DEPLOYMENT GUIDE Oracle Endeca

Prerequisites and configuration notes The following are general prerequisites and configuration notes for this guide: hh You must have administrative access to the BIG-IP LTM web-based Configuration utility. hh You must have administrative access to the Endeca Information Discovery Servers. hh You must have the appropriate DNS and NTP network services configured. hh T  his guide assumes you have already initially configured the BIG-IP system with Interfaces, VLANs, Self-IPs, and IP Routes, and that the LTM is installed, licensed, and running in your network. For basic LTM configuration and installation instructions, please consult the appropriate F5 documentation. hh N  ote that Endeca Information Discovery Services are usually added to an existing Oracle application, such as E-Business Suite. Please consult the appropriate F5 and Oracle documentation for installing and configuring the application software if needed. See http://www.f5.com/products/documentation/deployment-guides.view.solutions.base-application.oracle.html.

Overview of Oracle Endeca This section contains an overview of Oracle Endeca, including Information Discovery.

Endeca Information Discovery Oracle Endeca Information Discovery is a data discovery platform that guides people to better decisions on diverse and changing data. It is based on a patented hybrid search-analytical database, and gives IT a centralized platform to rapidly deploy interactive analytic applications, and keep pace with changing business requirements while maintaining information governance.

Oracle Endeca Server The Oracle Endeca Server software provides the query engine that serves as the foundation for all front-end applications utilizing it. The software includes the Oracle Endeca Server, which is the management facility for administering the Endeca data stores. Front-end applications built on top of the Oracle Endeca Server can answer end-user queries and provide business analytics information to the frontapplication's users.

Configuration example Using F5 with an Endeca Cluster provides an Enterprise class architecture which can provide for increased throughput and capacity, and enhanced availability of query processing. Endeca Servers can be added as needed to increase computing power and improve application response time. Admin/Config updates Integrator updates Leader node
