The Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service (BICS) architecture is highly integrated into Oracle’s cloud ecosystem. Your BICS application is a “tenant” called a “Service Instance” that is sharing a slice of a larger multi-tenant instance of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) called a “BI POD”. Each POD hosts multiple service instances.
The BI “POD”
Each BICS Service Instance is its own “application” with its own Web Catalog Slice, RPD, Security Store Stripe and Identity Domain. Each Service Instance maintains a dedicated BI Server process. All other processes related to your service are shared with other tenants on the POD.
