  • The developers say "My code is perfect. It passed all of the unit, system and load tests".
  • The QA team says "we tested and certified the code, the SQL, and the database".
  • The DBAs say “the production servers are configured according to the specifications and have all of the latest updates.”

IOUG Oracle EM SIG Techcast: Managing Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c with Oracle Clusterware
Tuesday, January 28, 2014
12:00 p.m.- 1:00 p.m. CST

Oracle Clusterware is the glue that enables seamless failover of not only databases but also applications.

This presentation details the steps required to configure virtual host names and create an Oracle Clusterware resource for Oracle Enterprise Manager to provide seamless failover and improved high availability levels.
