You can now start an Oracle E-Business Suite implementation on AWS without any upfront cost or commitment for compute, storage, or network infrastructure. We provisioned an Amazon Virtual Private Network (Amazon VPC) to run the Oracle E-Business Suite, the modules (Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Oracle Asset Management and SO, PO and India tax localization) were successfully deployed on Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances via Elastic Load Balancing. The Oracle HTTPS Server (OHS) and the Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS) are deployed on each application tier instance. The OHS accepts these requests from Elastic Load Balancing and routes them to the Oracle WLS.
Although performance testing is recommended prior to any major change to an Oracle E-Business Suite environment, most customers test only the performance test on their Oracle E-Business Suite application during the initial launch. Later releases are usually never tested for performance due to the expense and lack of environment required for such performance testing.
AWS reduces the risk of performance issues later in production. An AWS Cloud environment can be created easily and only used when needed. Also, you are only charged for the hours the environment is used.
