Many organizations recognize the benefits and return on investment that Oracle-based business processes has brought to their business. However, as customers increasingly rely on technology, the growing complexity of the application landscapes and underlying infrastructures becomes more challenging. This is further enhanced by custom deployments and integrations, which makes each system different and unique to manage.

It also provides a complete solution to manage the entire cloud lifecycle and Oracle stack, from application to disk, through a single console.

This class is a comprehensive programme, prepared and presented by Oracle specialized sales leaders. This ensures you have all the knowledge and skills you need to effectively position, sell and support Oracle’s performance, quality and operational management solutions for Applications and Exadata.

·         The first half day is relevant for both Application Lifecycle Management AND Exadata & Cloud Management

The first half of day two will be focused on Exadata & Cloud Management.

The sessions will be lecture-based with showcases to complement. These sessions are interactive and everyone is required to participate.

Please bring to the training an understanding of what Enterprise Manager 12c does for your customers, along with your own experiences to date.

Partner Note: Set Up Exadata for Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12

Posted by Jeremy Schneider on Jan 9, 2013 at

I recently helped setup an Exadata X2-8 Database Machine with the latest version of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control ( A few documents do exist for this process – the most useful of which are the Exadata Discovery Cookbook and the Setup Automation Kit. However I found a few inconsistencies and problems; I think the existing documents I found were written on older versions of Enterprise Manager and older versions of the tools. Also there are some additional steps for older Exadatas which didn’t apply to my case.

I’m publishing my final procedure here with hopes that it helps you, but as always please cross-reference this with the appropriate documentation before doing anything in your own environment.

At this customer’s request we also configured SNMP to integrate alerting with another system – in their case, Exadata-related alerts will be raised in BMC Event Manager. I’ve also included the steps I followed to enable this; it should be easy enough to tweak my procedure here for any SNMP-compatible monitoring system.

New whitepaper: Operational Impact of Deploying Exadata

Traditionally, highly skilled and focused administrators have been responsible for managing individual portions of the technology stack. With engineered systems, lifecycle management becomes a more integrated and, ultimately, less complex environment. From a business perspective, the engineered system will result in improved performance and throughput along with reduced lifecycle management costs.

Read the full whitepaper "Operational Impact of Deploying Engineered Systems (Exadata)". Full document is available for download at the Manageability Partner Community Collaborative Workspace (for community members only - if you get an error message, please register for the Community first).

Who manages the Exadata machine?

The 2012 edition of the  Manageability Partner Community Forum (Istanbul, March 14-15, 2012) will be run in parallel with the Exadata Partner Community Forum. And this is not by chance but because there are clear areas of common interest between both.

During an Exadata sale and implementation, one of the areas of discussion at the customer -which may have a strong impact during the sales cycle- is around who has responsibility for the Exadata machine. Given that Exadata is a complete system, what should be the roles of the systems staff, the storage guys and the DBAs?

A very interesting reading is the post "Who manages the Exadata machine?", in Arup Nanda's blog. Very worth reading!
