FlexDeploy for Oracle Fusion Middleware
DevOps and Continuous Delivery Made Easy
Historical approaches to the deployment of Oracle Fusion Middleware have used a combination of manual steps and home-grown scripting. This has led to slow, error-prone, and costly deployment processes which, for most customers, is simply unacceptable.
FlexDeploy standardizes, orchestrates, and automates the lifecycle of provisioning, building, deploying, and testing middleware artifacts, configurations, and other related artifacts across test and production environments. FlexDeploy’s support for Fusion Middleware products, including WebLogic, SOA Suite, Service Bus, B2B, JMS, MFT, BPM, ODI, ADF, WebCenter, and OBIEE, is more extensive and complete than any other tool on the market. In addition to full automation, FlexDeploy provides the controls and visibility needed to effectively manage and maintain your middleware implementations on premises, cloud, or hybrid deployment architectures.
Without FlexDeploy, Fusion Middleware customers take a variety of approaches to implement the deployment process, including fully manual, a combination of manual and scripted, or fully scripted via custom developed tools. Oracle customers who have created custom deployment tooling can attest to the time investment required to create and maintain such tools. For those who have manual procedures, or have partially automated the process, the pain points are also well known. For example, the speed (or lack thereof) of deployments and the potential for injecting errors because of human mistakes. In addition, most deployment processes lack the role-based security, scheduling, notifications, reporting, and other lifecycle management features provided out of the box by FlexDeploy. FlexDeploy’s Fusion Middleware plugins hide the complexity of administration steps and deployment operations.
