Download to read offline

With Oracle's announcement at the last Openworld at OBIEE will now be available in the Oracle Cloud as "Reporting as a Service", what does this new product promise, and what other options are there for running OBIEE in the cloud - either Oracle's, or from platform and infrastructure-as-a-service providers such as Amazon AWS, Rackspace and VMWare. In this session, we'll look at various approaches to running OBIEE in the cloud, look at licensing and product features, and see how supporting infrastructure such as data warehouse databases, ETL tools and identity management can also be deployed in the cloud to support OBIEE.

  4. 4. Deploying OBIEE in the Cloud • Many OBIEE customers are considering deploying their BI
 infrastructure in the “cloud” • “Push” and “Pull” factors in-play ‣Perceived benefits in reducing amount of on-premise servers,
 software installs, upfront-license costs ‣May also be prompted by migration of rest of IT infrastructure
 to the cloud ‣To enable business agility - deploy the system now • But there are lots of ways you can deploy OBIEE in the cloud • This presentation will outline the main options and scenarios,
 as of January 2014 T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

  10. 10. Oracle Cloud Business Intelligence - How it Works • Runs in Oracle’s public cloud environment - multi-tenant? ‣No upfront license cost Oracle BI-as-a-Service ‣Pay monthly (?) • Uses new thin-client RPD modelling tool 
 (thick-client BI Administration tool still supported?) • Only reports against a single Oracle database 
 schema (Oracle Cloud Schema-as-a-Service) • “Standard” OBIEE - but will possibly preview new
 Admin access
 functionality before on-premise versions over HTTP ‣Proposed data-mashup feature • Patched automatically by Oracle ‣Customer able to be max one version behind? T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com Oracle Schema-as-a-service
 Database (single source) Cloud On-Premise
  11. 11. Thin-Client Data Modeler (Subject to Change) • Announced at Oracle Openworld 2013 - but could change as product evolves • Cloud mandates a tool strategy that supports both Cloud and On-Premise development ‣Thin-Client Modeler to be delivered with BI Cloud Service v1 ‣Web-based tool designed for the business user • Masks complexity in creating a full model 
 using thick-client Admin Tool • But does not initially support multi-source, 
 RPD federation etc ‣Future goal is to deliver thin-client tool with 
 comparable functionality to replace 
 the legacy Admin Tool T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

