New recording available: Rapid Home Provisioning as seen at Oracle OpenWorld

In case you were not able to attend Troy Anthony's speaking session at Oracle OpenWorld 2015, then you will be pleased to know that he has produced a recorded version of the slide show and posted it here.

This presentation reviews the challenges that database administrators face when provisioning and maintaining database estates, and describes how the Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12.1 feature Rapid Home Provisioning (RHP) addresses those issues.

Dell co-presented with Troy, and their slides are included. These cover Dell's motivation for evaluating RHP, and the results and lessons learned from their proof of concept. You will also hear about Dell's planned next steps with RHP.

Happy viewing !

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.

Learn more in the Clusterware Administration and Deployment Guide and in the OOW 2014 speaking session.
