 18-20 hrs in VPC. – Example: 30GB database backup to disk – 30 min in EC2 compared to 1.5 hrs in VPC. © 2011 Robert Half International.

  33. 33. Key Takeaways • Virtual Private Cloud – The VPC is secured with firewalls. Access through the firewall is provisioned on an as-needed basis by server and ports, depending on the application/service requirements. – VPC uses same internet connection that the rest of the company uses. Consideration for performance regarding VPC and company internet access, and vice versa. – Large file transfers can take a long time • 1 GB file transfer between oracle.com and VPC: 5 hours • 30 GB database between US West  US East: 4 days • Creative workaround: Provision instance in same region as VPC, load files/software to Amazon Elastic Block Storage, and share/mount storage to VPC servers. © 2011 Robert Half International.
