Oracle VM Templates and Virtual Appliances

Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.4 (x86 64-bit), Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.3 (x86 64-bit), Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.2 (x86 64-bit), Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 (x86 64-bit), Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.4 (x86 64-bit for Oracle Exalogic), Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.3 (x86 64-bit for Oracle Exalogic), and Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 (x86 64-bit for Oracle Exalogic)

These virtual deployment packages delivers a "quick start" of Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 or 12.1.3 on Oracle Linux. By using virtual appliances or templates, which are pre-configured for a Vision demo or fresh install database, an E-Business Suite environment can be brought up and running quickly.

Each appliance or template consists of a configuration file, the operating system image, and an application image.  The latest releases includes an "all-in-one" virtual appliance with everything needed for a single node Vision installation, along with separate database and application tier appliances to support multi-node installations.  Sparse middle tier templates are available for all releases which allow you to add additional, lightweight secondary application tiers.

The resulting environments can be used as a starting point and subsequently enhanced and tuned to fit any specialized requirements.

Oracle VM Template for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.X Sparse Middle Tier (x86 64-bit and 32-bit)
This small Oracle VM template contains Oracle Linux 5.5, and just enough Oracle E-Business Suite code to enable the creation of a secondary application tier instance (web/application/batch servers).

The sparse template requires an Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 or 12.1 system to be already installed somewhere on the network, with the application tier file system  exported so that it can be mounted on the virtual machine. Please note that this template does not depend on any particular version of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 or 12.1: it can be used with any supported version of these releases.
