Overview of this book

Cloud computing has transformed the way that we write and deploy enterprise software. Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c has been designed to work with the cloud platform and reduce downtime, while improving performance and productivity. You can quickly set up, manage, and support enterprise clouds. This practical, example-oriented guide untangles many of the complexities involved in setting up a complete cloud computing platform. This book explores several methods of setting up IaaS and DBaaS using Oracle's Enterprise Manager. Step-by-step, this guide will quickly familiarize you with the most important aspects of setting up a cloud platform. This book delves deep into the complexities surrounding cloud computing and comprehensively explores the approach that you need to take to build an effective infrastructure. You will start with a step-by-step approach to building an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and take an in-depth view of building a Database as a Service (DBaaS) model of cloud computing. Following on from this, you will learn how the chargeback mechanism works and how it can be configured for your needs. Next, you will also learn how to use a programmable interface to manage your cloud via APIs and web services.

VM Manager is the place where you create and manage virtual machines, guest VMs, virtual server pools, and zones for your IaaS. The first thing you need do is to register the VM Manager by adding it as an Enterprise Manager target (refer to the Adding targets manually section in Chapter 1, Setting Up Enterprise Manager).

Before you add Oracle VM Manager as an EM target, make sure you have imported VM Manager certificates in the agent keystore by performing the following:

  1. Export the VM Manager certificate by executing the following command on your VM Manager host:

    <JAVA_HOME>/bin/keytool -keystore <VMMANAGER_HOME>/ovmmCoreTcps.ks -exportcert -alias ovmm -file <location of the certificate>
  2. Import the VM Manager certificate by executing...
