Oracle DB high availability paper for ZFSSA

I read a great whitepaper today on best practices for snapshots and clones of an Oracle database on a ZFSSA.

If you use Oracle software, and are looking at the ZFSSA to store it, you want to check out this paper.  

**Sorry, I had the wrong link... Fixed... Thanks to whomever pointed that out**

Monitoring Multiple 7000s with OGC

Did you know that one can monitor and get alerts from multiple Oracle ZFSSA (7000 family) systems down to a single pane of glass?
Did you know you could also monitor the Oracle 6000 family as well as a huge variety of other systems as well?
Did you know it would not cost you anything to do this?
I bet you didn't.

OGC is a no-cost subset of Oracle Enterprise Manager. There are a large variety of Management Agents available for it, many at no cost. The 7000 and 6000 agents are free. The oracle database needed is considered an "Infrastrucre database", a separate Oracle Database that can be installed and used as a OEM Grid Control repository without additional license requirements, provided that all the targets (databases, applications, and so forth) managed in this repository are correctly licensed. This database may also be used for the RMAN repository. It may not be used or deployed for other uses.

Once you're set up, you can monitor not only the metrics from the 7000 analytic screens, but also the 7000 alerts from multiple 7000s. Very handy indeed.
