Rapid Home Provisioning Simplifies Oracle Database Estate Management

Provisioning, patching and upgrading databases across an enterprise is often performed individually on each database in the estate.  As the estate grows, this becomes a time-consuming and error-prone activity. 

Rapid Home Provisioning, one of the many new features and improvements in the just-released 12.1.0.2 version of Oracle Database, addresses this problem by simplifying and streamlining database maintenance.  With RHP, you create a single standard Oracle home by applying a new patch level once. This reference home can then be used to rapidly deploy new databases and to easily update hundreds to thousands of existing databases with a single command, without the need to apply the patches to each.  Optimizations for networking and storage use make this a very fast and efficient solution.