  12. 12. Deploying OBIEE in the Cloud
 Part 2 : Deploying “Full” OBIEE into the Public Cloud T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  13. 13. Deploying “Full” OBIEE into the Public Cloud • Oracle’s Cloud Business Intelligence offering is consumer-style BI-as-a-service • Simple provisioning, setup, maintenance - but with significant limitations (at present) ‣No ability to access non-Oracle cloud DB data ‣No ability to federate data sources ‣No access to Essbase, BI Publisher, Agents, Maps etc • So why not deploy OBIEE yourself directly into the public cloud? ‣Amazon AWS ‣Rackspace etc ‣VMWare Hybrid Cloud T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  14. 14. Cloud Definitions: Public vs. Private Cloud • Public Cloud: Shared infrastructure provided over the internet, to the public as a service ‣Organizations rent compute resource on this shared platform ‣Key vendors include Amazon (AWS), Rackspace, Microsoft (Azure) - and Oracle ‣Base offering is Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Iaas) - compute, storage, network ‣Also typically offer Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) - e.g. Amazon RDS, Hosted JEE • Private Cloud: Provisioning and Efficiency Benefits of cloud, but on private infrastructure ‣Similar principles: shared resource that can be provisioned on-demand ‣But internal to organization: improved security, potentially better value ‣Key vendors: VMWare, OpenStack ‣But elasicitity of service limited by hardware within the private cloud • Hybrid Cloud: Combination of public + private cloud ‣Majority of workload run on private cloud, but with “burst out” to public cloud T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  15. 15. Key Cloud Vendors: Amazon AWS (+ Rackspace etc) • Dominant vendor in public cloud infrastructure ‣Amazon EC2: Virtual servers in the cloud ‣Amazon S3: Storage in the cloud • Usually the cheapest for compute/storage etc • Some free options available • Pay by the hour for various instance sizes • Also offers IaaS and PaaS services such as ‣Amazon RDS (Oracle DB, mySQL etc) ‣Amazon Elastic MapReduce etc • Other competitors include Rackspace, Google,
 Microsoft ‣But AWS 5 x larger than next 14 competitors
 (combined) T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  16. 16. Typical Single-Node Amazon EC2 Deployment • OBIEE + RCU Database install deployed on a single EC2 instance ‣Various instance size options available based on RAM, vCPU etc ‣OBIEE licensing: 1vCPU = 1 proc
 (http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/
 pricing/cloud-licensing-070579.pdf) • DW Database on Amazon RDS instance OBIEE FMW Install
 ‣Managed Database instance (backups etc) + RCU Oracle SE1
 (Amazon EC2) ‣BYOL: 1vCPU = 1 proc DB EE • Run BI Administrator either on-premise, or
 on another EC2 (Windows) instance DW Database Install
 (Amazon RDS) Instance Examples: ! m3.xlarge (4 vCPU, 15GB RAM) = $328/m m2.2xlarge (4 vCPU, 34GB RAM) = $598/m ! Oracle BI EE licensing: 1vCPU = 1 proc Oracle DB SE1 licensing: >4vCPU = 1 proc Amazon RDS Examples (BYOL): ! XL DB Instance: 4vCPU, 15GB RAM = $467/m Hi-Mem 4XL DB Instance: 8vCPU, 68GB RAM = $1613/m ! Oracle DB EE licensing: 1vCPU = 1 proc T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  17. 17. Amazon EC2 HA Configuration #1: (Stretch) WLS Cluster • Multiple EC2 instances organised into
 a WLS cluster ‣Instances can be placed into
 different EC2 availability
 zones (stretch cluster) OBIEE FMW Install
 (FMW Node 1) ‣But watch latency… • Uses Elastic Load Balancer
 to route incoming requests • Amazon RDS multi-availability
 RCU Database Install
 zones for automatic replication
 (Amazon EC2) to another availability zone ‣RCU DB cannot be on RDS
 as no support for SYS 
 as SYSADMIN (req. for RCU) T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com Amazon Elastic Load Balancer WebLogic Domain OBIEE FMW Install
 (FMW Node 2) OBIEE FMW Install
 (FMW Node n) DW Database Install
 (Amazon RDS) ! ! RDS Multi-Availability Zones Oracle Data Guard
  18. 18. Amazon EC2 HA Configuration #2: Replicated Single-Nodes • Multiple EC2 instances, but configured
 as WLS single-node ‣Bi-directional webcat replication keeps 
 separate catalogs in-sync OBIEE FMW Install
 ‣Could use EBS storage to
 + RCU Oracle SE1
 (FMW Node 1) create shared FMW_HOME
 as per HA EDG topology ‣Potentially place each 
 instance in separate EC2
 availability zone • Each node has own RCU Oracle DB SE1 DB • Single Amazon RDS Oracle DB EE
 instance for DW database, using
 multi-availability zones Amazon Elastic Load Balancer WebLogic Domain T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

 (FMW Node n) Bi-directional Webcat Replication DW Database Install
 (Amazon RDS) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com ! ! RDS Multi-Availability Zones Oracle Data Guard
  19. 19. Pros and Cons of Amazon EC2 for OBIEE • Pros: ‣Cheapest mass-market cloud vendor: effectively sets base price ‣Extremely well-developed IaaS and PaaS offering - load balancing, HA, monitoring, databases etc ‣Easy availability of skillets, well-known platform • Cons: ‣Not “native” to OBIEE, Oracle - aimed more at general web apps ‣Some ambiguity around licensing - multi-availability zones etc ‣Not fully-tested AWS HA with OBIEE HA - could be some 
 incompatibilities etc around clustering, failover etc ‣RCU DB hard to host in RDS - versions, SYSDBA access etc T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  20. 20. Key Cloud Vendors: Oracle • Announced at Oracle Openworld 2013: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings ‣Complements the existing PaaS services; aimed more at Amazon AWS • From later in 2014, ability to rent compute, storage, documents, network etc from
 Oracle, similar to Amazon AWS ‣For now though, focus is on service - DBaaS, Java etc - and Apps (HCM etc) Database Services Java Services Developer Services Common Infrastructure Services T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

