I’ve dusted off the original EPM Test Drive AMI and deployed Hyperion Planning and applied some of the key patches that came out in the last year; one of the patches I was happiest about is the patch which makes the managed WebLogic servers start reliably. I also switched to IIS from Oracle HTTP Server.
Do you want to get your feet wet with 18.104.22.168 however dread the long download time for the gigabytes of files or don’t have a server handy?
Oracle allows for use of their software for evaluation and prototyping in non-production environments with minimal restrictions and one of the easiest ways to take advantage of this is a cloud environment.
I’ve put together a basic installation which includes most of the media downloads and the following products already deployed:
- Foundation Services
- Calculation Manager
- Reporting and Analysis Framework
- Financial Reporting Studio and Print Server
You may kick the tires and also deploy some of the other products already there or download and install anything else!
NOTE: This AMI is in no way intended for any production purposes and using it for such is against Oracle licensing rules.
For those of you who are Amazon EC2 savvy I’ve installed and deployed several of the 22.214.171.124 products on the cloud; check out:
AMI: ami-3173a358 - Metavero Sandbox – Partially configured Oracle | Hyperion 126.96.36.199; use m2.xlarge or m1.xlarge instances.
Windows: administrator, epmtestdrive
Shared Services: admin, epmtestdrive
Weblogic: epm_admin, epmtestdrive123
SQL Server: hypsql, hypsql
NOTE: Remember to setup your security group to allow RDP (3389) and be sure to shutdown your Amazon machine when you don’t use. $1.00 / hour is inexpensive however can add up.
