Hey, Hey DBAs--Do you have a plan for implementing a Database Cloud?
Here's what you need to know:
DBaaS is a cloud model that enables users to request database environments by choosing from a pre-defined service catalog using a self-service provisioning framework.
The key benefits of these database clouds are agility and faster deployment of database services.
Organizations are looking at DBaaS because it can simplify IT infrastructures and automate provisioning processes. So it makes it possible to deliver database functionality to many users and multiple divisions from the same hardware and software infrastructure.
What's the ideal Oracle DBaaS configuration?
Start with Oracle Database 12c. Its multitenant architecture option makes it possible to enable DBaaS as part of a comprehensive cloud strategy. It allows collections of pluggable databases to be easily managed as a single entity, which maximizes consolidation density and simplifies administration.
The next key element: Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c. It's designed to manage the entire database cloud deployment lifecycle, from planning, testing and deployment to ongoing operations and performance monitoring.
Finally, the exceptional deployment platform for DBaaS: Oracle Exadata. A fully integrated and sophisticated engineered system from Oracle that supports multiple deployment models, multiple workloads and multiple service levels from one integrated, optimized platform.So, start thinking about the Database Cloud, deploying DBaaS and the value it can bring to your environment.
Here are some expert resources to help you come up to speed.