  21. 21. Future Oracle Cloud Deployment? • OBIEE in the Cloud - initially “sandbox” single source, in future - more features/sources? • Hyperion EPM apps - Planning, FR • DBaaS - full database in the cloud, 
 supports ETL, OLAP etc? • Storage / Documents • Identity Management? • Enterprise Manager? • But - what will it cost vs. Amazon AWS? ‣How scriptable / extensible will it be? ‣Limitations on product functionality? ‣But Oracle can be creative on licensing T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  22. 22. Deploying OBIEE in the Cloud
 Part 3 : Multi-tenant OBIEE in the Cloud T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  23. 23. Multi-Tenant OBIEE in the Cloud • Typically used by application providers to provide tenanted access to OBIEE dashboards • Goes beyond application roles to support SaaS deployments • New multi-tenant-specific application roles ‣BIGlobalAdministrator - full systems administrator ‣BITenantAdministrator - catalog admin privileges ‣Tenant Users - linked to tenant ID through 
 FMW identity store (init blocks not supported) • Still uses single RPD, catalog • Restricted set of features ‣No FMW control for Tenant admins ‣No Essbase ‣No BI Administration tool for Tenant Admins ‣No Scorecards, RTD, BI Publisher, BI Mobile T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  24. 24. Enabling Multi-Tenancy in OBIEE 11g • Multi-tenancy isn’t enabled by default, needs to be enabled and configured • Supported from OBIEE 11.1.1.7+ • Probably only really meant for Oracle’s own (cloud) use • Provides three main capabilities vs. 
 home-grown multi-tenancy ‣Tenant-specific catalog permission admins ‣TenantGUIDs to prevent GUID clashes across tenants ‣Prompts, user lists etc scoped to just that tenant • To enable multi-tenancy: ‣Follow the steps at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/

  25. 25. Deploying OBIEE in the Cloud
 Part 3 : Cloud Databases for OBIEE T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  26. 26. Supporting Databases for OBIEE • OBIEE 11g requires one or more RDBMSs for data sources, metadata etc ‣DW database (or DB sources) for reporting data ‣RCU database for supporting schemas 
 (BIPLATFORM, MDS etc) • Likelihood is that Cloud OBIEE data sources will
 be a mixture of on-premise, cloud (and app?) • If OBIEE is deployed in the cloud, chances are
 that it’s because its DW database is also there BI Admin Tool
 RPD Access • But what are the options if you want to deploy
 supporting databases into the cloud? BI Administration

 Data Sources Cloud-based
 data sources Cloud On-Premise
  27. 27. Amazon Relational Database Service • Database PaaS offering from Amazon AWS, provides 
 a range of databases as a managed service ‣Oracle SE1/SE/EE, mySQL, MS SQL Server, Postgres • Includes license (Oracle SE1/SE) or BYOL (Oracle EE) • Managed service, provides backups etc • Multi-availability zones for resilience/high-availability ‣Automatically replicates DB to other region • Mostly “full” Oracle, but no SYS as SYSDBA access ‣So no use for the RCU database T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  28. 28. Postgres on Amazon AWS • Postgres is a mature RDBMS product, free core features, similar capability to Oracle 7/8 • Enterprise DB offer paid support and their own admin tools (Postgres Plus) • Rather than license + install on-premise, can also be hosted on Amazon AWS • Offered as an hourly-charged SaaS database, 
 includes support + tools • Accessed by (unsupported) Postgres ODBC drivers • Typically costs around the same price as Oracle SE1 ‣$6.48/hour, or approx $56k for each server 
 (includes hosting though) ‣But need to factor in AWS storage + bandwidth costs ‣Likely annual costs : $120k/year T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  29. 29. Left-Field Alternative: Amazon Redshift hosted on Amazon AWS • Another database-as-a-service offering from Oracle AWS • Based on ParAccel, cut-down version and native to Amazon Cloud ‣Column-store, analysis-optimised • Can connect to OBIEE via PostgreSQL drivers, 
 but like Postgres Plus, not Oracle supported • Similar cost to Postgres Plus on AWS, but includes 
 AWS storage and bandwidth costs T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  30. 30. For the Future : Hadoop / Impala (Big Data Sources) • New in OBIEE 11.1.1.7 : Hadoop Connectivity through Hive • Hive is a query environment over Hadoop/MapReduce to support SQL-like queries • Hive server accepts HiveQL queries via HiveODBC or HiveJDBC, automatically
 creates MapReduce jobs against data previously loaded into the Hive HDFS tables • Approach used by ODI and OBIEE to gain access to Hadoop data • Allows Hadoop data to be accessed just like any other data source • But … it’s quite slow, for ad-hoc BI queries T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  31. 31. Addressing Hadoop / Hive Latency : Cloudera Impala • Hive is slow - because it’s meant to be used for batch-mode queries • Many companies / projects are trying to improve Hive - one of which is Cloudera • Cloudera Impala is an open-source but 
 commercially-sponsored in-memory MPP platform • Replaces Hive and MapReduce in the Hadoop stack • Can we use this, instead of Hive, to access Hadoop? • It will need to work with OBIEE • Warning - it won’t be a supported data source (yet…) T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  32. 32. How Impala Works • A replacement for Hive, but uses Hive concepts and
 data dictionary (metastore) ‣but not officially supported with OBIEE (yet) • MPP (Massively Parallel Processing) query engine
 that runs within Hadoop ‣Uses same file formats, security,
 resource management as Hadoop • Processes queries in-memory • Accesses standard HDFS file data • Option to use Apache AVRO, RCFile,
 LZO or Parquet (column-store) • Designed for interactive, real-time
 SQL-like access to Hadoop BI Server Presentation Svr Cloudera Impala

