Using Oracle Database
Installing and configuring Oracle Database would usually involve downloading the software, setting the kernel parameters, installing and configuring the software, all of which is quite involved. Using Docker containers coordinated with Kubernetes makes the task of installing, configuring, and orchestrating a Oracle Database cluster much easier. Oracle Database cluster consisting of multiple instances could benefit from the scheduling, scalability, distributedness, and failover features of the Kubernetes container cluster manager. In this chapter we shall install Oracle Database using a Docker image for the database. We shall create multiple replicas of the database Pod using a replication controller and expose the database as a service. This chapter has the following sections.
