Large enterprises today have hundreds and thousands of databases of various versions, configurations and patch levels. Another challenge is around time to provision new databases. When an end user, be it a developer or a QA engineer, needs a database he or she typically has to go through an approval process, which then translates into a series of tasks for the DBA, the sysadmin and storage admin. This is a cumbersome and time-consuming process and may span days.
