Quickstart Guide to Solace PubSub+ on Oracle Cloud (OCI) 2nd. Gen.

CloudGod Member Posts: 24 ✭✭

Hi everyone,
I built a detailed guide on how to get the Solace Pubsub+ SW broker running on Oracle’s cloud, aka OCI 2nd Gen.

I used Solace’s own GCP QuickStart as a basis (kudos to @Balazs, @KenBarr, and @ChristianHoltfurth) and went through all the steps to have your Solace instance running in no time, both in Standalone and HA configurations, on OCI.

I also created a few issues, to tackle on fixes and improvements to this guide. Mostly:

  • Secure protocols, by adding a certificate to the broker.
  • Code samples in a few languages, ready to run and deploy.
  • A fix in the scripts to cope with the $releasever having not only the version number but the type of OS (“7Server”).

Just give it a spin if you can. Looking forward to hearing comments on how to improve it.



Disclaimer: I didn’t focus on the security aspects of the guide. Some things in there are just plain wrong from a security perspective, such as opening all the ports for exterior access or shutting down the firewall service. I did it to have no obstacles to the installation and testing procedures.
You MUST configure appropriate security rules and services to run this and open it up to the public.
