Oracle Enterprise Manager at Collaborate15

April 12-16, 2015  •  Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas  •  #C15LV

Since the release of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, the user community has responded to the significant increased adoption of this popular product by featuring deep-dive sessions and labs in various user conferences spread all over the globe. Nowhere is this more evident than at Collaborate, a very popular user conference being held this year in Las Vegas and comprised of the respected IOUG, OAUG and Quest User Groups.  Collaborate15 has almost 50 sessions devoted to Enterprise Manager topics ranging from Private Cloud Management, Oracle technology or “stack” management and Applications Management heavily sprinkled throughout all three groups. Although some of those sessions on new features and “inside baseball” capabilities are being delivered by Oracle folks, the majority are developed and presented by experienced Enterprise Manager customers and partners.

Word is starting to get out. In fact, Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman just published an excellent blog, “Everything I Needed to Know about Enterprise Manager I Learned at Collaborate15” which takes you on a highly-descriptive day-by-day journey of all the sessions, hands-on labs, demos and SIG meetings which feature Oracle Enterprise Manager. Oracle has also published a handy guide for Collaborate15 attendees to help build their schedules, called “FocusOn Enterprise Manager at Collaborate15” which is duplicated below for your convenience.

The Oracle Enterprise Manager product group will also have a solid contingent present through-out the conference so please stop by the Oracle Demogrounds area and check out the OEM demo kiosks. See you there!

Q&A: The Cloud Journey with Enterprise Manager

On last week's Enterprise Manager webcast, we had a great opportunity to catch up on the latest product news and hear how Enterprise Manager is helping companies transition to the cloud. We specifically focused on new capabilities around Platform as a Service for databases and middleware. You can still view the webcast on demand.

As a speaker on the webcast, I really enjoyed seeing the high number of questions in the text chat window - that's maybe the most fun part! Here are some of the questions & answers we had. (They've been slightly edited for clarity.) As always, you're welcome to comment via the blog.

Q: Do you recommend a DBA onsite or do you provide DBA support?
A: Either way. You can have your own DBA managing your database private cloud, or hire a consultant from Oracle or an Oracle partner. The important thing is that a DBA can support many more databases once users have self-service.

Q: Please explain provisioning of a schema in the database.
A: Schema as a Service allows you to deploy a schema and use it as if it were a separate DB - but with the benefits of consolidated management at the DB layer. In Database 12c, this is achieved using multi-tenant, pluggable DBs.

Q: What is Showback?
A: Showback is like chargeback, except that no money actually changes hands. IT is just showing the users how many resources they used.

Q: In Database Replay, does the workload run on an actual production-like environment, or is it just a simulation?
A: Database Replay allows you to replay the captured workload on the actual proposed environment. This is often useful for upgrade exercises and testing new configurations.

Q: Yes, but if consolidation is in planning stage, then the actual proposed environment won't be there. Are you talking about proposed environment in the cloud only?
A: Using Consolidation Planner, you can simulate the workload and arrive at the target environment requirement for a specific set of workloads. Also, using Real Application Testing and SQL Performance Analyzer, you can test using captured workloads and replay them. 

Q: Can EM provision MS SQL Server, and can EM provision in the Azure or Amazon cloud?
A: EM has no out of box capabilities for provisioning non-Oracle DBs. Current capabilities are focused on private cloud. Provisioning for public cloud is on the roadmap.

Q: Can you buy plugins for MS SQL Server?
A: Yes, plugins are available for non-Oracle DBs, including SQL Server, Sybase, DB2. The Oracle Extensibility Exchange on OTN has a list of available plugins from Oracle and from third party sources.

Q: I have a customer that wants to use Azure Pack as their provisioning UI. Can EM talk to Azure Pack in order to do this?
A: Yes, your customer can use Oracle Cloud APIs and build the relevant application for provisioning.

Q: So would Oracle Cloud APIs be an integration layer to Azure Pack?
A: You need to write your own code to integrate the Oracle private cloud solution into any third party solution.

Q: What's difference between full and snap clone?
A: As the names suggest, a full clone is a copy of the source database - it will occupy the same amount of space as the source. Snap Clone is a sparse copy of the source database, where the copy will occupy very little space on the disk as it uses copy-on-write storage technology.

Q: So Snap Clone only stores the changes and reads most data from the source?
A: Snap Clone stores only changes made in the clone copy. 

Q: In Snap Clone, what is the continuous refresh from production?
A: When you clone a database (typically from production to either a test or dev environment), there may be a need to refresh the clone on a regular basis.

Q: What is drift tracking?
A: Using the new configuration management features, you can define a configuration standard for your databases. If there is a deviation, you can get a report (typically called) drift analysis.

