Oracle Compute Cloud vs. Amazon Web Services EC2 -- A Hands-On Showdown

83 views

Published on

We walk through the end-to-end process of provisioning an Oracle Compute Cloud instance from scratch - adding storage, defining firewall rules, creating a private key, and connecting through VNC. Then we do the same thing with Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2. Speed of provisioning is one of the benefits of the cloud, so let’s embark on this live walkthrough together, see how easy it is to get up and running, and compare the IaaS offering from Oracle and Amazon.

  7. 7. © Raastech, Inc. 2017 | All rights reserved. Slide 7 of 26@Raastech Cloud Concepts: IaaS ▪ IaaS = Infrastructure as a Service = Server + Storage + Network ▪ No need to invest in hardware up front ▪ Develop and deploy applications faster ▪ Scale up or down as needed
  8. 8. © Raastech, Inc. 2017 | All rights reserved. Slide 8 of 26@Raastech Cloud Concepts: History of Virtualization ▪ Provisioning a single physical server took months ▪ Physical resources were often underutilized ▪ Virtualization helped: ▪ Reduce provisioning time ▪ Maximize physical resources ▪ Introduce concepts such as cloning and snapshots
  9. 9. © Raastech, Inc. 2017 | All rights reserved. Slide 9 of 26@Raastech Cloud Concepts ▪ Cloud != Virtualization
  10. 10. © Raastech, Inc. 2017 | All rights reserved. Slide 10 of 26@Raastech Why Cloud is not Virtualization ▪ On demand resources ▪ Rapidly provisioned (i.e., self-service provisioning) ▪ Minimal management ▪ Elastic (i.e., workload management) ▪ Measured service (i.e., metering and chargeback)
  11. 11. © Raastech, Inc. 2017 | All rights reserved. Slide 11 of 26@Raastech Oracle Compute Cloud Service ▪ Unoriginal name ▪ Can be metered or non-metered ▪ Can use VirtualBox images as templates
  12. 12. © Raastech, Inc. 2017 | All rights reserved. Slide 12 of 26@Raastech Amazon Web Services EC2 ▪ EC2 = Elastic Compute Cloud (get it?) ▪ Scalable computing capacity in the AWS cloud

  20. 20. © Raastech, Inc. 2017 | All rights reserved. Slide 20 of 26@Raastech Recap ▪ Live demo walked through: ▪ Creating an instance ▪ Creating private key for SSH access ▪ Configuring firewall ▪ Installing required packages ▪ Configuring host ▪ Installing VNC Server
  21. 21. © Raastech, Inc. 2017 | All rights reserved. Slide 21 of 26@Raastech Summary ▪ Why we moved from AWS EC2 to Oracle Compute Cloud: ▪ Relatively easy migration (simple backup & restore) ▪ One app needed to be relinked due to library version difference ▪ Yes, it was 25% more expensive, but: ▪ Comparable CPU count ▪ Non-metered ▪ 2x memory ▪ 20x storage ▪ Oracle Cloud Support ▪ Dedicated Cloud Success Manager
