We are delighted to announce the availability of a major release for solutions to run Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS) on Azure Linux Virtual Machines. The release is jointly developed with the WebLogic team as part of the broad-ranging partnership between Microsoft and Oracle. The partnership also covers joint support from Oracle/Microsoft and a range of Oracle software running on Azure. Software available under the partnership includes Oracle WebLogic, Oracle Linux and Oracle Database as well as interoperability between Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Azure. This major release covers various common use cases for WLS on Azure, such as base image, single working instance, clustering, load balancing via App Gateway, database connectivity and integration with Azure Active Directory. WLS is a key component in enabling enterprise Java workloads on Azure. Customers are encouraged to evaluate these solutions for full production usage and reach out to collaborate on migration cases.
Use Cases and Roadmap
The partnership between Oracle and Microsoft was announced in June of 2019. Under the partnership, we announced the initial release of the WLS on Azure Linux Virtual Machines solutions at Oracle OpenWorld 2019. The solutions facilitate easy lift-and-shift migration by automating boilerplate operations such as provisioning virtual networks/storage, installing Linux/Java resources, setting up WLS as well as configuring security with a network security group. The initial release supported a basic set of use cases such as single working instance and clustering. In addition, the release supported a limited set of WLS and Java versions.