Q: What are some of the critical security-related configurations that you recommend for DB12c?
A: EM12c can be used to track and enforce compliance, including industry standards such as PCI or customer policies created and monitored by EM itself. 

Q; With self-service DBaaS, can the end user can update or upgrade the database or DB home?
A: The end user (Self Service User) can upgrade the database service that he/she created earlier. Only Cloud Admin can upgrade Oracle Homes.

Q: Can you explain this with an example?
A: The Cloud Admin will upgrade all Oracle Homes in a Pool to the next patchset release. Now, SSA users can subscribe to upgrade the database services they created. If SSA users do not do so by a certain time, the Cloud Admin can force-upgrade their databases.

Q: What is the difference between a hosting environment and a cloud?
A: Resource abstraction, metering, chargeback, self-service, and a few other things are industry-accepted characteristics of a cloud.

Q: Is dev/test in the public cloud, and production in the private cloud, the most common architecture?
A: It's definitely very common. Dev/test environments are often temporary in nature and that lends itself very well to public cloud.

Q: What's the difference between Exadata and Exalogic?
A: Both are Oracle hardware systems. Exadata is optimized for databases, whereas Exalogic is meant for Oracle middleware and applications.

Q: Thank you for answering all my questions. Great webcast!
A: Thanks so much! Glad we got the opportunity to share the news.

After the Conference: Enterprise Manager at Collaborate14

Attendees at the Collaborate14 User Conference held in Las Vegas earlier this month were offered fantastic opportunities to hone their expertise in Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c (EM) while building a network with increasing numbers of IT professionals focusing their passions around EM.  These pros seek to take advantage of EM’s ability in a quest to reduce downtime, improve staff productivity, reduce capital expenditures and increase IT agility while lowering the cost of managing IT.

There was certainly a lot from which to choose, as I reported in my prior blog.   After getting back from the conference and attending several of those sessions, it seemed as if EM was everywhere!  Well over fifty Collaborate14 lectures, workshops, expert sessions and quick-tip sessions featuring EM exclusively or significantly were delivered.  Most of the sessions were given by partners and customers, all of whom desire to share their significant EM expertise with others. 

On pre-conference Monday, the three hands-on workshops (Cloud Odyssey, Oracle Database  Lifecycle Management and Application Management for Oracle EBS) were fun and deeply educational, proving you had to be there in order to appreciate fully.  And the conference sessions were well attended both in person and online, covering the waterfront in terms of effectively managing the enterprise.

Just some of the focus areas:

  • Techniques and best practices to monitor and manage the IT environment effectively through the use of the EM framework and through EMCLI
  • Deep-dives into Oracle Database 12c in diagnosing, tuning and managing the lifecycle of Oracle Database 12c
  • How to provide and manage Oracle in the cloud, specifically in the area of Database as a Service (DBaaS) and quick provisioning of the storage it goes with
  • Advanced management of Oracle Applications

I would be remiss to not mention the new Special Interest Groups (SIGs) formed or being formed around Enterprise Manager.  In addition to the networking opportunities and the one-to-one best practice sharing that naturally occurs when like-minded folks get together, SIGs work to enhance critical skills and foster professional growth.  Make sure you sign up for them so you don’t miss out on the events being planned.  At the conference:

  • IOUG’s rapidly growing Enterprise Manager SIG drew at least fifty at their “Birds of a Feather” meeting.  Request to join this SIG here.  More info about this SIG and how to join it is at the IOUG Enterprise Manager SIG Community site.
  • The IOUG Cloud Computing SIG, considered a companion to EM since it prominently features it, had a good crowd.  Find out more at the IOUG Cloud Computing SIG.
  • An inaugural OAUG Enterprise Manager for Oracle Applications SIG formation meeting had significant attendance and interest.  Look for more about this SIG and how to participate in it in a future post. 

Wire-to-wire it was well worth it, and next year it will be even more so.  Until that time, expect to hear a lot from the regional user groups and the SIGs about EM.

Database Cloning in Minutes using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Snap Clone

Date: Tuesday, December 3 , 2013
Time: 7:00 a.m. PST | 10:00 p.m. EST

Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Snap Clone allows administrators to create fully functional copies of databases using the copy-on-write capabilities of the underlying storage layer. Users can request databases from Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c's self-service portal and have them provisioned within minutes instead of hours while keeping storage needs to a minimum. Part of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Management Pack for Oracle Databases, Snap Clone can fundamentally improve the efficiency and agility of administrators and QA engineers while saving storage costs and other capital expenses.

Join us for this webcast to learn how Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Snap Clone can help:

  • Leverage storage copy-on-write technologies for fast provisioning
  • Integrate cloning with other Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Lifecycle Management features, such as data masking and sub-setting
  • “Time travel” across multiple database snapshots to restore and access past data
  • Reduced administrative overhead from integrated lifecycle management
