A few weeks ago David Peake asked if somebody is already running Oracle APEX in the cloud, but today we are already a step further!
Jason Straub from the APEX development team has put together a step by step instruction for setting up an Oracle Database and Oracle Application Express in the “cloud” aka Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). You can even test drive his Amazon EC2 APEX instance!
I think that’s a great new possibility for making an Oracle APEX applications available on the Internet. With full control of the database and the operating software. But be aware that you have to take care of the backup, … by yourself. If you don’t need full control and don’t want to have all the hassle, consider using one of the available Oracle APEX Hosting providers.
