Has it really been two months since Cloud Manager Image 10 was released? It seems like it was just yesterday. I have to say, everyone I’ve spoken to or heard from is raving about the new features we’ve added. It was a major release. If you want to hear for yourself, listen to this podcast from our friends at psadmin.io.
Podcast: Cloud Manager 10 Review
It’s a conversation between Dan Iverson from psadmin.io and Graham Smith from Cedar Consulting (Version 1). They review the new features in Cloud Manager 10 and give a few additional thoughts as well I won’t give it away, I’ll just say, you'll never think about passwords the same again.
One of the points that Graham brings up is that it doesn’t take a network specialist to install Cloud Manager any longer. Finally! Is there anything worse than struggling with an install? The Resource Manager in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is used to create the resources and network where Cloud Manager is deployed. That’s much easier and less error prone than doing it by hand. It opens the door to a new type of user – one quite not as technically savvy.
Why is this important? Jump to the end of the podcast where the case is made to run PUM environments in OCI. Every customer on 9.2 runs PUM environments. When a new image is released it must be downloaded, deployed, provisioned, attached to dev environments, examined and used. Cloud Manager automates this entire process. In Graham’s words ‘… why wouldn’t you use Cloud Manager for that? It’s a no brainer.”
