Guest Author

Oracle today announced the availability of Oracle
Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 2 (12.1.0.2). It is now available for download on
OTN
on ALL platforms.
This is the first major release since the launch of Enterprise Manager 12c in
October of 2011. This is the first time when Enterprise Manager release is available on all platforms simultaneously.

This is primarily a stability release which incorporates many of issues and
feedback reported by early adopters. In addition, this release contains many
new features and enhancements in areas across the board.

New Capabilities and Features

  • Enhanced
    management capabilities for enterprise private clouds:
    • Introduces new capabilities to allow customers to
      build and manage a Java Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud based on
      Oracle Weblogic Server. The new capabilities include guided set up of
      PaaS Cloud, self-service provisioning, automatic scale out and metering
      and chargeback.
    • Enhanced lifecycle management capabilities for Oracle
      WebLogic Server environments: Combining in-context multiple domain,
      patching and configuration file synchronizations.
    • Integrated Hardware-Software management for Oracle
      Exalogic Elastic Cloud through features such as rack schematics
      visualization and integrated monitoring of all hardware and software
      components.
  • The
    latest management capabilities for business-critical applications include:
    • Business Application Management: A new Business
      Application (BA) target type and dashboard with flexible definitions
      provides a logical view of an application’s business transactions,
      end-user experiences and the cloud infrastructure the monitored
      application is running on.
    • Enhanced User Experience Reporting: Oracle Real User
      Experience Insight has been enhanced to provide reporting capabilities on
      client-side issues for applications running in the cloud and has been
      more tightly coupled with Oracle Business Transaction Management to help
      ensure that real-time user experience and transaction tracing data is
      provided to users in context.
  • Several
    key improvements address ease of administration, reporting and
    extensibility for massively scalable cloud environments including dynamic
    groups, self-updateable monitoring templates, bulk operations against many
    events, etc.

New and Revised Plug-Ins:

Several
plug-Ins have been updated as a part of this release resulting in either new