  33. 33. Deploying OBIEE in the Cloud
 Part 5 : ETL in the Cloud T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or 
 +61 3 9596 7186 (Australia & New Zealand) or +91 997 256 7970 (India) E : info@rittmanmead.com W : www.rittmanmead.com
  34. 34. Why is ETL Important (& Why Would it Also Move to Cloud)? • OBIEE needs a data source to report on, typically a data warehouse • Initially these are on-premise, but over time they may migrate to the cloud • Once all sources and targets are in the cloud 
 - where does the ETL live? ‣Doesn’t make sense for it to be the 
 only on-premise component ‣Can we also run this in the cloud? T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

  35. 35. ETL Tools Provided by Cloud Vendors • Cloud infrastructure vendors (Amazon, Google, Oracle etc) typically provide tools to
 import data into the cloud, and keep it refreshed • These are good options if only this single target, and typically a single source ‣Usually free ‣Optimized for that platform • But beyond that - you need an ETL tool ‣Complex transformations ‣Different metadata stores ‣Orchestrated loading T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

  36. 36. Cloud ETL Requirements (DIaaS) • DIaaS (Data Integration as a service) should be a service ‣Self-provisioned, no software install or configuration ‣Charged by the day/hour ‣Multi-tenant ‣A range of DB and cloud application adapters ‣All thin-client, web-based ‣Easy scale-out, HA, compatibility with Amazon EC2 etc • Could just do the same as on-premise ETL, but “cloud expectations are different” - consumer, service, simple UI T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

  37. 37. Oracle’s Cloud Data Integration Offerings • ODI 11g/12c could theoretically run in the cloud • But its ELT approach means there’s no (usual) mid-tier ETL transform element ‣Agents typically are installed on sources and targets ‣Transformation happens on target • SaaS application adapters typically 
 provided through Jdeveloper and SOA Suite ‣Functional, but not “consumer-simple” • Forthcoming OBIA cloud adapters assume 
 on-premise install of OBIA/OBIEE, 
 with Oracle cloud apps as sources T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

  38. 38. Cloud ETL Alternative #1 : Informatica Cloud • A version of Informatica PowerCenter that runs in the cloud (sort of) ‣Metadata and application layer components run in the cloud (as a multi-tenant app) ‣“Secure Agent” runtime runs on-premise 
 - cut-down version of PowerCenter ‣Data transformation etc therefore happens on-premise • Some interaction between on-premise and cloud ‣PowerCenter mapplets can be copied to the cloud • Obvious cloud option for Informatica customers T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

  39. 39. Cloud ETL Alternative #2 : SnapLogic Integration Cloud • “Cloud native” data integration platform • Focuses on “data paths” and application
 integration, with data streamed point-to-point • Transformations are done through “Snaplexes” ‣Java JVMs similar to ODI agents ‣Can run in-cloud or on-premise ‣Uses Amazon S3 storage for temp files etc ‣Elastic scale-out when running in cloud • Weakness is the “last mile” of DW data ‣Lacks KMs and other templates for SCDs etc ‣Not as strong as an ELT tool for complex
 database transformations T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or

  40. 40. Conclusions • There are lots of reasons customers are considering deploying OBIEE in the cloud ‣All their other applications are moving to the cloud ‣Reduce cost and complexity around infrastructure ‣Enable business agility with services available now • Several options for cloud OBIEE deployment ‣Oracle’s upcoming Cloud Business Intelligence offering ‣Deploying “full” OBIEE into a public cloud ‣Access OBIEE as a service using multi-tenancy • Need to also consider database, IDM, ETL elements • And also licensing, security etc T : +44 (0) 1273 911 268 (UK) or (888) 631-1410 (USA) or
